Bills bring in Tannehill

Another day, another team in the top half of round one shows interest in quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

With the Browns at No. 4 and the Dolphins at No. 8 and the Chiefs at No. 11 and the Seahawks at No. 12 and the Eagles at No. 15 interested (supposedly) in Tannehill, the Bills at No. 10 are now in the mix.

Peter King of SI.com reports via Twitter that Tannehill has wrapped up a workout and a visit with the Chiefs, that the Browns will be next, and then the Bills.

The Bills’ interest is, on the surface, confusing.  Last season, Buffalo gave a long-term contract to starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, and they landed on the hook for another $5 million on the seventh day of the 2012 league year.

Still, the Bills could roll the dice on Tannehill, given that Fitzpatrick’s contract is essentially a year-to-year proposition.

Or maybe the Bills are simply hoping that the Chiefs, Seahawks, Eagles, and anyone else picking after No. 10 who wants Tannehill will feel compelled to move to No. 9 or higher, taking Tannehill and pushing down the board one of the players whom the Bills actually want.
