Breaking down Bills free agency and draft with Keith Sims

By Tim Graham

With free agency a week away, fans around the country are ravenous for personnel analysis.

Even AFC East rivals want to know what the Buffalo Bills are going to do to patch up their roster for 2013.

Keith Sims, a three-time Pro Bowl guard for the Miami Dolphins, dialed me into his show on 640-AM in South Florida today to discuss the offseason state of the Bills.

Among the focal points: the best way to handle Ryan Fitzpatrick, what Buffalo might do in free agency after last year's disappointing payoff, the prime holes to fill in free agency, how the Bills might use the eighth overall draft pick and two markets dealing with prolonged mediocrity since their Hall of Fame quarterbacks retired.

Sims referred to me as working for ESPN in addition to The Buffalo News, but that's all right. It feels good to be remembered.
