Seattle would have a bigger role for him

Wording of that tweet makes it sound like it’s all but done. 

 

Not a big loss honestly, would’ve been nice depth but Ansah doesn’t seem to have the talent he once had.  Would’ve been a slight upgrade, but not the game changer that some members of this board seem to think he is.

Not in love with idea of Ziggy.  He is potentially older than advertised and not sure he will be a sack machine post injury.  At team safe price would be interested but appears not likely.

After the AB mess, Ian Rapoport will always play opposition to any Bills opportunity now.

I’m shocked he didn’t quit his job and crawl into a black hole somewhere. He probably swore vengeance to the Bills over the entire thing. Totally makes sense.

Oh man. This is a SERIOUS bad look for the Bills if he goes to Seattle. A stain on McBeane and the entire “process.”

 

Scott Law told me.

Makes sense. Seahawks have a greater need than Bills, and Ziggy will get more playing time there.

We already have one DE with chronic injuries (Murphy)...don't make the same mistake twice Beaner.

Of the teams interested in him, SEA and BUF have the room to max out a one-year prove it deal for $17M which is what he'll be looking for (and played on a tag LY).

Ansah ALWAYS has to be a “guy at the right price.” He’s also a weird fit here because he really SHOULD be on a 1 year “prove-it” deal. The Bills are fine at DE this year (obviously he’d make them better). It’s 2020 where they potentially have a big hole.

This Bills FO isn't overpaying for a player with a wonky shoulder. 

 

Recovering from shoulder surgery is tough for the average person who doesn't deliberatly drive it into large people for a living.

I do wonder if Trent’s history has made Beane think twice before taking on another injury risk,

Many posters are overrating Ansah's value. His skills have diminished considerably. He' s Trent Murphy 2.0. Let someone else overpay him and eat his dead money next year. We need top tier DE's if we're going to get to the playoffs because we have a 3rd tier QB. I'm thinking we'll trade for 1 and draft another next year and/or resign Hughes if the terms are right.

90 is both his jersey # and his Madden rating.

Interesting though that Rapsheet specifically mentions the Bills as still having interest - so i think they would take him,  but Beane likely has a set value on a player like that and he’s going to have a higher value in Seattle where they have a bigger need at the position.

I'd rather give Hughes a 2 or 3-year extension now rather than wait.  I have a feeling Hughes is going to have a monster year if the Bills generate more interior pressure

 

Ian R...will always be saddled with the Antonio Brown "Breaking News" in my book..

What you say makes sense.  Beane also seems to be very astute about not setting himself (the team) up to carry a bunch of dead money.  Seattle may be more willing to put guaranteed money on the table against a longer contract.

The Bills were brining him in to be a part of a rotation anyway, I would have liked him on a one year deal it would have added nice depth but its not a huge loss.

IMO, I thought Shaq Lawson improved quite a bit last year. If he takes his game up another step this year, he could be really good. Murphy might even be semi healthy this year too.

 

I've also been a fan of Eddie Yarborough and that other guy they signed from the Lions (Harold ?) could be in the picture this year too.

 

Ziggy would be cool but I'm not sure he's much  better than what we have
