I expect Jerry to have a good season with the middle of our DL now providing pass rush pressure.....Meatball god bless him was not the player he had been in years passed.....you get young Meatball like pressure and you will have Havoc at the LOS

I won't speak for Badol, but there's a pretty big difference between extending Eric Wood with a year left on his deal and Jerry Hughes.

 

Why? Well, for one, the team had just matched a RFA offer sheet for Wood's backup, Ryan Groy, because they were happy with his play as a starter, and he was presumably set to take over after the 2017 season. Hughes, on the other hand, is now one of only 2 EDGE rushers under contract for the 2020 season.  The other is Murphy, who has missed a total of 19 games in the past 2 seasons and was generally underwhelming as a pass rusher last year.

 

For another, Wood was 31 years old as an offensive lineman and coming off a broken leg. Hughes is 30 and has never missed a game in 6 seasons with the team.

 

 

Agreed.......and to expand on that there are a number of other key differences, IMO.

 

 Positionally edge rushers are a big ticket item.   They are hard to get.   If you don't have one you can't just throw a first round pick at that problem in the draft and feel confident that it's solved.  Hughes' extension is about performance and it's 60% of top of market for an edge rusher.    Hughes isn't a finisher like Von Miller but he's very good, consistent and(as you mentioned) VERY durable and pass rushers sometimes get better at this age 

 

On the other hand,  the Bills paid Wood almost top of the center market on his extension.    It's an important position but not an edge/island and still pretty easy to fill and IMO they saved nothing over just waiting for the offseason to see if he was healthy and deciding to extend him.     That premature extension IMO was really all about buying Wood's vocal support for the process.   They tossed extra bucks at McCoy at the same time too and they in turn said the right things and/or bit their tongues all summer even as Beane was thinning out the talent base in the name of the process.

Meanwhile the Bills were not able to fill the Center position and the line fell apart without Wood.

I guess it’s only 2 years but seems like a lot of money for a guy who has had 21 sacks in his last 4 years.  Hughes is a number 2 DE who is getting paid almost like a 1.  But you have to spend your money somewhere but it seems like they are starting to overpay like the last regime that got killed for it.

I don't know what kind of memory loss you have but it wasn't a good line in 2017 under Dennison/Castillo with Glenn injured and John Miller falling off a cliff.  The Dennison system wasn't as complimentary to the existing OL talent as that of A Lynn/Roman and the performance wasn't anywhere near as good.    But it certainly fell to a worse level in 2018 without Wood, Incognito and Glenn.........not just Wood.   Incognito was asked to take a pay cut when he was at least the equal of Wood or better and Glenn was dealt.   Choices were made.   Wawrow says Beane told him they "could not afford" to address the center position more aggressively because of being saddled by the Wood contract.    Hence the Bodine signing........who actually wasn't the worst of the Bills starting OL.........I believe PFF had him as the 20 best starting center........which is mediocre, not bad.

$11.5 M a year is some margin from what elite guys are getting eg Frank Clark and Lawrence ...$20 Milion plus is the new Number 1 DE money in 2019..

This is a really good example of revising the history to fit your argument.  

 

1. Yes, 2017 was not as good as previous years, but it was miles better than last year. 

 

2. Glenn was already a non-factor by 2017 (this is a really telling example of the revisionism).  The only real loss, aside from Wood, was Incognito. But even he was obviously on the verge of a mental breakdown and really getting up there in age.  The much bigger loss was clearly Wood. Not to mention the fact that aside from LT, Center is the most important position on the line. 

 

3. I'm not sure what the Wawrow comment has to do with anything. 

 

4. PFF has no idea how to judge the offensive line.  I thought that was pretty well established after E. Wood and @AngryNFLScout vet called them out this year.

someone say PFF?

3. Jerry Hughes, Buffalo Bills – 90.6 pass-rushing grade

Jerry Hughes did anything but regress in 2018, as he earned the third-best pass-rushing grade on third down (90.6). Hughes amassed six sacks and 33 quarterback pressures on third-down passing plays which contributed towards his second-ranked win percentage (26.9%) among all NFL defenders.

A season ago, 159 defenders saw 50-plus third-down pass-rush snaps; Hughes was one of just three defenders who recorded a pass-rush productivity mark of 30.0 or higher. Hughes pressured the quarterback on a staggering 25.4% of third-down pass-rush snaps which ranked second at his position.

Yeah, the EDGE position is loaded in the 2020 free agent market.  Just off the top of my head, there's Clowney, Dupree, Ngakoue, Ingram, Ansah, Fowler, Griffen, Addison, and Beasley who are currently slated to become UFAs.  Then you get to the guys with enormous cap numbers like Von Miller, Chandler Jones, and Calais Campbell that may not be retained.

 

The Bills can definitely afford to go hard after any of the above guys, plus keep both Hughes and Murphy if they want to do so.

 

Kind of the same as the receiver position, where you'll see names like Green, Boyd, Edelman, Anderson, Cooper, Sanders, Thomas, and Hill all with expiring contracts. It makes for a great situation to go HUGE after the guy you like (say, Boyd), given that they (to borrow your phrasing) raised the floor of the position by adding Brown and Beasley.

I thought it would take a 3 year deal in the $11M-$13M a year range to get him to re-up with us.  Not too far off.   The Bills end up getting him at a really good price without having to commit 3 additional years.   Great deal

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

 

+ 1

 

No impact when needed IMO.

 

 

AND this is why the Pats are always ahead: release a player 1 year too soon more than than sign/extend a player like Hughes.

Not surprising at all.

 

One other thing to think about is that there will also be good, young-ish WRs that will be released for cap reasons. It wouldn't surprise me at all if any of Sammy Watkins, Alshon Jeffery, Allen Robinson, or Stefon Diggs were released/traded.

This is another one of those moves that raises the floor for the Bills. They did A LOT of that this year. I think of signing like Gore, Nsekhe, Long, Gaines, Kroft, etc... Hughes is a better player than those guys but the point is the Bills eliminated, a potentially, gaping hole next year. The Bills still have a need on the edge moving forward but have 1 starting edge here already (plus maybe Murphy). 

 

They can chase a star opposite him if they want (Clowney), a role player with upside (Beasley), a solid vet (Quinn), bring back their own (Lawson) or stand pat and wait for the draft. This move eliminates a need and desperation for the Bills. Great move!!

I agree with a lot of what you are saying.  I understand what you want at DE, I would say Murphy and Shaq are Good DEs though.  With that being said I would like another great DE with stronger pass rushing ability.  Maybe Shaq will prove he can do it.

Do you ever even in a positive thread where Beane is doing something right NOT take an opportunity to take a shot at Beane?

 

For christ sake
