...great point John and a big difference from Whaley (our posting Rico's best buddy-LOL).....never was convinced Whaley was given full GM power versus personnel gopher as in "we need you to go fer this position player" directed by "The F Troop" brass........pretty sure he had an upcoming year with 23 UFA's......McBeane artfully crafted "prove it deals (players with longer term potential) " whereas Whaley was commissioned for "stop gap players" regardless of longer term prognosis....strictly opinion......

I feel the same way about Whaley. We’ll likely never know unless Rex does a tell all book at some point.

I'm guessing they let Spain walk and move Feliciano or Ford to LG while looking for an upgrade at RT via FA or draft. 

 

WR is their biggest need, IMO. Hoping they bring a good one in via FA AND the draft. 

 

...many of the TBD collegiate experts have said 2020 WR class is the "best in years"......just a hunch that McBeane goes the draft route......

Foster and Wallace are ERFAs so they will be back for cheap 

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Beane try to lock down Wallace with an extension of he keeps his performance up. Keeping that secondary together is probably a top priority.

While Levi Wallace is technically a Free Agent, he is an exclusive right free agent meaning he can't negotiate with another team, so don't worry about him to get snapped up by another team. Mckenzie is a Restricted Free Agent so if they Bills tender him, another team would have to pony up a 5th rounder for him(unlikely).

 

I think you'll see Ford get bumped inside next year and Spain has been inconsistent so he will probably go. Jordan Phillips i'd like back but he's going to be looking for his "big" contract next year. Lawson will probably want to be a starter and get a pay bump in a different situation. I could see Alexander coming back if he believes the Bills are legit super bowl contenders.

 

The only guys I can see the Bills wanting to bring back that could leave is Dean Marlowe. He is also a restricted free agent but he was undrafted so the Bills wouldn't get compensation for him. I could see the Bills tendering him but getting a bigger deal that the Bills dont necessarily want to pay.

Guaranteed to be narcissistic drivel, but the sports writer recap should be comprehendible. Of course there’s always the option of a book on tape, a joint or drinking game, and plenty of laughs.

I hope they do both.

 

Add a good one in FA and the draft.... unless Duke really emerges.

I assume White will get his Fifth year tender.    Poyer, Milano and Dawkins would need to get paid,  especially Poyer...He has been one of the best safeties in the NFL.

I have a strong feeling we will let poyer walk and J.Johnson will step in his spot.

I still think he might negotiate an actual contract with Wallace. Primarily to spread the cost and keep the yearly cheap, The benefit for Wallace would be guaranteed money now and more salary in the first 1-2 years than he would have gotten. 

 

Phillips is going to be interesting. Can’t say the guy will take a home town discount, but all things being equal I think he resigns here. Plus, Beane might not want to shake up the DT rotation. There’s always the chance some team offers stupid money though, especially if he has another monster game.

I’d take a good hard look at Geronimo Allison if the Packers let him go. Dude can play and finds openings when Rodgers scrambles. That’s got some value considering Allen’s talents. They’ll probably resign him, but they’re close to the cap and are about to find out what their younger WRs have to offer. In general, I’m not too enthralled with this years WR FA class.

I’m unsure off who is restricted and who is not...

 

2019 Free Agents:
LB Lorenzo Alexander—he is resigned here if he doesn’t retire at a low cost

DT Jordan Phillips— try to keep him

OL Quentin Spain

RB Frank Gore — I see him getting resigned for a year or two

CB Kevin Johnson

S    Dean Marlowe

S    Kurt Coleman

WR Isaiah McKenzie

WR Robert Fostery. — I see them keeping him at a low cost 

LB Julian Sanford

RB Seniorise Perry

CB Levi Wallace — sign him to a 4 yr deal

 

The others I see them resigning some. Others can be replaced by draft or other practice squad player development 

Quote

 

2020 Free Agents:

CB Tre’Davious White* — he is signed 

LB Matt Milano — he is signed 
OL Dion Dawkins- he is signed 

DL Trent Murphy he can be signed

S   Jordan Poyer — he can be signed 

OT Ty Nsheke

OG Jon Feliciano

FB Patrick DiMarco

WR Andre Roberts

QB Matt Barkley— he can be resigned 

RB TJ Yeldon

 

others it depends on draft and free agent signings in 2030

Didn't we recently obtain another 5th from someone?

Yes from the Raiders for Zay, but it's in the 2021 draft.

LB Lorenzo Alexander - 1 year cap friendly deal

DT Jordan Phillips

OL Quentin Spain

CB Levi Wallace 

 

2020 Free Agents:

CB Tre’Davious White*  - 5th year option but try to get a deal done - will save on cap space and not risk him getting to free agency

OL Dion Dawkins - try to extend ahead of time 

S   Jordan Poyer - try to extend ahead of time

OG Jon Feliciano

 

 

 

Would like to resign:

DE Shaq Lawson

The guy that I disagree with most with on that list is Milano. If he wants big money, let him walk. He's great but I have little faith in him completing 16-game seasons. Johnson and McKenzie are "meh" resignings. Shaq is only worth it for a fair contract. Gore I love but again only for the right $$.

Probably better that way...the draft route. Alot of these Wr's are more pro ready these days. Far better option than trading valuable draft picks for aging stars in their twilight.

...I'm probably an old fart ruse, but I see McBeane as a "committed to building through the draft" type....harken back to the Steelers (an ok organization, right?) 2009 SB club....19 of their 22 starters were acquired through the draft.....

I like that way of thinking, especially after the results we are beginning to see. I have returned in favor of the draft route as well, though I still like a few strategic FA moves if they are absolutely right on.

Beane is building the roster wisely - signing us some good pieces at reasonable prices for short terms, preparing, I would assume, to preserve cap so he can lock up some of our young core that he drafted (White, Allen, Edmunds, Milano). It is clear he values the center position highly, as Wood was extended for a fairly large sum and then we went out and signed Morse this offseason. Will be interesting to see what he does with the rest of the OL cap-wise. 

 

I think they are going to target DE and WR in the draft. I don't know the full list of pending FA's but I don't really see them making any splash signings unless there is a surprise cut. You've got Von Miller, Clowney and Fowler possibly on the market. Do you go after any of those guys?

If the season ended today I am signing Shaq if it is at or lower than Trent Murphy money (7 million).

 

if someone is stupid with him at 10 million, no way.

 

however, mid 20s, can cover the run and is showing just a bit at rushing the qb.  Yeah, I’m thinking that is a pretty good rotational/starter player.

 

i don’t think philips is going to blow up from here on out, meaning I don’t think he is going to finish the season with 10 sacks or so, so I hope to sign him in the same range.
