It would suck to lose him before he even got to be here for one off season. With that being said I find it hard to imagine him packing up his family again after less a season.

I agree but the $ difference between his current title and GM role is typically pretty significant.  I think it might be more about whether he wants to work with O’Brien as he would be initimately familiar with how he operates. Wherever and whenever he takes s GM job I assume he will want to be in a situation where he feels relatively set up for success and may wait out the right opportunity. It’s usually hard to get back into a GM job if ever fired. Gettleman seems to be an exception. If he feels comfortable with O’Brien, it’s a good situation imo because they already have their QB on a rookie deal for 3 more years plus the option and many pieces in place.

think you are correct, all rests with O'Brien. Good situation there with the QB in place. 

 

And he would be nuts not to take a GM role, no big deal moving. 

 

And Dorsey for the Browns was also fired and then rehired

Dorsey and Gettleman seem to have bucked the recent trend.

Anyone know of anyone we could potentially sign to be VP of Player Personnel? Im guessing Boyd recieves a promotion and that we hire someone to replace Boyd.

Honestly he’s really good as long as he’s behind the scenes and not the face of the FO. He’s like Whaley. 

 

That said I think he’s in a similar role now and won’t move from Jax to Bflo. Only move he will make imo is for another GM role or maybe a lateral move to Charlotte where his wife is from.

That has been rumored (not the NYG part, which is interesting) but that he wants out of Houston. I think going back to last year.

 

IF he wants out of Houston I find it interesting as he probably doesn't love Deshaun Watson.

Why don't we just bring back Whaley?

I wish Gaine luck in his interview but if I am honest I am Really hoping we don't lose him so quickly.

Thanks for wasting our time and stealing information Gaine.  Truly was a waste of 7 months.

Unfortunately if the Bills continue the upward trend, this is what happens to good teams, especially those that are well run. It’s part of the sustainability issue of success (which I’m not saying the Bills have found yet) and why the Bills need to continue to develop young FO talent - as much as they do Coaching and player talent.

Bummer. 

 

Figured Gaine was gone as soon as Green Bay hired Brian Guntekunst. He was supposedly the guy the Texans wanted, with Gaine being choice #2. 

 

Really sucks Gaine didn't even have one draft here. But I'd assume that he's done a lot of work on this draft class, so at least we have all the player evaluations he's done so far. 

 

The Texans could really screw us in this draft, though. They draft in front of us in every round.

He was the director of pro personnel... Handles free agent signings. Not drafts.
