As would I. But I just don't like the idea of letting one of the best in the game go.

I know Takeo has suggested getting a tackle and moving Glenn to the right side (or inside to guard)...though Long would cost a pretty penny. Smith might not be a bad add at CB to play across from Gilmore.
Brian Hartline likely gone too.

Levitre is a bit over-rated imo. He's good don't get me wrong but he isn't elite. Gailey hid the offensive line with quick passes. I expect this to show more this season

Welker and Hartline reportedly close to re-signing with their current teams.

Ed Werder reporting that Ravens don't expect to re-sign Kruger, so he is certainly an option for the Bills.

Interesting. Williams, Anderson, Ellerbe. Going after some pretty heavy free agents last 2 years.

How would you compare it to when they got Spikes, Milloy, Adams back in the 2003?

Better.(If Anderson ever plays lol) Adams was okay but his better days were behind him.

I would love to see Kruger more than ellerbee to be onest

Get him and Scott (for cheap) and the Bills defense has potential to be a top 10 next year.

Merriman retired today.

Also the Bills are apparently very interested in Geno Smith... may trade up to make sure they get him.

I'm all in favor of going after Ellerbe. I'm not entirely sold on Kruger, but that's because it would really depend on what system Pettine decides to run. He's a good edge rusher, but we also have Anderson. Ellerbe shores up the LB corps in a less redundant way.

Completely depends what you need. Ellerbe is a vastly superior in coverage. Plays the run pretty well too. Kruger is more of an Edge Specialist.... Bills really don't need that.

Bryan Scott re-signed. I'm sure Pettine likes his versatility.

And Dorin Dickerson tendered. Most likely an h-back in Marrone's system.

Merriman retired awhile ago. He was a waste in his 2 year tenure.

God no. Not Geno. PLEASE. Trading up from 8th to 7th would be stupid.

Wouldn't necessarily be to seventh. We'd need to jump the Cardinals and probably Raiders. I think we'd need to trade with Kansas City or Jacksonville to ensure we get Smith. With the news Winston was released by the Chiefs just hours ago I feel the Chiefs will just take Joeckel with their pick now.

Oakland is who I fear of getting Smith most. I think Arizona goes OT. If Geno gets past Oakland I think he's ours. Typical Raiders move would be to draft the best QB in a shallow QB class while they have HUGE needs on defense and not giving Pryor a chance.

Draftek (which runs a pretty interesting algorithm to simulate its weekly mocks, btw) has us with Patterson-Okafor-Wilson this week, which would be pretty swell imho. Previously its simmed us Geno-Okafor-Hopkins I believe (in that scenario, Arizona was taking Fisher since he was available).

The Tampa rep there came up with #8 for #13, #73, #140 (intent being to leap San Diego for Lane Johnson). If we accepted that we would have a lot of flexibility, a lot of players we might consider at 8 will likely still be there at 13, and the extra 3rd is in a great spot to draft quite a few players that would be useful to us (Patton, Pugh, Swope, etc) or we could use it in another trade.

Bowe resigned, Greg Jennings only wants to play in a warm weather city, Mike Wallace may go to Miami.

Danny Amendola may be the best WR available. Bills should try to sign him and hope Welker leaves New England.

I'd take Amendola.


I keep expecting to wake up and hear Fitz has re-structured his contract. Just get on that already so we can start thinking about more important things

I like Amendola and all signs point to him making it to the market but his injury history worries me. I'd love him on the Bills but he's so fragile. Good player if he's healthy but that's the question.

I would love to get Welker insted, but at the sametime think he's overrated. Just don't want him back in NE

Avoid at all costs. the Raiders are interested.

Was watching Sportscenter yesterday and McShay was on. He has the Bills taking some OT @ 8 that i've never even heard of.

Good kick returner. There are worse 4th/5th DBs in this league.

Average corner? By what metric? Maaaaaaaybe he's serviceable covering the slot receiver at times but if he's not returning kicks or making special teams tackles I'd rather he not be on the field. Even if he did have a "not terrible" season last year (basically the best praise you could give 2012's performance)
