Cuts to add an additional 6 Million

Recommended Posts

Here are some easy cuts to add $6,000,000 to our $78,750,000 in cap space

 

Chris Ivory

Vlad Ducasse

Punter 

Cam Phillips

Denzel Rice

 

These obvious moves would bring our cap space to $85,000,000.

 

That additional space is going to be very helpful.

Is there some reason to believe we are going to spend so much of that money that we need to find an additional 6 million to make it work? 

 

People who are expecting a wild off season are going to be sorely disappointed.  They aren't going to go through what they went through to waste the entire cap this year.  To do so would require numerous multiple year contracts, which would drain the salary pool for years to come.

What help will cutting 5 guys to free up that extra 6m provide compared to the original $79m?

I'd add as follows

 

Darryl Williams 5 years $55,000,000

Jordan Phillips 3 years - $10,000,000

Mitch Morse 4 years - $32,000,000

Jesse James 4 years - $24,000,000

So you will cut Cam Phillips a rookie at the league minimum to make cap space?  They aren't going to do that.

Is he going to make the 2019 team or be a hot signing by another team.  No

 

If thats the case why not

You do realize they are not going to come close to spending the 79 m they have now? We don't want to be in cap hell in two years.

Ivory can and should be replaced with a back such as TJ Yeldon, Tevan Coleman and obviously a draft pick

Because you need players.  Potential might be  all he has but you can't cut every player that won't be a starter and replace them with high priced free agents

Why makes cuts in the middle of a Sabres game?

Honestly if we gave as much time to Foster as you are willing to give Cam Phillips, Foster would have already been gone

There’s a lot of holes to fill already. Why create more? 

What makes people think they are going on some huge spending spree? They may target a couple of the top lineman, but they aren’t spending all that money. They will spend to get to the minimum cap level and roll more over for next season. Beane has said repeatedly they are not building this team via free agency but through drafting good.

I agree with part of this and completely disagree with the other.

 

There is absolutely no reason they need an additional 6 million in cap space. It's going to be difficult to spend the money they have. That being said, at what point do they spend the money? Who on the roster are you concerned about paying? Edmunds and Allen in 4 years? White in 3 years? The objective is to play to the cap as much as possible, not stockpile money for some future date. I think they're under some pressure to win this season and I would be surprised if they didn't make some moves you don't expect them to make. They don't have eternity to make this thing work.

I don’t want Ducasse as a starter but he’s good depth and salary is reasonable. I’d keep him. Others are right. The extra $6m won’t make a difference. They aren’t spending all that money. Cut the punter sure, but not to save the money, he just stinks. Gonna have to spend the same to replace him.

Here is what I suggest they add in Free Agency

 

RT - Darryl Williams - 5 years - $55,000,000

C - Matt Morse - 4 years - $32,000,000

DT - Sheldon Richardson - 3 years $30,000,000

TE - Jesse James - 4 years - $24,000,000

DT - Jordan Phillips - 3 years - $10,000,000

RB- Tevan Coleman - 3 years - $15,000,000

 

Total FY 2019 Cap Space - $43,000,000, leaves $42,000,000 left

 

Now draft needs:

 

WR 

TE

OG

RB

S

 

Would love to add 

 

DK Metcalf or Hakeem Butler

TJ Hockenson or Irv Smith

Either Wisconsin OG

Hendorson or Love at RB

A LB/S hybrid 

 

That gives the Bills a lot to build with

I'm hoping they have a stealth campaign to make a run at Clowney in addition to getting D. Williams and Morse or Paradis at center.

I am missing the analytics where cutting a cheap player to be replaced by another cheap player helps the cap.

 

Cut Ducasse because of his performance, not salary cap.  For the others, keep them until you find someone better.

Here's some more cuts:

Random player #1

Random player #2

Random practice squad player #3.

 

 

"Punter."  You're an idiot.
