To put it lightly, the Buffalo Bills were busy during the 2014 NFL Draft. They executed five trades - one involving their 2015 first-round pick to land Sammy Watkins, another to send Stevie Johnson to San Francisco - and picked up at least two new starters on offense, as well as up to four more contributors on draft weekend.

To recap all that went on, and to discuss the Bills' newest players, Dan Kadar, the resident draft guru for SBNation.com, joined host Matt Warren to break down Watkins, Cyrus Kouandjio, Preston Brown, Ross Cockrell, Cyril Richardson, Randell Johnson and Seantrel Henderson. Give it a listen, and share with a friend!

It has been two months since the Buffalo Rumblings Podcast recorded a new episode, and in the time that's passed between the Bills' regular season finale and the days following Super Bowl XLVIII, an awful lot has happened. Andre Reed has been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Bills have made a lengthy list of coaching changes, highlighted by replacing Mike Pettine with Jim Schwartz at defensive coordinator. Oh, and a notorious ex-Bill, Marshawn Lynch, is now a Super Bowl champion. Brendan, Brian and Matt cover all of that and more, plus take some live questions from readers, in this week's episode.

Andre Reed, the greatest wide receiver in Buffalo Bills history, is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Class of 2014. His upcoming induction, on August 2, 2014 in Canton, ends a lengthy wait for Reed to join his Super Bowl era colleagues - Marv Levy, Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, James Lofton and Bruce Smith - in the Hall. Buffalo Rumblings' Matt Warren hosted a live Hangout immediately following the announcement; this is the audio from that celebratory gathering.

The Buffalo Bills are 6-10. Again. They're drafting in the 8-12 range (No. 9, to be exact) of the draft. Again. Fans are wondering if the team has a long-term solution at quarterback. Again. In our year-end podcast, Brendan and Brian set the stage for the offseason with a recap of the Bills' 2013 season, a discussion of the futures of players like EJ Manuel, Stevie Johnson and Jairus Byrd, and by finding solace in the fact that hey, at least Bills fans will get to watch Brett Favre at Ralph Wilson Stadium next season. Wait... what?!
