Just some thoughts on this whole New York Jets trade and how it's got plenty of us spooked.

Food for thought:

Bills current holes:

  • Quarterback
  • Wide Receiver

  • Defensive Line

If the Buffalo Bills intend to move up in the 2018 NFL Draft for a franchise quarterback, the New York Jets made their journey a bit more difficult.

The Jets pulled off a trade with the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, leaping from the sixth overall pick in April's draft to the third overall pick. The move puts New York in position to select one of the top quarterbacks on the draft board.

Earlier in the week, the Jets re-signed last year's starting quarterback Josh McCown, and also signed free agent quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Orchard Park, NY (WGR 550) - The Buffalo Bills appear to be done with any significant free agent moves. General manager Brandon Beane gave a pretty clear indication of that when he met with the media here Friday morning.

March has roared in like the lion it’s purported to be, both weather-wise here in Buffalo and football news-wise with the Buffalo Bills.

Three-year starter at quarterback? Traded to the Cleveland Browns. Franchise-caliber left tackle? Traded to the Cincinnati Bengals. Add in the trades last season of Sammy Watkins and Marcell Dareus and what you’ve got left is one player, Jerry Hughes, with a salary cap figure north of $10 million. If it wasn’t obvious already, the Bills under Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane are all about clearing the decks.

Here is the ful transcript from Kyle Williams' conference call with the Buffalo media shortly after re-signing a one-year deal to return for his 13th NFL season:


Q: Congratulations. I understand that you had made up your mind even before the season ended, but what does the significance of today mean for you, coming back to the team?

By now, I think we can all come to the same predictable conclusion: the Buffalo Bills are moving up in the 2018 NFL Draft to draft a quarterback. If you’re still on the other side of the fence, here’s a tweet from senior NFL writer Charles Robinson from Yahoo Sports!:
