  1. The window is this year. Josh's cap hit goes from $16 million to $39 million next year. That means we will need to shed cap space in the form of letting someone go (Poyer?) or simply not extending good players coming off rookie deals. Ultimately, this will result in the Bills being more frugal and not being able to make many splashy FA moves. The Bills will shift to a team that looks to fill holes through cost efficient late and mid round picks. Now, it's not to say that they can't win a super bowl like this, but it's sure as ***** a hell of a lot harder. The Bills will need Josh to shift to a Brady-style below market value contract if they want to be perennial winners.
  2. There will be some pretty severe consequences unless Allen renegotiates in a couple years. The Bills will shift from a team that can get good players in free agency and re-sign their own, to one that can't afford good players on a 2nd contract. We will become a team that relies on their 3rd round pick to outplay their contract. There is a reason the top paid QBs don't win Super Bowls, and teams with QBs on rookie/below market value deals do.
  3. Brady had the 6th highest cap hit among QBs in 2020 and is 15th this year: https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/rankings/2020/cap-hit/quarterback/ https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/rankings/cap-hit/quarterback/ He was even lower on total cash paid at 8th. Mahomes also has a super low cap hit because his extension hasn't even kicked in yet.
  4. If Mahomes doesn't renegotiate his contract to lower his cap hit in future years, then yes I question his desire to win multiple Super Bowls. History tells us that top paid QBs do not win championships, and that QBs with team friendly deals do.
  5. Depends on how serious Josh is about winning a Super Bowl. Tom Brady owes a lot of his success to his frequent pay cuts and team friendly deals. If he just wants to get paid like Russell Wilson, then he'll take the biggest deal possible. What kind of deal Josh takes will tell us a lot about his football character.

  8. You let him walk. The highest paid QB has missed the playoffs 8 out of the last 10 years, and no QB has ever won a SB making more than 13.1% of the cap. The last 8 Super Bowl winners have been QBs on rookie deals or ones with deals significantly below market value (Brady, Foles, Peyton). If Beane is serious about winning a Super Bowl he won't even come close to making Josh the highest paid player in the league.
  9. Seems like his fall off in play coincided with his shoulder injury. He was one of the best corners in football early on in the season.
  10. Sure it does, because it shows the liabilities you have on your books. If the Bills spend all $90 million next year they'll still have over $100 million in 2021 to spend. It gives them a ton of freedom this offseason knowing that they'll still have more than enough to sign their own.
  11. Yes, which is why the Bills are listed as having around $200 million in 2021 cap space. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/buffalo-bills/cap/2021/
