So Croom and Fisher are probably not making the team is what this means. Do we keep a 4th TE in Sweeney?

 

I think it’s all but a lock that they’ll keep 4 at this point. The TE room is going to be packed at camp.

This what worries me about this regime.  They seem to have outdated ways of thinking.  It’s liek signing Star.  Good at one thing, completely worthless if teams pass.  Smith is a glorified o linemen.  Why not just keep Fisher who can fill two roles?  

Did you miss the pats running an outdated offense to a super bowl championship?

 

Defenses are getting smaller. Why not run them over?

Show some respect to the future team owner! It's the HHH plan to run the company one day!

Give him a different number.  Half the opposing coaches will be baffled...😁

They have Tom Brady.  They also had the best TE of their generation.  You don’t see the difference when you line up Gronk, who can do everything, vs Lee Smith?

Who knows how the contract is structured. I would assume Lee is here for 2019 at a minimum. If he performs they probably got him on the cheap for the remaining years.

Lee Smith has started a lot of games in this league and obviously has value to NFL teams- just not to message board posters fixated on fantasy statistics.  

Haha.  You’re right.  This might be the year he tops 80 yards in a season.  But the Raiders are definitely a team I point to as being one I want to idle myself after.  

 

Like I said, I heard he’s a great guy.  And props to him for getting checks for so long with such average talent.  But lee smith’s Are a dime a dozen.

He caught more TDs last year than Clay did in the last two years. He’s not the future at TE. He’s a vet who can block well and catch when he needs to.

Kroft

Knox

Lee are the only three I see making the team. Sweeney makes the PS and the others, like Croom and Fischer will be cut.

Wait for the details on the deal.  So far Beane has structured things very well (team friendly), I would expect the same here.  

 

That's my take as well.   I'll wait to see how easy it is for the Bills to get out of his contract after year one--as well as the amount of any guaranteed money--before passing judgement on this signing.

 

If nothing else, he'll be a great role model in training camp for Knox, Sweeny and even Fisher...

The most questionable move Beane has pulled, imo. Dont like this at all. But I'll trust the process... for now.

Noooo, not even top 5 most questionable, IMO.

The human holding penalty returns!

 

8 holding penalties in his NFL career. If Lee is a penalty machine, that makes me a sex machine.

Yeah, yeah, he can block..  Thing is though, we don’t know how Knox & Sweeney will turn out. We have an idea about Kroft. We’re all pretty excited to be done with the oft-injured, uninspiring, costly Clay. We DO know about Smith. We -and every team he’s played for- kicked him to the curb.

There goes Croom and Fisher probably. 

 

Kroft/Lee/Knoxx.

 

Sweeney/Fisher/Croom maybe for a last spot. 

I don't see Croom going because he "can" be a weapon in the passing game....but you never know.

They are serious about the front line and protecting Josh Allen...  that is not a bad thing.
