Wait a sec, has no one said it yet?  Can I really be the first?!  


Okay, okay.  Calm down, you can do this.....

 

 

RALPH IS CHEAP!

 

 Ralph Wilson has given large amounts of his estate to charity so let's put this joke to rest.

Good move for the Bills and the fact that he didn't even try to hit free-agency says that he ...

 

... wait for it ...

 

 

 

 

... trusts the process.

Excellent news. Jerry is the cornerstone of this defense.

After factoring in draft picks, they're about $20M under. Once in-season extensions/signings are accounted, you can probably figure that they'll roll $10M over into 2020. If the cap goes up by $10M from '19 to '20, then you're looking at around $80M in cap space once rollover money and new contracts from 2019 are factored into the equation.

 

Knock off $10M each for 2020 draft picks and 2020 in-season contract work, and the team will have about $60M to spend on free agent contracts.  Plenty of room to get a premium WR, premium EDGE rusher, and a CB2 while leaving room to fill secondary needs.

 

This is all not factoring in releasing some roster bubble guys, keeping some UDFAs, etc.  

 

This is how much we save by cutting any of these guys.  You have to bring up any of the guys who get paid like 500k or less when factoring it in as we have 27 mil in cap space per the top 51.  https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/buffalo-bills/cap/

 

Dimarco 1.1
Waddle 1.6
Kevin johnson 2.3
Bodine 2.3
Stanford 1.4
and the big one would be shady - that'd save 6.3 if we felt he wasn't going to help the team this year (i don't think there's a reason to cut him unless the new guys outplay him)

Are we allowed to say nice things about Whaley any more?  That was the best trade in favor of the Bills - it was an absolute steal!

Yes we are but I think Nix was the GM when that trade was made (not to say Whaley wasn’t involved, he probably made the trade while Buddy was asleep)

I like this a lot.  Hughes is not the flashy edge rusher we hoped he would be, the guy who makes highlight reels.  He is better.  

 

I think this has happened because he is one of those guys who really fits what McD is trying to do.  He has calmed down, doesn't take so many foolish penalries, doesn't lose gap control like he used to.  Now he is consistently effective.  Good, disciplined every play.  

 

Typical McD player.  Maybe a little undersized but quick smart and effective.  Like Poyer, Milano.

No worry whatsoever.  No angst.  Just think hes an average player who has hurt Bills more times than he has helped.  Go Bills!

this guy just doesn't get it.

Providing he stays healthy, and I see no reason why he wouldn't that is a hell of a bargain for a high-caliber pass-rusher.

A fair amount of Pass rusher's tend to continue to play well into their 30s though.  It's not like running backs or WRs where speed is king.  

 

But some don't. Orakpo and Mario Williams are the two recent examples that immediately spring to mind. The guys like Peppers and Freeney who went on longer did transition at about 32 from every down starters to more situational types. And as I say it tends to happen quicker. I think backs and receivers there is more of a gradual slowing. When pass rushers hit the wall I feel it tends to be an immediate cliff which is why I see Hughes as a year to year proposition at this stage.

There, a preemptive post ought to knock the nattering nabobs of negativism off their games.

ScottLaw will be upset that you’ve preempted his take.

It depends on the guy's style.  Highest has changed his style of play.  He is effective by being a smart, consistently good player.  He gets his sacks when the opportunity arises.  He doesn't rely on superior physical skills to beat people.  He plays the system and executes when ha has the opportunity.  That style leads to longer careers.

11 million per year for a guy who is still getting it done even withour big sack numbers is a huge win for the Bills!

Excellent move! Money well spent. A great price for Hughes. Now just let Hughes and Oliver wreck shop together! Can’t wait!
