Lack of interest in former Bills starters in FA?

Granted, Von Miller is the same age as Huges, hasn't had double digit sacks since 2018 (5 last year) & we paid him a massive amount, but Hughes doesn't have the post season cred Miller has built up. 

FWIW, Von Miller was the third ranked edge defender in PFF after (and very close behind) #1 Myles Garrett and #2 Maxx Crosby.  Rousseau was our best at #28. Hughes was 32nd.


In 4 playoff games, Miller had 4 sacks, a forced fumble and recovery, 6 TFL and 6 QB hits.  In 15 reg season games [he missed one due to timing of his trade), he had 9.5 sacks, 19 TFL and 17 QBH.  The 5 sacks was with LA, he also had 4.5 sacks with Denver.

With the addition of Miller, I just don’t think there is a spot for Jerry unless he wants to compete with Shaq Lawson for the final DE 

Even at this stage of his career, he is probably better than Lawson tbh

From the players standpoint it doesn't make sense to rush into signing anywhere if you're not in that initial wave of free agency activity either. Don't want to sign somewhere expecting to be a starter only to be replaced by a highly drafted rookie.


Very wise post. Wait and see what teams still have perceived holes after the draft and sign on where they have most chance of playing. At best these guys get short, incentive based contracts. Hard to get incentives when you aren't on the field because some hot shot rookie stole thunder.


See Mitch Trubisky

Because Hughes and Sanders will be back with the team after the draft. 


Not Sanders, i can see Klein, then maybe Beasley midseason
