    Shaq Lawson 5th year option

    No chance. By giving him the 5th year option you are announcing to Lawson and his representatives that his baseline worth is north of $9M per season, whih is the value of the 5th year option for a DE selected between pick 11-32. While some can argue Lawson had a nice year last year and showed some improvement....paying a player like Shaq Lawson $9M a year would be insane. He's at best an average player, and avg. players can be replaced by players playing for much less than $9M a season. If the Bills think Shaq is worth $5-$7M a year they simply can't put the option on him because the player and agent than totally over value their worth.
  2. This was also hinted big time by a guest on the Cowherd show this past week. I can't quite remember who the guest was, but it was at the very end of the interview, and he said it in a manner that made it seem like the Chargers were going to land him.
  3. Murray before pick 9 is a lock Lock before 9 is probable, IMO Haskins before 9 is 50/50 Unlike what you see in the media right now, I think Lock is viewed as a better prospect in NFL circles and if I were to bet I'd be surer about him going in the top 10 than Haskins. My ideal scenario is Murray goes right away, Lock goes somewhere in the 4-8 range and teams that want a QB start calling the Bill's looking to move up for what they view to be the last 1st r 08und quality QB, in Haskins. I'd love to move down about 8-10 spots and pick up an extra 2nd rounder this year and a 3rd rounder next year. More chances at the roulette wheel as far as I'm concerned. That's what the draft is and the smart teams tend to have more chances on the wheel.

    If Allen is real deal, bills make playoffs

    If Allen plays 16 games this year I want to see: -3500 yards passing -600 yards rushing -22 pass TD's -6 rush TD's -less than 12 INT's I would consider this nice progress for year 2.
  5. I actually like Andre Dillard quite a bit. Has the chance to be a very good LT, who excels in pass blocking. The Bills seemed to sign OL in FA that excelled especially in pass blocking, so I would think there would be definite interest in Dillard. Plus LT is a premium position, and I'm never against drafting premium positions early. A OL of: Dillard Dawkins Morse Long/Waddle Nsekhe could really be pretty strong:

    CB Kevin Johnson (Texans) to the Bills

    Cheaper than I imagined. I thought it was going to be in the $4M neighborhood. A well priced gamble, IMO.

    Ziggy Ansah to visit bills

    Personally, I'd prefer Justin Houston. Houston is 30, and still playing at a very high level. I believe his ask is likely much higher than Ansah's, as it should be.
  8. Many of the defenses Memphis played against were utterly putrid & I've taken that into account, but I think this kid is going to be really good in the NFL. He's quick, fast, and has great vision and contact balance. He also wastes no motion and explodes north south in a hurry. He has the type of juice I'd love to see added to the Bills offense this year. In Year 1, he could be a special teams demon & I believe a real contributor on offense. Think 100-120 touches on offense for 500-650 yards with plenty of explosive plays sprinkled in. Just what the doctor ordered! He reminds me of Devonta Freeman, coming out of FSU. They have almost identical frames and similar hair on fire running styles, although Henderson's 40 yard, vertical & broad jump all show he's a bit faster and more explosive. One potential downside is Henderson has fairly small hands for a RB, which always brings up fumble worries. Top of the 2nd round is a little too early for him, but I'm not sure he's available when we pick in the 3rd. I'd love to trade down in the 1st and pick up an additional 2nd rounder in order to maneuver for Henderson.

    Young Legs - RB David Montgomery - Iowa State

    Give me Darrell Henderson in the 3rd. I love him. He has the homerun ability that I want in a young RB prospect.
  10. It is a pretty generic comment by Lombardi. Kind of lame to put that out there without some details, which a lot of these guys love to do
  11. At this point I'd be pretty upset if any of them pulled the plug....maybe with the exception of Gore or Kroft who seem more likely to play as reserves. I like both WR signings quite a bit
  12. Let's hope none of the Bills signees has a change of heart prior to these signings becoming official at 4PM today. Lombardi had a tweet early this morning saying hes hearing Barr might not be the only one.....first thing I thought of was Beasley or Brown.

    Report - Bills talking to Hou for Clowney

    I think trading high picks (which I consider 1st and 2nd rounders) for vets looking for huge $$$ is bad practice in the NFL. Draft picks are gold because the rookie contracts are so low. Just think of the value of contracts like Matt Milano, Dion Dawkins......you're literally paying .10-.20 on the dollar for what that player would be worth on the open market. You are forgoing the opportunity to get a player at a great price only to hand over an astronomical money to a player on his second contract. It's sexy and exciting when it happens, but in the long run it's bad business.

    Bills one of 6 teams in on Leveon Bell

    This is one I want to stay away from. I'm all for drafting a 3rd or 4th round back and moving on from Shady, who I think is shot, but I think its foolish to spend heavy at the RB position. I'd much rather have $12-$15M per year be spent elsewhere on the roster, rather than at the RB position. That would be a very foolish move and unfortunately one I could see the Bills making, because they've proven time and time again that they are a foolish franchise.
  15. I really like Noah Fant. He is such a weapon in the passing game and big too....he looks like Gronk, the way he plays
