I think we can be upset at the likely notion......due to the timing of the signing............that he got more than league minimum...........which, like with Siran Neal last week, will cut into what they can spend.

 

The reason why Beane has himself in worse cap shape than when he inherited the team..........despite a QB technically still on his rookie deal..........is a high volume of overpays.    

 

Be it the Star Lotulelei or Trent Murphy type contracts or the mountain of $6M-$3M aav deals for veteran backups and role players.  

 

 


 

Sure. Just make no mention whatsoever of the cap being lowered by $20M due to COVID. That has nothing to do with it 🙄

They need to rely more on their scouting and draft to fill ST and backup roles and use their cap to add a difference maker or two.

 

If they aren't going to be willing to kick cap hits down the road...........as Beane has indicated they won't(we'll see)............then they need to be more frugal with the role players.

 

 

 

I don't mind the Kumerow signing, but I would agree that with Neal/Kumerow, it's a legit argument to wonder why Matakevich/Jones are still on the roster.

The NFL and XFL teamed up and the NFL is using the XFL as a league to test out rules basically. They are going to collaborate.

 

Majority of major injures happen on special teams plays, they are going to do everything they can to reduce that.

 

 

 

The XFL is slated to return in February 2023. Under the partnership, the XFL will function as a sort of "petri dish" for the NFL to experiment with, XFL president Russ Brandon said to ESPN's Kevin Seifert.

 

We shall see how much of a rules test this is.  I can't find many details.

How thick are you??  Go back and re-read what I said, I never once referred to JK as above average anything, stop being “that guy” on purpose…, 

 

Go Bills!!!

Your killing me,😁 “this better be for league minimum “  or what? Are you gonna go on a rant, and subject all of us to your musings…?,  nuthin but  luv dude, but really…? Beane is in a tight financial position, he needs a hand full of above average players at important positions, he’s not giving JK the keys to the city, 

 

Go Bills!!!

Lotta people getting worked up without seeing contract specifics.  Probably a very modest contract with little or no guaranteed money. 

 

 

Well if it's $2.5M-$3M aav..........then after deducting the league minimum that will reduce their cap space by around $2M.      I would expect the Bills will be shopping around actual starting jobs to veteran CB's and DT's for around $5M aav.........crying poor.........so anything over league minimum for Kumerow might be the difference between getting a good veteran at those positions or not.

Punts and kickoffs can't be dispensed with soon enough.

 

All they do is keep non-players.......like Haack, Kumerow, Matakevich and Taiwan...........employed while giving us extra tv timeouts after touchbacks, fair catches and balls rolling to a stop while the clock runs.

 

 

 

Sad, but true.

Used be an exciting facet of game. Punchers chance on kicks or punts if you were trailing & had a great special team returner. Same with onside kicks ☹️

Or maybe I don't like wasting what little cap we have on special teams only players who can't do much of anything like Tyler Matakevich

 

 

 

You realize we need depth players, right? Wouldn't you rather have depth players that contribute on special teams? I don't understand your rationale.

That is irrelevant.........the cap was lowered for all teams.

 

Going into the 2019 offseason they had $90M in cap space.

 

After the 2020 season they already couldn't even afford to address any of the issues they claimed were responsible for their AFCCG loss.

 

He's had a few notable good deals with his own veterans(Dawkins and White).........and the bargain 1 year deal for Daryl Williams............but otherwise he hasn't done well wrt managing the salary cap.

Like I said  “he’s not giving JK the keys to the city”.  What makes you think that I feel JK is above average anything? Two separate concepts going on it that post, Jeesh dude have another cup of coffee, but this time don’t make it decafe…,

I just randomly looked up Jones stats after seeing this. He has 223 career rushing yards over 11 seasons. 

 

That's pretty incredible. 

 

Guy hung around 11 years as a special teamer/reserve RB.

Elite special teams guys but you kick it into the end zone to waste no time on the precious clock. Sorry I went there. That was my initial thought when I read your post. I guess I'm still bitter...

So your contention is that this signing will facilitate the acquisition of more above average players at important positions, in a year with limited cap space. Got it.
