WR Russell Shepard released from Carolina; scheduled to meet with Bills

Recommended Posts

He was also ST captain for two years in Tampa. McD sending the private jet.

His drop in production is concerning.  It’s not like Buffalo has been the land of turnaround stories for poorly performing WR’s.

This dude has only caught 47 passes over 5 seasons. Was on a 3 year contract paying $10 Million & he requested to be released after being asked to take a pay cut. Given his production, what makes this guy think he's worth more than what he was being paid? With his stat line he'd be lucky now to be added as a depth player somewhere.

 

I know McBeane & Co. have a tendency to acquire Carolina has beens, but this is 1 guy I'd like them to stay away from. Only way I'd be okay with it is if they brought him in for the league minimum on a try out contract. Other than that this guy is a hard NO imo.

 

GO BILLS!

Seems like the typical below average receiver McBeane love.

He still has yet to throw a pass.

 

I think you’ll get that reference, Kirby!

The last time I checked, Carolina hasn't really been the end-all place to pull talent from.

As long as he doesn't think he's some alien lizard, give him a tryout.

That alien lizard is actually good though.

They also haven't had a QB worth much in the pass game.

Maybe he doesn't want to play there. Maybe he attributes his lack of production to the coaching staff not utilizing him. It's not always about the money.

There is probably more to the story ... Beane would likely know what happened and if it’s worth a look

Meh.  Not much pro production.  His measurables don't blow you away.  He looks like more of what the Bills already have, if that.

Why don’t all the Browns try this approach?

This Bills must have employed the most former QBs that changed positions. Shepard is a not brainer. He is the new Brad Smith, Joe Webb, Logan Thomas...
