Oh my god... The coaching staff vs. the fans on Zay Jones might be the most hilarious thing I've ever seen. Zay Jones is a top player on this roster and is still on his rookie contract. He will not even be a consideration for cuts... I truly don't understand why fans have it out for him so much. I wonder if it's because fans had unrealistic expectations for him. He was a second-round draft pick, folks, and he hasn't been a disappointment.

I bet at least three of these players will be let go:

 

LeSean McCoy

Robert Foster

Lee Smith

Stephen Hauschka

Harrison Phillips

Siran Neal

I can't see any of those being cut, never mind 3.

I'd call DiMarco and H. Phillips my possible surprise cuts.

 

Also, I also expect 2 or 3 surprise TRADES before the season begins. Anyone else think so?

 

Beane could easily get a 4 - 6 round draft pick for one of their young receivers (Foster, McCloud, Phillips, McIntyre, or even Zay Jones) from a team in need, who's also low on the waiver wire list. Maybe they can score a third rounder for Zay.

 

I think the same is true for our depth on the Offensive Line and at Defensive Back.

The front office could move an older "next man up" to keep and develop a younger guy with potential, or vice versa.

 

What a great time to be a Bills fan. Go Bills!

If wouldn't be at all surprising if an undrafted rookie is cut. Plus, no need for a third QB on a deep 53. He'll live on the practice squad nicely this season.

His [Zay Jones'] disappearing act tonight was almost as impressive as the levitation thing. 

Did you watch the game pretty closely to see why he "disappeared" last night? Not his fault.

Zay certainly isn’t a “top player.” He was horrendous as a rookie. He graded out as the lowest graded receiver in football. He bounced back last year and was okay. Was he effective last year because the other WRs were so bad or is he now a decent NFL receiver? 

 

He also doesn’t have any differentiating skills. He has terrible hands. Zay is no more than a decent route runner. He doesn’t have great short area quickness nor does he stretch the field. Zay is just okay or worse at every skill (besides levitation). 

 

If the Bills decide that they need a mix of skill sets he COULD (again not likely) be the odd man out. They could try to trade him for a later round pick (hi Giants) or cut him.

 

Brown, Beasley and Roberts are locks. Foster and Zay are likely. McKenzie is getting close to likely. Ray-Ray, Duke, Phillips, and even Easley are trying to sneak up. It isn’t crazy to me to think that McKenzie passes Zay on the depth chart (if he hasn’t already). The Bills also may want the big body of Duke because they don’t have any size otherwise. They don’t have someone that can make that play he did yesterday. It’s not impossible to me to see the WR depth chart as Brown, Beasley, Foster, McKenzie, Roberts, and Duke.

I don’t see it as Shaq. He’s still relatively cheap, and he’s “solid”. Not worth his draft status, but solid. It’s going to be a tough call though come cut time. Good football players will not make this team. 

 

Also an expiring contract and will get paid elsewhere so you’ll potentially see a good comp pick if we focus on adding stars and not a volume of guys next year.

Agreed.  The Detroit game may go a long way toward determining Zay's future here.   He'll likely get a lot of playing time and if we don't see much progress, I'd agree that Beane might look to get some kind of low round pick for him.

Without zay you have very few guys that can “do it all” if brown misses time. I don’t love zay but he’s cheap and the prospect of:

 

beasley, Roberts and foster as our top 3 would have me a little worried about who the every down outside WR that runs the whole tree reliably is.

For the people who are saying Lawson, Jones, Foster I can sort of agree but at the same time those guys have value around the league. 

 

Im sure if the decision was to move on from any of those 3 they should be able to get some sort of draft pick compensation back. In the case of Jones and Lawson obviously we’d be losing in the value they were drafted at but I’m sure someone would take a shot to reinvent a young high round pick for say a 4th/5th rounder

No chance Shaq is cut. He is more likely to sign an extension than he is to be cut. He played a nice game. He broke up that pass that he read perfectly and collapsed the pocket so that Harrison Phillips could clean up with that sack. I guess we watched different games.

 

Zay is a guy that would be surprising (but possible). I think guys like Coleman & Munnerlyn are vets that are on the bubble. Daryl Johnson may bump someone else off the roster too.

I thought for sure they would mention it during the replay, but nothing. He locked up the tackle, guard, and center on that one. Might as well start Harry and let Shaq do Star's job from now on lol.

I think that’s fair.

Does Zay make you feel better honestly? I dread whenever a pass heads his way. He has been awful.

No way Boy Toy gets cut.

He will be cut as an example that the coaches do not play favorites.  Plus, he is not a top 4 TE.

Duke looked good last night while Ray Ray looked off. I think the size and red zone threat will lock him into a spot.

Yes. 

 

Would you really rather have ray ray getting 50+ snaps a game as an outside receiver? Or Roberts? 

 

If beasley is in the slot, who are your two outside receivers if brown misses games?

I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't count towards the PS number. It's something special to do with that international program.

I'd rather put McKenzie out there. He probably gets just as much separation, and even if he only caught the ball 50% of the time it would be an improvement. I think Duke pushes Ray Ray out, so maybe him.

PS number?? Please clarify I have no clue what this abbreviation mean
