Of all the things for the New York Jets to take seriously, one would definitely be the connection between Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback Josh Allen and receiver Robert Foster.
After it got burned by the duo earlier this season, Foster came back for more on Sunday – despite Buffalo taking a 27-23 loss at home. Since being activated from the practiced squad in November, the former University of Alabama star has turned in some quality games.
The 6-foot-2, 196-pounder recorded 105 yards receiving on three catches in the Bills’ 41-10 win over the Jets on Nov. 11.
Foster totaled seven receptions this time around (eight targets) for 104 yards, netting an average of 14.9 yards per catch. In the aftermath of releasing both Andre Holmes and Kelvin Benjamin, Buffalo feel as though Foster is the key to its future.
It will be imperative for the team to put some talent around him in the National Football League Draft, but it seems like Foster has adjusted nicely. For the months of November and December combined, he has almost had three 100-yard performances (94 yards vs. Jaguars, Nov. 25).
Sometimes entering the league undrafted can be a good thing and in Foster’s case, it is shaping out that way as he is the favorite target of Allen’s. He and the Bills will face Detroit next week.
