They've got the cap space ... a third? Second? Why not?

Is he even guaranteed to play this year?

Gee E
Is there any reason to think the Bills would trade him for that?

I'd rather they bring in Kerry Rhodes, even with all of that hooplah about him banging his male assistant or whatever the scandal is.

Byrd has some real injury concerns and won't be cheap. Rhodes is still a solid player with not much of an injury history and they could probably get him for far less. It is odd that no one has signed him yet though, which makes you wonder if there's some other issue/reason that we dont know about thats preventing him from finding work.

Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if the issue you highlighted is the primary reason he's not getting work. I agree that it would make sense to bring him in.

If they are planning on bringing someone in then it will be this weekend, not during a short week with a Thursday night game.

Rhodes is supposed to visit Giants tomorrow, I'd bet he gets signed by the weekend. I don't get why the team couldnt see problem sooner.

Rhodes would be a huge upgrade over Allen/Wolfe.

If they're not interested in him because he might be gay, that's ... uh ... well ... gay
