Pro Football Network: Bills one of teams in on Clowney trade

Recommended Posts

Another question would be............

 

Do you trust McDermott to bring Clowney to an all-world level?

Yea, we’d probably have to throw in picks to outbid Miami, given they have a franchise Tackle they somehow don’t want to keep.  

 

That said, I just can’t wrap my head around it.  I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a team in tank mode make a blockbuster trade like this.

This was yesterday , Lombardi said he'd be gone in 24-48 hrs and they want a WR... Interesting

I think there is pretty decent Clowney is a Bill by the  end of the day. They are one of two teams mentioned and Clowney rumored to not want to go to Miami. He controls the situation, remember, because he can’t be traded until he signs his franchise tender. 

 

wait, not wanting to go to Miami.  I read a story last year that nobody wanted to come here!?!?

 

wonder what we are trading.  Likely a RB and draft pick.

What about next year's 1st, McCoy and Shaq? That's where the conversation would likely start to get Clowney. 

 

I'm fine with this, considering the 1st will be 32nd.

That one-year rental bothers me. 

 

 

 

It puts tremendous pressure on the GM to re-sign him i.e. overpay next year. He's not as good as the insane contract he's going to command.

What would the Bills trade?  Houston is reportedly looking for a starting Olineman or WR.  We aren't exactly great in those departments either.

I was looking at spotrac for his "probable" contract and it is 100 million for 6 years. I want no part of that for him.

This is inaccurate Fergy. He was a monster in college. That hit just got a ton of play. As a UM fan, I prefer not to watch it. In terms of his NFL career, he's shaken off early injuries and improved each and every year. His sack numbers have risen to around 9 even though he's not always tasked with rushing the passer in that scheme. He has SIXTY FOUR TFL's. The guy is legit.

Clowney is big time legit. His play cannot always be measured in numbers. He generates a lot of pressure, he is all over the run game, and in constant pursuit. Plug him in to this defense and now we are getting somewhere!

Phins could do still and tunsil for him or something. 

I still think they are dumb for trading Tunsil but whatever, I won’t complain if they trade either of those guys. I think the problem is that Clowney reportedly does not want to go there.  Could have to do with the coach, the ownership, the lack of a qb, who knows.

Doesn't make sense that they need a WR when they can't keep the QB upright.

Alshon Jeffrey for Clowney would also make a TON of sense.

 

 

This is also far more likely.

Clowney is a great player, but do the Bills really need to give up a bunch of assets for one guy, to improve a Defense that’s already very solid? I know they need better depth at LB, but this seems a bit luxurious if you’re trying to build a complete team.

Meh. The worst thing an organization can do is acquire elite talent because you have to pay them and they MIGHT not live up to the contract. Do I have that right?

Thats less $ than Trey Flowers got.

 

And Clowney is FAR superior

This defense would have zero weaknesses if we got Clowney.  We’d be talking dominance. 

 

Hughes - Star - Oliver - Clowney

 

Milano - Edmunds - Lorax

 

White - Johnson - Wallace

 

Hyde - Poyer

 

Solid depth at every level behind those guys

No.

 

I hope we pass on this deal.

Just goes to show how difficult it really is for a team to find the right players.

I’m surprised it hasn’t been linked much more often honestly. It makes a ton of sense

  We are trimming players at a few positions that will likely by signed by other teams.  Might as well get something out of them and if we can sign Clowney long term that is a bonus.
