D'haquille aka Duke Williams, Bills' newest WR better than any draft prospect

From the article, Hervey was the Eskimos former GM and current BC GM. Stafford is the current Eskimos WR.

 

Question is how can a GM be a lockerroom cancer? Strange situation all around.

Easy for the big boss to cause issues. Even unintentionally if you talk about a coach or player it can quickly cause a divide if you aren’t smart/measured in comments

You forgot Coleman who Bills got for a 7th round pick assuming contract and then cut.

In addition A Boldin...signed then retired rather than play.

 

The argument that gambles dont really matter or this guy was cheap so who cares doesnt hold water. It is all part of the roster building process. The team expects a contribution from that player so either does not sign another player or spends the saved money elsewhere etc. The plan did not work regardless of the money associated. That is a failed attempt to fill the position with the guys they expected could do it.

It does matter because at the time the Bills were cap hurting.  The Bills needed to absorb cap hit.

And when your cap hurting you need to make even better decisions not worse. Such as wasting a few million on a WR you cut a week later, as just one example.

Agree which is why I cited Coleman example but I blame WR coach in this case.

That didn't matter at all since 2018 was about getting rid of the dead cap... So a few million was really nothing. Also you never know if they will make it so take the chance for cheap money in a year you are creating all of this dead cap.

 

 

So it was a very good choice to begin with just the player didn't do his part.

Lets also shun the patriots for also trying to do the same with the player

This is falso

 

Last year was never about biulding a team that would win that year

You can take chances on high ceiling low risk players/low money players

 

I have no problem with the swing

i get your point. but that also waste Coaching time and investing as a team build.
at that point in time i would have rather they found someone who could and would participate. and perhaps contribute immediately and longer term.
 Like the guy with the migraines. High ceiling low floor

Calculated risk.

 

They didn’t have cap to get a known good quantity so took a chance. 

 

Its just good business
