With about three weeks until the draft, this is not the time to believe everything that is said across the NFL.
But if Buffalo Bills owner Terry Pegula was being truthful — and not necessarily strategic — last week, the new nfl jerseys then the Bills might have a higher opinion of their current quarterback situation than most do.
“Without tipping our hand at what we’re going to do in the draft, we look at all positions,” Pegula said at the annual league meetings. “It could be a quarterback. But we’re not in as bad of shape as you might think we are at that position right now.”
The Bills’ trades last month of quarterback Tyrod Taylor, in exchange for a third-round pick, and left tackle Cordy Glenn, moving the Bills from No. 21 to No. 12 in the first round, added fuel to already-rampant speculation Buffalo was maneuvering to trade up further in the first round and acquire one of the draft’s top quarterbacks.
Yet within days, the New York Jets made an aggressive trade to move from No. 6 to No. 3, potentially boxing out their division rival from what appeared to be a prime draft slot for a team looking for a franchise quarterback.
In the wake of the Jets’ trade, Bills general manager Brandon Beane stressed at the league meetings — as he did at his combine and post-free agency news conferences — that it is far from certain he trades up for a quarterback.
That could be viewed as a negotiating tactic from Beane, who might not want to appear too desperate, or simply a way of managing fans’ expectations if he is unable to execute a trade up the board.
But Pegula’s comment the next day seemed to be more than a smokescreen. nfl football jerseys cheap His hint that the Bills are happier than most believe with only AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman on their roster at quarterback suggests Beane keeping his bounty of draft selections and going a different direction than quarterback at No. 12 overall is a real possibility.
