    With a glut of wide receivers and a 2008 first-round defensive back (Leodis McKelvin) who can return kicks on the roster, the Buffalo Bills are testing the waters for interest in Roscoe Parrish. According to a league source, the Bills are shopping Parrish, primarily as an exploratory measure. Parrish was a second-round pick in the 2005 draft, and he has appeared in 55 of a possible 64 career games.

    I hope we don't get rid of him. He's a threat to go the distance every time he touches the ball, granted it's mostly on SP teams. I don't like the idea of our 2 starting corners returning kicks fulltime

    Why's that? Just because you've never heard of him doesn't mean Parrish didn't lead the league in punt return average. :rolleyes:

    Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand gernades. :pimp2:

    Most teams don't have 1 legit returner. To have 3 is just rediculous. Because the other 2 are the starting CBs it makes sense to try and get something for Parrish as his time at WR will become next to nonexistant, probably the #4 or #5 WR.

    I was being more sarcastic than anything. THe Steelers kickoff return is horrendous and when Holmes isn't in there, the punt return isn't much better. I think they are finally realizing it...

    I don't know what the Bills think they'll get for Parrish, but I can't see it being a lot...

    Without a good return game you will never win the Super Bowl. Holmes is good.

    The Bills drafted Parrish in the 2nd, why take a 5' 7" WR in the 2nd is beyond me, but they'll prolly be lucky to get a 3rd ro 4th rounder in return.

    To be a top PR, dangerous slot guy (FYI Mike Thomas is my favorite WR in the draft. I think he is like 5'8.5)

    Parrish just never developed as a WR

    I would give up Bobby Carpenter straight up for Parrish, sounds like a fair deal

    He is about worthless to us in a blitz heavy 3-4 reliant on Conversion backers. He is more a 4-3 guy

    In the end the Bills would probably win out in this as carpenter could thrive full time as a 4-3 OLB, but I wouldnt be at all upset about getting the top PR in the NFL for a backup LB

    yes, i think they would be VERY lucky to get a 3rd or 4th for him but at this point they may take a 5th or 6th. how much money is he due to make this season?

    A 5th or 6th seems a bit low for an elite punt returner. As a WR he's only usefull for reverses or the dump pass at the line of scrimage so that should lower his value but still worth more than a 5 or 6.

    ok, well it looks like his contract doesn't look to be out of line so if the bills don't get a reasonable offer for him, he wouldn't be too much of a burden to keep around. he'll probably just end up staying with the bills.
