CFL’s top returner works out for Buffalo Bills

Playmaker Roy Finch worked out for the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday.

Finch had a stellar season leading the CFL in punt return yards (1,200) and yards per return (16.4 among players with a minimum of five tries) and his 103-yard effort for a touchdown in Week 7 against Toronto was the longest punt return so far this season. Those totals earned Finch the Most Outstanding Special Teams Player award.

He’s a dynamic weapon on offence too, producing 114 rush yards on 21 carries and recording 18 receptions for 133 yards, including 79 yards after the catch. Finch is just 26 years old which is a prime age range for NFL teams.

Along with dynamic open field ability, Finch has long speed running a 4.47 40-yard dash at the University of Oklahoma pro day in 2016. Finch was one of three players NFL teams asked for permission to workout out that played with Calgary in 2017.

  1. I wonder if he can help get the Bills to a playoff this season…………

      These tryouts are for next NFL season. I don’t believe they can legally suit up for this year after completing a CFL season.

  2. I fully expect Roy to sign with a NFL team. If released early he certainly could help a team if used properly.
