Bills On The Verge Of Trading Moulds
Losman On Block? Rumors have persisted for about a week now that the Bills are shopping J.P. Losman in a trade. Today's Buffalo News reports that two scouts say they have heard that the Bills are interested in shipping Losman. This would be a surprising move since the team would take a $3.6 Million cap hit. Granted they have the space but they wouldn't get anything in return near the number one pick they used on him two years ago. Not to mention all it cost them to move up to get him. Why would you give up on a player that has started a grand total of eight games in his career? They can trade him for a song and it could be the best deal another team makes if he blossoms.

Moulds Agrees With Texans: ESPN reports that Eric Moulds has come to an agreement on a four year, $14 Million contract to join the Texans. It includes a $5 million signing bonus. For the deal to become official the Texans need to come to an agreement with the Bills. They want to give the Bills a fifth round pick and the Bills reportedly want a fourth round pick. That would be the first pick on day two of the draft. Moulds is expected in Texas on Monday to meet with Texans officials.

Adams Heads To Cincy: Sam Adams has landed with an old friend in Cincinnati. He joins his former Ravens' defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis with the Bengals. He has reached an agreement on a three year deal worth $3 Million this year. That number could go up another $1 Million if he reaches certain incentives. He has yet to sign the contract.
Moulds Situation Cloudy: Despite Houston media reports that Eric Moulds has agreed to a multi-year contract with the Texans, there has been no official confirmation of the deal. In fact, both Moulds and the Bills deny the reports. Even if Moulds has agreed to a contract, the Bills would still need to agree to the compensation involved. It is believed the Bills are asking for a fourth round draft pick and Houston is offering a fith round selection. Other media reports say that the Philadelphia Eagles are still interested in acquiring Moulds, but Philadelphia media reports quote a league source as saying that the Eagles have had no trade discussions about Moulds. The situation remains very cloudy and it is doubtful there will be any resolution until next week.

Moulds Reportedly Traded to Houston: Radio reports out of Houston say that the Texans have agreed to a deal that brings them Eric Moulds. Despite the report, both the Bills and Moulds' agent deny that a deal has been reached. There is a possibility that the Philadelphia Eagles remain in the hunt for Moulds' services. Moulds had declared his playing days in Buffalo over and the Bills allowed him to seek a trade. It is believed that the team required at least a 4th round pick as compensation. If Moulds ends up going to Houston he may ultimately be paid less than what he was due to make in Buffalo this season and playing for the Texans does not afford him an opportunity to play for a legitimate contender - Houston finished with the worst record in the NFL last season. Stay tuned to Bills Daily for further details as they become available.

He looks forward to playing for new DL coach Bill Kollar and hopes to push for a starting job this season.
Jackson Shines: Another week is over in NFL Europe and Bills allocated RB Frederick Jackson had another solid performance. He had 199 all purpose yards. He ran for 63 yards on 16 carries and caught 4 passes for 56 yards in his team's 22-0 win. QB Craig Ochs got his first playing time of the season and performed well. He completed 12 of 15 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. He had an impressive QB rating of 123.6. The other QB in Europe, Tory Woodbury did not play the position but he did see action on special teams. he downed a punt deep in the opponents territory. S Rob Lee added one tackle in his team's 31-14 win.
Texans, Eagles Interested In Moulds: It appears the frontrunners to get Eric Moulds are Houston and Philadelphia. Denver and New England have also been named as possible destinations for the Bills wide receiver. Moulds' adviser says that there is interest on both sides for a deal to get done. The Texans would have to work out a new contract with Moulds and then make a trade with the Bills. A league official told a Texas newspaper that the Bills are reportedly asking for a 4th round pick in return for Moulds. Moulds supposedly has a wish list of five teams he wants to play for and the Eagles top his list. That list does not include Houston. Besides Philadelphia, Eric reportedly wants to play for Denver, New England, Seattle, or Kansas City. The Chiefs have not heard from the Bills about Moulds but the Eagles acknowledge having some interest in acquiring his services. If a deal can't be worked out with any team the Bills are likely to release him. One GM agreed with the Bills that his numbers are out of whack and he won't receive anything like that from the open market unless a losing team like the Texans ante up that much money. He may be willing to take less to play for a contender.
Edwards To Chiefs: The Bills have lost another of their unrestricted free agents. Ron Edwards has agreed to terms to join the Kansas City Chiefs. Herm Edwards knows Ron Edwards well from coaching against him with the Jets and called it a great signing.
