The Buffalo Bills invested a lot in their first round pick.
The Bills dealt their first and fourth round picks in the 2014 draft to move up from nine to four to select former Clemson Tigers’ wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The Bills also struck a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to acquire troubled receiver Mike Williams and sent veteran Stevie Johnson to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Bills clearly loaded up on receivers to make second-year quarterback E.J. Manuel’s job easier. However, they would like to get rid of one.
According to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com, the Bills have had T.J. Graham on the trade block for some time.

Mike Rodak of ESPN.com believes Graham would likely fetch a late-round, conditional draft pick if he is traded but teams may be willing simply waiting for him to hit the waiver wire.
If the Bills are able to deal Graham, it would likely be for a late-round, conditional choice.
Teams might also be waiting for Graham to hit the waiver wire. Unless the Bills keep seven receivers, Graham could be waived by this weekend.
Last season, Graham made 23 receptions for 361 yards and two touchdowns. The Bills selected Graham with the 69th-overall selection in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Graham, entering his third season, had 31 receptions for 322 yards and one touchdown as a rookie in 2012.
