Considering Hyde missed our last game trading damaged goods isn't going to to look good. I'm not sure why we'd trade him as think Marlowe was sub par replacing him. He also isn't breaking the bank in terms of cap. 

Agree.  Just a thought as he has struggled this year.  If you potentially replace him on off-season getting something for him now makes sense.

Ok To recap my the intel from the little Bird. Bills have made calls on Engram, Adkins and Mercilus Do want to move Murphy Labeled all picks except 1st and 2nd tradable.   Oth

Not sure. Just started hearing the Hayden Rumors today from the local rumor guys.  ok Update on the Birdy Info.    Mercilus was talked Texans didn’t want to take Murphy’s contract back (a

I see.

 

I'm not interested in Engram. Going for another Tight End is far less important than going for defense.

 

Pursuing Atkins & Mercilus makes a lot more sense. Won't be easy, but they have to try.

I think the opposite. 

 

You are getting zero from the Tight End position right now. 

 

We might as well be the Patriots and dress one TE on gameday.

Still crickets from One Bills Drive.....I would really just like to see Beane make a bold move similar to when he traded for Kelvin Benjamin a few years ago even though that ended up backfiring and being a major waste of draft pick.

 

Just give me a big, thick thighed DT and it could very well impact this teams fortunes and where they go the rest of the season even if the new player isn't able to play until next week at the earliest.

I loved the Knox pick and I have really wanted him to turn a corner.  He definitely has talent - especially making difficult catches and he's shown the ability to be a wrecking machine after the catch.  But his dropsies are a problem and I am concerned that he has not shown any improvement yet.

 

I would love to keep him and love for him to get better.  I'm just skeptical at this point.

 

 

I understand that. Let's remember that Knox has only been in the league for one+ seasons, and he's missed a number of games this year.

I find really interesting that we have problems to make any move due to cap space. I checked sportrac and saw contracts we have but it is still weird that we don't have any cap space even though we don't have single player over 15m cap hit. It makes me wonder what we are going to do when Tre's, Dawkins' and Allen's contracts start counting.

 

On a positive note, Edmunds is trying to save us from cap hell this season :)

Most recall entering free agency we had tons of room. That Beane had done an amazing job clearing up cap space. Here is what happened:

 

Addison $10M

Butler $7.5M

Jefferson $7M

Klein $6M

Norman $6M

 

That is close to $40M...

I said it yesterday and I'll say it again, it will be devastating if he doesn't make something happen. The players know they're short and need help. The fans know it. And, I suspect the coaches know it.

They at least need some depth at LB and DT.

Gotta remember it is all about structure though.  Nothing there long term to kill us for years to come.

Let's also remember that Beane gives out a lot of front loaded contracts. I highly doubt that Beane put us in a position to be in Cap Hell.

True. Just sucks we need some help now and seemingly are limited by some overly paid and underproducing contracts and mostly to ex-panthers.

Why would you trade for a guy that’s hurt tho? If that’s the case then let’s make Ertz happen

Because he isn't going to be hurt forever.  And an Injury can be used to as a bargaining chip to lower compensation.

Random one.   Do we take a page from bellicheats book and trade Hyde?  Hes clearly lost a little but is still perceived as a top safety.  Patriots have been great at shedding these types of players over the years. 


 

They usually had someone to slot in that could perform at or near the level of the vet being traded. Marlowe played well, but I don’t trust him, and we have little behind that. Besides, our defense is in dire need of leadership just now.

I would be surprised if that was the sticking point 

 

 

It sounds like cap space is a huge sticking point though........which is I believe what the OP meant.

 

Not going to get much done for 5th-7th round picks if you want the other team to eat $3.5M of some expiring contract as well.

 

Beane has been clumsy and careless with cap space.........$3M too much here,  $5M too much there..........and that certainly limited what he could do now because the big motivation to trade most of these players is to save money and create cap space.

Devastating?   It’s a game.  There is nothing devastating about it.
