Bills FA rumors thread

So who would you consider Big time for a realistic trade or FA acquisition? 

 

Gronk. He is someone we could realistically get and at a decent price. I would love to get Von Miller but I don't think it works for us cap wise.

Splash offseason:

 

Sign Kirk and Gronk

Trade the first for McCaffrey and use him as a hybrid slot receiver 

 

Tickets will be sold.

 


I love this but I’d like to trade for Saquan Barkley of McCaffrey. Would be a lethal offense if we get some OL help in the draft.

No to CMC, especially if we are getting Kirk who would be your slot guy. Would rather bring back McKenzie to help there if anything.

While I wouldn’t hate a Gronk acquisition. He doesn’t exactly give us much more than we already have with Knox. I feel like money elsewhere would help the team more. 

 

I think with both Gronk and Knox on the field it would add a unique dynamic and create matchup nightmares against opposing defenses especially with Davis and Diggs already in the picture. Throw in Beasely (or whoever might replace him) and you are talking about an offense that will be right up there with KC jockeying for the #1 scoring unit all year.

Target-for-target, Knox had a better season. 

 

Yeah he had a higher ypc and more TD's..........but Ertz had higher catch and yardage numbers.

 

Gronk blew BOTH Ertz and Knox out of the water with his 14.6 ypc and near 70 yards per game receiving............that's why Gronk is the only "star" TE in this free agent market.

Per today's Daily News the Jets are expected to release WR Jamison Crowder. Any interest?

 

 

He's an unrestricted free agent.

 

Yes if super cheap and better options fall thru.

Yes, because of an increased number of targets.  With the same number of targets Knox would have more catches, yards and TDs than Ertz and more catches and TDs than Goonk.

No, that isn’t splashy enough. While it’s a good signing, that isn’t bringing any more excitement than we’ve already been experiencing. 
Mack, CMC, and Barkley all bring that “It’s on like Donkey Kong” vibe. Gronk isn’t exactly that. 

 

 

Gronk is the only player you mentioned who played at an elite level last year.

 

He's the only star in a very deep TE free agent class.

 

Even if he wasn't a native WNY'er, one of the NFL's biggest celebrities and a long time rival he would be a bigger splash to the average Bills fan than those 3.

Christian Kirk had 9.5 yards per target last season..........Stefon Diggs had 7.5 yards per target...........players tend to get more targets and production because they get open.

 

Gronk was far better than Knox last season.........he's in a much different class as a blocker(elite) and he averaged 14.6 yards per catch.........and has averaged 15 yards per catch for HIS CAREER.   This is why he is maybe the greatest TE of all time.    Dawson Knox is good and seems to be ascending but they have nothing behind him.

Crowder is a fantastic route runner and has very solid hands.  His downside is he's rarely healthy.

wonder who the mystery vet is that is rumored to have approached the Bills?  

Many people seem to think it's Gronk. I don't think so, as both he and his agent were in talks with Beane last year.

I think it's Allen Robinson- as both he and his agent were at the combine this year. Robinson's already been compensated well and his legacy has been marred by horrendous QB play. Josh Allen will solve that  in spades.
