Free agents began to look for jobs elsewhere at 9:01 p.m. last night after the final round of cutting rosters down to 53. There are at least some free agents I’d love the Buffalo Bills to consider signing and at least one could be considered controversial at best.
Deion Branch - Deion is a smart crafty veteran wide receiver who knows every route to run. Also Deion has won two Superbowls with the New England Patriots and was named the Superbowl XXXIX MVP. He could also provide valuable insight into Bill Belichick’s mindset and coaching plans.
Dan Koppen - Dan is an intelligent center who is an excellent blocker in the passing and running games. Also from New England, he could help the Bills defensive line learn how to get better penetration though the Patriots’ offensive line. Additionally, as one of the bigger name free agents (if you actually wanted to make a list), he would be a great deal better than current reserve interior lineman Colin Brown.
Marvin McNutt – McNutt is a 6′ 4″ 214 lb. 6th round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles and is currently on their practice squad. He has the record for most touchdown receptions in the University of Iowa’s history, and was a First-Team All-Big Ten last season. While technically not on the list of Free Agents, I think he could create fits for opposing teams’ secondaries.
Kellen Winslow II - (Pictured above) Kellen is a freak athlete to say the least at the tight end position. He also has a Hall of Fame pedigree with his father enshrined in Canton, Ohio. He has been controversial since day one with the Cleveland Browns for his lava hot temper and diva attitude. He has had over 43 catches in the last six seasons.
I don’t know if any of these free agents would come to the Bills, but it couldn’t hurt to put out some feelers. If you have other names to consider, please don’t hesitate to comment; I welcome and encourage a positive discussion.
