Cap Space

According to over the cap we still have 30M in space right now.  We could use another WR, DE and maybe CB.  

 

Not to jump ahead but did we not add a DE because Ziggy is still in play.  We have the cap room.

you spend about$10 on the draft - so it is about 20ish

Let's focus on Free Agents and get some prospects in here and see what they can do.

Who are you binning off to make room for Ansah? Hughes, murphy, shaq, and now harold are your 4. Yarborough is unlikely to make it. Did we sign Harold just to cut him? Nah. I think they moved on from Ansah. 

 

Also think we have our 5 at CB and no one worth a damn out there at WR.

Fans are hungry... Who we cutting trying to add receivers and ends?? This is a tough team to crack now. Not sure what I’m missing but the squad looks pretty impressive to me.

I wouldn't mind seeing Buffalo roll that cap space over to next year so that they can be big players in FA again while still having enough money to re-sign their own FAs.  

 

If they do spend it this year though I'd want them to spend it on a top DE or WR.  They already got their QB, LT, DT, & CB.  DE opposite Hughes and #1WR are the only two "franchise" positions this team still needs (if Josh Allen pans out at QB)  Other than that any positions the Bills need next year should be easy to find in the draft or FA.

This is correct. Shoulder is healing, in good shape, needs to work it back to health

Until the season starts, its top 51, so half of their picks won't count, and the ones that do, will push people off making about $650k. Bottom line, it's about $4 mil.

Don't forget Lorax . He was a top 10 edge rusher according to PFF! I see him getting even more opportunities at DE this year . Plus we just added Oliver who now gives us a Legit rusher up the middle. 

I think pressure up the middle is more important to this team than the edge. Kyle def lost a step last year , so we really didn't have that pressure from DT last year. That'll change with Oliver! I also see Shaq being kicked inside alot more , as the year went on he was being kicked inside alot more.

You realize you’re talking about Eli Harold right?  The same Eli Harold that........I forgot.  The Eli Harold that hasn’t done anything other than being touted out of college

Every one of the draftees have to displace a player already on the top 51.

That's 645k each. 

 

The total draft signing will only hit the cap by a little less than 4.5 million.

That leave Beane 26 million, and that's before guys like Vlad get axed.

Not too bad...

Edit: $8.52M overall, looks like only the top 4 will hit as of now. If that's the case and we take the 4 lowest and add the top 4 picks it is a $3,785,542 difference.

 

So that leaves us about $26.82 million under as of right now

A couple of things. We will probably see a bunch of guys realeased in the next few days so that teams can add their draft classes and UDFAs to their 90 man rosters. That said, even now Ansah isn't the only guy around. 

 

Shane Ray, Nick Perry, Sam Acho, Josh Martin, Andre Branch are all names still out there. Personally, I'd take a shot on Shane Ray. But I would really wait to see what shakes free before signing Ansah.

Let it roll any carry over to next year.

 

Then we can have another FA run next year, and stagger the contracts so everybody isn't due at the same time.

 

Not saying we can't sign anyone else right now, but let's not allow it to burn holes in our collective pocket.

Couple points:

1.) Beane's post draft presser briefly discussed Ziggy, and sounds like they are staying in touch with the agent.  Perhaps now that the draft is finished, we will see a team (hopefully us) move forward with signing him

 

2.) I think it is safe to say we are staying pat at CB.  With Johnson and Gaines signed, and Taron coming back from injury, I think we'll be ok.  Post draft presser made it sound like McDermott likes the corner out of UB, possibly for competition at nickle

 

Be nice if we could get a #1 WR, but I think that's out of the cards until 2020.  They took a swing with AB.  Just hope Beasley and Brown can stay healthy, b/c I think they have a serviceable group, just nothing spectacular.

Might be able to take care of Jerry before the season and give him his bonus this year provided there are no other big signings...

Can he play a 4-3 DE.

I'd consider Kyle Rudolph/Clowney hunting.
