The speed with which this went down tells me two things: 1) The Bills wanted to get this over with before they had a chance to talk themselves out of it, and; 2) Drew Rosenhaus knew good and well no other team was going to make a pitch. Trust me – if Drew had thought there was even a small chance of New England, the Giants or even the Vikings taking a shot at Terrell, he would’ve waited, if for no other reason than to drive the price up.
The downside for T.O. is that Buffalo is essentially an NFL backwater. They have no shot at contending in that division, and basically no one cares what happens with them. They don’t even have Tim Russert to stick up for them anymore. Yeah, T.O. has a job for 2009, but he has been rendered more-or-less irrelevant. Which won’t stop him from being a pain in the ass, I’m sure.
