Here we are almost three weeks into free agency and we have seen teams make moves to our left and to our right. Te Dolphins, Jets and Patriots have all been very active so far. The Bills have yet to really make anything happen. To some of us this is not a very good sign. As one of the BLD writers put it, we are in a rebuilding mode and for that no one will really want to come here except for the players that need to restart their careers or our looking to get couple of last years out of their bodies. It seems that the Bills are in a rebuilding mode every 3 years. Wade Phillips was the only coach to finish with a winning record coming out of Buffalo in the past decade, and since Phillips, Chan Gailey was the only one to show improvement from one year to another, all three years.
Bills need to make a commitment to more than 3 years and let a coach actually finish rebuilding the team. If they don’t, the Bills will be in rebuilding mode for the ext decade as well.
Kevin Kolb is reportedly finalizing a deal with the Bills. Great! Another Quarterback that is is just looking for another shot. If this season turns out to be a Flutie/Johnson split time arrangement, the Bills will officially be a train wreck.
Mike Jenkins, CB for the Cowboys last season, is visiting the Bills but also will be in Raider camp and has just come from the Jags camp. The likelihood that Jenkins signs with the Bills is probably slim to none and is coming off shoulder surgery before the season in 2012 but did play most of the season. Jenkins played 13 games last season and racked up a marginal 14 tackles, his lowest total since his rookie year (13 total). Coming into this year he has 1 forced fumble and has 8 interceptions, 1 for a touchdown. If Buffalo is looking for a nickel or dime CB for depth then Jenkins would be ok but nothing big will become of this signing.
