I have it on good word the Buffalo Bills are interested in trading for disgruntled Kansas City Chiefs guard Brian Waters.

The Bills, in the market for a new left guard after releasing Derrick Dockery on Thursday, could be looking to land the four-time pro bowler for a deal similar to the Marcus Stroud trade last year, when they gave up third and fifth round draft picks.

Waters has become disenchanted with the additions to the Chiefs organization. According to Kansas City Star writer Jason Whitlock, Waters asked for his release after new general manager Scott Pioli said he had no interest in meeting him. Whitlock said that Waters was “offended and shocked.”

Also according to the report, several Arizona Cardinals, including Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald, gave new head coach Todd Haley less than glowing reviews. Haley was called “condescending and ignored by veterans.”

While Waters is 32 years of age and the Chiefs offensive line struggled mightily, there is little doubt about his ability to perform. He would be an instant upgrade over Dockery and could give Buffalo one of the finer left sides of the offensive line in the NFL alongside Jason Peters.

The Bills would likely have to give Waters a new deal. He’s in the fourth year of a six year, $26.5 million deal and has made no bones about declaring himself underpaid.



While an interest in a Waters trade hasn’t been made public, a source inside the organization tells me the Bills are “very much interested in him.”



Pioli refused to honor his request to be released and weren’t open to trading him. But that could change after the Chiefs lost a second round pick in acquiring Matt Cassel from the New England Patriots. By trading the displeased Waters, the club could recoup draft picks as well as not have their new franchise quarterback hampered with an offensive line that includes an exceedingly unhappy left guard.

Thanks. The only problem is that story was from early March. Supposedly, there's an update to the story as of today. I guess we'll find out soon enough. I won't hold my breath as the source appears to carry little weight (based on the responses around here). Thanks again.
