Scott Pitoniak: I'm back after writing three more books
Pitoniak comes up for air to discuss Ryan Fitzpatrick and Ryan Nassib, plus a book update he's working on with Steve Tasker.

Bills Shouldn't Gamble On Suspect QB Class In The First Two Rounds | Bob Matthews, WHAM
"Under the circumstances, I believe the Bills should use the No. 8 pick on a linebacker and their second-round pick on a wide receiver. I’d select at least one – and possibly two – QBs in the rest of the draft and hope to get lucky."

Tim Graham put this mock draft compilation together. Cordarrelle Patterson leads the way with four selections with Geno Smith right behind him at three. Chance Warmack gets two picks while a host of other folks are slotted in by one prognosticator.

Assembly shouldn’t try to reopen lease deal with Bills - The Buffalo News
"It’s possible that the push for more-stringent requirements is nothing more than political theater – a way for downstate legislators to show that they are keeping an eye on what Western New York is getting from Albany. That would be business as usual in Albany."

In case you missed it

-The Buffalo Bills have signed a single free agent so far, bringing LB Manny Lawson into the fold. He'll be able to help the team be multi-dimensional.

- Buddy Nix got recorded talking on the phone.

- Ryan Fitzpatrick was released. He talked about his time in Buffalo during a great phone interview with Joe Buscaglia. We won't link to all the reactions on Fitzpatrick leaving because we already did.

- Andy Levitre signed with the Titans for just under $8 million per season.They also lost his backup, Chad Rinehart, to the Chargers.

- The Bills were able to get Leodis McKelvin to re-sign for just over $4 million a season, and not the $5 million that was initially reported.
