Source: LB Matt Milano looking for “top dollar” in FA

Good luck with that,  he is not worth anything more than 8-10 mllion which is more than fair IMO,  he misses tackles and is not even a pro bowl player.  I think he is good but not great and once you start paying good players crazy money your roster will never be able to add talent and improve.  Just look at Kelce in our championship game,  if this guy was great why could he not shut Kelce down?. 

 

So were going to pay him more money and still have no player good enough to cover KELCE, let him walk and just upgrade the position. I said before the championship game if Milano can shut down Kelve then i would pay whatever he wants.  The fact is he could not even contain him,  our LB position is weak and one of worse at covering TE'S in all of the NFL.   Like i said 8-10 mllion or let him go,  the nonsense of culture is BS TALK.  Unless you're locked in a closet everyone knows Allen & our offence carried the team this season. 

Edmunds also struggled badly on Kelce. If I had a choice between Edmunds and Milano I’d go Milano hands down. Unfortunately they don’t have that choice. 
 

Still, the defense struggled all year with and without Milano. They need to get better upfront fist and foremost. Let him walk.

Top dollar? Bills fans to Milano  

Well it was nice having you in a Buffalo for these years

Matt Milano should do what is best for him.  The Buffalo Bills should do what is best for them.  Those won't necessarily line up.

This my point,  why pay big money when neither guy could even slow Kelce down.  Upgrade the position if your paying big bucks

Well he shouldn't get it from Buffalo, hopefully for him he finds what he wants.

 

Our lack of ability to cover TEs (all TEs not just kelce, we were nearly worst in the league against them) doesn't scream keep the band together. Get Edmunds some help, Edmunds isn't all pro level but he definitely has potential.

Wins get you top dollar.

 

I don’t know if the value is there for Matt, but he may be our second or third best defensive player.

 

this is perhaps true, but we don't have many "elite/top dollar" defensive players.

Milano is our better LB and if Edmunds was a FA first I think we’d keep Milano over him. 
 

Just bad timing.

Who do you recommend that can stop Kelce?

Rough year to hit FA for the first time. 

 

If there's no indication fans can return to stadiums where it makes real money for teams, I expect most of the league to mind those expenses again this year and keep the powder dry.

I don't even want to pay Milano fair dollar, simply because I don't think it makes sense to pay two linebackers big money with a top tier QB1 contract hitting the books.   

Definitely not on board with paying him top dollar for the position.  

 

If Edmunds is who McDermott wants to hitch his wagon to, pay him next year and sign a cheaper vet or draft a LB or two to compete for the other spot.  

I believe our brand is higher,  we should no longer be paying huge money for average talent.  We should get the same type of deals the Patriots were getting on solid vet players. Enough of this overpaying nonsense,

Either Beane or McDermott said in their post season press conference that Milano deserved the chance to do the best for him but, budget wise, we wouldn’t be able to pay him what he probably deserves so they must be planning for this.

 

I think he can do a job for us if he returns but otherwise best of luck to him.

I would need to look at who is available but you can cross our two guys off that list for sure and your not getting past KC unless you stop him & Hill

Please, please stop.  Milano is NOT, I repeat, NOT better than Edmunds.  People here are ridiculous to think so.

The way anyone beats Kansas City in full flow is offensively, by winning a high scoring game. Unless lucky enough to catch them on an off day they won’t be kept to a low score.

well Cody Ford comes back to the right side so I think he slides to RT so the RG is the open starter (I expect Ike B to be tendered brought back as well at LG).  Feliciano at RG is cheaper than a RT and he can slide to backup C - so the analysis is Ford versus Williams at RT...Wiliiams had 9 penalties and 7 sacks at RT last season.  PFF had Williams as the 40th best FA avail with Milano as the 37th FWIW

Replacing Williams with Ford at RT is a step down.   Unless Ford develops better tackle mobility and stays healthy- two things he has yet to do.  
 

Replacing Milano with a rookie could also be a step down.  

 

I hope at least one of Williams or Milano can be retained.

If he could stay healthy, MAYBE.

 

But he hasn't shown that he can.  Could be bad luck, or it could be his style of play, but it's too risky to break the bank.  

 

Would love to keep him, but it seems unlikely.

Myself personally, I think its important a team keeps the core group of players that it deems most valuable to avoid regression. I put Milano in the top 3 MVP on D IMO.
