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.
