If I missed an Edmunds thread, then mods please merge.

 

I didn't see anything here, but only rejoined this group maybe 3 weeks ago.  We are getting closer and closer to the draft, and RESPECTFULLY was asking the knowledgeable fans a few questions.

 

smh...


 

Dude, you’re kidding right?  There have been like 20 threads and parts of threads on him.  Go do the search button.  Type in. edmunds and you’re going to feel silly as this exact topic has been talked to death, been on WGR, NFLR, NFLN, etc.

This post is all sorts of wrong.

 

They already picked up Edmunds 5th year option last year.  He is playing on that now!!!  So basically your entire first paragraph is wrong.  
 

If it is telling that they haven’t picked up his option, but they have picked it up - does that make it equally telling they like him?  What pray tell does it tell us now that you have learned the option was exercised - just like Oliver’s.

 

The 2nd paragraph also holds little water as the Bills FO have moved on from various draft picks as needed if they are not up to speed - the problem is they have drafted very well (best in the league by several metrics) and therefore have not had to move on from many picks.  
 

 

 

 

 

 

Yep , my error!  I was up all night as some one hacked my email and also was in my Amazon account which got shut down!  Pretty stressful. A hacker was literally buying things while I was on the phone with Amazon reps !  They couldn’t stop it and froze my account until I got my email secured at 7 am today! So I admit , I forgot about edmunds 5 th year!
 

I apologize. I was thinking more about contract extensions, thanks for correcting me!  I do believe tho edmunds is overrated and time will tell this year. I do think there is a difference tho as I think Oliver was a certain to be picked up but delayed until they had cap space. Not sure edumunds situation is more than one more hedge  to evaluate long term viability and I think Oliver , who is more impactful will get a second contract. Not sure edmunds will.

 

Imo, easier to replace a LB , than a DT who can rush.  I was just thinking if Edmunds was living up to expectations , it might have made more sense to extend  ( like Josh , if he is the def “qb”)rather than ride  the fence  , as his price might only go up if he somehow finally evolves to be that  guy. They have drafted well, and they can’t pay everyone. I think another similar year and they could easily replace him as his ceiling may have been reached and a guy with a high floor might be just as good rather than continuing to wait to see if he can raise his ceiling. Thanks for the kind correction , I was def in error. My main thought was its a prove year for edmunds ; Beane stated they always intended to do Oliver which seemed more definitive he will be here long term. Not so sure about Tremain unless it reallY comes together this year. Best wishes! Sorry for the error.

I don't think the OP is a troll, strictly. I think he's young and/or hopeful/eager. No cynicism detected. This thread isn't trolling. It's obliviousness.

I didn’t want to say it, but that was my thought when he started such a dumb thread.  I always try and give people the benefit of the doubt up front PRIMETIME.

 

I'm as cruel and unforgiving of ill intentioned discourse as anyone. Sometimes you just have to nod and smile and go on with your life without punching down.

We need to replace this guy, he is Sooooooooooooooooooooooo   average,  the draft is our friend if we can get LB to replace this guy, but it's doubtful.  But we need other D help at CB first and foremost. 

 

I would take DEVIN LLOYD, UTAH  or  NAKOBE DEAN, GEORGIA but we need a CB first round so we are stuck with Tremaine for another year.

 

Again, don't be shocked if he's a former Buffalo Bill after tomorrow night.

 

Makes too much sense especially if there is any real steam behind the rumors that the Bills want to trade up into the top 10. Edmunds may be the perfect asset to help facilitate that type of trade especially since he does have perceived value compared to some of the other names people keep throwing around as trade pieces (epenesa, ford, etc).

I think Edmunds is definitely playing for the Bills in 2022…that being said the real concern is we only have a single LB until contract after 22, Edmunds would have leverage and someone will offer him 15 million a year.  I’m not sure we can afford to do that.  With all of money spent on several positions, LB isn’t an area we might want to spend.  So bringing in a rookie in the 2nd or later makes sense.

 

I also believe we might see a return to the 4-3 a little more.  Especially against 3 teams in the AFC east that want to establish the run.

You should have named the thread:

I’m ready to Will Smith everyone about Tremaine Edmunds. 

 

Keep the captain of our defense name out your mouth! 
 

We are not drafting his replacement tomorrow.

More information clearly showing that Edmunds is not remotely close to the bad player half this board screams that he is.  

 

I have said it 100 times now, the vast majority of what fans here hate about Edmunds has less to do with Edmunds the player as it does with how we use Edmunds a lot of the time.  Which is often like a 3rd shallow safety out there utilizing and trusting his athleticism to get back to the ball after dropping back on the snap.

 

Edmunds is also 5th in total tackles since entering the NFL, and thats taking into consideration he played hurt most of 2020.

I think you're spot on.  The Bills will draft a LB, my guess on day 2, who will takeover Klein's roster spot this year but be the MLB in 2023.  I don't hate Edmunds but wished he made more game changing plays.  He's going to be offered some serious cash next off-season that the Bills can't/won't match.  Similar to Harrison Phillips this year.

Ok, I thought of new material for a Tremaine Edmunds thread.  Why do we call Tre White "Tre", but Edmunds never gets called "Tre"????  

Two reasons.

1.  Only one Tre to keep them straight.

2.  Tremaine is easier to say than Tredavious.
