Why didn't Beane and McDermott just stay in North Carolina?  

 

I think It would be hard to run the team from there ;)

Very good pick, i like it !

6M for 1 year is a very good deal imo, we have nothing to lose with this one.

With tre' on the other side we dont need josh norman of 5 yrs ago.  He is back in the scheme were he flourished so let's wait and see.  It's a 6mil dollar deal with 8mil in incentives.  If he hits those then the Bill's def prolly had a good yr.  Let's reserve judgement until the season plays out.  I think the backend looks sick..White, hyde, poyer, norman

I was thinking the same thing Clemfield.  To have White, Poyer, Hyde, Norman, Johnson as he wasn’t really expensive, and Wallace, we have depth.  Norman’s 1 year deal is incentive laden so they could cut him, and I liked Johnson last year.  Given that last game where we had to have McKenzie play CB as we were so depleted tells me we keep all of these players.

 

WGR is actually reporting very fairly today.

Prediction: Josh Norman beats Vontae’s record and retires at the 8:42 mark of the 1st quarter, Game 2. 

 

I will take that bet  :)

 

V Davis looked horrible in pre season and you could clearly see he couldn't run anymore after that groin surgery.

 

The heat in the stadium was unbearable that day and I bet it was 20 degrees hotter on the field.

 

He just picked a very bad moment to realise his career was over.

A little high considering his last couple seasons, but it's a one year deal and we have money to burn so who really cares?

 

1/4 on the free agent signings I feel pretty confident about, though this was easily the one I was most confident in.

I'm completely okay with this. McDermott will put Norman into situations that suit him best, and squeeze the best out of him. And I would think that coach knows Norman well enough that we aren't in for another Vontae meltdown.

Does this mean Amari Cooper isn't coming B-lo! Didn't these guys have some on field battles over the last couple years? Not that I ever though Cooper was coming here.....

That's still in the cards. Remember McKittrick playing CB against Sammy D? Yeah... don't nobody want to see THAT again 😂

I like the signing , we needed an upgrade at the CB-2 position and I believe we got that , Wallace was getting burn a lot last year , I like K Johnson and I hope we bring him back ( at a reasonable price ) him and Wallace as depth at 3 & 4 that’s not bad IMO !! 

GO Bills !!!

I don't know that this move would prevent Johnson from coming back. But i think Johnson's play last year will get him a multi year deal somewhere.

   My first thought on what he brings: Infectious Attitude. 
   JN is one of those strange, goofy personalities that you can’t help but like if he’s on your side.

   I see McBeane understanding that the window is opening for a SB run and they are going to try to get this team competitive both physically and emotionally.

This regime loves one year deals.   Which Seems like a good strategy

Meh, he's 32 and hasn't been great the past 2 seasons but $6M isn't too much and the Bills have money to spend.

Big name but is the value really there?

 

Considering that top guys get 15m an established vet getting 6m with bonuses is good value.

There is something that I don’t get with this contract, I saw 6M for 1 year but it can go to 8M, I just don’t understand why ? 😅
