Shame, but he's constantly hurt. That's probably why the Rams were so quick to toss him into the Watkins trade. He was also injured last season in Cleveland. Good player but you can't count on him.

We all knew when he was signed again he’s not very durable. The beauty of all the free agent signings to pair with the young talent is we’re not depending on these guys for 16 games. As soon as I seen Gaines signed I was hoping to get 8-10 game appearances from him. Which is enough for him to have an impact

Stash him on IR and bring him back after Kevin Johnson gets hurt.

You really gotta feel forbgaines

 

he is a VERY GOOD player who just can’t stay healthy I was hoping that having him as a reserve would help with this

Groins and hamstrings.  Once they go, you never really fully recover and they are always vulnerable to re-injury.  Sorry to say, I think its time to move on from EJ.  Just cannot stay healthy consistently.  Its a shame, he plays well when he actually plays.

I think we all kind of felt like this would be an issue all year - He's basically a guy that's a luxury for us to have when healthy.  We still have 4 legit DB's with Siran Neal as the 5th, who the staff seems high on.  EJ Gaines is that 6th guy, who will help when healthy.

Actually they have 7 legit DBs: White, Wallace, Hyde, Poyer, T. Johnson, K. Johnson, Neal. Gaines was probably #8.

My bad, I was just specifying the corner backs - we definitely have a top tier Safety Tandem back there as well.

Dude is way too injury prone.  Its too bad because he's a decent depth corner when healthy.

That’s Karma! 😂

 

as for Gaines, I really don’t want to go through another season where the DB’s and defense is so much better when one player is out there. Two years ago when Gaines wasn’t able to play the defense took a huge hit. Looks like the Bills have a lot better options this year than 2017. When McDermotts D has two good corners it’s a totally different d.

Plenty of depth behind Gaines, I wish the NFL had a proper disabled list but oh well maybe put him on the PUP to start the year?

I see no reason to outright cut him if his injury carries into the regular season. He'd be a great candidate for PUP and they could decide to settle or activate him later down the stretch. Not sure how guaranteed money would play in here, but it couldn't be too much.

 

Now if he is back healthy before the season, the may the best make the team

Given the decent depth behind him I see no reason why they shouldn't just put him on the PUP and save him until deeper into the season when the team might have an injury. 

 

Teams usually carry 6 corners, I don't see the team having 6 corners better than EJ however you have to make sure he is healthy.
