Who is your slightly surprising cut?

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

Butbutbut....Boy Toy.

Hauschka is my vote. Something isn't right with him.

i think Coleman is still going to be #3. Munnerlyn a decent chance of being cut. Johnson probably secured #4 S but he always was going to. I doubt Zay will be cut but he could be traded for a low pick. I'm hoping for it. Shaq has played very well IMO.

Yep. Zay for a #5 is a good guess.

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.

He certainly has. Do you trust him to make an important catch ?

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'd be much less shocked to see Zay traded before he were to get cut.  I think the Captain makes the team as he's become Gaines replacement.  Think it's his spot to lose possibly by not being able to get up to game speed/shape in time.

 

Same with Shaq, traded, maybe, cut no!  Unless they want to either cut Love or keep 5 at DE can see a trade there.

 

Wouldn't be surprised to see one or even two trades this week with surpluses at certain positions like WR, DE, and RB.  Maybe Shaq and-or Zay/Foster for a good backup tackle.

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. 

 

 

Those are the 6 that I picked in a different topic. I think that Sills & perhaps Bolden go to the PS.

No, it’s Bojorquez that’s left footed.

And it seems the thread is indicating ‘no Croom can catch’.  Someone please retrieve my comma.

who are your two outside receivers if brown misses games? 

 

I'd say that player is not yet on the Bills roster.  I suspect Beane will be very active in looking for hep in the trade/waiver market over the next two weeks...

He can't catch,  is afraid going over the middle...off field issues...etc....etc....He dropped that pass at the goal line against the colts because he closed his damn eyes when the defender reached his peripheral vision.

Is that a typo, or are you hoping to sound like James Brown?  😁

This would be my preferred day 1 WR corps, but I have to admit Foster is really disappointing me this year. I thought he had a lot to build on at the end of last season but he's completely disappeared. If he ends up not making the team I won't be all that surprised.

I agree that he has been a disappointment as well. I don't trust him to make a non important catch, much less an important one.

If we trade for a solid WR my take could quickly change. On just about any position the same carries true.

as for zay...some people are acting as if fans don't understand that rookies take time to develope. a wide reciever that has issues catching passes directly in his hands is a huge issue. nerves for a game or two but after that you need to perform the prime function of your job dependably. maybe you will never develop a full route tree, be in sync with your qb or o coordinator..but catching a good pass? the leash should be short on that and we are going in to year 3. want a lb that cant reliably tackle? a qb that cant throw straight? if passes routinly werent close to zay we can argue about who and why thats happening but when they are in his chest it gets pretty tiring to see the drops continue.

At this point, Zay.

 

Beane has talked up the kid so much, it would be a surprise based on that.

 

Based on his play, not so much.

 

Duke Williams started making his push for Zay's roster spot with last night's performance, though.

Yeah I thought Duke had a pretty good game last night. Was great to see him go up top and snag that TD pass. He had a few other catches in the slant. But overall, I thought he did very well. Gona make tough decisions for the coaches here very soon.
