Look: LB Sam Cowart (heel) goes to the Jets; QB Jeff Blake (foot) remains unsigned, but also wants too much money, especially coming off the injury; SS Blaine Bishop (ankle) didn't pass a Bills physical after suffering an ankle injury that some speculated was career-threatening. Interestingly, Bishop replaced Moore in Philadelphia, with the Eagles obviously feeling that an ankle injury was a better injury to take a chance with than a knee tear . . .
Don't expect Eddie Robinson to come to Buffalo if the Bills are going to offer him less than the Titans offer him. It's simple economics . . .
There has been an explosion of One Bills Drive activity the past couple of days. Here's how I assess the likelihood of these players who've visited ending up in Bills uniforms:
LT Bryant McKinnie, Miami – Not likely.
DE, Charles Grant, Georgia – Not likely.
LT Mike Williams, Texas – Better shot than McKinnie, but I worry that he played RT instead of LT.
SS Roy Williams, Oklahoma – Good possibility, especially if Buffalo trades down. I wouldn't however, take him as a top-10 pick, even if he's projected that high. I just wouldn't do that for a strong safety.
DT Albert Haynesworth, Tennessee – Good possibility; I think he's the heavy DT Buffalo needs – and I'd take him ahead of SS Roy Williams, but Haynesworth wasn't overly impressive in the Combine weight room. But then I don't care about that. Haynesworth could be available in a trade-down situation too.
SS Damon Moore, Philadelphia Eagles, Unrestricted Free Agent – Not likely, especially with Jenkins aboard.
CB Jason Simmons, Pittsburgh Steelers, Unrestricted Free Agent – Not likely. Would be a nickel or even a dimeback (with Chris Watson re-signed) and special teams player.
Talk with Shout!'s Lary Bump and Mike Doser in the Shout! chat room during NFL Draft 2002, April 20-21. They'll be at Bills headquarters covering the activity.
