I'm not a big fan of Chris Brown. I don't see the Bills looking at him seriously unless its for depth and if they don't plan on keeping A-Train.

I actually like Brown. I think he could be an upgrade over Anthony Thomas even as a backup, however, i'm not as high on him to say he can be a #1 or even split time with Thomas at #1. I think he's a good guy for a few plays, he's a good reciever and would be a solid addition to our redzone offense.

He doesn't really have many receptions in his career... also, he seems pretty injury prone.

True, idk what i was thinking. Although he's not horrible. lol He gets good production when he gets the ball, but he just doesnt catch too often. haha.

What kind of injuries did he have? I'd still prefer him over Thomas though.

As a rookie in 2003, Brown was benched for the pre-season and five regular season games due to a hamstring injury.

At the beginning of the 2004 season, Brown was promoted to starting running back but several injuries forced him to miss significant time and also affected his play. In January 2005 successful surgery was performed on both of Brown's ankles.

With the re-emergence of Travis Henry, Brown was deactivated for several games in the 2006 season.

Chris Brown is a solid 2 ...10 to 15 carries. He runs upright so he takes a lot of big hits which leaves him open to injuries. It will depend on what develops with McGahee.

He never seemed like a high charcter guy yo me, but I'm ill-informed, and info on that front?

If we deal McGahee, he'd be a nice addition, but we'd need a solid scatback in addition (which will probably look to add anyways).

Trade McGahee and sign Brown? This is what the Bills braintrust wants? They must not have had their fiber this week. If this comes to fruition, the 3.9 yards per carry Willis had is going to seem like Pro Bowl numbers compared to what Brown is going to average in the three games he playes before he gets hurt.

True, I agree with you 100 percent. But I prefer to read things from people when they know what they are talking about.

Why would you compare the two, if we had brown, we wouldn't use him the way we use Willis. He's right you don't seem to know enough to talk the way you are about our team.

Yeah you guessed it, that's what the Bills wanna do.

Dude, how bout you think for a second and then post? Maybe the Bills want to draft Marshawn Lynch and sign Chris Brown as his backup?

Please tell me you'd be upset over Lynch/Brown duo?

Hell, i'd even be happy with a Lynch/Thomas duo!
