    interesting about Matt Paradis

    The chiefs have a lot of money already invested into their o-line. Fisher is making $12M per year, Tardif is making $8.5M, Schwartz makes $6.6M and Erving makes just over $4M. That’s roughly $31 million between those 4. I don’t think that they felt they could have another $9-10M+ player on the o-line, ans felt that they had a strong enough line that they could make due with Austin Reiter at C.

    Bengals Release Vontaze Burfict

    Wow, the Marvin Lewis era truly is over in Cincinnati... lol. I wonder if any other coach/NFL team will put up with all Burfict’s on field crap? Especially with his play slipping. Im sure he will at least get a shot somewhere else. Raiders, maybe? Paul Guenther is their DC. Poor Vontaze. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy, ami right? 😥 lol

    Will Shady restructure?

    Just out of curiosity, your screen name - do you own/ride a Suzuki GSX-r? Agree about Shady, btw. I think he’s still got plenty left in the tank.

    interesting about Matt Paradis

    https://www.milehighreport.com/2018/5/27/17399220/denver-broncos-matt-paradis-health Sounds like his hip issues were (and/or are) pretty serious. I don’t know if it’s still an ongoing issue, or if his hips are healthy now. But even if his hips are healthy, I would imagine that a surgery of that nature carries some future risks. If it didn’t, I would think that he would have has it done sooner? Plus, Paradis is still rehabbing from that leg injury and while he should be ready to play by the start of the season, it isn’t a 100% guarantee.
  5. Yes, they have done it for other players, especially guys who have worn a letter like ROR, which is why I thought it was interesting. That was my thought as well. I wondered if there may still be some hard feelings over the way things ended. If true, I get it. The Pegulas were damn good to the guy. When he signed that deal in Buffalo, it was the biggest contract in Sabres history (now Eichel’s is). It was a super, super player friendly deal. He got a better contract structure than most super stars do. Almost his entire contract was paid out in lump sum signing bonuses each July 1st. ROR actually has one of the best structured contracts in the entire NHL. It’s buyout and lockout proof too. If the NHL looks out for the 2020 or 2021 season, ROR still gets his entire salary (unlike most guys). Plus they went and signed ROR’s brother to that 2yr $1.4M one way deal. Even though he was a career AHLer, he got a 1 way contract so he got his NHL salary even in the AHL. The Pegulas even let ROR record at their studio (a life long dream of his), and hooked him up with some professional musicians too. Just to be clear, I am not saying I agreed with the trade. Just that I get why the Pegulas may still have some hard feelings.
  6. I thought that it was kind of interesting that the Sabres did not do a tribute video for ROR.
  7. bummer. 49 seconds into OT Minnesota wins it off an offensive zone faceoff. That’s a goal Hensley will want back for sure.
  8. The Beauts game is going into overtime after the intermission. Been a really good game.
  9. Go Beauts! Playing for yet another Isobel Cup!
  10. Penn is nowhere near the player he used to be, and is 36. Definitely wouldn’t consider him a top o linemen anymore.

    Le’Veon Bell Signinig With the Jets

    It looks like the Bell/Bills stuff was nothing more than rumors. I don’t think the Bills were ever actually in on Bell. There’s this - and then there is this - https://theathletic.com/870418/2019/03/15/it-takes-a-village-behind-the-scenes-of-bills-free-agency-with-brandon-beane/ (Subscription required for article) Its from a “behind the scenes in free agency” article that Matthew Fairborn wrote, with a lot of direct quotes from Beane and lots of info on how Beane and his staff handled free agency. So I would have to imagine that Bell info is coming directly from Beane.
  12. May as well add this here, too. We will make this the Brandon Beane interview thread....lol https://www.buffalobills.com/audio/brandon-beane-we-re-excited-about-the-guys Beane on One Bills Live today.
  13. https://theathletic.com/870418/2019/03/15/it-takes-a-village-behind-the-scenes-of-bills-free-agency-with-brandon-beane/ heres a behind the scenes look at free agency with Brandon Beane for those with an athletic subscription. This may not be the best place for this, but I didn’t want to start a new thread for it though, because you need a subscription to read it. Its a pretty long article. Here are a few excerpts (sorry, we’re not allowed to post more than a few paragraphs here). Its a pretty interesting read.

    AJ McCarron cut by Raiders

    If the raiders go into the season with Peterman as their #2, that will mean AJ Maccarron lost his job to Peterman twice in a row, on 2 separate teams. lol
