Bills Get Bledsoe for First Round Draft Choice in 2003
The Buffalo News reports that the Buffalo Bills traded a first round draft choice in 2003 to the New England Patriots for Drew Bledsoe.
According to reporter Mark Gaughan, "The deal represents the Bills' biggest trade in at least 15 years, since they acquired linebacker Cornelius Bennett in 1987." Gaughan goes on to say that the Bills "...added nine new veterans in free agency. Then they got one of the most prized college players in the nation Saturday when they drafted 375-pound University of Texas offensive tackle Mike Williams. Now they have a proven quarterback."
