Lee Smith

 

No.

Lee Smith's contract is fully guaranteed this year and he is doing what they expected him to do.

4. Buffalo Bills

If there's anyone who wants to keep Bryant out of the hands of Brady and Bill Belichick, it's the Bills. Currently in the midst of its most impressive season in a long time, Buffalo is 6-2 and not far behind its bitter rival from Foxborough. One of the Bills' biggest issues, however, is lack of a dynamic wide receiver corps. This is why they should drool at the mere thought of adding Bryant to the roster, a veteran presence who could help in the development of Josh AllenJohn Brown has established himself as an impact receiver, but not to the point you'd wave off signing Bryant.

Additionally, there's something to be said for recent free-agent signing of Cole Beasley, who just happens to be one of Bryant's best friends after having spent much of their career together with the Cowboys -- also sharing a level of disdain for Dallas. It's possible Beasley is texting Bryant as we speak to put a bug in his ear about Buffalo, who has an unexpected but very real chance to make waves in the playoffs.

To get there, though, they'll need another weapon or two, so it's safe to assume they'd throw Bryant a coat and a call, assuming he doesn't ring their line first.

I cant imagine he'd be more than an older, slower, and more expensive Duke Williams. Pass.

Yea, a multiple year pro bowler isnt better than Duke Williams???  Are you even serious? 

 

I cant picture Duke making half these plays.

Doubt he knows Pats D playbook.  That's what Bills need. 

He only played against their coverages and Gilmore and those safeties every day. The guy would be valuable as a FA to help solve Belicheat.

Duke Williams has 2 catches for 29 yards after that Nashville game. Why is anyone talking like he is our future? Foster had 500 yards last year and can’t sniff a catch this year so Duke is worth a bag of Tim Horton’s.

I never quite understood these posts. 

Then you should probably try a little harder...

 

They bring in so many random players for workouts all the time. Bringing in a former top 5 WR to see what he still has left in the tank, is hardly a head scratcher.

Then say you want them to do it for serious reasons - not kicking tires.

He would be playing against the scout team PS guys simulating the opponents defense in practice - not the Pats D.

It's not about what he's done in the past, it's what he can do now. Last I knew he was recovering from Achilles surgery. I'm not questioning anyones manhood,  so don't get your panties in a bunch. I'm just questioning whether or not he can still play football. Showing Peyton Manning highlights wouldn't change the fact that he's no longer a viable NFL QB. It's just reality.

I can’t imagine he’d be 1 of our best 53. If he somehow was, sure but it’d be shocking to see a declining player coming off an Achilles suddenly go back to being a player

The reality is he still put up good numbers in Dallas in his final year.   After hearing what Beasley had to say about Dallas, its more of a question of Dallas phasing him out of their offense vs him not being capable. 

 

He averaged a little more than 4 catches a game and over 11 yards per catch in his final year with Dallas. 

 

Can he come back from achilles ?  Why not?   Takeo Spikes did. 

 

To compare him to a Duke freakin Williams, and say he would be the lesser of the two is insane.  One came off a practice squad and was just deactived, the other is a proven pro bowl receiver.

 

If Buffalo believe the problem for Allen is Wr talent, they would be insane to not give him a call and work him out.

The person you quoted sounds like someone who goes commando under his skirt.

Another way to look at is, one has a Job in the NFL and the other one doesn't.
