Phillips embarasses Brandon Beane

I don't know he phrased it pretty well saying what's been called on him showing a clip and just asking a question. Also I thought the thing he's been getting called on was getting too aggressive and lining up in the neutral zone.

I like that he’s bringing attention to it. I would like to see more players and coaches take the fine and call out these refs. I do expect a fine though, the league expects everyone to stay hushed and not criticize or point out bad officiating especially on social media. With the Pats coming up in a monster game we already know the storm that’s coming from the officials. And we already know Hughes needs to bring a few jerseys to the game after the left tackle rips them to shreds holding. If it’s a badly officiated game again like Baltimore I would like to see buffalo take a stance against the officiating they have been getting. Granted I do feel the refs made it up to buffalo in the raven game cause there was atrocious calls on both teams.

For a year...then Milano, Poyer, and Dawkins are FAs after 2020.

 

And Hyde and White are up after 2021.

 

They also need to add a pass rusher, corner, and WR this offseason.

 

Can't pat everyone...so who goes?

 

@Virgil was kind enough to do the leg work that the rest of us didnt want to do.

 

 

Long story short: We can re-sign and extend all our guys and STILL have over $30M in cap space for new, outside FAs.

A few things here:

 

The numbers for Phillips and KJ are pretty extreme hometown discounts; I will be very surprised if those are the numbers.

 

The analysis doesn't account for future cap numbers for Tre, Poyer, Dawkins, and Milano. That's probably close to $50M alone.

Fair enough, but given his analysis leaves us with $42.2M in cap I'm still low with the statement that we'll have $30M left over.

 

Add another $4M to Philips (from $11M to $15M), and Virgil's number is still $38.2M in cap space.

 

Dawkins and Milano are accounted for in that breakdown. Tre is not, and I think Beane will be prepping us to let both Poyer and Hyde walk after their contracts are up.

 

Either way, the point stands, we have plenty of money to sign any and every one of our own players if we want. And still have money left over for outside guys.

I'll have to take a look. I'll also have to give some thought to whether I'd rather have Phillips at $15.5M plus Star's dead money hit or the cap space to sign others and a 3rd round comp pick.

 

I'm on record as saying he is my favorite player on the team so this is not an unbiased post but....

 

The Bills have so much cap space going into next year.  I think they can keep Star, Murphy, etc for another year and still do what they want.  There is no reason to create holes and swallow dead money when they have so much flexibility.  Star and Murphy can play next year then the dead space for star drops considerably while Murphy's contract is off the books.  I think they should only look at cutting players when they have cap troubles.  I don't see a reason to create a hole just to need to pay someone else to fill it.

 

For example Star's contract pays him 10.1 million next year which I agree is a lot.  Dead money is 7.8 million.  Can you find a better player for 2.3 million?  I don't think so.  Also cutting someone means signing someone which cuts into the comp formula.  I think this year they won't be quite as active but still doing some fa signing.  Comp picks are a year away still imo.

 

Sign Philips to 15.5 if that is what it takes, keep Star and Murphy, sign shaq to 9 million and you still have 65 million dollars to work with.  Draft a pass rusher to replace Murphy and Hughes after next year.  Just spit balling but I hate the idea of cutting guys for minimal savings when they don't need the money

I just can't see Beane spending 65+ million (one-third of the cap) on the DL without having a better pass rushing DE.

If he really wants to sign Phillips and Shaq then something has to give.  Murphy seems like the obvious choice to move on from.

Remember when the Bills let Ted walk?

 

The run D never recovered.

 

Pay the man and keep up the rotation the big men stay fresh that way..

I do. The similarities scare me. I hope we can retain Jordan.

Agree.  There is no reason to keep Murphy who is just not an impact player.  After the 2020 season, Star could be gone as well.

Phillips is a really like able guy. Gotta hope that’s a good sign for negotiations as well. I think after almost flaming out in Miami that Jordan Phillips understands how important “fit” is for a player. I have a feeling he’ll be back, on a fair contract. 4yrs $8M aav? Idk what would be guaranteed but that’s more than I get involved in with the NFL contracts

He's got 9.5 sacks on the season...among DTs, only Aaron Donald has more (11.0). The next closest is DeForest Buckner with 6.5.

 

Phillips is 26 years old, and is a dangerous pass rusher that also happens to weigh 340 lbs. 

 

My estimated price tag on the open market: $15.5M per year.

Hope he goes in at 10, 12 million tops,  better to play where your successful imo, but who listens to me? Bloody no-one... 😁

Article with more stuff on how Beane relates to the team

 

https://www.rochesterfirst.com/nfl/beane-is-a-players-gm/

 

Open lines of communication but respect

“He does as good of a job as any I’ve ever seen of bridging that gap and making sure it’s well understood he’s our boss, but there’s no need to walk on eggshells when you walk down the hallway,” Lee Smith said. “He’s very approachable and just top notch.”

I think when a guy's description calls himself a "Justice Journalist", we can predict the take.

If your tool is a hammer, golly gee everything looks like a nail!
