Bills sit atop AFC East as trade deadline looms

The NFL Trade Deadline comes on Tuesday at 4 p.m. EST

Tuesday is election day across America, but it's also trade deadline day across the National Football League.

The Buffalo Bills sit at 6-2 and in front of the rest of the AFC East. They're searching for their first division title in a quarter century. Does that mean they're also searching to make deals to bring players in to help them secure that goal?

"I know [general manager] Brandon [Beane] is always looking for ways to improve our football team," head coach Sean McDermott told reporters Monday afternoon, just about 24 hours before the trade deadline at 4 p.m. EST on Tuesday. "I know the deadline is fast approaching here, so nothing we know of right now in terms of in the works, but I know he's continuing to watch to see if anything would be the right fit for us."

Many believe the Bills could be on the lookout for a defensive lineman or linebacker to help strengthen a defense, which currently ranks 26th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per-game. McDermott said he likes what they currently have on their roster, but didn't dismiss the notion of a move being made.

"I like the players that we have in our locker room," he said. "I have a lot of confidence in the players we have inside our building. So I'll leave the rest of it up to Brandon."
