If he’s healthy, our defense is drastically better with him on the field 

 

Drastically better?

Could we see an EJ vs Sammy Watkins matchup versus KC.  It's been a strange trip for both those dudes since 2017 preseason trade.

I believe it was an injury settlement 

Idk why we keep signing this guy, he can’t stay healthy, I liked him in 2017 but again he only plays well when healthy and he has a hard time doing that

And to me, this is why the draft is not going to hold the same level of importance as it has in the past. It will be more of a crapshoot than ever before and unlikely that any one will be caught up quickly. That’s why running backs and edge players make sense, because they can acclimate more quickly than say a corner or linebacker

I was just going to say that the more players who know the systems in place, the better. Hopefully there is a season. If there is, there will be reduced prep time. Teams with new coaches and systems or new players who don’t know it will be at a disadvantage. Hopefully Diggs learns it quickly but it’s still better than a rookie trying to learn how to l play in the NFL AND a new system.

They're like one of those annoying couples who are always splitting up and getting back together

Yeah, but only to a degree. She IS back on the market on occasion..

 

Anyway, Welcome Back EJ!

No I was making a point. We signed and cut this guy last year because he couldn’t figure out how to stay healthy. We’re signing someone who’s body looks completely broken down

This is great, him and Norman would be a good duo opposite White. Even if they split time it's a good thing. If healthy and Norman back to a solid starter, EJ playing nickel makes for a scary secondary.

I can't hate it because he was so good for us when healthy.

Have you looked at his body? Do you know that it "looks completely broken down"? He might have just had very bad luck. We have five solid cornerbacks before him so I don't see what's the harm in bringing in someone who knows the system and has played in it very well when he's been healthy. If he gets hurt, we're already practically playing with house money.

It was an injury settlement. Here’s a tip, stop ‘making your points’. People think you’re clueless. When you post, you remove all doubt

No that’s alright I’ll continue making my points, thanks. I don’t like the signing as they could’ve looked for someone else

Love it, just a kick the tires low risk high reward move. 

I thought he might beat out Kevin Johnson last year for a roster spot.  Two injury prone guys....who lasted...Johnson...his first complete season in a number of years.

Love this signing.

 

Hes not being counted upon to be a starter so he fills a tremendous upgrade as a depth role. 

 

Plus one less need at the draft!

That’s an interesting point  , do you think drafting a CB in the 2nd is still a possibility or the focus will be more on offense? Maybe a RB , WR , OL ?

The Norman pickup was perplexing. 

 

At best, Norman is a contributor in a nickle or dime role.   At worst, he's a $1.5 million (dead cap) insurance policy who can easily be released or ride the bench in a player/coach/mentor role.   

 

https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/buffalo-bills/josh-norman-9964/

 

In 2019, Gaines had a one-year contract for $2.1 million.    He'll likely make slightly less this year, so maybe another $300,000 or so dead cap if released.

 

Team Contract Type Status Year Signed Yrs Total APY Guarantees Amount Earned % Earned Effective APY
Rams Drafted Traded 2014 4 $2,327,672 $581,918 $107,672 $1,460,672 62.8% $486,891
Bills Drafted Expired 2014 4 $2,327,672 $581,918 $107,672 $1,797,000 77.2% $1,797,000
Browns UFA Expired 2018 1 $4,000,000 $4,000,000 $1,400,000 $3,531,250 88.3% $3,531,250
Bills UFA Terminated 2019 1 $2,100,000 $2,100,000 $250,000 $350,000 16.7% $0

 

Seems like reasonable bets on both guys...

Reminds me of Percy Harvin. The guy was always hurt, but for some reason we just kept giving him loads of cash. Seems like Pegula is fond of doing that with certain players.

You can bring 90 players to camp...you have to start signing players...he could still not make the team

I thought for sure we were going to target a DB in round 2 before this signing. Now I'm not so sure. 

 

Our biggest hole right now is a competent backup RB and I've been pining to draft a guy to challenge or even supplant Motor. 

 

Dobbins is the guy I want at 54. But I'd be happy with Akers or possibly Dillon. Akers and Dobbins would both be upgrades on Singletary. 

 

Highly unlikely Swift or Taylor are there. 

 

It also makes sense with the ability to carry extra OL with the new roster rules that we shouldn't rule out OL as our pick.
