Stewart To Buffalo? Speculation continues as the Bills look to shore up their QB position. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that when Kordell Stewart gets released, as expected, he may end up in Buffalo. This is pure speculation but the logic behind it, is his history with Mike Mularkey and Tom Clements. Both men are credited with turning Stewart around for one year in Pittsburgh.
Henson May Get Another Look: Tom Donahoe confirmed that the Bills are interested in Drew Henson as a long term prospect. They may bring him to Buffalo for another look, that is considered essential for any team serious about trading for him. The big hurdle is whether or not Henson can agree on a deal with Houston before they trade his rights.
Winfield To Test Market: The Rochester D&C is reporting that free agent CB Antoine Winfield will indeed test the free agent market. This is not unexpected as it will be a hot market for cornerbacks. Tom Donahoe told the paper that he wanted to discuss a new deal but the agent for Winfield informed him of their desire to test free agency. Donahoe reiterated his stance that he would like to keep Winfield. The cornerback's agent said it has nothing to do with the Bills that his client wants to test the market. Donahoe also said that the Bills do not plan on placing the franchise tag on him. That would keep him essentially off the open market. The team does not have any transition tags at its disposal. The Bills are not closing the door or ending their hopes of re-signing him. A dozen or so teams may seek his services.
Free Agent Update: With Winfield testing the free agent market, the Bills are not expected to make deals with any unrestricted free agent before the start of free agency on March 3rd. They are trying to work out a deal with restricted free agent Marques Sullivan, if not they will tender him an offer. They have already re-signed Ross Tucker and plan on putting tender offers on the rest of their restricted and exclusive right free agents.
Bills Look At Banks: WNSA is reporting that the Bills took a look at former Iowas QB Brad Banks yesterday. The team continues its search for young arms at the position to groom for the future. Banks was a star for the Hawkeyes in 2002 when he led Iowa to a record of 11-1.
