It surprised me, really, that there are this many quality players still available - and it gives me hope that between the draft and FA, the Bills might actually be satisfied with their roster come summer. Furthermore, it gives me confidence that if the Bills aren't signing certain players at certain positions it isn't necessarily because there is no one available, but maybe because they're confident they can get a viable upgrade from the college ranks.

A thought I had regarding the linebackers - perhaps some of the older LB's who traditionally played OLB might be able to have more success being moved to the inside? Seems to me if they're fast enough to be on the outside they should be athletic enough to be moved inside, especially as stop-gaps for a year or two until we have young guys capable of filling those roles.

Our receiver situation is such a major concern to me. At this point we have to rely on Graham and Easley to instantly become major contributors. That scares the hell out of me.

Not saying that he is the greatest WR in football but who is going to line up there? As far as I am concerned the Bills still need AT LEAST 2 (maybe 3) NFL caliber WR. As far as I am concerned they have 1 at the moment. I liked Nelson but he was hurt and I thought that Donald Jones was terrible. I think that I could have covered that guy. I had no problem with getting rid of those guys but I do have a problem with not replacing them. I think that the majority of the people that you could replace them with would be considered an upgrade.

I dunno, but if we cut Barnett 'cuz we thought he'd lost it, last year Bart Scott looked lost it x 3

Yeah Barden and Brandon Moore are two guys I would have thought the Bills would be interested in.
