ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – The Buffalo Bills aren’t finished tinkering with their linebackers this offseason.
Buffalo traded Kelvin Sheppard to the Indianapolis Colts for Jerry Hughes on Monday in a swap of linebackers two days after the NFL draft.
Sheppard, a 2011 second-round pick from LSU, has been inconsistent in two seasons in Buffalo.
Hughes was the Colts’ 2010 first-round draft pick from TCU. He’s had 62 tackles and five sacks in 40 games, including seven starts.
“(Hughes) is a talented guy that did everything we asked of him,” Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said in a statement. “At the same time, we are very pleased to be getting a young linebacker who has been a productive starter in this league.”
The Colts announced they will open their June 12 mini-camp workout to the public.
Admission is free. Doors at Lucas Oil Stadium will open at 2 p.m. Practice begins at 5:30 p.m.
Tebow Time expires as Jets waive QB
The Jets waived quarterback Tim Tebow, ending an embarrassingly unsuccessful one-season experiment in New York.
His NFL future is now in doubt, and the CFL could be a landing spot. Montreal has exclusive negotiating rights to him.
