08:07 AM ET 02.21 | The Bills aren't above taking a shot on an injury risk/reward player for their defense, and they may be willing to add Bob Sanders. There is some interest on the part of the Bills. Buffalo has a player in safety Jarius Byrd who will go after the football, but they need another impact player at the position. Donte Whitner was never the playmaker Buffalo envisioned when they made him a first round pick, and with his contract up, the Bills could look at Sanders to possibly slide into the secondary in 2011. The question for defensive coordinator George Edwards would be where to play him: at free or strong.

Buffalo, where careers go to die, just ask TO and Merriman.

I'm sorry to see Bob Sanders go, but he was on IR more games than he played. Best of luck to you, #21.

At some point Stu, they had to let him go for the very reason you mentioned.

Great player, when he's healthy. But I don't think the Bills would be the best fit for someone who is injury prone. That would be like adding insult to, well, injury.

NIcely done!

...but they need another impact player at the position...

And what position do the Bills NOT need another impact player at?

From the penthouse to the sheethouse.

They have more leaks to plug than the Titanic.

TO had a mild resurgence in Cincy, so he will likely get some interest from some team ... but once Merriman got off the PED's he seemed to not be the same player...

And speaking of leaks, I thought FN had solved the spam problem.

That is true.

There will probably be a sizeable market for Sanders.

I always though Oakland was where careers went to die:

Warren Sapp
Rod Woodson
Bill Romanowski
Dana Stubblefield
Sean Gilbert
Richard Seymour

Once the Drew Rosenhaus spin machine gets into high gear, there will be multiple teams interested in TO. Just ask Rosenhaus, and he'll tell you.

Don't forget JaMarcus Russell. He'd at least deserve an honorary mention on that list.

I thought the FN interns survived on bread, water and Ramen noodles. Apparently they need spam to make it through the day, too.

No Doubt!!

TO had nice stats when he played. The team won when he didn't play. Hmmmm?

Seymour just got a nice deal from Oakland and Romanowski played in a Super Bowl there if I'm not mistaken. Sapp had 10 sacks his first season there. You're mostly right though.
