I know most of us are fairly confident in our WR corps, but Graham is a former 3rd round pick and played college ball in the state at NCSU. He's entering his 3rd season and for his career has 54 rec, 638 yards and 3 TDs. 4.41 40 and was the ACC career leader in kickoff return yards with 3,153. If he could be had for a late round pick, I think it would be well worth it.

Honestly, I'd like to see him brought on board, but he was never very special as a kick returner at State.  He was good for only about 1 return TD a year, and another couple long ones.  However, he does have the speed to take the top off a defense and the height to catch it over a defender if necessary.  But he lacks consistency and has for his whole career.  Maybe playing at home would be a good motivator for him, or maybe Proehl can iron out his consistency problems, but I just have a feeling it wouldn't work out.

I see him as being a replacement for Ted Ginn, who I still don't think we've actually replaced this year. I think the one thing we're lacking in our WR corps is a guy who can be a burner and take the top off a defense like Ginn did last year. Maybe that's Brown, but if we can send a 6th or 7th round pick to get Graham, I'd rather use him in that role as he's at least shown he has the pedigree for that. 

 

I think he's worth a late round flier if that's all the Bills are looking for, and maybe playing for his home team will give him an extra bit of motivation.

If we're looking for a guy, let's drop the "Ginn replacement" line, that didn't work so well with Underwood.

A WHOLE PIE!

if we're gonna trade, how about it be for something we need more...kind of like an OT?

we have very limited resources. focus on bigger priorities.

This.  If we swing a trade, I'd greatly prefer it be for an OT or a safety.

Is there anything to suggest he is available for trade?

Brown and King have the speed to take the top off of a defense.  Philly has kick/punt return experience.  They're both already on the roster, and wouldn't cost us anything extra to keep them.  There's no need to look for returners.  Only a few are really good anyway, and we can't afford them.

For people on mobile (this is in the OP):

 

Adam Caplan ‏@caplannfl
For example, the #Bills have had WR T.J. Graham on the trade block for several months, sources said.

I see the Bills cutting Graham. They have a loaded WR corp and I've been expecting it for a while.

 

If that happens scoop him up.

hmmm....I'm not mobile but I do see where it looks like something is missing in the first post. Looks like a grey outline but with nothing in it.

 

 

*Weird.....now it's there.

True. Wouldn't hurt to toss out a conditional 7th round pick to ensure we'd get him though (as he'd be subject to waivers if released).
