I’m the last couple years, how many players did we actually sign that we were linked to? I can’t remember 1 but maybe I’m wrong

Pre-FA none, post FA if a Buffalo reporter brings it up it’s likely, they key thing is the word interest. Interest doesn’t mean visit, so how likely something is to happen is still a stretch. If the player was coming in for a visit, then there is much more to read in on.

Poona Ford is a worse player than Ed Oliver so I'm not sure what the plan there would be. If they plan on trading Oliver and signing a lesser player to use the resulting cap space on improving the offense 

I'm fine with that. If they're signing Ford as depth behind Oliver that's just more cap space devoted to rotational defensive linemen which would be a mistake IMO.

I would agree with that assessment. Ed is a better talent and better statistically, there is a big difference between Ed’s full potential and Ford’s full potential. That said, without doing tons of research (and let’s be honest, no one on this MB does) I would say Ed’s usual performance isn’t a huge jump from Ford’s usual performance. 
 

The thing that won’t show up on any stat line is whether Ford can plug up running lanes and keep both out 225 pound LBers clean. I’m very curious to find that out, if Bills can actually sign Ford.

I’d say they are rather similar.  Neither of them play at a consistent level.  Ford being 25ish pounds heavier is the only difference
