For five months, the Buffalo Bills have rebuffed trade overtures surrounding running back Marshawn Lynch. According to Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin, Buffalo's stance may have changed, as he reports - citing an NFL source - that the Bills have "put out word" that they're listening to Lynch trade offers.

The NFL's trade deadline is October 19, exactly three weeks from today.

Lynch has seen the bulk of Buffalo's rushing workload over the past two games, carrying 30 times for 143 yards in losses to Green Bay and New England. Many people speculated that the Bills were giving Lynch open auditions for a potential trade, and if Wilde's report is accurate, that speculation might prove to be true.

Wilde reports that Green Bay remains a possible suitor, and, citing the same source, indicates that the Packers did contact the Bills about Lynch's availability prior to the two teams meeting in Week 2.

Previous reports have sent mixed signals about what the Bills would like in return for Lynch, ranging from a fourth-round pick to a pick and a player. The team has stated multiple times that they have no interest in trading Lynch, but these rumors continue to circulate.
