Here is a sampling of the initial Twitter reaction to the Bills' trade of AJ McCarron to the Oakland Raiders:
I’m not surprised because Josh Allen looked good this preseason and this coaching staff just LOVES Nate Peterman (maybe a little too much). Glad they got an asset for McCarron. Injury messed up his chance to win starting job

@hsimon62 McCarron went from getting traded last mid season for a 1st round top 5 pick (Browns forgot to fax in the paperwork), to getting beaten out by Allen and Peterman and traded for a 5th round pick.

AJ McCarron was traded to the Raiders. The Bills will now probably start Nathan Peterman. He was awful last season. I don't see the Bills being very good this year. Also, Josh Allen is overrated and bombed against good teams in college.

Gruden is dumb, but let's not put McCarron on blast for something he didn't really do.
