I'm all for improving the offense but who's available that improve things enough to be worth losing someone else who they have reps with.

Anybody really, forget reps unless they cant put it together in a game.

Bills have claimed Jordan Phillips who was waived by the Dolphins after a sideline temper tantrum on Sunday.

Waived then signed means we get his previous contract, or new contract?

I thought it said claimed off waivers ? Interesting , as signed instead of “ claimed” would mean a new contract vs claiming the existing one.

I love that we are improving the D but when do we start adding to the other side of the ball?

Sweet.  Now he can get blown out by New England three times in a single season.

Nice signing.

 

Hopefully he can start next to Star.

I love how "sign anyone who can help" on Sunday evening turns into "not him, Beane/McD sucks!!" by Wednesday.

Seems to have pretty good quickness off the line for a huge DT

Still researching Hapless but I believe the Bills inherit the existing contract, which in Phillips' case expires this year.  We owe him his contractual game checks for as long as he is with the Bills this year.

Bills owe him the remaining base salary (about $358K) for this year divided by 12 game checks...so about $30K per week.

But, it's all about the culture🤔

 

Don't believe anything a coach says at a press conference. They don't care about them. It's probably their least favorite part of the job and they just go through the motions.

Thanks JoeF!  That's not bad risk/reward then even if he doesn't pan out.

Character trumps strategy.

 

               Desperation trumps character.

 

                                        Trump's character is desperate.

That's awesome. He runs, he hurdles. Someone check if he can throw and we have our backup QB!

This pretty much mirrors the type of character McD wants. A guy who wants to be on the field. It’s “culture” over strategy btw. 

 

Giving a 2nd rd talent a change of scenery to see if he can reach his potential is similar to what they did with Corey Coleman.

It's like they went out of their way to put an exclamation point on McDermott's statement re not needing choir boys but people who are passionate about playing football.

So is signing Dez next?

I was just kidding, I don't care who they bring in so long as it improves the team ;)

Actually they want better ones, which is why they keep bringing in new ones to see if they suck a little less than the other guy.

A better acquisition than Star, IMO. 

If the guy comes in and does the same job as Star is doing they can cut ... Ohh wait never happen....
