1. Frank Gore weighs in on his NFL future
Veteran running back Frank Gore came to Buffalo on a one-year contract. Now that the season has come to an end, the 15-year vet is not positive on his future holds.
"I don't know," Gore said. "I'm going to take some time off. My body still feels good and I felt like I showed people I can still play this game when I got opportunities. I'm going to take some time and think about it."
Gore says one thing that will play into his decision is his son who will start playing college football this fall.
"My son is going to be going to college," Gore said. "So, I'll sit down with him and go from there. I'm not in a rush to make a decision. I know I still can play this game. But I'm going to get away from it and I'll see."
2. Buffalo secures No. 22 pick in 2020 draft
After the weekend's Wild Card games, the Bills, Patriots, Saints and Eagles all locked up their draft spots in the first-round of the 2020 NFL draft.
No. 21 – Eagles
No. 22 – Bills
No. 23 – Patriots
No. 24 – Saints
CBS Sports thinks the Bills need to continue to build around Josh Allen with their first pick in the draft.
Next comes the Bills at No. 22. Buffalo appeared to be a team ahead of schedule, making the playoffs in Josh Allen's second year as starter thanks in large part to an outstanding season from their defense. The front office certainly has areas of improvement to target as the team heads into the offseason, but the Bills' 2020 fortunes will hinge on the continued development of their young quarterback.
The Bills have nine draft picks in the 2020 NFL Draft - first round pick, second round pick, third round pick, fourth round pick, fifth round pick, fifth round pick (from Cleveland), sixth round pick, sixth round pick (from Cleveland), sixth round pick (from New England).
