All joking aside, Benjamin went unsigned and may well be out of the league for good. He's only 28.

Oh, I agree. I can’t seem anyone paying him.  Sad, he didn’t take his career more seriously.

Free agent market in 2020 is pretty bare, and likely to become even more barren with re-signings. Depth signings on the OL is always good. Depth CB’s are always good to have too

I'd have to see a list of available free agents.

Off the top of my head, it would seem that the biggest needs for the Bills next year will be at edge rusher and wide receiver. Both positions are rich in the draft, and the Bills are rich with cash.

I'd like to see Buffalo start pre-emptively extending some of their own homegrown talent and find either a big time EDGE or WR in free agency, if one is available. Address these positions again in the draft, and we're ready to roll.

Not 100% up to date but it's a start https://nfltraderumors.co/2020-nfl-free-agent-list/

Can you imagine how beloved Tyler Boyd would be?!?

He re-signed with Cincy for 4 years in July, http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001036624/article/bengals-wr-tyler-boyd-signs-4year-43m-extension

One thing people tend to forget, is that cap space carries over from the previous year.

Just because we have tons of space, doesn't mean we need to go crazy.

 

As stated, we can probably start looking at early extensions for Matt Milano and maybe Dion Dawkins (if he has a really good year).

We get a 5th Year Option on Tre White, so it may be a year too soon to extend him.

 

If the Bills position themselves as contenders, don't be surprised if they target a big-time player through trade.

In addition to WR and DE, I'd like us to bring in a bigger name pass catching TE.  In FA or the draft, I don't care.

Let this season play out. 2 Draft picks made the team. We may not think TE for a dozen seasons.

I would move Edmunds to that position and find a different ILB that can play in 3 LB sets.  Of course, they may already have that guy in Vosean or Stanford.

This is a joke like your other entries here, right?

The kid was POTM in December. Has the wing span of an eagle.

Jesus!

Currently there are 43 players under contract for 2020.   Man did they shore up some holes.

 

10 players and $90 Million

Huh? No...not at all.

 

I would play Edmunds in the role that LorAx plays.  Only difference would be that Edmunds would never leave the field.

 

Point being that he's got so much more in him than just a MLB.  He can rush the passer, play over the TE, play down the funnel, cover backs, blitz from the inside, etc.

 

He's got more value playing elsewhere, whereas someone far less talented (like Vosean, for instance) can play MLB.

Sign whichever WR the Bengals let go between Boyd and Green

Sign one of the following EDGE players: Clowney, Ngakoue, Fowler, Beasley, Von Miller (if his option isn't picked up), C. Jones (if released for cap reasons), Campbell (if released for cap reasons)

Sign Tre White to an extension

Don’t go near Vic Beasley. 

But I like your approach.

I don't get the crap he's getting.    He was 19 years old when he started the season!!! 

 

What he accomplished as the QB of the defense was awesome IMO

All of this is accurate and better suited to where he is. The new primary offense is 3 step drops and fire short. He played havoc with scheme all through his rookie season. I can’t think of any reason to move this tower out of the middle of the field.

Sir....please

 

Edmunds looks outstanding in his 2nd year at OLB and totally fits what McD wants from his middle backer.....WHY would we do this?

 

We should just figure out who is gonna be the replacement at olb

I think folks are misreading me re: Edmunds.  I think he'll be a very good MLB. I also think that he will have far greater value if he's allowed to move around the defense and play on the EDGE at least as much as in the middle.

I just think that a lesser player can do what is asked of a MLB, and that he can do much more than what most LBs are capable of.

My. Word. Guys.

 

I didn't knock Edmunds. At all.

 

I've explained why we would do this multiple times.  EDGE players have, to a man, more value than MLBs, and Edmunds is capable of making more plays than your typical MLB who stays in the funnel.

We’ve seen him very effectively blitz, stuff lanes and defend passes from right where he is. I expect even more development from this season and he’s already a stud. McDermott wants him there and he’s done nothing to second guess that thinking. Milano is the guy from the outside in the Defense to rush, pursue and play the flat.

That number will dip a bit with resigning some of our own. If all these guys play lights out in their contract year (2020), we could be down to about $60M. Extending a few keys guys a year early could drop us down to $30-40M. Still a ton of coin for FA. We need some help at OLB and Edge Rusher. 

 

Probably extend:  Forgot they are on rookie deals and cannot be extended yet
Robert Foster

Levi Wallace

 

Wait and see how the year goes: 

Kevin Johnson

Shaq Lawson

Quinton Spain 

Jordan Phillips

Spencer Long (There is a club option for 2020) 

 

Possibly extend early:

Matt Barkley

Tre White

Ty Nseke

Trent Murphy 

Jordan Poyer

Zay Jones

Dion Dawkins

Matt Milano 

John Feliciano

Can't extend either Foster or Wallace until after the 2020 season at the earliest.

And I think he should play in the middle; I just think he should play elsewhere too is all.  You can probably effectively combine the LB role that he and LorAx are playing currently and hand that to Edmunds--that's how talented he is...the only practical change would be that Edmunds plays outside when there are 3 LBs on the field.  And it's because of how good Edmunds is, not any type of deficiency.

 

It's fine if other folks don't want to move him, but I'm a bit surprised at the level of vitriol from the mere suggestion that he can be put to better use.
