The Super Bowl is over and the Buffalo Bills are again undefeated. That is certainly something to get excited about. Wash our hand clean of last year and let’s keep the rebuilding rolling. Now, I’m aware the rebuilding has been going on since the departure of the beloved Jim Kelly and the boys, but with a strong second half, perhaps this is the end of the rebuilding.
Buffalo certainly need fill spots on defense and could have former NFL defensive player of the year, safety Bob Sanders in their lineup next year. He visited with the Bills last week and with contract negotiations not going well with Donte Whitner, it’s a possibility that the ex-Colt could join Buffalo. According to GM Buddy Nix they gave him a physical and they said they are going to give it some thought. You can see the full article here. They put a lot of money on Shawne Merriman and he hasn’t played a game for the Bills because of injury. Are they willing to put the same kind of money with injury prone Sanders? I bet they do.
I sometimes get worked up when I see free agents like Bob Sanders and Jeremy Shockey and think the Bills should sign these guys. It could just because they are big name players but do they have any game left? Will they be a good fit in Buffalo? Look what happened with Owens. I think from now on, I’ll stay optimistic with whoever Buffalo signs and wait to get really excited when they start the season 8 -0. A boy can dream can’t he!
