Rico and Evan are back at it again! This time to give their predictions on the Buffalo Bills’ 53-man roster and practice squad. They also break down the Cody Ford Trade.

Buffalo Bills Trade Cody Ford! (6:34)

The Buffalo Bills traded former second-round pick, Cody Ford, to the Arizona Cardinals. Buffalo received a 2023 5th-round pick from Arizona.

Ford was going into his 4th year with the Bills and was on the edge of making the final 53.

Cody Ford wanted to start on the Bills. In Brandon Beane’s eyes, Ford was not a player that would be starting on this current Buffalo Bills roster.

Ford is now back with some of his college teammates, Kyler Murray and Marquise Brown. They all played with one another at Oklahoma.

Cody is looking to turn the chapter in his career over in Arizona. Ford will be potentially competing for a starting spot.
