Remaining Free Agents - Tracking and Want List

Recommended Posts

Here are some of the bigger name remaining free agents. Highlighting ones that the Bills could use. What are your wants?

 

 

Ansah: Bills talking to do. Would be a good signing at right price (obviously)

Houston: Ansah or Houston?

Callahan: Do we need one more CB?

Suh: Need another DT. On the cheaps yes; Big $ that will be a no. 

Berry: Unlikely

Jernigan: Younger DT. Good pick up at right price. 

Matthews: Blah, seen better days. 

Dennard: Slot corner - maybe?

Cook: Not bad idea unless going TE in draft. Caught 68 passes last year. 

Barron: Unlikely

Darby: Maybe, could use him.

Crowell: Rather go RB in draft

Yeldon: Same as above on RB

Breeland: Another CB option

Cobb: Could maybe see it. Competition with the other similar guys we have brought in. Cut whoever loses out.

Other than Jared cook I don’t see many of those guys being a fit. Mathews and Houston I can’t see playing end, and we don’t blitz the linebackers much we ask them to cover a ton which are not strengths of those 2. Ansah I’m guessing if he’s healthy and they wanted him at his asking price would have already been signed. I can’t see them doing much else unless it’s a huge bargain price

I would REALLY like another OLB that can split time with Lorenzo Alexander (and take over next year)...

Anthony Barr was #1 on my list, but I knew that was a long-shot.


Shaq Barrett would have been a really nice addition, but he just signed for cheap.

Shane Ray could learn a lot from Lorenzo Alexander, and like Kevin Johnson he would be a former 1st round reclamation project for McDermott.

After that, all that is left is Thomas Davis...he would add great leadership, but would only be a one-year stop-gap.

(Jake Ryan and Brandon Marshall are ILB who could potentially play OLB...and Zach Brown has the speed to play OLB, but I'm not sure he's ever played there.)


Maybe they draft a young OLB, I don't have much faith in Julian Stanford or Deon Lacey. (Unless Corey Thompson forces his way onto the team.)

I'd also like them to look into Randall Cobb on a cheap, incentive-laden deal...same with a pass-catching TE like Eifert or Seferian-Jenkins.

Thomas Davis signed with the Chargers and Zach Brown has been OLB his entire career so not sure what you’re getting at there.

Which is exactly what I said...but I'm getting at the fact that the Bills desperately need another capable OLB.

Hell, they need another ILB too.

If one of their starters go down, they have nobody capable of starting for them.

Thanks, didn't see it.

i still think we sign Ziggy

The Saints signed Mario Edwards...maybe that means they're out on Ansah.

Can't get everything in free agency. There are some good ones in the draft.

Would most likely be DEs in our scheme or like Zo.

I know he doesn't really fit our scheme, he is older and isn't the player he once was....but I would still like to sign Clay Matthews if the price was right lol  It would just be cool to have him for about 2 years as a Bill.

Shaq Barrett was one guy I would have liked to get.

 

We have zero depth at LB.

Cassius Marsh just got released from the Niners. I always kind of liked his game, and he can rush the passer. Could be similar to Lorax as a guy who can play an edge and off the ball. He's also excellent on special teams. Best part about him is he hates the Patriots and bad mouthed them on his way out of town.

I'd love to get Suh, he can still rag doll OLinemen and is great against the run.  But I suspect he won't come much less than $14M/year, so that's probably a no.

Agreed.........he was pretty good at "defending every blade of grass" in that Seattle D.........dude played hard.
