The free agency tampering period has been open for a day and a half. Who is getting calls?

Eight opinions on what the Bills might do in free agency - BuffaloBills.com

BuffaloBills.com brings together eight analysts' opinions on the Buffalo Bills free agency period. Who they should pursue and sign, who they should avoid, etc. It's pretty unanimous that the Bills need a tight end and safety (with that safety being Jairus Byrd). Positions of note exclude defensive end and cornerback.

"The Bills have had a long history of trading starters when they are set to become too costly or just losing them to the free-agent market. Marshawn Lynch and Donte Whitner are just two examples. In the case of Byrd, they apparently didn't want to pay two safeties. They paid more than $6 million a year to extend the contract of safety Aaron Williams. Byrd was going to cost more, so this was purely a business decision. Plus, talks with Byrd have been tough for more than a year."
