Isaiah McKenzie is already putting in some early offseason return work.

McKenzie recently re-signed with the Bills and following the departure of Andre Roberts to the Texans, McKenzie is in the front of the line in terms of those that could replace Roberts as a returner.

The Bills recently signed return man Brandon Powell to a contract and those two will likely battle for Buffalo’s kick return job during this offseason’s training camp. Maybe McKenzie is trying to get every advantage he can in that competition because he was working out with another new teammate on Monday.

It wasn’t Powell, rather, the Bills’ new punter Matt Haack. McKenzie posted this video on his social media account on Instagram and tagged Haack in the post:

While Powell will certainly get his looks at earning a roster spot, at least on paper for now, McKenzie is the favorite to win the job. Not only does McKenzie already play a pivotal on Buffalo’s offense as a gadget type player, he also had a nice game returning the ball in 2020.

In the Bills’ season finale, Roberts got the day off ahead of the playoffs and McKenzie got an opportunity. Roberts was very successful during his time in Buffalo, however, he never took a return in for a score. McKenzie did so last year in Week 17 on a punt.
