    Kroy still has something left. It would be a good move by the Bucs to sign him. I was disappointed that Buffalo released him. But that’s the Bills for ya.

    His wife really enjoyed her time in Buffalo. What a shame.

    Sign him if you want a guy who whiffs tackles while wearing red contact lenses. Scary.
