How a diet helped turn Preston Brown into NFL's leading tackler

Brown does not fit McD's scheme, which features more athletic sideline to sideline LBs. Think Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly. He's not looking for 2 down slow footed types like Brown who, while piling up the tackles, isn't in the mold of what he needs to play an attacking style of defense.

 

Buffalo shouldn't commit anything to someone who doesn't work just to say they have a guy there, which is what Brown is. 

 

Brown will hit UFA next month. If the Bills were keen on re-signing him they would have done so already and I've heard absolutely nothing about his people and the team engaged in contract talks.


I get what you're saying, but I think McDermott/Frazier are more adaptable than you think when it comes to who fits their scheme. I think they like Brown's availability, attitude, and consistency. I also think that, while Brown is not the most athletic linebacker around, many Bills fans underrate him. 

As I said originally, he's not a star and not a Davis or a Kuechly. What he IS is a guy who will be healthy, stay out of trouble, quarterback your defense, and be top 5 in the league in tackles every year. I think they'd like to have that card in hand for the time being. They will eventually look to upgrade him when the time is right, but with as many holes as they currently have elsewhere on the roster, I don't see how they can afford to let Brown walk. Put it this way: Wouldn't you rather have Brown in house WHILE you look for an upgrade/better fit? Letting him walk away leaves the cupboard completely bare in that department. Not good business.

Teams overspend in FA. He is not going to get elite money but I think he will still get paid and to me those resources are better used elsewhere. If he is willing to take a team friendly deal to stay I would listen but I wouldn't be upset if he leaves. The front 7 on defense and offensive line both need to be retooled this year in addition to finding a QB.

We thought Zach Brown would get a big payday too and he didn’t. I think Zach is better than Preston. LBs are undervalued in FA imo. But I like Preston and hope he gets paid somewhere.

Yeah, but that usually means they called to see how much the agent thinks he's worth, and then make him a ridiculous lowball offer. Just because they called to chat doesnt mean they are very interested. If we could get him at vet min, then maaaayyybe. I'm hoping/expecting to move on.

 

Doubt they are going to offer him veteran minimum.

Yeah, I jumped thoughts there. Sorry. That's what I would want him back at, because I know he wouldnt take it and the Bills wouldnt offer it. (hint: I just want him gone)

No kidding. Your slanting of facts makes it obvious.

What? Where was anyone arguing as fact? Why so serious?
