Is a Marshawn Lynch trade looming?
On the latest edition of "Cold Hard Facts," anchor Jay Harris asks NFL insider Adam Schefter to name three players who could be traded soon.
"No. 1, the Buffalo Bills running back, Marshawn Lynch," Schefter replies. "They have a new coach, a new GM and any time there are new people in charge, they bring in their own players. Marshawn Lynch could be traded on or before the draft."
A recent Buffalo News story claims Lynch wants out of Buffalo. A recent Olean Times Herald column says the Bills would like to move him. But Lynch has no leverage, and the Bills probably couldn't get enough in return for him to make it worth their while from a personnel standpoint.
The other two players Schefter names in response to Hill's question could end up in the AFC East: Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall and Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell.
All four AFC East teams have concerns at receiver, although New York Daily News writer Rich Cimini recently reported the New York Jets are uninterested in Marshall.
The Bills have an unsettled quarterback situation, and Campbell could be better than the trio (Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brian Brohm) on their roster.
