Buffalo Bills: Sources tell us the Bills have requested permission to speak with Mike Pettine of the Jets for their defensive coordinator position.
Pettine has been Rex Ryan's right hand man going back to his days in Baltimore. He played a big role in helping Rex install the defense. A change might be good for him to get out of Rex's shadow. Right or wrong (I'd wager heavily on wrong), there might be a perception out there he is a figurehead. Pettine does a lot of heavy lifting with the Jets. I'm prepared to see the Jets lose him, but I hope it's not to a division rival.
