Played in 16 games in 2020, starting 1.  5.5 sacks, 1 Forced Fumble, 2 Fumble Recoveries, & 15 QB hits.

Gonna hang out here until isee what @ScottLaw has to say about this...

So we came into March with these obvious holes in our roster:    WLB- Signed Milano RT- Signed DWill G- Signed Feliciano/Ike DL- Added Star, Signed Obeda WR- Signed Sande

Have the financials been published for this signing as yet?

 

Apologies if its posted somewhere already. I havent seen it as yet.

 

Thanks.

 

It's a 1-year deal worth up to $2.2M.

Thanks Doc. Potentially excellent value.

 

Also good news from a TV coverage standpoint for UK based Bills fans I think... the sky sports coverage often talked up Obada and had him on for a few interviews throughout last season. Having him and (maybe) Wade on the roster next season will mean plenty of Bills related discussion and hopefully live games.

Also wondering if Star will tie up more folks in the trenches that our interior DL did last year, meaning a little more space for the ends.  

 

 

 

All Star ties up is cap space.

hoping star having the year off gives his body time to recover like ingcognito and he comes in as a force.  would absolutely help this guy get after the qb.  our rotation is nice

Why would they?  Are they at the 90 player limit?

 

 

Look up!

 

 

Anyway, I like how the Bills PR department felt they had to phonetically spell this kids name for the fans.

 

lol

The devil is always in the details of the "up to"

 

Yup.  The most important takeaway is that at-most it's $2.2M, which is peanuts.

and that defense wasn’t exactly dominant, so it isn’t like he benefitted from a great surrounding cast.

 

 

Ive heard of this for Cougar addiction... do you think it transfers?...

Cougars are great! They always pick up the check.

I don’t understand people’s issue with former panthers. If they were there when Beane was he obviously knows and likes them because he scouted them. 

 

Efe Obada didn't overlap Beane or McDermott.  He was signed at the end of May, 2017 as an international pathways player.

Beane took the GM job in Buffalo at the beginning of May, 2017.

 

There are two links to the team:

1) Mario Addison who joined the Bills last season and who played next to Obada in 2018-2019

2) DL coach Eric Washington who joined the Bills last season

 

If anyone should know what Obada is capable of that would be Washington, who coached him for 2 yrs.

It would not shock me if Beane was involved in scouting Obada only a month or so before leaving Carolina.

Thanks but I already knew that. I made a post about it a week or so ago. My post is about the people that constantly whine about former panthers coming here
