The Buffalo Bills are set to sign former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver and Super Bowl champion Marquez Valdes-Scantling to a deal to bring the veteran wideout to Kansas City, according to a report from NFL insider Jordan Schultz.

Valdes-Scantling has proven to come through in the biggest moments over the past two seasons for the Chiefs, hauling in 63 passes for 1,002 yards and three touchdowns. The possession receiver has had numerous key catches for the Chiefs in their past two Super Bowl runs, and will now enter the receiver room in Buffalo looking to provide another proven outlet for quarterback Josh Allen.

The Bills will be the third team Valdes-Scantling has played for in his career, after spending his first four seasons in Green Bay followed by the last two in Kansas City. He has gone from catching passes from Aaron Rodgers to Patrick Mahomes to Josh Allen. Talk about good fortune.

The six-year veteran has caught 186 passes for 3,155 yards and 16 touchdowns in his career.
