More positive grades for Bills

The Bills offseason has been one of the more popular among the national scribes in the media. Here’s yet another positive review of Buffalo’s eye-opening offseason.

The Sporting News’ Vinny Iyer gave the Bills an ‘A’ grade for their offseason moves, one of only three teams to grade that high.

Buffalo Bills
Key additions: DE Mario Williams, DE Mark Anderson, CB Stephon Gilmore, QB Vince Young.

Key losses: OT Demetrius Bell, WR Roscoe Parrish.

Where the Bills fall short on quantity they make up for in quality. With the switching back to a 4-3 defense under Dave Wannstedt, it was imperative for them to add bookend pass rushers. Williams won’t disappoint as the most coveted defensive player on the market, and Anderson brings his fine complementary pass-rush skills from the Patriots. The pressure they’ll provide up front should help rookie Gilmore settle in well at cornerback.

New England and Denver were the only other clubs to earn ‘A’ grades.
