Ziggy Ansah to visit bills

Recommended Posts

ZIGGY-768x435.png

 

Ansah’s ability doesn’t stop with his pass-rushing prowess. He has displayed his run-stopping ability, as he’s earned a 69.0-plus run-defense grade in four of his six seasons.

 

The edge defender’s most prolific season occurred in 2014 when he caused 64 quarterback pressures (T-8th) and earned an 82.5 overall grade (6th).

 

Ansah will have to turn back the clock following an injury-riddled year where he earned a 74.5 defense grade, but there may not be a surplus of suitors with the pass-rusher-heavy class entering the NFL Draft this year.

According to whom? Because the last report was his contract offers were in the 11-12M range.

There are reports that are putting it in the 11 to 12 mil a year range.  Bell wanted 15.  He hasnt signed yet because no one has got to his number.

Really want this guy opposite Hughes. Completes the defense. Then possibly add Ed Oliver in the draft.

$14 Mil a year is a little expensive for him in my view...

 

2 years max with no guaranteed in the second I hope so its easy to move on if he isn't working out......

Thanks. I forgot that you can’t make visits during the tampering period.

1. Hughes is better, so unless they plan on moving Hughes or Ansah to LE, this makes no sense.

2. Ansah isn't appreciably better than either Shaq or Murphy at this point anyways, so why bother?

3. Clowney is MUCH better than Ansah. Get real.

4. We still need someone to replace Kyle. I want Ed Oliver if possible.

How does it make no sense to have two pass rushers?

 

Ansah had 4 sacks in 2 games started due to injury last year. Lawson and Murphy had 8 combined

 

Clowney has never had more than 10 sacks in a year. Ansah has done it twice and wont cost a pick.

 

 

GreggTX has logic flaws

So you think Ansah came into the league a year older thank Lorax and Gore? Interesting.

It's a joke first of all.  Ironically, both gore and Alexander came out of the same draft class and are born in the same month.  Thank you for spurring me to look it up.  To answer the question  Ansah is older by 3 months.

Clowney is also only 26 still, and Ansah is... 30 something? Nobody seems quite sure about that.

 

The injury concerns seem a little overblown however, last year was an issue, but Ziggy is one year removed from a 12 sack season, and last year was the first season he played fewer than 13 games.

If the price wasn’t egregious, I would prefer Clowney, but if Ansah can be had on a reasonable deal (nothing longer than 3 years with an out after 1-2) it would still be a great move to solidify the pass rush and provides more flexibility on draft day.

I have a feeling this will be the final “big” free agent contract the Bills dish out this year.

I think no matter where this player lands, he will propose a prove it one year contract and bet on himself.  With a healthy, productive season, he's likely one of the top five free agents in 2020 Free Agency.

Ziggy fits McDermotts scheme better than Hughes.  Hughes is a speed rusher made for a wide 9 defense. Ziggy is more of a power rusher better suited for McDermotts scheme. If we land ziggy Hughes will be traded,  maybe kc,Oakland, or green bay.  Buckle up butter cup it's about to get interesting.

I'm hoping for Ziggy Ansah and Darryl Williams to round out FA as big signings.

This is a wild take.  

 

Hughes has been stellar in McDermotts scheme. Heck, maybe he would be better in a different scheme, but in this one he has still been awesome.  Why in the world would we trade our best DE because we bring in another, less talented DE?

Can you imagine that D-line? That would hopefully settle the defense for a few years, and let us truly take BPA every year. (Assuming Allen continues to grow)
