Bills GM Buddy Nix who spoke at the airport just before the team departed for Chicago for the preseason opener didn’t want to comment specifically on the market for Lee in the wake of trading Evans to Baltimore, but didn’t deny there was respectable interest.
“There was a lot of interest in Lee and you can understand why,” said Nix. “He’s been a good player and done a lot of good things here. He’ll add to Baltimore. I think it’s a good opportunity for him. They’ve got one receiver and he’ll probably move right in and they’ve got a good team. Ozzie Newsome and I go back years and Cam Cameron and I worked together so I think it’s a great opportunity for Lee also.”
Nix also said that with the depth at Buffalo’s receiver position, had they not made a move come roster cutdown time they’d have to cut a player without getting anything in return.
