  • Marshawn Lynch

    Hey guys, I was just thinking that Buffalo has a stable of RB's and probably would be willing to trade Lynch. With Sjax's back surgery I feel like Lynch would be a great addition to our team. I also don't think it would cost much since the most that a team has gotten for a RB in a while has been a 5th. What do you guys think?

    From a couple of weeks ago:

    Buffalo GM Buddy Nix: Bills have no plans to trade RB Marshawn Lynch

    Bills GM Buddy Nix said Wednesday that the team has no plans to trade former Pro Bowl RB Marshawn Lynch.
    "Our intention is for Marshawn to be here," Nix told reporters, via the Buffalo News. "He's under contract. We think he's a good back. We need two backs. Our intentions are for him to be here. All this trade talk, it's not coming from us."
    Lynch has been mentioned in trade rumors and has not been participating in the team's offseason workout program.
    After serving a suspension at the start of last season, Lynch lost his starting job to Fred Jackson and rushed for just 450 yards. He made the Pro Bowl in 2008.
    Nix said the Bills would like Lynch to participate in the voluntary offseason program, and was asked if Lynch requested a trade.
    "Look guys," Nix told reporters. "He don't make that decision. He's under contract to us. We're going to do what's best for the Bills. We need Marshawn, and we expect him to show up when it's mandatory." -- Sean Leahy

          Ah I didn't see that quote before. I still find it hard that they want to keep Lynch after drafting spiller and FJax's season last year. Hopefully we can find a suitable backup for SJax.

            When the SB was in AZ a few years back, some cats i know went with Glazer to a SB party out here, where a ton of NFL players were at. They said Marshawn Lynch is the biggest Douche on the planet, he was all drunk trying to start fights. He even called the homie out who is currently signed with the UFC. When he declined Lynch got in his boxing stance and started shadow boxing to taunt my friend. After hearing this I would hate to have this douche nozzle wearing the horns. Go DArby!!!!!!!!

              The only backup that seems plausible is Westbrook. Packers weren't willing to deal with him. At this point it's Rams or bust for him. He essentially came in for a physical and passed. Usually in a situation like this it would come down to dollars and cents, not to mention whether he would play for a team. No contract was negotiated so either he doesn't want to play for the Rams, who are not contenders, or waiting until training camp. He is a veteran and usually players in his position would sit out as much as they can to get healthy.

              And so in my final analysis and correct me if I'm wrong, Westbrook is still possible and makes the most sense.

                  I would pass on Lynch, no doubt, and I don't think he is the kind of guy Spag's wants to bring in.

                  Billy D is big on intangibles, and Lynch has bad ones.

                    Lynch has tons of potential. But unless they let him out of prison for games there is too much risk. I think he will be a Pacman type guy in trouble his whole career.

                      I don't see Buffalo parting with Lynch anyway. With a new coaching staff in place, and Fred Jackson pushing 30, I think they are going to give Lynch a clean slate and hope that he and Spiller can form a dominating 1-2 punch for years to come.

                        Even if Buffalo wanted him out, which I think they might by trade deadline...2 words: No Thanks

                        - We already have a power smashmouth back in Jackson. We need a breaking tackles, agility, speed, 3rd down back as a backup.
                        - With the kind of production and the baggage he carries, he is just not worth it for us period.

                          Bills Are Stacked at Running Back
                          by a.p.quinn
                          Just saying I'm sooooo jealous of there situation. One of them has got to go though. Personally I loved Joique Bell comin outta Wayne State this year but they'll most likely keep him. Marshawn Lynch is the odd man out there. I think they'll be forced to cut him if there aren't any trade offers.

                          Other teams around the league have some pretty good backs who may be available too, the Falcons included (Jerious Norwood). The Rams'll pounce on who ever the best man for the team is.

                          Go Rams!!!

                          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.

                          Bills' McGahee wants trade if he's not starting
                          by DJRamFan
                          Aug. 20, 2004
                 wire reports

                          ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Running back Willis McGahee has asked the Buffalo Bills to trade him if he is not their starter on opening day, a source told The Associated Press on Friday.

                          McGahee's request was not issued as an ultimatum, but the player made clear he won't be happy playing backup to incumbent Travis Henry, said the source, who is close to McGahee, and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

                          Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said, "There is no truth to that whatsoever."

                          McGahee was not available for comment, as the Bills were off Friday in preparation for Saturday's preseason game against Tennessee. McGahee's agent Drew Rosenhaus declined comment.

                          After hosting Tennessee, the Bills close their preseason with two road games in preparation for their season-opener against Jacksonville on Sept. 12.

                          Questions about how the two running backs can work together have been raised since the Bills selected McGahee 23rd overall in the 2003 draft.

                          Henry is now coming off his second consecutive 1,000-yard season while McGahee missed his entire rookie season recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left knee.

                          The former Miami star was considered a top-three pick before he was hurt in his final college game, the Hurricanes' loss to Ohio State in the national championship, the 2003 Fiesta Bowl.

                          Rookie coach Mike Mularkey has said that both players can work together this season, but has maintained that Henry is his starter.

                          That's been evident through camp, where Henry has worked exclusively with the starting unit, while McGahee has worked mostly with the second string.

                          McGahee has looked good so far.

                          In his preseason debut, he had 13 carries for 58 yards, a 9-yard reception, and scored the go-ahead touchdown from the 1, in Buffalo's 16-6 win over Denver last Sunday. McGahee also shone, scoring four touchdowns from within 2 yards, during a controlled scrimmage against Cleveland earlier this month.

                          While Henry and McGahee refer to themselves friends, theirs has been an uneasy relationship.

                          Henry initially called the Bills decision to draft McGahee as a slap in the face.

                          He's since backed off that claim, saying the two can work together.

                          Henry, however, has previously said that he's not prepared to be a backup to McGahee. Henry has also said that he expects one of them to be traded after the end of this season.

                          Henry is signed through the 2005 season. McGahee has four years left on a contract that could potentially be worth $15.53 million if he meets all the incentives.

                          Somebody a lot of us wanted to sign this off-season. He has a contract, not to big for his abilities. Should we try to trade for him?

                          Darwin Walker in Limbo
                          by itsguud
                          I was just watching the NFLN and they were talking about how Walker is now gonna go back to the Eagles, who don't want him. Therefore he will be a free-agent soon enough. He is definitly overpriced but perhaps after some time to cool down on the FA list then he might bring his price down... then perhaps he could be the Vet. the Rams need??
