Over the past couple of days, the San Diego Chargers released future Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson and former all-star and NFL yards from scrimmage leader Brian Westbrook was released by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Both players have had great careers, but both are past their prime, and commentators have discussed how teams are no longer willing to take chances on thirty-year old running backs who have taken a lot of hits over the years. That's a little depressing for me, because I turn thirty in a couple of weeks, but my primary concern is that one of these two players is going to end up on the Buffalo Bills.
If you're a football fan, tell me if this chain of events would surprise you: the Bills sign LT, the Buffalo News runs about 50 articles along the lines of: "You should be excited because the Bills just signed a future Hall of Famer", LT averages 3.7 yards per carry and takes 200 carries away from Fred Jackson, the Bills undervalue Fred Jackson because he didn't touch the ball enough, Jackson rushes for 1300 yards for another team in 2011.
Seriously, what are the odds that this will happen? Can we place bets on this? If not, is it because nobody would willing to bet against this happening?
