Source: Bills sent offer for Bledsoe
19 Apr 02 / by Fred Kirsch

A source inside the Patriots organization confirmed that Personnel Director Scott Pioli has received an offer for Drew Bledsoe from the Buffalo Bills.

The offer involves draft picks for the 2003 season, and, according to the source, was not accepted since, “the Patriots organization is focused on the 2002 season and draft.”

More information on this story will be posted as it becomes available but at this time, it looks like Bledsoe will remain a Patriot, at least through this weekend’s draft.
