I think Duke Williams stays because he is the only "big" receiver and may carve out a niche as the red-zone-go-up-and-get-it guy.  I think McKenzie will be the odd man out and Ray Ray would be next on the chopping block. 

 

 

I agree. Ray Ray and McKenzie are as good as gone now IMO. Duke gets the last spot unless they draft another big body WR, but it is likely not a priority at this point.

Very exciting to get an all pro to field kicks and punts. I’m always so nervous either not having a stud catching or having a regular starter get hurt

When you look at the highlights, you see some very creative blocking schemes for the return team, something I never saw with the Bills last year.

Another reason the coach is gone

I’m not banking on Duke Williams. I could see him being practice squad player. Camp will be fun to watch this year. Lots of competition at most positions.

Sean took a team that no business being in the playoffs to 9-7 and did sneak into the playoffs.

 

He is superb at putting avg defensive players and making them play as a whole unit.

 

McKelvin and McGahee

 

who is a WR/CB with a Mc?

 

Never mind we have Roberts.

He took a team with Tyrod Taylor as its starting QB to the playoffs. And don't forget. Mcdermott and Beane really are a team. They work together well and make each other better.

Great move!  Holy shi!.  Going into FA I thought we had holes at C, G, T, TE, WR, CB, Edge, and KR-if we sign Ziggy- Beane would cover each one of those!  Never could I see us adding so much talent pre-draft.  Now we truly can go BPA.  Kudos Beane!

Thats what he said he was gonna do.

Love it!

This dude had almost 1200 kick return yards last season! 1,174 to be exact! 

 

averaged almost 30yds per return, he was top 3 in both kick and punt return, scored on 2 returns, was named to the pro bowl + named all-pro.

 

He was a big factor in the jets having the #1 ranked special teams unit last season. I can’t believe they let him walk...

Wow. That's vvery impressive. Murphy had 13 returns and led the team with 24.9 yards per . No player had over 10 yards per punt! 

 

As a team, we had ZERO punt/kickoff returns!

This is a helluva mood to get a guy that consistently produces and he instantly improves both units. Kick/punt TD or inside the red zone are potentially game and momentum changing plays. If you can get 5+ for the season , that could have a huge impact on your final record

This addition makes our team much better from last year. I'm betting he plays some WR for us too. 

 

Bombs away!

All he has to do is make one key return that leads to a win and he'll have justified his signing

Yeah this is a great move. The guy has been excellent for a few years and maybe we might actually get a return at some point, especially with our new special teams coach. Last return I remeber was Terrence McGee.

C.J. Spiller did a good job too. But yes, been way too long...

Mckelvin housed 3 punts combined in 11/12

 

People forget how dangerous of a returner Mckelvin was because of the stupid fumbles he would have every once in awhile. Another guy I loved and could take it to the house at any time was Roscoe Parish. He was so tiny and quick in space. Perfect for punt returns.

Good addition - our returners were not good a year ago.  We were forced to use Hyde as a Punt catcher at times last year.  We were middle of the road to straight up bad last year at kickoff and punt returns. Returner helps special teams for sure - hopefully Hauschka can get back to form.  

 

Punter should still be looked at - Schmidt and Darr were awful, and Bojorquez was pretty inconsistent.
