We’ve claimed T De’Ondre Wesley off waivers and signed TE Mik’Quan Deane

Recommended Posts

This should put us over the top!  😋

 

 

Interesting that they did follow thru and get another TE.

The addition of a guy like Mik'Quan Deane -- rather than pursuing a "name" player like a Kyle Rudolph -- tells me they're fine rolling with Knox, Sweeney, and Croom until Kroft comes back healthy. Hopefully the rooks can get up to speed quickly.

There is no guarantee other than internet/talking head speculation that Vikings would be willing to trade Rudolph to Buffalo at fair price.

Poor Blake Hance. He looked so happy in his Bills press photo.

The Bills really are trying to roll people through for evaluations.  Seems like a no stone unturned scenario.

If that were the case I would have been laid much earlier in life :D

Its May. We won't know their comfort level until August.

I think it’s still to early to assume that we won’t be trading for a vet.  This guy will be cut if a move is made.  May as well take a look at him to see what he’s got. It’s not as if the dudes we cut had any chance of making the team.  It’s only been a few days since Kroft went out.

Mik'Quan Deane sounds like an H-back type.  He's the smallest and lightest of Buffalo's tight ends.  If he gets stronger and can block, I wonder if he could make DiMarco expendable

Some men's bars hang lower than others.  Just saying.

He's best look into short-term housing at an local hotel.    A cup of Tim Horton's might be the length of time he's here...

Didn't we have Wesley last year? 

 

Yep.   He's living the dream....

 

"Wesley, 26, was on Buffalo’s practice squad in 2017 and re-signed for the 2018 offseason. He was assigned to the Bills practice squad again at the start of the 2018 season, but was released in mid-September.  He spent the second half of the 2018 campaign on the practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts and was re-signed for the 2019 offseason. Wesley however, was just released by the club on Tuesday.

 

A former undrafted rookie signing of the Baltimore Ravens in 2015, Wesley appeared in six career games for the Ravens, but has not seen regular season action since."

Go to link in Bills announcement.  Was here on PS 2017 and beginning of last year. Went to Colts where Bobbie Johnson was Asst O Line coach last year. Small world.

I’m concerned about Beane feeling the need to sign a tackle. Has Ford looked that bad?

Or they don't want to give up compensation and cap space for Rudolph and would rather take the risk with what they have. 

 

At some point parting ways with future draft picks for established veterans isn't a bad idea, IMO..... especially when you need to see results on the field.

Good catch.  Knows his system so he won't need extra instructions.  Probably makes for a good camp body.

They got rid of a tackle and signed another.  Just some roster churn after first OTAs.
