We hear it all the time from General Managers, Coaches, and reporters of the National Football League: Football is a war of attrition. With that said you can never have enough spare parts and reliable back up players on your team in case the unthinkable happens and one of your starting players in the form of suspension, injury or worse. The Buffalo Bills are no different and one thing Doug Whaley and his staff have been doing a great job is picking up discarded players from other teams, some having played for multiple teams and finding a place for them on the roster to add some much needed reliable organizational depth. One great example of this digging and signing by Whaley is new comer Landon Cohen. On the island of misfit toys that will be showcasing their talents at One Bills Drive, Cohen seems to have the biggest upside.

Every season we are seeing more and more young talented players, even some of them are viewed as the best of the best, elite, All-Pro or whatever adjective you would like to insert for their immense talent. This past year has been no different. We have watched players like Justin Blackmon, Aldon Smith, Josh Gordon, and many others but more importantly one of our own, Marcell Dareus come under some scrutiny for their off-season exploits. These very young but very talented football players have all but thrown away their careers or put them under a microscope going forward and the uncertainty of their future has both the fan base and the franchise questioning their long term commitment.
