What about this Deon Lacy guy?

Recommended Posts

Saw some playing time against Miami - 67% of the ST snaps

Just activated again

https://www.buffalobills.com/news/bills-elevate-deon-lacey-from-practice-squad

 

30 years old

Been kicking around the league and the CFL for 7 years

 

Does this mean they're worried they won't get a full game out of Milano and they need to backfill on ST? 

Or maybe just trying to limit his action by not playing him on ST?

Milano played 30-40% of the ST snaps last year

Is McD playing games or does this mean Milano is doubtful?

 

Lacey is an OLB - so cant be in there to spell Edmunds / Dodson.

Del'Shawn Phillips is out, also. I wouldn't think this has any bearing on Milano's status.

This is to backfill Phillips on teams I am pretty certain. 

 

Think it is good news for Edmunds and Milano.

Hopefully for Special Teams and a back-up/depth for OLB

Hopefully!!!  Might not be a fun game if both Milano and Edmunds are out

Makes sense. 

Would also make sense that if Milano and Edmunds are "playing themselves healthy" they might want to spare them some ST snaps.  Edmunds hasn't played much ST - 15% of the snaps or so - but Milano last year played about 1/3 or a bit more.

Deon Lacey is a very good ST LB, so he may give us a lift there. Even if Milano starts, he has a hammy, so it’s very possible he doesn’t last long. Edmunds never lost the red jersey all week and no one has speculated as to what’s wrong with him so I put him at 50/50 because while he was in red, he practiced all three days at least some. Both will talk it over with trainers and coaches Sunday morning. I’m hoping for at least one to play. If both play, I think the Bills could shock theworld and win easy.... 31-20. Pretty boastful comment for a guy who hasn’t posted lately.....but Allen is a force of nature and Miami’s O played better than everyone thinks last week.

This.  Lacey may play some special teams, as I assume Delshawn Phillips did, and he's available for snaps on defense, but he's motly insurance in cas Milano and/or Edmunds can't go or are on a snap count.  Phillips would have had that role if he were healthy.  Lacey is pretty athletic.  He just never was able to elevate his game enough to get named as a starter.

I been following him for years, all the way back to Canada. Has a knack for the big play.

 

He is still the same player IMO

Am I the only one surprised by the bold? That seems pretty high for such an important and 3 down guy.

No it's not surprising to me

 

Historically deep and good teams have some starters on specialities. Bob woods was a st demon

 

Milano absolutely can play st in circumstances

I was, after I looked it up.  
 

Poyer is another 3 down player who has been playing 1/3 of the special team snaps.

Joe B doesn’t think so:
