Report: Bills the favorite to land Kyle Juszczyk

There’s been a market for Ravens fullback Kyle Juszczyk but the Bills have emerged as the leader to sign Juszczyk later this week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.

Prior reports had linked to Juszczyk to the Browns, and that was no surprise. Juszczyk went to high school about 30 miles outside of Cleveland before going on to play at Harvard, and the Browns’ front office is full of Ivy Leaguers — and Harvard alums specifically.

The Browns have seen Juszczyk up close during his time with the Ravens, and he was good enough to make the Pro Bowl last season. Juszczyk, 25, only had five rushing attempts last year, but he caught 37 passes and played plenty of snaps for the Ravens. He’s never missed a game in his four-year career and has scored six career touchdowns.

  1. As a close friend of the Bills organization I can confirm that this is true. Also what isn’t being reported is that Buffalo is the favorite to land Jimmy G from New England. They’ve done a nice job of keeping it quiet. The trade will be done within a week

    I find it very hard to believe Bill would trade Jimmy to a division rival..

  3. Some versatility in the running game, I liked Felton though. I like where this is going. A more traditional offensive approach, but that also points to Tyrod not returning. However, from what I’ve seen from Juz is great blocking and some solid running skills. This can open up a playbook in terms of setting/motioning Shady out of the backfield for 3-wide sets. I swear, I think most offensive coordinators outhink themselves by getting over creative. It’s all about personnel, and a lot less to do with creativity.

    Did you forget about Drew Bledsoe being traded to division rival Buffalo? Bill likes to know what he is up against… and he knows every weakness of his current backup and how to exploit them.
    Not as far fetched as one may think.

    Really? If Bill knows that Jimmy G isnt going to be a quality starter on a full time basis based on practice and film room observations, do you not think he would take full advantage of that and dump him on a division rival and net some high draft picks for it? That seems like exactly the thing Bill would do.

    But beyond that point, its BS anyway. The Bills A) Dont have the ammo to pull it off. B) Would need to trade their own QB first and C) Appear to be holding onto said QB since they are allegedly turning down trade offers

    Not to mention that he does not fit Doug Whaley’s QB requirements…..

  7. Hard to believe Bill would trade Jimmy G to. Division rival? Really? You’re telling me Billy B doesn’t want to snatch a 1st round pick from the enemy for a guy that’s unproven and knows he won’t have success with said team? He’s probably drooling over the prospect of that happening

  8. “As a Bills fan, no way Im getting excited over a fullback”

    While I agree with you, look at it this way – Juszczyk played in 16 games 4 straight years for the Ravens. I look at this as the exact opposite of whatever Doug Whaley was thinking when he talked Percy Harvin out of retirement and ended up paying him $1.7 million to play in 2 games (2 catcher for a total of 6 yards) before his migraines came back and he was done for the year.
