Bills have interest in Seattle DE Frank Clark

Absolutely not on trading Hughes. That would completely defeat the purpose. Pairing both of them together would be a lethal pass rush combo 

 

Clark is a top pass rusher in the league and young. Hughes is getting old.

He is still good.....and if you trade Hughes then you have the same issue as in past where we dont have TWO good pass rushers and one of them gets doubled

Clark is more productive, but the argument could be made that a 1 for 1 trade is stagnant, not forward progress. I would prefer to have Hughes and Clark together!

Agreed. Just saying if it was an trade of players +pick, it still might be worth it. Clark is very good and ascending.

We FN traded 2 1st round picks for Sammy Watkins when we could’ve just drafted hometown guy. Way to go!

I have "interest" in Rachel Bush. Not gonna do me any more good than the Bills having "interest" in Frank Clark, I'm afraid.

Do you really give up high picks for defensive players?

 

How often does that happen.

 

McD has used 2 first round picks on defense in 2 drafts.

Im not talking about drafts.....I mean for veteran players

 

For some reason offense always seems to cost more then defense

Considering the Seahawks hold the 21'st pick and Clark is a BEAST at the most important defensive position, I'm in for a 1st round swap.

 

Pass rushers are premium and we've got to add one. Allocate all other resources to offense, but we gotta solidify the D with a top flight young pass rusher.

Well a swap is what I would imagine - but that would put us at 21 if it's a true 2019 swap. Not a bad place to be all said and done considering I'm more inclined to favor a trade down scenario from 9, but if you're looking for DL at 21 not sure Ferrell or Sweat are there, more likely Sweat if at all.

But if we were to acquire Clark, DL isn't a priority anymore. We'd still have a great shot at landing Hock or one of the many receivers behind Metcalf.

It's not as common, but pass rushers typically garner first rounders. 

Kevin Carter

Jared Allen

John Abraham

Richard Seymour

Mack (two firsts)

 

 

Revis was traded for a first, I know hes not a pass rusher.

I’m starting to wonder how much “win now” pressure is on at OBD. I think the draft and develop approach is best but with the rumors flying around it seems the timeline is more now than later.

 

I don’t care if Beane and McD win 3 games this season. Let them have 2020 at a minimum.

For sure - I'm not saying I would spend the 21st on a DL pick - that was more in response to the hypothetical situation being discussed. But I would very much consider our BPA of what OL/WR are on the board at 21.

 

Still not as up on TE in the 1st as many others here, but I would rather be sitting at 21 w/ Clark if we can.

For sure. Perhaps I misunderstood your initial point. Clark is a proven commodity and is just 25 years old. Fills a major need so we can really focus on offense. There would be a ton of guys that fit our needs and would be very close to BPA at 21 that are not worthy of the 9th pick.

Yes, he was tagged.  I wonder if Seattle tagged him in order to "buy" some time to trade him.

 

They want to work out a LTD with him.  He’s open to playing under the tag as well.  Sadly, he’s going nowhere.

Not only that, but they seem to have put character concerns in the rear view

Is there even anything out there saying the Seahawks even are interested in trading him?

This would be a good starting point! My first thought was: WHY would they? Especially at a “fair” price? Maybe I’m missing something....

What would get me rull excited is if this goes down, we keep our second round, we're sitting at 21 w/ Clark and our second - I wouldn't put it past Beane to package our late round picks to move up again into the 2nd or 3rd with an added pick, and all the options that would provide us...things my brain does before 3/13 and while reading this board

I feel like based on what I'm reading, this is a pipedream. It's the offseason though, so all we can do is speculate!

Yes sir!  If nothing else, Beane and McDermott know how to build a defense.

 

A swap of picks and a mid rounder should do it, being the Bills will have to pony up on a monster deal, to boot.

Haven’t had a chance to read about this yet, but would be a great acquisition if they can swing it.

Is Clarke going to be Mack?   I didnt say it NEVER happens.....just that it is rare.

 

Mack wreaked havoc this year, for sure, but Clarke logged 1 more sack than him (13.5).  25 years old.
