I don't think it'll be that much, but look into the future. The Bills don't have anchor contracts. They also don't have much investment in the defense long-term other than White and Milano. Those contracts aren't exactly huge either.


They have some big decisions on Edmunds and Oliver coming very quickly

I would still love to trade Edmonds, and sign Wagner for less than Edmunds’ fifth year price...

 

You ‘kill two birds with one stone’ with those deals...👍

Highly doubt the Bills’ PR team is clued in enough to be teasing FUTURE moves…

PR team is generally informed as things are being wrapped up. They need some time to prep. 
 

There are typically alerts sent out to specifics staff members and departments in advance of things being announced publicly. 
 

Not saying that’s what is going on here, but they probably know sooner than most beat reporters.

Ideally, yes. 

But Wagner has not made less than the Edmunds option year since 2017. I feel like the likelihood of that working out is low.

I don't know about signing Wagner, but if we do sign Jones or trade for Hunter, I honestly don't know how we can keep Edmunds.  I'm sure we will because the Bills can't quit him, but just from a cap perspective... We have big money tied up in Allen, Diggs, Tre, Dawkins etc.. Next year we will have to tie big money up in Oliver and Knox.  If we also have big money tied up in an EDGE, where/how are we paying Edmunds?  Just logically speaking..  Where there's a will, there's a way, but I'd hate to lose him for nothing if we don't/can't re-sign him.

I have another prediction. Nether Chandler Jones nor Danielle Hunter are coming to Buffalo. I am very confident on this bet

You are on.  My guess is Beanes first choice is Hunter, and he’s been trying to pry him away from Vikes.  I’m guessing we’ve had discussions with Chandler.  And will sign him if we can’t get Hunter.

 

to best KC, we have to get to Mahomes.  Espeneza is not cutting it, and is a big hole at Edge

Trading for Danielle Hunter does seem like much more of a Brandon Beane move than signing Chandler Jones.

 

If it takes our 1st Round Pick, that certainly makes roster building more difficult, but a long term locked up 27 year old premier pass rusher seems to be more along the lines of what he'd want over a 32 year old premier pass rusher on a 2-3 year contract.

He brought in Addison a couple years ago at a similar age of Jones. I like Hunters upside but don't see them giving up a #1 draft pick for him. I also don't think we will end up with Jones just due to cap space. We have drafted 3 DE's in the last couple years and could see them making a run at Nassib now that he was released.

The Bills have to pay Edmunds the 5th year option year and don't have an option to cut him.   The only way to get otu of that salary is to trade him for peanuts.
