Former Bills TEs reunited

Posted by Chris Brown on October 21, 2009 – 12:54 pm

Cleveland Browns TE Robert Royal was back in town for his team’s Week 5 matchup with the Bills two weeks ago. Now joining him on the Browns roster is a former Bills teammate of his that plays the same position.

Michael Gaines just signed with the Browns after most recently playing for Chicago. He also has played for Detroit since leaving the Bills via free agency after the 2007 season.

Anyone want to consider TE Gaines?

Former Bills TE Michael Gaines, was released by the Detroit Lions after making OK State TE Brandon Pettigrew one of their two first-round picks last weekend. Gaines is a decent blocker. You wonder if he’d be a consideration for Buffalo just as veteran insurance.

Royal signs for Gaines money

Posted by Chris Brown on March 5, 2009 – 2:54 pm

Former Bills TE Robert Royal will be yet another player that Buffalo will face in the 2009 season as the Bills will play against the Browns this fall.

Royal signed for four years and $10M according to’s Adam Caplan. That’s the exact same money that former Bills TE Michael Gaines signed for last year when he agreed to a free agent deal with Detroit last offseason. Cleveland had a TE need after trading away Kellen Winslow to Tampa.

Buffalo will also face Jabari Greer in 2009 after he signed with New Orleans.
