Bills 53-Man Roster Projection: The Tarvaris Jackson Effect


To put things very mildly, the Buffalo Bills were very busy this weekend. Not only did their starters play a full half in a pre-season loss to Pittsburgh, but the team made ten roster moves to get down to 75 active players, and is apparently on the verge of wrapping up a trade for veteran quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.

That's a lot of change to try to incorporate into a 53-man roster projection - but we'll make the attempt nonetheless as a way to kick-start our Monday morning coverage. There's plenty more of Jackson coming your way soon; for now, head on in after the jump for my latest roster projection.
