Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 18 vs HOU (5 / 4 / 50 / 1 rec)
Holmes did some damage in fourth quarter garbage time after Michael Crabtree went to the locker room. He went up high in traffic to come down with a 20-yard reception over the middle. Later in the drive, he drew a big 25-yard pass interference penalty on third-and-long when he was held trying to come back and make a play on the ball. The next play, Holmes caught a slant for an 8-yard touchdown. Johnathan Joseph had relatively tight coverage, but Holmes used his 6'4 frame to box out the smaller corner and go up and make the tough catch.
2016 Week 16 vs IND (5 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)
Holmes is getting some snaps as the fourth receiver in the red zone offense. He drew a pass interference call in the end zone on a fade route. Two plays later, Carr again went back to him in his one-on-one outside matchup and Holmes made a nice diving catch for a 1-yard touchdown. It's worth noting that Holmes showed a great rapport with Matt McGloin in the preseason and he may be a favored target of the backup quarterback going forward. McGloin's first pass attempt in relief was a 10-yard completion to Holmes.
2016 Week 9 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)
Picked up 17 yards on a key early 3rd down to move the Raiders into the red zone. Received an end zone jump ball but the route was well covered.
2016 Week 2 vs ATL (3 / 1 / 6 / 1 rec)
Holmes gets many of his snaps in the red zone due to his size and blocking ability. He caught a short touchdown in the back of the end zone in a scramble drill after Carr bought time with a sprint to his right after the initial play broke down.

However, discussions between the two sides never became serious. Our View: The Vikings lost Cordarrelle Patterson (Raiders) in free agency, so they're looking for depth at the position.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed. Our View: It's finally final. Holmes hasn't done much in recent years for the Raiders, but with the Bills he'll have a chance to get significant playing time. There's really no other threat behind Sammy Watkins at this time, so Holmes could play as a deep threat with the Bills.
link to story Bills | Andre Holmes says he has not signed (Wed Mar 15, 05:25 PM) - Correcting to a previous report, free-agent WR Andre Holmes (Raiders) said he has not reach an agreement with the Buffalo Bills at this time. Our View: It's been a couple of years since Holmes did much of note. He had 47 catches for 693 yards and four touchdowns in 2014, but he's not even come close to those numbers combined over the last two years. The Bills don't have much behind Sammy Watkins in their WR corps, so perhaps Holmes could be able to get back to 40 catches or so in 2017.
