Good News: Just In Buffalo Bills Confirm The Signing Of Another Top Experienced NFL Star

Wide receiver Quintez Cephus, previously suspended by the NFL for gambling violations, has inked a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, as reported by The Athletic. Cephus, a fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, faced repercussions last April when he, along with safety C.J. Moore, was released by the Detroit Lions due to an indefinite suspension for betting on NFL games.

The suspension also affected other players, including Lions wideouts Jameson Williams and Stanley Berryhill, who received six-game suspensions, and Commanders defensive end Shaka Toney, whose suspension extended through the entirety of the 2023 season. However, earlier this month, Cephus was among the players reinstated by the NFL.

Expressing gratitude for his opportunity with the Bills, Cephus shared his excitement on social media, signaling a fresh start with the team. Before his suspension, Cephus had demonstrated potential on the field, amassing 37 receptions for 568 yards and four touchdowns over three seasons with the Lions. However, Detroit swiftly severed ties with him following the gambling violations, emphasizing the importance of organizational values and adherence to league rules.

Joining the Bills presents a new chapter for Cephus, who steps into a roster undergoing changes, notably with the departure of key wide receivers such as Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis. With Buffalo eyeing replacements, including drafting Keon Coleman from Florida State, Cephus adds depth to the receiving corps, alongside other talents like Curtis Samuel, Khalil Shakir, Justin Shorter, Mack Hollins, and KJ Hamler. Additionally, the Bills’ investment in Dalton Kincaid in the 2023 NFL Draft underscores their commitment to fortifying offensive options for quarterback Josh Allen.
