Do old-guard NFL owners hold enough ill will over USFL lawsuit to block Donald Trump from buying the Buffalo Bills - NY Daily News

"It’s very hard to answer that question. He did try to bring the NFL down," one NFL owner told the Daily News. "Certainly, a lot of owners aren’t around anymore. Maybe some of the new guys wouldn’t bear the same type of resentment that some of the older guys would. Do you think he would be a good partner for us or be somewhat of a maverick and be in it for himself? All questions that have to be asked. It’s not just the USFL stuff. Who knows how serious he is. He likes to have his name out there. Let’s put it this way: I don’t think his confirmation would be a slam dunk."

Wood 'all for' Bills going offensive line early in draft - AFC East Daily
"Anytime we can add what should be a really talented player to our offensive line group I'm all for it," he said. "I would assume he'd come in and compete for a position, and anytime you're competing for a starting spot and we have more talented bodies in there, it's going to make us all better. If that was the case I'd be all for it, but that's completely out of my hands."

In Depth, Buffalo's Safety Position -
"Unless the Bills use a 1st or 2nd day draft choice on a safety, it would be wise for them to include Corey Graham as part of the rotation during training camp. He could provide a veteran presence and also add another layer of competition at the free safety spot."
