The AFC East was the most hotly contested division in football last season. Any one of three teams – the Patriots, Jets and Dolphins – had a chance to win the division on the final weekend. The only team which didn't got better Saturday, at least on paper.
The Bills, who have gone 7-9 each of the last three years and haven't made the playoffs since 1999, signed wide receiver Terrell Owens three days after the Cowboys released him. He makes Buffalo relevant and injects some excitement into a franchise that has used seven starting quarterbacks the last nine years.
The Bills have been too conservative on offense and need another weapon to compete in that division. With T.O. and Lee Evans, Trent Edwards now has two receivers who can stretch the field.
Despite his constant craving for attention, playing in a small market like Buffalo might be the best thing for Owens. He can be the biggest attraction on a team filled mostly with non-descript players. And playing on the East coast will get him national attention, especially when the Bills play the Jets and Patriots. He's probably also looking forward to playing the Dolphins because of Bill Parcells.
Getcha Buffalo wings ready!
