Bills add Keith Rivers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (3/12/14) Free agent linebacker Keith Rivers won't have to move far to get to his new home, as the former Giant signed a two-year contract with the Bills Wednesday, according to The Buffalo News. The deal will pay Rivers $5 million over two years, with half of the money guaranteed.

Jairus Byrd could stay in Buffalo, look at Cleveland
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (2/21/14) Bills safety Jairus Byrd is a free agent this offseason, and he has two scenarios he could explore for his next team.
The first, according to the Buffalo News, is returning to the Bills, possibly under the franchise tag for the second consecutive year. That's something Bills general manager Doug Whaley is mulling over.
"In that situation, you're going to use every option open," Whaley said. "We don't want to put ourselves in a corner, and I don't want to say to you guys, 'We're going to do this,' and then something changes and we don't something different. Then you guys look at me different when you ask me a question. We as an organization, again, we're going to leave every option open for Jairus because we would like him back."
Byrd's tag for this year would be $8.299 million. Many analysts believe that's too much money for a safety.
The other scenario for Byrd is signing in Cleveland and being reunited with former defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who is now the Browns head coach. NFL Network reports there be a possible reunion if Byrd is set free.
