Jon Robinson said he and Mike Vrabel will talk in coming weeks on position specifics to find their type guys. "Big, tough, fast, smart" remains the same. Vrabel said play speed is more important than timed speed, citing Rodney Harrison.

Mike Vrabel says the defensive coordinator he hires will have 100-percent control of playcalling... except when Vrabel decides he wants to use his HC position to call a blitz or a certain play.

I'm told not all decisions final on Titans 2017 staff. Vrabel said he talked to all of Mike Mularkey's former staff. There will be heavy turnover with all 3 coordinators gone, but returning staff interviews could push beyond Townsend. Chance for a small handful to return.

Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll told the team's official Facebook at the Senior Bowl, "the city of Buffalo and the surrounding areas are as special to me as anything. Besides my family, this community and what they stand for, that's how I grew up. It's a tough town with town people. I just have the world of respect for this place."

Bills general manager Brandon Beane told reporters Tuesday at the Senior Bowl that he "will be cognizant" of the possibility of acquiring compensatory draft selections in 2019, which will require a net loss of free agents this offseason. Beane, hired last May, said he joined the team too late to "do much with" the Bills' net gain of free agents in the 2017 offseason, which prevented Buffalo from receiving likely third- and fourth-round 2018 compensatory picks for the losses of Stephon Gilmore (Patriots) and Robert Woods (Rams).

Bills general manager Brandon Beane told reporters Tuesday at the Senior Bowl that he is not ready to discuss with other teams the possibility of moving up in April's draft, partly because he has yet to assign a value on the players potentially available.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane told reporters Tuesday at the Senior Bowl that the Jimmy Johnson draft trade value chart is still the "baseline" in the NFL but many teams' analytics departments create their own charts, and that trades still demand on competition, demand and the situation.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane told reporters Tuesday at the Senior Bowl of potentially trading up for a quarterback or any position, "That comes with a hefty price to be able to do that from 21 and 22, where we're at. We're not saying we would do that. To go up there, we'd have to really feel good about that."

Bills GM Brandon Beane said Tuesday at the Senior Bowl of the quarterback depth in the draft, "It looks pretty good. I've yet to get to meet any of these guys. We're just starting that process. A lot of these guys have a lot of physical tools. But there's guys every year that have physical tools that when you get down to March or April you say, ‘I don't know. I'm not sure.' So I'll have a much better idea once we get through the combine, pro days and visiting with them."
