Would you guys want to re-sign Dawkins at the 15 mill a year price tag?

Recommended Posts

Dawkins ranks in the upper half of LT's in the NFL for sure and it is going to cost 15 mill a year to keep him................

 

Question is?????

 

Is it a wise decision to keep him at this rate?

 

I say it's a big yes, but I think a lot of you might feel differently.

 

What do you think?

The market is just going to keep increasing as with anything else. I'm fine with 5 years $70,000,000-$75,000,000 in total with $45,000,000-$50,000,000 of that being guaranteed. I just hope they get the deal done sooner rather than later as the price tag will continue to go up.

Good point, the sooner the better, money wise.

Yes. I was sceptical before the year. I was unconvinced at the quarter pole. I thought he had his best, most consistent period as a Bill from the bye onwards. I'd pay the man. Again the CBA issue makes an extension this year tricky, but because (unlike Tre White) you don't have a means of keeping him next year without the contract extension (save for the tag) so I think you have to bite the bullet.

Yes.  He's very good, he's 25 and he stays healthy.  These are the exact type of players you sign long term.

He i s one of McBean's guys.  He gets resigned imho.  The money....well, its a budget game.....but, the better guys need to be  reup'd.   You know the names.

I'd prefer to keep it around 12-13 per year, but that's not the world we live in. I would try and get him and Tre done asap, so we can keep this train rolling before the salaries get even more wack.

Also, he is the Bills best red zone target right now.

Eh.  I’ve maintained no, but I also haven’t broken down any of his film this year.  I think we’re going to resign him because he’s been playing his cards right/seems like a great guy.  
 

Just seems to me he gets beat on plays we have to have

Yep.    Above average LT's cost a lot of money...

Dawkins is everything you want out of a player in the locker room and off the field.
I think if Beane can find him a constant solid left guard to play beside, Dawkins will be a solid to good LT for years to come. It’s not coincidence that Dawkins disappointing season came when the entire line was in shambles. 
 

Yes, pay him and move on.

Draft, develop, retain.  The proper way to build a successful organization.

He is a quality player who will get the  market rate.  That seems to be in the $15 million +/- range.  Invest in QB, LT, Edge, CB with your cap.  Those are the hard players retain without spending.

We should get a slight discount if we do it during the offseason, to remove some risk from him and to get him money earlier.

 

But basically yeah, absolutely.

I honestly don't think he's a top LT. Not even top 10 rn

 

He takes good amount of penalties and gets beat more than you want. I think he's good , not great
