Congrats to Jordan...from bust to a desirable free agent.  He worked hard the last two seasons to rehab a reputation that wasn't all his fault.  He endeared himself to a lot of Bills fans (including m

Good signing for them. They have the money, the need, and the available playing time for him to try and shine. And thank goodness he’s not in the afc East I would hate to see him hyped twice a year to

Sad to see him go. Jordan is a class act and I wish him nothing but the best in Arizona.

My all my questions about this regime on the offensive side, they made a lot of former “busts” a lot of money.  Good for those guys for getting paid but they are very replaceable. 
 

but on paper, it’s an awesome offseason for Arizona.

With Star, H Phillips and Oliver they need a 4th DT to play 30-40% of the plays. That's where you get a player like Cory Liuget for a lower price, a $1.5-2 million guy. And whoever you get will have a particular strength (vs. run or pass) and you strategically play them in the situations to take advantage of their strengths.

 

I think they did that with Jordan Phillips and maximized his results and that led to both good productivity on the field and salary requirements that made it wrong to keep him, because now he's being paid to be an above average all around contributor and he will not do that in AZ (as many have pointed out he is not good vs. the run). 

 

This is an example of good cap management.

Give me Reader and an OT and I'll be happy with what they accomplished in FA.

Happy for Phillips but I don't even know that i'd offer close to that if i'm Buffalo.  He may be worth it for some other teams, but not when we have Oliver and Harry as young DT's in need of playing time.

Jordan Phillips is the perfect example of what Sean Mcdermott echoed at the combine, "come to buffalo to be the best version of yourself". Phillips went from being a bust/cancer in locker room arguing with the head coach in Miami to being a better teammate, more productive player in Buffalo which in turn got him this new contract!

 

He tweeted his way out of Buffalo.
