Oh please sweet baby Jesus, get it done Beane. Get it done right now

You don’t trade JJ Watt if you’re the Texans, you release him so he can go where he wants. It’s the classy move.

I think I figured this out.    1:14 AM Feb 24, 2021   1+1+4+2+4+2+0+2+1=17   Josh Allen!

He’s played 16 games in 2 of the last 3 years. 


I stand corrected. Thanks.

The Diana Russini report is all I'm going off of. 

If it's true, and there are offers for 15 or 16 million per year, I can't imagine him taking much less.

I think Russini is connected and legit in what she reports

 

The devil is always in the details - how much is guaranteed, how much is tied up in incentives, etc.

 

But, I don't see how we can get into that ballpark of offer without stripping ourselves at other key positions critical for success, such as OL and LB.

We were one win from the Super Bowl.... JJ Watt would've put the necessary pressure on Mahomes to make him look like SB Mahomes. Also would've made Brady pay on route to our Lombardi

What if the Jets were the team that offered him 15-16M a year?  Or another non SB contender.  If Tenn, GB and Buff are all in the 11-12M range, my money is that he’d sign with the contender for less.

Agreed. I’d rather see them put the money toward re-signing Daryl Williams.

 

Protecting Allen is my top priority, and I’d hate to see them let a very good 29 year old right tackle walk away just to have to turn around and use a premium draft asset to replace him.

This has a feel like he’s not getting the offers he wants from the teams he wants to go to.  If he was that in demand, this would be a done deal.  

 

That's a point.  He could be getting that offer, but not from the teams he most wants.

Attison just got 10 million last year, 15.5 for a future HOF isn’t unreasonable 

 

2 year, 31 million 

or 

3 year, 46 million

 

Name is Addison and this year the salary cap went DOWN by 30 million. Players are not going to be making market value signings.

Here’s a question... what would Addison get in this market if the Bills released him?  How about Butler or Jefferson?  

Maybe 6-7mil he's not that good.

riddle me this.. IF he is so good how come a team does not have him locked?

 

Is it 

 

A. Cause he is asking for to much?

B. He just aint that good no more?

C. Injury History?

 

I say All of the above. The thing is he is not in a hurry, he has time.

 

His age and him Injured to much is not going to get him far fast. He wants the money, Live cheap and retire on his last contract. Just like every other star vet his age. I cant blame him for any of this but is he going to give this team 1000%?

 

A question worth discussion

 

Maybe it's more of a Watt thing? He wants to take his time? Multiple reports have said that a dozen teams are interested

why should he be in a rush to sign anywhere when there are supposedly multiple contending teams interested in him?

 

Keep playing one team off against the other and bumping up the price... Although I think he probably should get the deal done within the next week or he might risk some of the teams moving onto other targets...

 

In relation to your second question.. he will give his all but his new team isnt getting the player he was 5 years ago ( obviously..).. Personally, Ive cooled on him during the past couple of weeks and think the Bills should move in a different ( ie younger and healthier) direction...

Yeah I’m not too concerned about the regular season, I’m pretty sure this team is making the playoffs with or without him. Definitely need more impact players in the big games though. If Beane is sure he will step up big time in the post-season, go get him.

It is when someone like watt can’t stay healthy and hasn’t played a full season in 3 years

https://www.buffalorumblings.com/platform/amp/2021/2/25/22301170/j-j-watt-reportedly-has-an-offer-for-15-million-per-season-per-report I wonder if this was us. I’d think it would be stupid to pay him this kind of money especially when he hasn’t been able to stay healthy for 3-4 years
