Tyler Dunne from Bleacher Report created some buzz on Tuesday when he said with John Murphy and Steve Tasker on One Bills Live that former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins had spoken to the team this offseason about a possible reunion.

"He said that the Bills were interested," Dunne said. "He had been talking to the Bills about coming back here before they traded for Stefon Diggs. I texted him, I was like, 'Could you make that work with a coach who you obviously didn't necessarily jive with before?' He said, 'Absolutely.' That the place he's at in life, in his words, dealing with all energies and entities in life, he would've made it work."

However, our own Sal Capaccio reached out to the Bills and general manager Brandon Beane, and he said that what Watkins said is completely false.

Dunne dropped an in-depth piece on Tuesday on Watkins that detailed the hardships in Watkins' life since joining the NFL, including plenty on his time in Buffalo.
