Default Eagles trade DT Walker for Bills LB Spikes

The trade was first reported by ESPN.com.

Don't know if you know this or not, but the Eagles signed DT Montae Reagor from the Colts last week. Made Walker expendable.

I think this means Buffalo goes LB in the 1st....They let Fletcher go, then they trade away Spikes...Patrick Willis??...

i believe spikes pretty much demanded the trade, so whatever the bills got in return is good.

1st round is going to be tough for Buffalo.

They need RB and LB in a bad way. I wonder if they try for Bush and try to get their LB in the 1st.
If Lynch is there how do they not take him.

Let's see...so far the Bills have lost 2 starting LBs, their #1 CB, their starting RB, and if I'm not mistaken a starter on the OL. They've added some OL in FA, but that still seems to be creating more holes than it fills.

I think the Bills would have to trade up for Willis. I think the 49ers could easily take Willis at 11.

Word out on the streets from a few of my Buffalo fan friends is that Buffalo may indeed be a team that would like to swap picks with us to pick Marshawn Lynch or Peterson if he falls to us.

That trade makes sense to get Lynch...the problem is that Buffalo has a lot of holes to fill with this draft, and might not like to spend a 2nd rounder to address them.

If they don't get Lynch, what odds they draft Bush later and get LB or CB with their first pick?

I can't understand whats going on in Buffalo this offseaon.......It seems like everyone is on Marv Levy's hot seat. This season showed so much promise to the Bills and now they are blowing their whole rooster up. No more McGahee, Fletcher, Clements and now Spikes? To me it just makes no since.

Even Taeko Spikes said today on the Hotlist he didn't know what is going on in Buffalo other than Marv Levy wants a "youth movement" and that everything was fine between him and the front office before the trade.

Reminds me of the offseason the Texans had the year after they went 7-9. Sharper is released along with Glenn, stupid trades and signings are made and all of a sudden after a promising season you have a 2-14 team.
