I thought he was probably fools gold, at least to an extent. Plenty of targets still out there at G.

I'm relieved to see that he didn't get serious money; that makes me think that the OG market won't be utterly absurd money-wise...and I'd be happier with any of Saffold, Spain, or Foster than I'd have been with Glowinski.

Good. 100% fools gold. Keep him on an interior with Q and Ryan Kelly and he will look good. Put him with Bodine and Teller he will be a mess.

I am sure teams are Schefty...... but Glowinski is not proof of that.

With the Colts having the most free cap space in the league, I wasn't expecting Glowinski to hit the market anyway.

However, the OT and OG markets have been set with the recent deals of Massie and Glowinski. Given that FAs tend to get more than they're worth, we can expect an OT to fetch between 10 and 13 million per year. An OG should fetch between 6 and 10 million per year.

I think if the Bills can find a way to sign a C and OT in Free Agency, a quality guard can be found in the 2nd-4th rounds of the draft.

I liked Glowinski, but it's all good. I think Quinton Spain, AJ Cann, even and older guy like Matt Slauson would be huge upgrades.

 

Center and right tackle upgrades would go a long way towards improving the guards. If we somehow signed Mitch Morse and Darryl Williams, I really wouldn't mind rolling with Wyatt Teller and Ike Boettger.  

 

If you plan on drafting a rookie RT, probably need a veteran RG to put him next to. A rookie center should be surrounded by more veteran players. 

 

Lot's of ways to upgrade the offensive line.

No biggie.  Colts have a ton of cap space and their GM is smart enough to hold onto his O line guys.  Look more to teams that have impending cap issues for FAs.

Booo....oh well on to the next guy, I know I liked AJ Cann coming out of college yet not followed how well he's played for the Jaguars.

Realistically I'm not sure Saffold doesn't follow suit and re-sign with LA - Spain or Foster may become available, but look for more teams to try and re-sign these guys. Beauty of FA - expectations and reality...but agreed, I was initially up on Glowinski, but can see how he might standout more in a bad way in our OL versus the Colts.

Eh he wasn't someone I wanted. I expected him to get overpaid, that is actually a pretty fair deal for what he offers but I wouldn't have paid more than that.

Mark Glowinski, free agent guard for Indianapolis, who has been mentioned as a possible pickup for the Bills, is no longer a free agent.  As per One Bills Live, he has signed a three year extension with Indianapolis.  No link.  Oops - missed Yolo's thread on the same subgect.  Mods - please delete or merge.

Great points on the cost of OL positions.

The Bills ended the season with the 5 starters on the OL making a combined 8.2 million.

Glowinski (a tick above an average guard at best) is getting 6 million a year by himself.

 

I just say this in anticipation of Beane signing a couple of FA OL players and a whole bunch of posters saying he overpaid.

On the other hand, Beane can't get all his OL players in FA, he has to combine vets and rookie contract guys to do it right.

Might? He did. On a bad Seattle line he looked pure trash and was cut.

Every year, without fail: If we DON'T sign quality players, people complain that the GM is sitting on his hands and doing nothing. If we DO sign quality players but overpay a bit to do it (because, ya know...that's how free agency works, especially when you're trying to lure players to a bad weather city that hasn't won in 20 years), people cry "WE OVERPAID!". Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Saffold could certainly re-sign.  The guard that's almost certain to hit the market is Foster, and I think he'd be a great target for lesser money.

 

The position I think will be the toughest to fill is center; have to figure Paradis re-signs in Denver, which means it's basically down to Morse as the only established starter on the market.  I almost wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to take a shot at a RFA like Boehm or Finney, knowing that Bodine would be the team's worst-case scenario as a starter.

Overpay.  Do it.  In 2 years, it won't look like overpaying...plus, this team has very few (if any) players that will need big-money deals in the next 2 offseasons.

I may be in the minority but I say move Teller to RG and Dion Dawkins to LG (as more mobile than Teller).  Sign a FA Right Tackle (less expensive than LT) and draft a Left Tackle.  As for C, can see them signing one and failing that, drafting one.

 

Glowinski is strictly a RG so contract term and total $$ are less.  For Bills, I feel Teller is better option.

Good almost never does a guard change teams and get better on the new team.

 

I mean big time FA guards.

Man, I know nothing about o linemen. I never heard of him.  We need to build an oline but I’ll be honest. O line talk is so boring. But thank you to the posters who know what they are talking about.

 

my amateur opinion is get o linemen who are smart, tough, and mobile.  No slow, soft, dummies need apply.
