Bills wise to stay out of Kolb talk

4

The good NFL franchises always seem to find the bargains on underrated talent. Meanwhile, bad teams waste valuable resources on players that will never live up to their ridiculous hype. Word this week out of Seattle is that the Seahawks are prepared to offer a first and third round pick to obtain quarterback Kevin Kolb from Philadelphia. This is the same Seahawks team that once traded a first rounder for Deion Branch and a third rounder for Charlie Whitehurst. When the league resumes operations, the bidding war for Kolb is sure to also include quarterback-desperate Arizona (and possibly Cleveland or Miami). The Buffalo Bills have remained absent from discussions about Kolb, and let's hope that it remains that way. I'm not the biggest supporter of Ryan Fitzpatrick, but the team just can't afford to take a huge gamble on a career backup that has only shown some flashes of being anything better than average. In fact, the growing publicity around Kolb is eerily similar to a guy named Rob Johnson, who suckered the Bills just over a ten years ago. Originally a fourth round pick, Johnson sat the bench for two full seasons before one strong start in 1997 caught the eyes of teams around the league. Buffalo packaged a first and fourth round pick (along with a $25 million contract) for Johnson, who started a decade-long run of pathetic signal callers.
