Cuz complainers have to have some bull#### source for hopes of adding cred to their post

 

how about this Williams as early as 3 years ago was a very good ol

 

So apparently he gave up 12 sacks last year.  

 

If ever there were a reason to "complain"...

starters:  Dawkins - Spain - Morse - Ford - Williams

 

backups: Nsekhe, Long, Feliciano, Bates, Boettger, Salako

 

This is a really solid group! They lack elite talent but have outstanding depth. Can the Bills even find a rookie OL starter in the draft outside the top 53 picks? Can any OL draft pick outside the top 85 picks even crack this roster's top 8?

I would be surprised if they draft an OL early now. Developmental practice squad type later in day 3 I can see. The battle between Bates and Boettger for the 9th and final roster spot there promises to be a good one.

I think it’s really premature to declare Williams the starter at RT. I’m sure he’ll be part of the competition though.

I didn't know the Panthers played last week.

 

Thanks for telling us.

 

😀

Sorry but a twelve hour shift in 911 can make a person imperfect.  I meant last season.  Thanks for pointing in out.

I don't see any way Feliciano is benched after how he performed last season. I think it's a 3 way competition between Williams, Ford, and Nskhe at RT. All will make the roster and be used. Especially with Williams and Ford's ability to slide inside.

Oof. Your hard work is GREATLY AND SINCERELY (I'm not kidding, for once) appreciated, but it's no reason to hop on a cross over a misused word.

I can't see them keeping 11 OL.  And I'm not sure how (Victor) Salako figures to win a backup job.

Feliciano isn't losing that spot unless he's playing C. He was a beast all year and his versatility is great. What a steal he was last off season

That's a deep , versatile group of OL. Wow. Not too shabby

Woah!   That is essentially a freebee contract.   

 

There is virtually no risk to the Bills, other than taking away snaps from someone else in training camp...

I was way off thinking they offered him $5.5M.  Great deal, especially if he can regain his 2017 form.

 

I'd say that they have around $19.5M in cap room accounting for the top-53.

$2.5 mil. Beane!! such a great contract for the Bills. I mean this is at worse a player that can be cut for next to nothing and at best he starts at RT if necessary.

Almost an identical deal to the one signed by Spain last offseason.

I was not hoping on a cross. Stating a fact and thanking him.

I wonder if McBeane isn't as happy with Feliciano as a lot of us think.

 

Which means with Williams signing, are the Bills in the market for drafting an IOL with one of their first 3 picks?

Not sure it says anything about JF and if Williams is viewed as the guy to be the starting RT, you kick Ford inside.  They should be drafting OT.

i'd say more unhappy with nietchke and being injured.

I thought he played out of position at Left GUARD last year?

 

Maybe they moved him around? I know the Panthers OL was a mess last year and constantly shifting. Weird they wouldnt just put him back at RT to have at least one solid position. But maybe they figured Williams was good enough to move around and that was their best shot.
