More news from One Bills Drive to begin tonight’s show. Charles Clay has officially signed his offer sheet from the team and the Dolphins will not match that offer, confirming the next weapon added to the Bills offense. We asked the listeners to weigh in on the Clay move and also pitched for their thoughts on the possible rule changes that could come up for discussion at next week’s NFL Owners Meetings. There was plenty of reaction on that topic, specifically on what should be in play for video replay.

Yesterday, the move for wide receiver Percy Harvin was announced. Bills wide receiver coach Sanjay Lal sat down in studio to talk about Harvin. The two were both in New York last season and Lal discussed their relationship. He said the versatile wide receiver is one of the “most competitive guys” he’s been around. He talked about Harvin’s competitive nature.

Lal went on to say that Harvin has all the tools to be a polished outside receiver. He also went down the list of other guys on the roster including Sammy Watkins, saying the sky is the limit for the second year wide-out and that no limits will be placed on him.

As free agency begins to wind down, we reached out to Steve Palazzolo from Pro Football Focus. He recently had a post on the site recapping and grading the free agent moves in the AFC East. Palazzolo was impressed by the moves by all the teams in the division, including the Bills, who he says have surrounded their quarterback with plenty of offensive weapons.

Finally, Ben Austro from FootballZebras.com joined the show to discuss the possible rule changes up for debate at next week’s Owners Meetings. He mentioned the possibility of what could be done with video replay and also touched on the hot topic of the catch/no-catch scenarios.
