DiCesare: McNabb's no help if he's one and done : The Buffalo News
"A trade for McNabb would be worth reconsidering if he's open to a contract extension that would make him a Bill for three seasons. A three-year window would provide the franchise this season and next to identify and groom his eventual replacement. It would permit them to draft a young quarterback without the pressure of rushing him under center. There would be justification in making the deal. But a one-year rental of McNabb makes little sense unless the price drops 50 percent."

Five Reasons The Bills WILL Draft Jimmy Clausen : Buffalo Sports Daily
Joe Pinzone gives us the reasons the Bills will select Jimmy Clausen.

Free Agency
Josh Reed unlikely to sign with Patriots | National Football Post

"Although veteran wide receiver Josh Reed visited the New England Patriots earlier this month, it's regarded as "highly unlikely," per his agent, Ben Dogra, that he'll be signing with the AFC East franchise, according to ESPNBoston.com."

A darkhorse team for McNabb – Inside The Bills
"Paolantonio reiterated the teams that were in the hunt for McNabb’s services, those being the St. Louis Rams, Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos (a team he said that’s now out of it), Cleveland (now out of it too). Then he also mentioned Arizona and Minnesota as possibilities as well as a darkhorse team - the San Fransisco 49ers."

McNabb to Buffalo? Here's the word from Philly | wgrz.com

McNabb on the block: Why not Buffalo Bills? | Democrat and Chronicle
"I believe Buffalo also should offer a package including a second-round draft pick, a surplus defensive back and the other lower-round picks required to top the offer from St. Louis. To protect McNabb, the Bills could add an instant starter at offensive left tackle with the No. 9 overall pick. It wouldn't take much from McNabb to make Buffalo more fun to watch for two or three years."

Two teams that make sense for McNabb | National Football Post
"Why Buffalo? Because of whom they hired. Chan Gailey is an offensive head coach, and no matter what is publicly said about the collaboration of Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm, you need a quarterback in Buffalo who can compete with Tom Brady and the Patriots — a club that has owned the Bills."

Bills All-Time draft memories: Joe Ferguson

Ferguson went fishing to avoid the anxiety of draft day but it was worse when he was away from home so they returned. The Bills selected the QB 53rd overall. "Somewhere around 3 o’clock we got a call from the Buffalo Bills, which was not a team we were anticipating. We hadn’t received any information from them at all. When Buffalo came up, we were going, ‘Where’s that?’"

Report: Bills at UNLV pro day – Inside The Bills
"Along with about a dozen other NFL teams, the Bills were represented at the UNLV pro day on Thursday. Among the better prospects at UNLV for this year’s draft are center Joe Hawley, WR Ryan Wolfe, DT Martin Tevaseu and OLB Jason Beauchamp.
