    why not sign T.O. to a minimum contract, and see what he could do? he was productive in Cincy if I remember correctly (had him on my fantasy team). If he can't hack it, cut him in camp. Only offer a vet minimum contract. I think it's worth it. It seems as though he and Fitz had a good rapport (could be wrong). Fitz also seems to be THE ONLY QB he hasen't thrown under the bus. What are your thoughts?

    Because Blackmon is going to be taken before our pick.

    We dont need to jeopardize the little team chemistry we have to entertain this has been clown that no NFL team cares about and for good reason.

    DarylLamonica valid point, just throwing ideas out there. I see ur point also. And Blackmon will be gone. I think he's going to STL.

    i wouldnt totally be opposed to it, but its safer to just go with a WR in the first 3 rounds whoever it will be.

    Too old, blown out knee. His workout wasn't that spectacular from what I recall of the write-ups.

    There's a reason no NFL team will touch him, and I don't believe it's completely related to his baggage.

    This is a team that is trying to build something for long run, not just one season. TO is AT BEST in his last year or so of productivity, much better to get a player that at least might be able to help us out for an extended period. I would rather much rather waste the time on a few UDFAs WRS and see if we get lucky and can develop one.

    I forgot that they took away the ability for teams to trade draft picks to move up and grab a certain player.

    I suppose this was inevitable.

    At least Evans can still play.

    If this thread lasts long enough we will see Eric Moulds, Andree rreed, jmaes Lofton, Elbert Dubenion, etc etc

    even if TO had anything left in the tank, I'm pretty sure he and Buddy Nix have a bad history (from University of Tennessee at Chattanooga)

    We may have the absolute best locker room in the NFL. Mario has the right attitude. Fred, Fitz, Stevie, Barnett, Shep.

    I wouldn't want to ruin that by bringing in a one man circus with little or nothing in the tank.

    Just MO
    At the end of the day, the Pawn and the King go in the same box


    Welcome to Buffalo 2014 draft class, may you be the one that brings us to the promise land
