So that's that.A media report coming out of the NFL Meetings in Orlando last month quoted two unnamed league personnel sources saying they "expect the team (the Bills) to put the former first-round pick (quarterback J.P. Losman) on the trade block before the start of the 2006 season - if he isn't already there."
Citing that there is no truth whatsoever to the report, Bills General Manager Marv Levy today ended any speculation by saying, "There really is no substance to that report. We've made no overtures to anyone. No one has approached us and even if they did, we have a regard for J.P. He's a young quarterback who has put in that learning time. I can name countless others who have gone through this process. There are many things about him that we like, such as his work ethic, his personal motivation and his skills are all pluses. Part of the good news is that he has yet to reach what he is capable of reaching. So, as we said before, it's an open competition at quarterback and J.P. is very much a part of it and we fully intend to have him in it."
No one from the Bills organization was contacted by the reporter for the story and the team wants to put an end to the speculation as the report has appeared in a couple of notes columns across the country.
