Neither of our RTs seems to be players who could not use some competition and player who will effectively be a UDFA was graded as 5th or 6th round quality pick.  With new staff I could see them taking a chance on a player who could grow with team.  Might do well as 6th lineman for goal line packages.

very interesting story. huge and athletic is a good combination. the article said he could have been a 5th or 6th rond pick, so i assume that this kid either has a low ceiling or is very raw, either way, it couldn't hurt to send a scout to watch this kid work out. if you see something you like, make an offer.

Cool story. Bills should take a good look at the kid.

I'll be interested to see if the Bills have any inside track here, considering that Bill Conaty is Bamiro's agent.

High motor?  Sure!  Bring'm in!

When it comes to the OL it is hard to make a good team and the best OL's are not always the best OL.

I recognized the name as someone who played for us but doubt many from that era are left.

And Bamiro's an unrestricted free agent and the Bills have zero cap restrictions as it pertains to street free agents.

Actually come to think of it, this would have been a good year for the Bills to get into a bidding war for the "CFL star of the Year."

I wonder how much more it would have taken the Bills to win the Cameron Wake sweepstakes. It still burns my ass that they lost out to the Dolphins.

He wasn't here that long but he was a decent O- lineman. I want to say 2,000's?

97-02. I was close.

Guy would have been in college from 2008 to 2014? John Blutarski?

He was never made aware of the NCAA eligability restrictions?

Sat out a year transferring, then redshirted. Not that strange.

He's a pretty raw prospect, but he signed with the Iggles.
