Is there any actual buzz to this Clark trade yet or is this thread just people dreaming?  Serious question.  I’d love Clark personally.  

 

I accidentally “followed” it so got all these emails about new comments lol.  Came in thinking I’d at least see a recent link to Clark and Bills rumors and seems it’s just more what do scenarios.  

 

So curious, is there anything linking this up yet that’s recent?  Last week when I asked it was a no.

We resigned Phillips, we got Hughes and Star and Murphy and Lawson and Yarborough and Harold and H. Phillips. 

We're talking about drafting Oliver or Wilkins or Gary. On top of that we're trading for Clark. 

Just wondering? Is anybody concerned we've done nothing as far as our LB corps is concerned?

No, nickel defense is the base defense and Milano and Edmunds are perfect for that role. Both highly productive and studs. Sure grab a back up in the 5th otherwise, we’re good.

We'll know if there's smoke soon. Seattle is focused on Russ at the moment.

So nothing then and this recent activity in this thread is mostly based on the hope the Russel Wilson saga gives us an opening?  Just making sure I understood correctly

I know that the issue with Russell Wilson has to be taken care of, but I'm of the belief that if Frank Clark gets traded,it will be during the draft.

Just my opinion.

Are the Seahawks just going to give us Frank Clark for free?  You’re talking about a historically bad offensive football team using all of its premium picks on defense.  Yes, it’s great that Beane shored up the o-line, but as of right now, we have zero offensive playmakers—not a single guy that opposing defenses fear.

Again, what does what you’re saying have to do with the other guy wanting to draft Oliver and trade for Frank Clark?

 

You think that offensive help can’t be had at other spots in the draft?

 

I mean, your response is as close to abysmal as can be.

have they used all the premium picks on defense?  last I heard the draft is still about 10 days away. did you follow FA? seems a majority of those were offensive pick ups?

 

10 picks, one or two you can count on being defensive in the early rounds. hell, they may even go OL with the first pick? I trust beane, not the opinion of someone on the board who is clamoring about what they haven't done and really has no clue, just as I have no clue whether it'll be a heavy defensive draft, offensive or some of both? they may even draft a punter, who knows.

 

 

trust the process

Do you dream of rooting for an NFL team that scores 5 points per game?

If we can run the ball we will score quite easily.......

 

We literally could not run the ball at all last year....making us one dimensional

 

Relax

I do think we need more depth, but most of the time we only field two linebackers anyway. We definitely need to find a replacement for Lorenzo eventually.

 

And I believe we will expend some draft picks on linebackers.

Yes, there was new buzz tweeted by PFT last night that a trade for Clark was brewing. It was the first new post in the thread yesterday.

First, I disagree that our defense was "not very good last year."  They weren't dominant, but they were overall a very good unit that got worn down and had to compensate for a historically bad offense for most of the year.  

 

I'm actually OK with Beane using our first round pick on whoever he thinks is the best DL available there.  What I'm not OK with is burning our first two picks (plus probably another premium pick this year or next) on defense when we are completely devoid of offensive playmakers.   Go ahead and pick a DL at 9, but I want to see the next two picks used on WR, TE and/or RB.

i'm just not getting the "devoid of offensive play makers" stuff.  mcoy and gore are gonna give us a top 5 rushing attack.(whilst training a youngster or two.

brown/ beasley/ jones/duke and foster.  not to mention the oline additions.   we have a 2nd yr. qb, not tom brady.   i don't know how long you've been a fan but...

 

for years after years the bills have picked up one side of the team and the other screwed our season. i for one believe these guys are a bit smarter than that. we need to solidify the dline and get some pressure.

 

they need to stagger contracts. i expect playoffs this year but realistically believe next year will be the year where we go all in on a couple of superstars. trust the process foo!

Ummm...my preference is Ed Oliver at 9 (or Q Williams if he's somehow available), but I take issue with the bolded. The Bills defense was very good last year. Elite against the pass, and solid against the run. Not sure how you think they were not very good? 

 

With Kyle retiring, it would be nice to get a 3 technique who can rush the passer. I think that would help this defense, and potentially make them one of the best in the league. 

The defense was GOOD, but not great. They struggled getting to the QB and lack top end pass rushers. Hughes is a good player, but it's not enough. If they want to become VERY good, they need to get in the QB's mug and create more turnovers. It's really the name of the game in today's NFL. So while they are GOOD, they are aging and not great in terms of talented pass rushers, the most important aspect of a defense IMO.

 

I don't care if the pressure comes from a 3T DT or an edge. Gotta get to the QB! Losing Kyle isn't going to help.

 Milanos ?

I think Frazier and McD like pressure up the middle that allows edge guys to do just that. Come off the edge as the qb is still backpedaling quickly.

 If they have the run stuff game figured ? you gotta turn the wick up from the outside rush or stunts to consistently to dominate

As I said, draft a player in the 4th or 5th round. Why would we invest a premium pick on a back up linebacker.

He's 6'3 265 will play defensive end

Yeah, I’d think Wilson contract extension means Clark is gonna be traded.  

 

So the question becomes what draft picks do you offer if you're Buffalo (and you're willing to give Clark a new deal)?  Seattle has lost leverage...

 

This almost makes too much sense for it not to happen.  The Bills have Josh's rookie deal for another couple of years so they can absorb a big cap hit for a couple of seasons.

The Russell Wilson contract and only having 4 draft picks makes a trade of Clark the smart move.  Need players on rookie contracts.

Trade for Clark, draft Oliver, then spend every remaining draft pick on offense.

I'd swap 1st rd picks, maybe throw in a 5th rd too, that should be good enough
