My FA targets

Recommended Posts

Obviously things can change between now and training camp but here's my list of FA's we need to sign.

 

Number 1, Sheldon Richardson. I doubt the Vikings will let him walk but he hasn't signed an extension yet and if it remains that way, Buffalo needs to pay up. The thought of Richardson, Phillips, and Hughes on the d-line is very intriguing. We have the cap space. Don't be cheap.

 

My number 2 FA target would be a guy that not many are talking about here.

Quincy Enunwa would be my number 1 FA priority at the WR position. A big body WR that can work the middle of the field and won't cost much against the cap. IMO the best bang for your buck in this sorry FA WR class.

 

Lastly, sign C Matt Paradis. Desperately need a quality veteran Center that can help Josh Allen on the field. Help Josh with the blocking schemes and most importantly communicate to Josh what he sees when they're lined up. Don't be cheap on a veteran Center to help Allen grow.

 

IMO this fills positions of need and puts us in a situation to draft BPA in the draft. Grab best available player at CB, WR, OT, RB and go from there.

I feel like we’re ok with Star, Harry and *Jordan Phillips.  I’d probably be ok with Richardson though since we can pay for unnecessary stuff while JA is on a rookie contract.   

 

I’d replace Enunwa with Tyrell Williams.  

 

Absolutely agree with Paradis.

Justin Phillips?  Jordan Phillips is a FA.  I’d love to resign him though

 

 I’d be ok with Enunwa or Tyrell.  Whichever comes cheaper.  

 

Paradis is my #1 FA target.  I just don’t see Denver letting him leave.  Eleay knows how valuable a guy like him is.  But we can hope

You're really OK with those 3 guys in the interior? None are pass rushers and adding Richardson will create instant pressure up the middle. None of our DTs are anywhere near the level of Richardson.

 

IMO we need a more physical presence at WR. All our WR's are small and adding a 230 pound WR can help and absorb a lot of punishment. Tyrell is not a "work the middle" kinda WR.

I’ll take Paradis and either Rodger Saffold, or Daryl Williams.

 

im okay with Enunwa, but wouldn’t mind someone like golden Tate.

 

i also think we should bring back EJ Gainess as a rotational corner.

 

i also think Jay Ajayi could be a sneaky good pickup to pair with either Shady or someone else.

We can't go cheap at WR. Throw some serious cash at Tyrell Williams and see what happens. Might not be the easiest task to lure the guy away from SD, but we can afford to overpay for such a critical position wrt the development of Allen.

Yup. Was watching an old bills dolphins divisional round matchup...man we had an OLine. I've pounded this drum for too long, but I'd prioritize the OLine over receiving threats if you made me choose. Of course we should do both, though :)

Do NOT pay another free agent RB when you can just draft one in the 4th-5th round.  That much I feel strongly about.

 

As far as Tate, tell me I'm wrong but isn't that kind of the player Zay Jones is/could be/is trending toward?  I am all in on trying to trade for and blowing a huge wad on a true #1 stud WR.  Real #1 WR's just do not become available in free agency.  I hesitate to even say it because it sounds like a fantasy but let's trade for a Julio Jones.  If any team has the means to do it, it's the Bills.  That's where I'm at.

Sign a whole new starting caliber O-line in FA and let them battle it out with Dawkins and Teller. 

Unpopular opinion - sign Le'veon Bell. Assuming a revamped o-line, a top 3 RB would take a ton of pressure off of Allen and if we could get modest WR play we could be legitimate contenders for a couple of years while Allen is on his rookie deal. It might seem insane to pay a guy that much money, but players that good change your whole team. We can absolutely afford it, as as long as the term isn't too long I think it would be a very aggressive move that could put us in a Big Ben year 2 situation if everything rolls just right.

Have you seen this list of FA WRs? You'd be STUPID to break the bank for any one of these guys.

Tyrell Williams is a better version of Benjamin.  Great hands, fast, and gives 100% effort.  Not the greatest route runner but good enough.

 

I don't think Tyrell Williams is that good. With a raw QB like Allen, he needs a good route runner that can run the short and intermediate routes. We get speed and can get a deep threat in the draft. Allen needs a reliable route runner.

Let me ask you this. What's McCoy done for us?

Enough said.

Just watched that as well (44-34, ‘90 Div Round). Most amazing was how svelte the OL was. Yes, Ballard was as big as -well, a House, but there were no tubs of goo back then. Hull, Ritcher & Wolford were chiseled fit.

I don't think our OL is all that far away from being solid. Wyatt Teller and Dawkins have proven to be more than capable. We desperately need a center and if we can pick up an OT to play opposite Dawkins, our O-line could be dominant. We're only 2-3 players away from having a solid line. 

 

I'm more concerned with CB depth, WR, and RB at the moment. I don't see McCoy coming back next year.

He was a key part of why we were able to claw to the playoffs last season, and taylor didn't have anywhere near the skillset of Allen. McCoy also gave us a fighting shot the year before when we had no business being there. If you want to win you have to have great play from QB, RB and WR. Signing Bell gets us the opportunity to have 2/3 and then we can try to find our 3rd.

 

You could draft a guy, sure, but it wouldn't be a sure thing. I'd do both to make it one.

 

Also worth mentioning that McCoy wasn't half the player Bell is. Bell can actually run between the tackles and don't fall over on contact.

What's Gurley doing for Goff and the Rams?

You can't run and defense your way to championships with Mark Rypien and Trent Dilfer anymore, but I think you can if you've got a guy that can hit a speedy receiver 60 yards down the field on occasion.

Our defense had more to do with that than anything.

 

 

BTW. Give me a list of all the RBs that played in the last 10 Super Bowls. lol. You won't see an Adrian Peterson, Ezekiel Elliott, Lesean McCoy, DeMarco Murray, on that list. In fact, how many Super Bowls have stud RB's have even played in the Super Bowl? Curtis Martin? Ladainian Tomlinson? Eagles, Patriots, Falcons have proven that you don't need to break the bank for a RB to make the SB. Overpaying a RB like Bell will never be the solution. 

 

What's Gurley doing for Goff and the Rams? What did he do before McVay? What was Goff before McVay? Don't kid yourself. McVay deserves most of the credit for their immediate success. LOL. What a joke of a comment. 

 

Let me ask you another question. Steelers lose a step with Connor running the ball?

No, you just lack the ability to be moved at all from your stance, and I don't waste my time with people like you.

Answer my question. How's the Steelers running game without Bell? Conner doing bad? 

 

And why'd you delete your idiot comment? lol.
