  1. BG82 Bills Mock Offseason

    It's a minor indiscretion, but I would make sure to have Tyrod under your releases. I just can't see the money working. We will have a decent amount of free cap, but for Star + Cousins. I think you are looking at a Stafford contract for Cousins, 5 years $135 mil, and about $10mil+ a year for Star, plus resigning Kyle and EJ. I like your optimism, I just don't think it could work out financially.
  2. Maxmw22's 2nd Mock Offseason

    2018 Mock Offseason Cuts QB Tyrod Taylor – Taylor is due $18 mil next year, I believe the Bills think that is too much, so rather than renegotiate again, I believe they finally cut ties. The Bills will be on the hook for about $8mil worth of signing bonus left, but save $9.5 mil. (cap savings $9.5 mil) OLB/DE Jerry Hughes (post june 1st). Cutting Hughes after June 1st sends half of his dead money ($5.8 mil) to the 2019 cap. The Bills have disappointed along the DL all year, with Hughes being the highest paid, this makes him the closest out the door. (Cap Savings $7.5 mil) Trade OT Cordy Glenn to Chicago Bears for a 4th rd pick. -We eat the signing bonus for Cordy, but ultimately save $5 mil in cap, while the Bears get Glenn for roughly 3 years $30 mil. Cap Room Before Cuts/Trades - $32mil Cap Room After Cuts/Trades - $54 mil Re-Sign CB E.J. Gaines, 3 years, $27 mil– A reputable site has his market value at $9 mil a year comparable to such CB’s like Prince Amukamara and Dre Kirkpatrick. Both Gaines and White will make a nice starting duo (structured 8, 9, 10mil) DT Kyle Williams, 2 Years, $12 mil – Player option for the 2nd year in case he wants to retire. (structured 5.5, 6.5mil) WR Deonte Thompson 3 years $6.5mil – Thompson has been taken targets from Matthews and could be the speed guy to take the top off for Buffalo allowing Zay Jones to play more in the slot. He should also come relatively cheap (structured 2, 2, 2.5mil) CB Leonard Johnson, 1 year $1 mil- consistency at depth for our defensive backfield SS Shamarko Thomas, 1 year $1mil – non-guaranteed, just depth Cap Room Before resign: $54 mil Cap Room after resign: $36.5 mil Free Agents DT Star Lotulelei, 5 years $52 mil – This will be our big UFA signing, fits McDermott’s pattern of signing former Panther players, and hopefully this will help our atrocious DL (Structured 9, 10, 10, 11, 12) LB Navorro Bowman, 2 years $9.5 mil – He will at least be a short-term starter at MLB, (Structured 4, 4.5) RB Damien Williams, 3 years 7.5 mil – 2nd string RB who provides a pass threat when Shady is off the field. (Structured 2, 2.5, 3.0) QB Chase Daniel, 2 years $3.5 mil – Chase get an opportunity to start if the rookie QB is not quite ready for opening day. (Structured 1.5, 2.0) DE Marcus Smith, 1 year 1.5 mil – One year deal to be a rotational DE FS Rafael Bush, 1 year $1.5 mil – Veteran FS depth Cap Before Free Agency $36.5 mil Cap After Free Agency $17 mil Draft Picks: 1st – QB Lamar Jackson, Louisville 1st (KC) – DE Sam Hubbard, Ohio State 2nd – TE Troy Fumagalli, Wisconsin 2nd (LAR) – DT Maurice Hurst, Michigan 3rd (Phil) – MLB Darius Leonard, South Carolina State 4th (Chi) – RB Bo Scarborough, Alabama 4th – OT Tyrell Crosby, Oregon 5th – WR Jake Wieneke, South Dakota St. 6th (Jax) – CB Derrick Baity, Kentucky Green = Rookies Blue = Free Agents Roster QB: Lamar Jackson, Chase Daniel, Nathan Peterman RB: Lesean McCoy, Damien Williams, Bo Scarborough FB: Patrick DiMarco WR: Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones, Deonte Thompson, Jake Wieneke, Andre Holmes TE: Charles Clay, Troy Fumagalli, Khari Lee, OT: Dion Dawkins, Tyrell Crosby, Jordan Mills, OG: Richie Incognito, Vladimir Ducasse, John Miller, C: Eric Wood, Ryan Groy DE: Shaq Lawson, Sam Hubbard, Marcus Smith, Ryan Davis DT: Star Lotulelei, Kyle Williams, Maurice Hurst, Adolphus Washington, OLB: Lorenzo Alexander, Matt Milano, Tanner Vallejo, MLB: Navorro Bowman, Darius Leonard CB: Tre'Davious White, E.J.

  3. ML's Annual End of Season Mock

    the chart is a nice guide, but I think it is more out of date now. I was going to point out though that KC went from 27 to 10 by trading a future 1st rounder, and usually a future 1st rounder = pick #33 this year. So I am thinking that 21 and 22 alone should be able to get to around 7 or 8 this year.
  4. Draft question, guys...

    with the Clemson DL returning, I'm not convinced that the talent at 21 and 22 will be there when it comes to DT. I mean if the value is there, sure, but I don't think there will be.
  5. Throw the House at Cousins

    I did want to add that I think of they franchise Cousins for a 3rd year, I believe it will be for $34 mil...which is just stupid money.

    game day guys! from 2014 but I will leave this here
  7. Around the NFL

    I work from 4am till noon. They let me leave early at 10am.
  8. Around the NFL

    Just wanted to let people know that when I went to work today (I live and work in Cincinnati) that I got a ton of thank yous and lot of Bengal fans adopting and rooting for our Bills today.
  9. Around the NFL

    all things being equal, we do own the chiefs 1st rounder soooo...
  10. Playoffs? Are you kidding me?! Bills @ Phins Week 17 GDT

    golfer Jack Nicklaus, OLeary is his grandson.
  11. Playoffs? Are you kidding me?! Bills @ Phins Week 17 GDT

    A bit ironic for myself not necessarily rooting against the Bengals all year, but enjoying hear their fan base cry. Now I have to root for them. Thinking it is only a 2 hour flight to KC or Jacksonville. Let's take care of business.
  12. 3 Round Mock Offseason - *Updated 12/23*

    Appreciate the work, I am not sure about the Bills drafting a QB and trading for one. You could go either one, but with only 35 people signed to the roster next year, even if they wanted to, I can't see them doing both.
  13. Week 16 GDT - Bills @ Pats

    The whole hood want 'em...
  14. Case Keenum

    Ironically I think some team (even possibly us) will make a play to trade for Nick Foles if he has even an average output the rest of the season.
  15. College QB Watchlist

    Right now that would be a move from 21 to 6. I would give 21, our 2nd this year and next year. I don't think that would be enough. The Bills are hindered by a lot of free agents next year, draft picks could be held at a premium to just fill out the roster. 35 players under contract, 32 mil in cap space. Jordan Matthews, EJ Gaines, Preston Brown, and Kyle Williams are all free agents. We will more than likely cut Tyrod next year and save $10mil in cap space, but even still, It will be no small feat to fill out this roster in 2018.
