TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
When the Buffalo Bills released QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, it wasn't one of those all of a sudden, blindside cuts, he wants everyone to know. They've been talking about a for a week or two, but Fitzpatrick still nonetheless feels hurt by the decision. "It was a lot of just private conversations. It was nice for it to be kind of left between me and (general manager Buddy Nix) and not played out through the media," he said, via Dan Hanzus of NFL.com "It stinks. I really did enjoy being a Buffalo Bill, and unfortunately we couldn't get anything worked out." So with that, Fitzpatrick will be out looking for work. His starter days seem to be over and he'll likely latch on with some team as a backup. He showed flashes in Buffalo, and frequent regressions as well.

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...

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...

Raiders considering giving Vince Young a workout?

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.
