I think they see Bates as more than just a camp body.

 

If they wanted a camp body they could have cut Bojorkodork and signed a street free agent.

It is a little more difficult to determine the final 53 this year...and the Bills may not be done.

It is kind of nice to see that some of the OL who would have been starters last year are now delegated to secondary roles. That is the kind of depth achieved in such a short time. In the case of Bates, he does provide versatility, either now or as a developmental player. I didn't see the game, but there are obviously glowing reports across the entire line. The more the pre season plays out, I would not be surprised to see McDermott make additional moves if it means putting the best team on the field.

 

I am a bit hard on Bodine, and admittedly I am a bit biased towards some of the center prospects coming out of the draft next year. Bodine looks to have every opportunity to convince the coaches and Beane that he is good enough to make the Bills pass on them next year.

While I hate that in some ways, it’s encouraging if they think we have more talented OLine guys. I like Teller maybe more than most.

Love that kid's attitude, and once he gets into a defender's body it is over. The only thing I think he needed to work on was his footwork a bit and in pass pro improving on both recognizing and correctly picking up the right guy on stunts. I would be surprised if he does not stick and with the ways injuries happen across the line and gets some starts this season.

 

We will see - I am rooting for him too.

No doubt. I’m not sure how to feel about this trade. There must be some aspect of the o-line they did not like, depth-wise I mean.

 

***Vlad and Bodine slowly step forward***

Waddle was a swing tackle and they lost him to injury.  Bates is a swing tackle and could be his replacement

Love him or hate him, Bodine seems to have the rest of the pre season to straighten things out. The draft is eight months away and as we are seeing, the Bills are building more depth. Even though only one game has been played, it is encouraging to hear about stellar performances across the OL.

 

He’s injured now.  And Feliciano starting over him speaks volumes about where Bodine stands with the coaching staff.  He’s had 74 starts in his career to “straighten things out.”  He blows.

Sounds like he's not very good. 

he is not very good now but Harold was gonna get cut for certain so this is a flyer without cost.

Well we all know how you felt about the McCoy trade.

 

So I think we’re ok here.

Even with Morse out, they have Feliciano and Long that can play center.

 

Feliciano fared well in his limited time.

I think it's more losing Waddle, McDermott being down now, and Bodine being a horrible tragedy.

Excellent! Did Harold even play last night?

 

Eli did play in the preseason game last night. Was in late. I saw him make at least one good play in the 4th quarter. But agree that he obviously wasn't going to make this roster. I love how Beane and this staff are never idle. They are always looking to improve the team, which after the draft and FA, usually means churning the bottom of the roster looking for diamonds in the rough or simply bodies to cover for positions that have seen injuries.

Darryl Johnson out here getting dudes traded. 

O-line injuries got dudes traded...Johnson is still behind Hughes, Lawson, Murphy, Yarbrough and Love.

It definitely shouldn't...not for this guy anyways.

 

This is simply a camp body because of all the injuries on the offensive line since camp opened.

This is a low risk gamble but still a gamble because the kid might never suit up on Sunday

And neither will Harold.

Bates can play guard, center and tackle.

He hasnt played at all on the NFL,yet. Played tackle and guard in college and some scouts thought he could eventually move to center. Moves well,not very strong.Camp body maybe practice squad

No, I think it just gets you back Up tackle, should they like Ford at G.

 

Teller might be the number 2 back up guard, if your starters are Dawkins, Spain, Morris, Ford, and Nsehke (sorry if I spelled it wrong).

 

So, with Feliciano as the back up center, Teller and Long the back up guards, and somebody showing something as the swing tackle, that group of nine might be it.

 

plus you could always put long at back up center should Morris go down, and if anything happens to nsehke, Ford goes to tackle and long comes in.  Then if anything happens to Dawkins this new kid could sub there, or bring nsehke over and put the kid at RT.

 

PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU HATE THIS OFFENSIVE LINE BECAUSE YOU NEED TO EXPLAIN THAT TO ME.

 

😂👍

 

EDIT: I know I am the only one who does this, but whenever I think of feliciano his name in my head is always to the melody of Feliz Navidad.

 

Feli Ci Ano.

Feli Ci Ano!
