Buffalo Bills News, 3/1: Corey McIntyre's Future Undecided

Matt Sullivan

While his agent says the Bills want Corey McIntyre back, the fullback is going to test free agency. That and more in today's links.

Nix’s legacy is riding on quarterback call - The Buffalo News

"It comes down to priorities, not needs. Quarterback is their biggest need, but it doesn’t mean it’s their top priority. If Nix makes the right moves, he can satisfy both and walk away satisfied that the Bills were in better shape when he left than when he arrived."

Bucky Gleason brings good opinions to the table in this column. It's true that many GMs and draft experts don't agree on the quarterback class, and none may be worthy of the No. 8 pick. The flaw in his argument are the GMs and draft experts who do. If Buffalo waits on a quarterback they like, that signal caller could be gone. And in a class with a lot of warts, they'd better grab the one they like earlier rather than later. In an ideal world, Nix could draft his guy in the second round. Since the rookie wage scale was introduced, quarterbacks fly off the board, and that's the counterpoint that needs to be made.
