  • Jeff Tuel QB-BUF

      Matt Cassel (foot) has been traded to the Bills from the Vikings. The teams have also exchanged undisclosed draft choices as part of the deal, which will become official next week. EJ Manuel, Cassel, and Tuel are currently the team's three quarterbacks ahead of free agency.

      Analysis: The team might even bring in one more quarterback, as new coach Rex Ryan seems intent on stirring up as much competition as possible for the most important position on the field. Note that Tuel has no background with the new staff, so at best he seems like the No. 3 guy once next season rolls around, and he might even be looking for a new employer before all is said and done.

      Matt Cassel (foot) has been traded to the Bills from the Vikings. The teams have also exchanged undisclosed draft choices as part of the deal, which will become official next week. Cassel, Manuel, and Jeff Tuel are currently the team's three quarterbacks ahead of free agency.

      Analysis: The Bills could still bring in one more guy to create an all-out competition, as this is a new coaching regime not married to Manuel. That said, Cassel isn't exactly in the same caliber of Jay Cutler or someone with more of a resume, so Manuel might still be considered the top guy once camp rolls around. And there's some promise as Manuel picks up more experience and has a good QB coach in David Lee. Still, it doesn't sound like new coach Rex Ryan is simply going to hand Manuel the job, and this could end up being a pretty fierce competition all summer.

      Cassel (foot) has been traded to the Bills from the Vikings. The teams have also exchanged undisclosed draft choices as part of the deal,(reportedly, the Vikings are getting the first of Buffalo's 2015 fifth-rounders as well as a 2016 seventh-round pick, while the Bills get Minnesota's 2015 sixth-rounder), which will become official next week.

      Analysis: Well, if there's one team that's making headlines ahead of free agency it's been the Bills, who made a big splash Tuesday with a trade for LeSean McCoy. The Bills lost out on Josh McCown, so apparently they'll go with Cassel (and maybe one other still undetermined guy) to create some competition with an unproven EJ Manuel in camp this summer. Cassel, who missed most of last season with a broken foot after winning the starting job for the Vikings, heads to his fourth NFL team.

      Johnson's agent Kennard McGuire relayed Wednesday that he has asked the Texans to release the veteran wideout, ESPN.com reports.

      Analysis: The report notes that the Texans had given Johnson -- whose role with the team was slated to diminish -- permission to seek a trade, but such a scenario doesn't seem likely, given the wideout's hefty contract. In any case, at this stage, it appears as though the 33-year-old Johnson -- who caught 85 passes for 936 yards and three TDs in 15 games last season -- will be catching passes for a new team in 2015.

    • Spiller, about to become a free...

      Spiller, about to become a free agent, appeared on the NFL Network on Tuesday and said he won't be returning to Buffalo. He also said the Bills called him and thanked him for his service following the LeSean McCoy trade, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

      Analysis: The Bills traded for McCoy on Tuesday afternoon and paid a high price to do so, both in terms of salary and in giving up Kiko Alonso. Spiller already seemed like he was ready to look elsewhere anyway, but given how much he'd cost to bring back into the mix, there's no way the Bills are spending that kind of additional money at the running back position.
