ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Buffalo Bills have contacted and are in the process of arranging a meeting with, former Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan, according to two NFL sources. Shanahan is said to be willing to listen to the Bills and has said in the past that he is determined to return to the NFL next season. But there are other candidates at or near the top of the Bills wish list. For now, the Bills have appointed their former defensive coordinator Perry Fewell as their interim head coach.
