Chip Kelly NFL Rumors: Add The Buffalo Bills to the Mix

In addition to Philadelphia and Cleveland, reports are surfacing that Kelly will interview with the Buffalo Bills.

The USA Today is reporting that Chip Kelly will interview with the Buffalo Bills, a new suitor following interest from the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. That makes three of seven NFL openings tied to rumors of Kelly.

Buffalo has the longest playoff drought in the NFL, having not made the playoffs since the 1999 season. The Bills just signed a new lease at Ralph Wilson Stadium, but the short duration (ten years) has an opt-out clause after year seven, meaning that Buffalo is still a team that will come up in potential relocation rumors. With Ralph Wilson in his 90s, ownership is in flux. The Bills finished 6-10 last season, last place in the AFC East. Given all of these factors, it would seem to be the worst of the three jobs that Kelly has been tied to.

Kelly's Oregon Ducks take on Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night.
