He may ask for too much money than buffalo is willing to spend but he is a 7 year veteran who could be a huge upgrade alongside Aaron Williams building his starter role. I know there are lots of CB's in F.A. that may be better fits but I'm curious to see what people think of him.

He's a solid CB but his contract is a bit pricey if I remember correctly. It would probably mean the end of McGee's days in Buffalo but that was prob going to happen anyways. Williams, Rout, Drayton, Leodis, and Rogers would be a solid CB corps.

Stevie Johnson can't be too happy about this. But I sure am. We can use another CB.

I think he's worth a look.  If he's worth it and we can afford to sign him. it would eliminate the need to draft a CB until day 3, if at all.

Sirius NFL Radio just reported this a few minutes ago, as well, in their 'Two Minute Drill' update.

Buddy asleep at the wheel again. I bet the titans called first. Typical Buffalo I'm so done with this team, Ralph is cheap, I think Brady just sneezed, Fitz isn't the answer and Stevie is more of a number 2

Did I miss any?

The only reason that he even called his agent was because he was cut before midnight.

Sign that man up.  If we can shore up one of our glaring weakness before the opening gun of free agency even sounds, I'm all for it.

I like the persistence. This would take a huuge load off Buddy come draft day. He loves his corners, but if we sign him we probably will wait till the 4th or 5th round.

Sometimes stats don't tell the whole story but this year Routt allowed 9 TDs and led the league in penalties with 17.

Even if it means taking the Bills out of the market for a pass rusher or a WR in free agency? We know the Bills are only going to pony up so much money, is this where you would have them spend it?

Finnegan was drafted in the 7th round out of Samford University.  Nice drafting, huh?  Hope we can build on last year's draft, we might be good in a could of years!!!
