    Bills Making Calls About Trade to No. 1 or No. 2

    Bills making calls about a trade to No. 1 or No. 2

    Posted by Mike Florio on May 7, 2014, 1:13 PM EDT

    As the draft approaches, plenty of teams supposedly want to trade down. And plenty of teams supposedly want to trade up.

    The Bills, were told, have been burning up the phone lines in an effort to work out a deal that would vault them from No. 9 to No. 1 or No. 2. The targets are believed to be defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and tackle Greg Robinson.

    Its unclear what it would take to get a deal done. With both the Texans and Rams hoping to slide down, the Bills could spark a bidding war for a bargain. Regardless of the cost, it appears that G.M. Doug Whaley, who could have a new boss by the end of the year, hopes to make the team dramatically better, quickly.

    Now why would the Bills tell anyone what they're up to?

    Perhaps their phone lines are tapped?

    Well, just to play devils advocate, it's possible the "sources" are coming from other teams (e.g. the Rams and Texans) in an effort to stir up interest from the teams who they might have more interest in trading with than the Bills. It is only advantageous for the Rams if there are "leaks" about multiple teams interested in moving up.

    Regardless, I don't think the Rams will or should move down to #9 unless they get an RGIII-type return. It's just not worth it to pass on those top 6 players.

    If they didn't no one would care. Sorry Buffalo.

    Obviously the NSA officials are holding a draft party.

    If that's the case then the source is the New England Patriots!

    The odd thing is that they've been calling me. Not sure why they think I am in a position to negotiate a trade for the Rams, but I offered them the No. 2 pick for their first, second, third and 2015 first round picks. I'll let you all know if they call back.

    Of course they're tapped, but the 'tappers' don't care what the Bills do regarding football! :-)

    But that film will be burned by the NFL after they determine there was nothing indicating wrong doing in them.
