You sure about that? This won't be an issue until 2021, but I wouldn't be surprised if Milano got a 9mm deal. Guys who can cover/make plays at that position are in high demand. He was arguably the Bills best defender in 2018.

I don't know why, I like Milano,  but for some reason not totally sold that he is anything special. He's above average much of the time, but not always.  Just can't read him well I guess.

I'm a big believer. If he continues to make plays the way he has, I think he'll be in for a nice payday. That would be a good problem to have 2 years from now. He just seems to be one of those guys that has a knack for big plays. TFL's, FF's, INT's. We'll see if he can keep it up.

Gotta spend some money and this would let us use a draft pick somewhere else.  If his medical checks out I’m good with him. If we can get paradis too look out I’m buying drinks

Don't forget the name OT LaAdrian Waddle Has ties to Daboll in New England and both of our new offensive line coaches. He infact started in Detroit though he may not be upgrade to Jordan Mills but should be cheaper or maybe better depth than what we have now.

 

 

The league needs a YoAdrian Something.   Missed opportunity by his mom.

 

Bills should also pick up Squally Canada in UDFA.

He looked shocking at LG.

 

He is a good LT. Keep him there.

 

Let's not try and break the 1 bit of our O line that's doesn't need fixing

 

It can't get any worse. I am all for lining up the best 5 regardless of where they played last year.

Why would you move Dawkins to a position he is bad at?

You clearly are in the minority, Dawkins killed it in the brief time he was at LG. Maybe stay up on the mountain.

Also depends who is playing next to him. If you have a pro bowl T or C next to him how bad would he look. I will leave it to the OL coach to put these guys in the best spots for the team. If you can find upgrade at LT, I have no problem moving Dawkins somewhere else. If not and he is the best option then let him continue to play LT.

Leave Dawkins at LT. Whenever they have tried in any other position he was terrible

 

Well, he played guard in college, was projected to be an NFL guard, started at RT but sort of got LT by default because of Cordy.

 

Coaches have said they'll look at it, to me he's the perfect guard because of his freakish strength and anchor, which is why I'm betting that drafting a LT is happening 1st or second round.  He's fast enough to pull too.

 

Plus he can catch the rock, in case we need a backup TE or something woot woot.  still my favorite play of the year....

He didn't. He was terrible.

That is stiffer than I imagined. Maybe 6-7 mill per year. 

 

6 or 7 Mill would be a good deal add in some playing time incentives which could motivate him even more but he would be a upgrade for sure .

Dawkins started all of his games at left tackle for Temple. He played a game or two at RT his freshmen year. But he was a full time three year starter at left tackle. He's a converted defensive lineman and so I think his game still needs some refinement. I think the Dawkins to guard thing comes from Mike Mayock's comments during the draft. I think he is fine at left tackle. He's got super long arms and great feet, his punch is inconsistent, but I would hope that would come with more work.

But a 9mm deal sounds like it won't cost too much, even if the give him a top of the line model.

Dreaming.  10 million or more per season he’ll get.

I still think moving Deon to LG and drafting a LT in the first (and signing Daryl Williams to play RT) might be the best thing they can do for this team......then start drafting offensive threats from the 2nd round on.

 

In the little time we have seen Dawkins at LG.....he was impressive.

If he was healthy we'd probably be looking north of $12 million.

I understand the sentiment. I want to see what he can do now that Juan Castillo is gone. I thought he played really well despite some terrible plays here and there. I think that pretty much any tackle is better off inside, but I'm not moving him unless I am absolutely sure he can't be a left tackle in this league. I do not believe that any rookie in this draft can come in and be a better left tackle than Dawkins is, so I feel like it would be a waste of a top ten pick. If you are drafting Tyron Smith, that is whole different story. I think you give him one more year to see if it all comes together.

I think the time for ‘let’s wait and see’ is over.. This team needs to start winning games

That's just unrealistic. There are too many young developing players. It's still going to be a wait and see no matter what you do. I expect improvement but they are still in wait in see mode. My point is that people want to move Dawkins just to move him. He has not been terrible and there is no one in the draft who will come in day 1 and be better. Moving him in to guard is just creating a massive hole at left tackle, which then forces you to draft for need.

I think the time has come and gone for bargain shopping as well......

 

The last 2 years of the Beane/McDermott era have cumulated to this offseason

 

- We cut salary and players for draft picks

- We got rid of dead cap crap sandwich

 

Now we need players.....and we need to start winning.....and that all start on the O and D lines

You can't talk to this guy John. I think he's Dawkins agent to be quite honest.

Yeah we've been having Daryl Williams discussions since pre-season. Taylor Moton capitalized with the Williams injury and he's now expendable. Would love to sign him and not worry about the RT position for a while.
