Cian Fahey: Robert Foster looks like odd man out at WR, Teams should try to trade for him

Recommended Posts

Foster is playing on a rookie free agent contract that pays him $750K.  Even for a 3rd or 4th WR that's an inexpensive depth player.  He came on strong ending the season, showed good chemistry with Allen, and looks to have a lot more upside.  From a roster management perspective and given a 16 game schedule where injuries and circumstances can change things quickly trading him makes zero sense.  Even less sense than the argument for trading him made by the blogger.  And when did it become a problem that the Bills have  too many 'good' WR's?

Foster isn’t going anywhere- just more crap journalism during the lull

 

Well said.  Sure let’s get rid of these deep threat we had at the end of last year.

It’s a troll take no one believes that BS. Got me. I clicked on his Twitter. Scrolled for a minute, he has a selfie in a Lebron Jersey and is talking about shaving his head and coloring his hair. Wheeeeeeeeeee 

 

 

Ok, I’m not up on all this fad dressing crap, but I can’t comprehend shaving my head and still coloring my hair. Unless... nevermind.

 

Ridiculous take. Among the League leaders in yrds per catch, golden ‘wheels’, has a history with our 2year QB and is cheap. I saw this tweet yesterday and didn’t give it a 2nd thought.

 

i WOULD, however, listen to a 1st Round trade inquiry..

Cian Fahey should be traded for whatever his employer can get.

Fosters still a decent risk and it miiiight be a chance to kick in value at his highest point if you aren’t sure of him. 

 

I do think that he’s a much better candidate for a player swap than a draft pick though. Even that’s tough though. Does a team like KC maybe take a shot at him being their deep threat and what type of immediate talent do you have to get back as a GM to risk the possibility of foster exploding there?  A lot has to line up to even start the discussion

Chiefs are probably going to get Hill back after four games and they drafted Mecole Hardman in round 2, just in case. I doubt they’re in the market for Foster, but as good teams know, you can never have too many offensive weapons.

Honestly, it was just an easy example without rummaging through 31 rosters- not a true call to it being the best spot possible. Even if they get him back for most of this year he’d be high risk to resign so it was an easy throwaway example that everyone would be at least surface level familiar with.

Listen to offers, but don't give him away cheaply. We know Brown's ceiling is average despite elite speed. We don't know Foster's ceiling and his top speed is nearly as good as Brown's. It would not surprise me to see Jones and Foster starting outside with Beasley in the slot.

Robert Foster has to be worth at least two 1st rounders by now, right?

 

I'm not sure you even listen to offers, unless a team is at least offering a 1st rounder.  Even then, you have a kid who showed great promise, who is cheap, and who the Bills have for another 3 years.  Brown and Beasley are at best around for a year or two and finding good WR's isn't that easy.

At any given time, 3 of these guys could be injured.  Be deep dumb to trade him.

This dude is a complete moron, consistently has the sh*ttiest takes and cries like a toddler anytime someone calls him out. I'm pretty sure he doesn't actually buy half the crap he spews, just has to get his turd name out there.

Exactly! Plus he was in the top 5 of receivers the last 6 games of the season.

So whose trading what for a WR that can’t bean Brown, Cole or Zay in this hypothetical scenario?

I mean he would have to be horrible to get cut but he wasn’t that far off from being useless at Bama and getting cut last camp (and no other team trying to trade for him).  He has all the skills but he is far from a sure thing.  But he is super cheap.

CB he wasn't useless at Bama. He was surrounded by superstars and it was hard for him to get the ball. If I recall correctly there were also some injuries and remember, until Tua came along Bama was primarily a running team (with 1 great receiver) for many years.

 

I am all for keeping Foster unless a team was offering up a 1st round (or perhaps a 2nd) which is not going to happen, and this only because the 2020 draft is just chock full of receivers like we haven't seen in years. Imo there are 3 draft eligible wrs next year on Alabama who are better than Foster.

 

Trust me on this one.

This is the same stain that said the Chargers should sit Phillip Rivers for the first 5 games.

After a particularly inept and catastrophe prone co-worker trundled back to his work area one day, I heard the foreman remark “that guy’s father should have put that load into the sheets...”  Draw any comparisons?  😁

I respect you on your Bama (though you know there’s a little bias).  My main point was he was a pretty big recruit and couldn’t play there.  And he was pretty bad in camp, got cut, and literally no other team put a claim on him.  I salute him for his second half but he is hard from a lock to make the team (I would bet he does).  And honestly with the game on the line, I don’t fully trust him yet.  That’s why I would love a true number 1 but hopefully someone emerges.

He’s a hard lock.   You don’t give up on a guy who showed what he did in the second half of last season just because of what happened prior to that. It’s irrelevant.

...could be and I don't get to see college ball so I'll value your assessment......better point may be whose radar was Foster actually on coming out of 'Bama?.....always surprises out there versus the perceived "obvious"......

The thing is, you know what you have in Foster (to a degree) and if these guys are as good as you say, they'll be high 1st rounders.  Can you assure getting them with the 1st round you'll get back in trade and will they pan out?  But I doubt any team would trade a 1st for him and a 2nd isn't worth even listening to.

Umm Zay Jones was on the roster last year, invested a 3rd and 7th for Benjamin, and Foster still got plenty reps from the start. This dude is an idiot.

Nope. At least please no.

 

There is nothing wrong with having two WR’s that can take the top off of a defense. Especially if one gets hurt.

 

IMO, trading  Foster would be dumb.
