Rumblings from the BillsMarch 16th, 2009 at 11:20 pm by John Murphy under 4 Warn Weather
Some interesting rumblings coming from the Buffalo Bills these days. Former All Pro guard Ruben Brown mentioned on his WECK Radio show Monday night that agent Bus Cook was at One Bills Drive, talking to the Bills. Cook is the agent for disgruntled Denver Broncos QB Jay Cutler, who formally requested a trade on Monday.
But what makes more sense, is that Cook is talking to the Bills about another one of his clients–TE Tony Scheffler (above left). Scheffler, like Cutler, is also ready to move on from the Broncos, and there were reports a few days ago that Denver was ready to give Cook authority to scout out the trade landscape.
Buffalo would be a great fit for the talented pass-catching tight end. At 6-5, Scheffler would be an outstanding downfield target for Trent Edwards, and he would fill a serious void in the Bills offensive attack. The only viable tight ends on the Buffalo roster right now are the two Dereks, Schouman and Fine. Scheffler would immediately become a starter and an important cog in the Buffalo offense.
What would it take to get Scheffler from the Broncos? Most likely a draft pick, maybe as high as a 3rd rounder. I’d make the deal in a second.
What do you think? Would Scheffler fit in with the Bills offensive plans? Would you trade away draft picks to get him?
