Buffalo Bills mailbag: Manny Lawson draws questions - ESPN
Mike Rodak doesn't think Manny Lawson is a lock for the roster. It would be a cap savings of less than $1 million if released, but if he doesn't fit the new defense, it's not outside the realm of possibility. Rodak also discusses the possibility of a trade.

Position Battles to Watch in Bills' OTAs: Right Tackle | Forged in Buffalo
"The Bills have high hopes for Kouandjio, taking him with their second round draft pick. However, expect the 6’7″ Henderson to be a dark horse in this position battle. Henderson has a lot of talent and potential, and if he can stay concentrated and focused he could be a very good player for years to come."
