After trading out of the top 10 in last year’s NFL draft, the Buffalo Bills might be looking to move up this year.

At least that’s what longtime NFL reporter Dan Pompei is hearing. In this week’s “Read Option” column for Bleacher Report, Pompei wrote that the Houston Texans are “trying hard to deal the first pick in the draft,” and that “they might have a trade partner in the Bills, who appear interested in moving up.”

The Buffalo Bills continued to bulk up their defensive front seven Friday by signing former New England Patriots middle linebacker Brandon Spikes. The deal, which was first reported by This Given Sunday’s Chris Trapasso Friday afternoon and confirmed by the team early Saturday morning, is a one-year deal worth $3.25 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Buffalo Bills haven’t added any new talent through the first seven hours of free agency, but they’ve already lost their marquee free agent from their 2013 roster. Jairus Byrd, a three-time Pro Bowl free safety who the Bills opted against franchise tagging for a second consecutive year, has been signed to a six-year contract by the New Orleans Saints.

According to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Byrd’s contract is worth $54 million total with $28 million guaranteed. While the year-to-year structure of the deal remained unreported as of midnight Wednesday, his total contract value, guaranteed money and per-year salary all rank highest among all NFL safeties (and as such, are all-time records for the position), according to Spotrac. His signing bonus is reportedly $11 million, according to Tim Graham of The Buffalo News, which would be the second-highest among NFL safeties, per Spotrac.
