NFL free agency rumors 2014: live discussion

Rick Stewart

Bills fans discuss the second day of NFL free agency, hoping against hope that it brings better news about their favorite football team.

Day one of 2014 NFL free agency is in the books, and this is your open thread to discuss all of the events of day two in the comments section below.

Tuesday was a very busy day for Buffalo Bills news, so let's do a quick rundown of yesterday's events before even more news starts to roll in today:

Jairus Byrd signs with the Saints

Byrd did not last long as an unrestricted free agent, striking gold with a six-year, $54 million contract with $28 million guaranteed. That's how the year-long Byrd contract saga came to an end. Buffalo is now likely in the market for a replacement at safety, even after re-signing Aaron Williams last week.

Nolan Carroll (CB) scheduled to visit Bills

We could fairly reliably guess that the Bills would be interested in improving their depth at cornerback following a tumultuous, injury-plagued 2013 season at the position. Carroll is their first target; the four-year veteran played a good amount in Miami, and has the size (6'1", 205) that the Bills prefer at cornerback.

Dan Carpenter re-signs

The Bills brought back their kicker on a four-year deal - financial terms have not yet been disclosed - ensuring competition at an important position, and that they wouldn't lose a guy coming off a career season. (The team also announced that they'd re-signed tight end Mike Caussin, who has somehow been with the organization for five different seasons now.)

Kevin Kolb released

Reports surfaced on Tuesday that Kolb is still battling concussion issues, several months removed from his preseason injury, and Bills GM Doug Whaley told reporters that Kolb had failed a physical, leading to his release. The Bills saved $3.1 million against the salary cap by releasing Kolb.

To kick-start the discussions today, here are a couple of tweets that hint at potential story lines today involving a linebacker target and tight end Scott Chandler:

The comments section is all yours, Bills fans. Here's to a better Wednesday than Tuesday - even with a massive winter storm wreaking havoc in Western New York.
