Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played on both the Jaguars and Bills.

Zay Jones

Zay Jones is a wide receiver who was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. After a successful career at East Carolina University, where he set the NCAA Division I record for career receptions, Jones had a promising start with the Bills but ultimately didn’t live up to expectations.

Jones was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders during the 2019 season. He played a more secondary role in the Raiders’ receiving corps, providing depth and contributing on special teams.

This past season with the Jaguars was the best season of Jones’ career thus far racking up 82 receptions, 823 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns.

John Brown

John Brown was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Brown showcased his ability to stretch the field early on. His breakthrough season came in 2015 when he notched over 1000 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

Brown’s stint with the Cardinals was marked by consistent production but also by struggles with injuries. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens for the 2018 season, where he led the team in receiving yards, despite a mid-season quarterback change.

Brown then joined the Buffalo Bills in 2019, where he had a standout season with over 1000 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Brown then bounced around with a few teams in 2021 before landing back in Buffalo.

Marcellus Wiley

Marcellus Wiley is a former NFL defensive end who transitioned into a successful media career after his time on the gridiron. He played college football at Columbia University, where he not only stood out athletically but also showcased his intellectual prowess by earning a degree from the Ivy League institution.

Selected in the second round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills, Wiley played ten seasons in the league. Throughout his NFL tenure, he suited up for the Bills, San Diego Chargers, Dallas Cowboys, and Jacksonville Jaguars. One of his career highlights includes a Pro Bowl selection in 2001 as a member of the Chargers.

Post-retirement, Wiley made a seamless transition into the media. With his charisma, insightful analysis, and candid perspectives, he became a prominent figure on ESPN, NFL Network, and later FOX Sports.

Rob Johnson

Rob Johnson, a product of USC, was selected in the fourth round of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Though he was largely a backup to Mark Brunell during his time with the Jaguars, Johnson made an impression in his first career start, leading the Jaguars to a victory with 294 passing yards and two touchdowns.

His performance caught the attention of the Buffalo Bills, who traded for him in 1998. However, Johnson’s time in Buffalo was marked by a competitive and somewhat controversial quarterback controversy with Doug Flutie.

Following his stint in Buffalo, Johnson went on to have shorter stints with several teams, including the Buccaneers (won a ring in 2002), Redskins, Raiders, and Giants. Despite never becoming a long-term starter, Johnson remained a respected player for his abilities and commitment.

Trent Edwards

Trent Edwards was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the third round, 92nd overall, in the 2007 NFL Draft. He started as a rookie and showed promise early in his career, earning the starting quarterback position for the Bills. His best season came in 2008 when he passed for 2,699 yards and 11 touchdowns.

However, Edwards’s performance declined, and he eventually lost his starting position. After being released by the Bills in 2010, he spent time with various teams, including the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, and Chicago Bears (never saw action with the Raiders or Bears), mainly in a backup role.

His time in the NFL was marked by some bright moments, but injuries and inconsistency limited his opportunities. Edwards finished his NFL career with 6,033 passing yards and 26 touchdowns.
