LA or Buffalo.  A team looking to contend or a rebuilding team.  We didn't have a chance my dude

 

You know this because the Bills FO called him. Ooo wait no they didnt.

Thats what I quoted and if you could follow along it would be much easier. 

 

 

OOOOO SO NOW that it was showed they could have signed a better player you move the goalposts. TYPICAL

Not moving the goal post, sticking to the original quote. About signing an pro bowl center. It was posted before you commented. Sorry you are having a hard time following.

They gave the defense Star, Murphy, Davis and Edmunds in Rd 1.

 

They gave the offense and Josh Allen....Chris Ivory.

 

Atrocious.

You forgot Kerley... Oh, wait

Bush has been good and I bet if Ivory got more touched he would be ok. He’s very physical. Mccarron never should have been traded. That’s just another bonehead move by this GM.

Yeah but Star is over 11 million next year, 10 million in 20 and still has 5 million in dead money in 21 if we cut him.   I just dont see a lot of savings there long term.

Darius Cost 47 mill over 19,20 and 21.

2018 free agent class is  absolutely horrible.

Star- played on skates Sunday.

Gaines- worse defensive player on field ( other than star)

Murphy- few snaps

McCarron- on other team

Davis- inactive

Bodine-back up

Newhouse- backup

Ivory- overpaid backup

 

No faith in us having 80 million in cap space, just more ways to screw it up.

 

Star is doing what he was brought in to do.  Gaines is doing well playing nickel which he was actually brought in for.  Ivory isn't a backup he's a complimentary back and looked really good today.  Davis was a roll of the dice not high priced.  The others were given modest contracts to compete.

Pouncey stated he wanted to play with a "Hall of Fame caliber QB".  Again, you can dream but you have to be realistic about our position when it comes to free agency.  We are clearly in a full rebuild.  7 year veteran and 28 year old Mike Pouncey surely didn't want to join a full rebuild.  He had interest from 6 teams.  We would have had to grossly overpay just for him to look our way.

Money talks. That is the reality. Would Pouncy signed here for Star money??  Just a question.

You're missing my point,    If we have 13 million in dead Marcel money,  plus if we take Star on  just a 3 year deal, the 6 this year, 11 next year, 10 the year after that and 5 million in dead money in 21 and add that up.   its 45 million.     No real savings and I would rather have Dareus.

  To be fair we had a lot of holes and not a lot of cap room to plug them with any degree of quality.  The end of 2019 will give us a much better idea of how good current management is.  Hopefully, a lot of this draft class will stick and they can take the next step with the 2019 draft class allowing us to use our FA dollars on fewer but higher quality FA's.

A lot of these new posters are clueless to the reality of the NFL.  There are knowledgeable diehard fans on here and ingnorant diehard fans as well as people who think they know about football just because they LoL.

 

More and more I find myself just shaking my head and reading the next post.  What you are saying is going to fall on deaf ears.

Star played very well on Sunday. I do not understand the narrative on him. He was constantly doubled and still got a great push. Did you watch him every play? I went back and did and you are incorrect.

I paid special attention to him and you are absolutely correct. He did exactly what he was supposed to do

Who said Pouncey wanted to sign with us?  A team that lost 3 veteran offensive lineman this offseason and he would be protecting a rookie QB.  This isn't madden.  The player has to want to come here.  If I were him, I'd have chosen the Chargers if Buffalo and the Chargers offered a contract.  LA vs. Buffalo... A team looking to go to the playoffs versus a team clearly in rebuilding mode. I don't think we would have ever been an option.


Well, by the time Mike Pouncey signed we had already used the dollars for both Trent and for Star. I believe we also had already signed Bodine. So ... yeah. I'm thinking that there would have been no reason for Pouncey to have wanted to sign with us because at that point we didn't have the capital to do it.

My read on the NFL is that players generally go where the money is, especially players signing contracts in the $7.5MM per year area. They sign where there is expressed interest and interest is expressed in dollars. Seems pretty clear to me that the Bills made absolutely no effort to get anything but crap to build up the offensive line.

You can have a different opinion. But the dollars were spent early and hard on Dline (March 15th) and that was after they had traded away their top offensive lineman (March 12). 

We made ourselves NOT be an option.

This is rhetorical, yes?

Yes, shortly after he signed the contract.

Not that those two things are related.

We saved 54 million total when we traded Darius. Cutting Star after 3 costs 32 million according to your numbers.

Not that cut and dry.  An NFL career is short.  He is 28 and wanted to play for a contender, I don't blame him.  He is still making a solid chunk of change, so why shouldn't he choose a contender for a little less cash.  Plus, being in LA in his twenties over being in Buffalo...there's a bunch of factors.  Some players aren't all about the money.

As if the defensive line wasn't a big need?  Can't fill all the holes in one offseason.  Teams find placeholders at a lower price until they find the right player for their scheme and team.  Were we supposed to hold off while players got signed to see if he got released?  I can't imagine what this board would have done if we had waited for him and he signed somewhere else and we ended up with nobody.

32 plus 13 in  dead money is 45 million.

Cost of keeping Darius 67 million (we saved 54, got stuck with 13 dead) total savings 22 million.
