Bills COO/GM Russ Brandon confirmed for Buffalobills.com that the club would not be interested in adding Michael Vick to the roster.
“We do not have interest at this time,” said Brandon. “We are comfortable with our roster as it is.”
This stance should come as no surprise. The organization has been staunchly behind Trent Edwards believing he will take a big step forward in his third NFL season. Everyone on Buffalo’s roster is also fully behind Edwards, who is unquestionably ‘the guy.’ If you bring in a veteran like Vick, who has had success in the league, it could potentially undermine the commitment the organization has made to Edwards.
And that is not a situation the organization wants in such an important season, especially with a player that may or may not be available if you need him due to injury to your starting QB anyway.
