Bring Shady back for 1 more year?


Recommended Posts

This is largely tongue in cheek with shades of seriousness, but I was watching Shady this morning on GMFB being interviewed and it seems like he really embraced the "veteran mentor" role with Tampa Bay, where his contract has expired.

 

Based off what Beane and McDermott have said publicly they still appear to have a lot of faith in both Singletary and Moss.  And they also like the guys behind them.  Yeldon's contract is up and so the team will probably add at least another RB.  Shady claims he still has something left in the tank and plans to play and, at the very least, will be fresh from having almost an entire year off in Tampa.  Last year with the Chiefs he was pretty productive with over 100 carries and 4.6 YPC along with 28 receptions.

 

That's a helluva lot more than we got out of Yeldon this year.

 

McCoy has 2 straight years winning a Super Bowl ring and he said on GMFB that he wants to play another year, but it needs to be with a contender because he can't go from playing on 2 Super Bowl Teams to crap (my word, not his).  He already has a relationship with Josh and other players on the Bills.  There's obviously familiarity.  I actually think the "hometown discount" thing applies here to an aging veteran who would already be pretty cheap.

 

And if he can be used as a 3rd down back out of the backfield for blitz pickups and receptions (that he' might actually catch in AFC Championship games unlike Singletary... BAAAZIIIINNNNGGG!!  :w00t:) then it's just an added bonus.

 

Now, I really don't think this will happen.  I don't even know what the relationship is like between him and Beane and McDermott and I kinda doubt OBD will want to bring him back.  But given our apparent commitment to Moss and Singletary (much to our dismay, perhaps), maybe Shady shouldn't be out of the question and we should consider letting him come home to chase a 3rd straight ring....

Don't give Brandon any ideas. He loves slow running backs. Half expecting Daboll to be signed to a player / coach contract and used as the 3rd down back next season. 

I wonder if Joe Ferguson is doing anything or if he would consider playing backup QB?    https://www.footballdb.com/players/joe-ferguson-fergujo01

No.

 

Yes written tongue and check this is a good post by OP.

 

So he got on two Super Bowl winning teams.  Do you think Shady was the driving force in those wins, or even materially contributed?

 

Can we please stop with the bizarre love affair we have with certain ex-Bills, most notably Ryan Fitzpatrick..

Shady was done in his last year with the Bills. We might as well see what Cribbs is doing. If Shady wants to come back to Buffalo and McBeane approve then I wouldn't mind him coming back as an RB coach but not as a player.

This is what all of us thought, but Shady was noticeably better and more productive in a more limited role in the following year with the Chiefs.

In 2021 he is done.  At this point he has definitely lost more than a step. I wouldn't mind him as a RB coach. He definitely could teach Singletary and Moss a thing or two.  If the Bills want to move on from them then their is always the draft.
