Found March 13, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
Vince Young has been hoping to make his way back to the NFL. Some might find this hilarious because when we last saw him he was fat, broke and out of a job after embarrassingly being beaten on the Bills depth chart by Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tarvaris Jackson. If you thought Young was done as an NFL quarterback, you clearly don’t know the Raiders. Oakland is reportedly considering working out the former marginal NFL player. Yes, at quarterback. For some reason. If true, it would only be a workout and doesn’t necessarily portend Reggie McKenzie handing over a contract. The Raiders obviously need another veteran quarterback. But why even entertain this idea? Why subject your team to the sideshow that would come with Young? Why not go after somebody who was actually in the league last season? One could assume—hell, for the Raiders sake, hope—this is just a ploy to coax Carson Palmer into restructuring his contract, which is worth $13 million this season. If that’s the case, and if I were ...

How Does Manny Lawson Fit into the Buffalo Bills Defense?

The Bills made their first splash (any time you sign a player in free agency, it’s always a SPLASH) of the 2013 NFL offseason by bringing in LB Manny Lawson, leaving the Buffalo Bills Tank Tyler away from having each member of the 2005 NC State Defensive line under contract at some point or another. Speaking of which, I wonder if Mario Williams had anything to do with signing....

Manny Lawson Didn’t Know What He’s Getting Himself Into In Buffalo

It’s not as though linebacker Manny Lawson hasn’t experienced his share of losing in his NFL career. After being drafted in the first round by the 49ers in 2006 draft, he spent five less-than-triumphant seasons in San Francisco before departing just as Jim Harbaugh arrived to turn the franchise back into a contender. He has, however, spent the last two years in Cincinnati, a...

Bills Release QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Buffalo Bills have released QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. This move has been rumored to coming for months now and the leaked conversation involving Bills GM Buddy Nix further suggested that Fitzpatrick was not going to be brought back. Nix actually referred to him a backup quarterback. Fitzpatrick was due a $3 million roster bonus tomorrow. Given that...

Bills' Williams donates cars to Houston police

A year ago, Mario Williams left Houston to play in Buffalo. It ended a vaguely strained six-year relationship with the city of Houston. The Texans drafted Williams, a defensive end, instead of Vince Young and Reggie Bush, which was an unpopular decision at the time. And then Williams set out being one of those guys who plays well (a two-time All Pro) but always leaves you wondering...

Buffalo Bills, Geno Smith To Meet On March 22

(Source: Joe Robbins/Getty Images) While the Buffalo Bills haven’t been making noise so far in free agency, it doesn’t mean they aren’t out working on trying to improve their team. The top projected quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft, Geno Smith, is scheduled to meet with the Bills on March 22nd. The meeting was confirmed by Smith earlier today after his pro day workout on the...

My ode to Ryan Fitzpatrick

I wrote a piece yesterday about loyalty and Ryan Fitzpatrick's decision to stay in Buffalo. I was hoping for his sake, Ryan would have seen loyalty as a reason to stay in the place that gave him his first shot. Yeah, I'm not going to lie, I'm so bummed out about Buffalo sports these days that I'm just looking for a corny happy ending for someone - anyone -  at this...

Report: Vince Young Talking to Raiders

I think sometimes the Raiders are just trolling like Kanye West, just to get us to pay attention to them. Don’t expect VY signing with the Silver and Black any time soon, but never say never. These are the Raiders we are talking about. Young is in talks with the Raiders about visiting them for a workout, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Rapoport cautioned that those talks...

The Fitzmagic Is Gone

There’s no finer way for the Ryan Fitzpatrick era to end in Buffalo than to have his release tipped by a Buddy Nix phone conversation that was prompted by a prank. Great success all around for Fitzmagic and for the Bills. A shame that Kevin Costner won’t get to act this out in that movie that was once about the Bills but is now about the Browns. Let’s try to remember the good...
