NFL: Bills sign WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling to 1-year contract


Share post:

Former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling signed a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday morning.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the Bills, however multiple media outlets reported the deal is worth up to $4.5 million.

The Chiefs released Valdes-Scantling in February as a means to free up $12 million of salary cap.

The Bills are attempting to retool their wide receiver room after trading star Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans and seeing Gabe Davis sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency. Buffalo selected Florida State wide receiver Keon Coleman with the first pick of the second round in April’s NFL draft and added free-agent acquisitions Curtis Samuel, Mack Hollins and Quintez Cephus.

A two-time Super Bowl champion, Valdes-Scantling caught a touchdown pass in the Chiefs’ 25-22 overtime win against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.

Valdes-Scantling, 29, had 63 receptions for 1,002 yards and three touchdowns in 33 regular season games (21 starts) with Kansas City from 2022-23.

The 2018 fifth-round pick played his first four seasons with the Green Bay Packers, hauling in 123 catches for 2,153 yards and 13 scores in 59 games (39 starts).
