As recently as Sunday, McDermott said Ragland was fighting for a roster spot with the Bills. Ragland missed the entire 2016 season with a torn ACL he suffered in training camp. There were questions about whether he would fit into McDermott's 4-3 defense after he was drafted to play in Rex Ryan's 3-4 scheme. 

The Bills recognized he didn't fit and got more future value in exchange.

Week 1 is looking like an important game to lose with the mutual tanking in full effect.

BUF has a truckload of extra draft picks.  Even if we are ahead of them, they could leapfrog us to #1 if we're not already there.  Either way, I think you will see at least two QBs drafted early by AFCE teams, and the Dolphins are probably contemplating life after Tannehill/Cutler as well.

Field Yates‏  @FieldYates

Source: with Tyrod Taylor and T.J. Yates dealing with concussions, the Bills are signing QB Keith Wenning. Familiar with OC Rick Dennison.

Bills ship Reggie Ragland to Chiefs--house cleaning in Buffalo continues, wonder if Dareus is next?

A repeat of the Geno draft (can't even remember the bum Buffalo reached for in the 1st that year, the name escapes me).....hopefully we do a better job of picking a QB and for Buffalo its more of the same

A second rounder from last year? sheesh was Ragland that bad? I know they're rebuilding but how does a player with one season under their belt not figure into that?

3-4 ILB, might be a bit slow for the 4-3.  He was 3rd string, so what were they going to get from him?

Good get for the chiefs 

The interesting thing about this is the general consensus on the board is that its a smart move by the Bills - however I cant imagine if Mac dealt a player picked one year earlier in the 2nd round, for a 4th rounder.  Pitchforks would be out

Without looking it up, I believe this gives Buffalo two picks in each of the first four rounds of the draft.

This is BS.  I would imagine that if Mac dealt Amaro for a 4th we'd be quite happy and would have been making fun of Idzik. We'd probably be impressed with him getting a 4th for Hackenberg at this point to, but Ragland was a pick by a different front office for a different defense.

Macc trades Hack for a 4th this place would be a standing ovation.

Lol and that must be who Darron fashioned his game after 

Might be good if he had some of those skills :)

There are a lot of bad teams unfortunately. We can't afford to start 1-0 even if there are 3 great QBs coming out next year.

I think more like Buf waging war to get top pick. If the Jets don't own #1 we may see the top QB going within our division. This is a race to the bottom here.

Completely agree. They're accumulating assets to make sure they have a shot at the top QB. We can't let them outtank us. Gotta lose Week 1.

Um, dude... Buddy Nix picked Manuel.  Then Whaley took over.  The new GM is Brandon Beane from the Panthers.  There is no reason to expect the same level of incompetence.  Being a Jets fan has made you think that the dunce cap goes with the uniform, but it doesn't.  People make these choices and these are different people, while we have in place the staff that graded Hackenberg as a 2nd.
