There were 10 deals made before Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline, and the Buffalo Bills made 20% of those moves (two, to be exact), acquiring dynamic running back Nyheim Hines and safety Dean Marlowe from the Indianapolis Colts and Atlanta Falcons, respectively.
Now that the dust has settled, today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks leads off by assessing how Buffalo’s two deadline trades address needs and make the team better for a stretch run filled with promise and potential.
