Whirlwind Monday Dominates Bills News

Posted on September 21, 2009 by Patrick Moran
The Buffalo Bills made a lot of noise on the field on Sunday. Unfortunately, news in the wake of the game has been hard to digest. First came a report that Donte Whitner’s house was robbed Sunday. According to  Bills AP writer John Wawrow, Whitner discovered about $400,000 worth of jewelry missing following Sunday’s win against Tampa Bay.

As Wawrow accurately states, the theft was reported just one week after teammate Leodis McKelvin’s front lawn in the Hamburg same suburb was vandalized by two teenagers following Buffalo’s season-opening loss to New England.

Then came word, as first broke by our own Brian Galliford that offensive tackle Brad Butler will miss the rest of the season with a right knee injury.

Butler injured the knee in the second quarter of yesterday’s game against Tampa Bay. He was pass blocking when defensive end Stylez White lost his balance and rolled into the back of his right leg.

Sadly, Paul Hamilton from WGR-550 reported that former Bills running back Booker Moore has died of an apparent heart attack.  Moore was 50-years old.

Lastly (for now), Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk filed a report saying Roscoe Parrish is once again on the trading block  and could be dealt before the end of the week.

He lists Washington, Kansas City and Jacksonville as potential suitors.

While the Bills are unlikely to get anything more than a late round draft pick for Parrish at this stage, they could Bills could be freeing up some of Parrish’s $2.7 million salary to sign an offensive tackle. Perhaps, Jon Runyan, whom as we reported has remained in the Bills mix before the Butler injury.

While the Bills are hardly in cap trouble, freeing up money immediately before or after spending it is common for Ralph Wilson.

He's (Brad Butler) here all offseason putting in his work and for him to go down in Week 2, you kind of struggle to find the words to talk to him. It's a frustrating thing to go through, you can't really say anything to make him feel better."
