Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick paid his first visit to PFT Live today.  After talking about the team’s decision to trade veteran receiver Lee Evans, Fitzpatrick identified some of the guys who’ll fill the void.

Fitzpatrick says that the name to watch is Donald Jones, who joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2010.  Fitzpatrick said Jones will have a “great year” in his second NFL season.  Jones appeared in 15 games with five starts as a rookie.

The first-year full-time starter also has high expectations for newcomer Brad Smith, who was signed from the Bills away from the Jets.

The full Fitzpatrick interview is available at the PFT Live home page.  Or you can download the audio of the show on iTunes.

    I expect a Trend Edwards style regression from Fitzpatrick this year.

    With 6 kick returners on the team, the Bills will, without doubt, have the best “hands” return team in the NFL.

    They will need it, considering they will see plenty of kickoffs because of other teams scoring.

    They’re a couple names that don’t really jump out at you. but don’t sleep on Smith and Jones.

    It’s pretty bad when you have to hype a starting undrafted free agent. The Toronto Bills are sounding a little more better every passing minute.

    Although having $26 million in cap space, the Bills feel their roster is filled with enough talent.

    I think/hope the bills will surprise this year. I can’t stand the Pats(who havent won a SB since they stopped CHEATING), Jets(well its the jets), or the fins(owned by J.Lo, Fergie, Gloria Estefan?!?!?)

    “A little more better” come on feldman.

    Btw, dont sleep on our Defense. Merriman, Kyle Williams and DROY Marcell Dareus are gonna make some noise!

    this time of the year lucy is holding the ball, waiting for the buffalo charlie browns to come running at it. the start of the regular season is where lucy inevitably pulls the ball away. ladies and gentlemen thats what it feels like to be a bills fan

    It seems like an odd time for the Bills to invest in a guy like Smith.

    While his returns are indeed something to be feared, this season with the kickoffs pushed up 5 yards and more touch backs expected – as many as 50% of all kickoffs by some estimates – there’s going to be much less of an opportunity for the Bills to utilize him

    Maybe favre should move to buffalo… that will be the only way they win more than 3 games this year
