Jets a possible trading partner for Bills?

Following up on his report from earlier this morning stating that the Buffalo Bills don't plan on getting out of Round 1 of the 2010 NFL Draft without a quarterback, Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has expanded the rumor. Again reporting via Twitter:

Hearing the Bills want back in the first round for (Florida QB Tim) Tebow and the Jets could be the potential landing spot for the trade...

This morning, Bunting speculated that Tebow might be Buffalo's target, but also mentioned Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen as a possibility. He also didn't mention whether or not the Bills would try to maneuver up or down the draft board to get their top-rated quarterback.

The Jets hold the No. 29 overall pick, and are reportedly looking to trade out of the first round entirely. Trading back up that high for Buffalo could entail moving the team's second- and third-round picks this year, Nos. 41 and 72, respectively, though they could get another lower-round pick back from the Jets in that scenario (according to the draft value chart, picks 41 and 72 are worth 720 points, as compared to 640 for No. 29 alone). Future picks may be considered as well if the report is accurate.

Buffalo holds the No. 9 overall pick, and from the sounds of it, they don't consider Tebow worthy of that selection. Only five more hours to go, folks - then we can talk actual developments, and not hypotheticals.
