Bills get 5th-rounder, not 6th, for 2010 Lynch trade


It's probably not that important, but whatever. Slow news week.

Wednesday, reported that the NFL confirmed the Bills will receive a fifth-round pick in the upcoming draft for trading Marshawn Lynch to the Seahawks prior to the 2010 season.

Lynch was dealt for a fourth-rounder in 2011 and a sixth-rounder in 2012, with the latter having the chance to improve to a fifth-rounder if Lynch got a certain amount of playing time. Lynch apparently reached the mark.

Buffalo will also get an additional fourth-rounder in dealing Lee Evans to the Ravens prior to last season.

The Bills currently have nine picks in the 2012 draft and could be awarded a compensatory pick, as well.
