Found May 01, 2014 on NFL Trade Rumors:
  Jason La Canfora reports that the Browns have agreed to term with veteran QB Tyler Thigpen on Thursday. Thigpen and Vince Young were working out for the team this week and recent reports mentioned that the Browns were expected to sign at least one of them. La Canfora mentioned earlier in the day that Thigpen had a “very strong” minicamp this week, so it appeared as though he was the favorite to be signed. Thigpen, 30, was a seventh-round pick of the Vikings back in 2007. He has spent time with the Bills, Chiefs and Dolphins, but unfortunately sat out the entire 2013 season.

Buffalo Bills history of drafting punters and kickers has been just awful

While looking at the Bills’ all time draft list, it’s clear that the team does a terrible job at drafting Kickers and Punters. Although these two positions may not be the flashiest, they are incredibly important. Just take a look at the good teams in the NFL, they do not settle for sub par players at any position, these two positions included. That being said, lets start with...

Buffalo’s best special teams’ player not named Tasker

I was asked to write about the best punter or kicker that was ever drafted by the Bills. That is a pretty tall order since the best kicker we drafted was Gary Anderson (who was cut) and never played in Buffalo except as a member of the Pittsburg Steelers. Our best kicker (Steve Christie) was signed as a free agent and our best punter ever drafted was John Kidd and he only lasted...

Buffalo’s most hated mock draft 1.0.

The real NFL draft is six days away and we here at Cover32 continue to produce our mock drafts. I am not a draft expert so I leave that to our more capable writers on the Bills staff. But, I do know who Buffalonians and Bills fans really hate. I have consumed many a beer, sitting on a bar stool in many a Buffalo bar or tavern debating who is the most loathed and despised, player...

Remember folks, it is Smokescreen season. People are smashing players, people in the media are making noise for players, but remember at the end of the day, they might be bashing a player to get him to fall past another team so the team bashing the player can select him.  If you remember a few […] The post Remember this is ‘Smokescreen’ season; Nassib was considered a 1st...
