Well damn. BBB showing the league how it's done

Well, since all rookie contracts are pretty much set, there's not much to negotiate...Here's your contract...sign it

A couple of reactions:

 

1.  The CBA makes this a bit of a cookie cutter process

2. Our early picks were late round picks making their holdouts less likely

3. Bills don't draft divas

4. These guys probably know they are potentially playing in a SB early in their career

5. Reputation of organization, team mates and fans

 

But yeah I agree.  I don't think I can remember a team having their entire team sign two weeks after the draft.

 

 

Wow articles are really spot on when they talk about how the Bills tend to work in stealth mode more than most teams i.e. the Von Miller deal

 

I actually was going to post a comment today that I was bit worried about Elam signing as he doesn't have an agent, was using father and uncle.  Sometimes in those situations they may have acted like the diva and think they know more than an agent would since they played the game and would have made things difficult  Or also could have gone very quickly as not as knowledgeable and got taken to the cleaners be Beane. 

 

I would assume they did use an attorney.

So why hasn't every team signed their entire class a couple weeks after the draft since the wage scale started? 

They don't need to. We just decided to get it out of the way early.

1) Offsets

2) Bonus payout structure

 

Few years back think  it was Joey  Bosa was holding out as Chargers had a policy of paying out bonus over 3 years, he wanted all of it up front.

 

Spanos does not have near the cash resources of TPEGS

I don't know. Are you disagreeing that rookie contracts are pretty much set based on where you're drafted?

I'm disagreeing that it's as simple as here's the contract, sign it as you said. 

Ok, maybe not that simple but there is not much negotiation as far as salary and contract length

This!!!!

Getting to sign with the Best team in the league makes Beane’s job a mere formality.

I think it speaks well on how starting from the top all the way to the bottom free agent signee this 2022  team means Business. Not messing around whatsoever mateys. What a ride we are in for!~!~!!!

Not hard these days with them basically bracketed in to a contract value by the rookie wage scale. Mostly just offset language has to be worked out with some other minor details.

It also let's the Bills know exactly how much cap space is left if they are still trying to get someone else.
