That’s an interesting line of thinking. During this offseason, the Buffalo Bills lost Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin to big-money free agent contracts. They were able to sign a few receivers for less money, but head coach Sean McDermott doesn’t seem to think that will be a problem.

Obviously, he’s a player on our team...

Last week, we told you that former Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan was hired at ESPN to become a panelist on Sunday NFL Countdown.

The latest NCAA makes things worse by forcing Kentucky writer to...
Darrelle Revis and the New England Patriots seem like a natural fit.Revis was a colossal bust with the New York Jets last season despite banking on a huge contract.

Percy Harvin came out of retirement last season to play with the Buffalo Bills, although that stint was brief and short. He played in two games and started one, but only registered two catches for six yards and one rush for 11 yards.
