According to a YahooSports report the Bills were one of two teams that inquired about the availability of Donovan McNabb.
The report names the Bills and Raiders as two teams that asked about McNabb in discussions with the Eagles. The report also indicates that McNabb would prefer to go to a contending team, and that teams that are interested would expect McNabb to sign a long term deal before acquiring him, something McNabb reportedly would be reluctant to do with the Bills and Raiders.
That would obviously present a major snag to any kind of trade negotiations knowing McNabb has just one year left on his current contract, which includes a $6.2M bonus due in May.
Bills head coach Chan Gailey was quoted by YahooSports as saying the following concerning the possibility of a trade for a QB.
“I don’t know, maybe,” Gailey said. “That hasn’t come up, but could we? Yeah. … We’re not looking at anything right now that is set in concrete. Because when you don’t have a proven starter, you’re open to every scenario.”
