Andre Reed heavily suggests that OBJ will sign with Bills

According to Beane from the other day there's no cap space....

 

You can make some though - matakevich, haack, Ford - that makes about 5.  

 

I'm not sure what this guy wants contract wise though.  To me I'd look at it like Diggs insurance for the playoffs first, and an extra weapon 2nd.  

 

Stats wise he hasn't been good since he left NY.  Sub 60% catch rate, diminishing yards per reception, diminishing YAC.  Not to mention his left leg is a major concern - broken ankle and now 2 ACL injuries.  

 

Based on all that - if you sign him, it better be for very little money.

Judge him off his play with the Rams. It’s pretty much a proven fact Mayfield held his stats back by rarely hitting him when he was open.

 

Also he will miss over half the regular season so he already knows a 1 year deal would have to be at a discount. If he goes to it’s the Bills, we won’t be able to resign him but other teams will be in line to offer him huge contracts. Being with a team almost certain to play into February is a huge selling point for a player in his shoes.

Still only caught 56% of targets, with a shorter average depth of target.  Having said that, he was VERY good in the playoffs up until the injury.  

 

You could do a lot worse for a half season of someone.  He was originally brought in by LA to replace Woods - if we brought him in mid-season it would likely be a longer term injury to diggs or davis or something.

I wouldn't mind if he signs for this year. Helps the Bills win a Super Bowl and then can cash in on big contract with another team. Given his history with injuries and being a diva I wouldn't want the Bills to sign him to a long term contract.

Pass on him.  He is a headcase.

1 year contract is all he should get. OBJ isn't as crazy as a lot of people are making him out to be. He is well respected by his teammates and wants to win and gets moody when his team doesn't win. He'd be the perfect #3 WR in the last month/playoffs.

I agree. Plus, Allen will only make him that much better.

If you’re confident in McKenzie and Shakir, just cut Crowder and sign OBJ as the 1 year WR rental. 
 

You have your Core 4.. Diggs, Davis, McKenzie and Shakir.  OBJ becomes the 1 year rental and then we have Hodgins vs Kumerow vs Austin for WR6.

Well this story definitely has some legs now, I'm just not sure if we have the cap space to actually make it happen. My guess is McDermott and Beane will want to see if Davis takes a firm grip on the #2 role before doing anything else. If he doesn't meet expectations they can bring in OBJ in October or November.

Beane is a wizard.  If he wants it, it will happen 😎

Up until today .. and even with OBJ tweeting, I thought this was all smoke with a small chance of happening. 
 

Im now thinking we’re going to sign him. 

 

Adding a healthy OBJ to this receiving corps along with Allen as the QB would have opposing DC's crying like a baby. Who would they double cover? Pick your poison because someone is getting covered one on one.

We tried this last year with Sanders and Davis outplayed him. What's bringing OBJ going to do for us other than make a crowded WR room messier and stuff Davis deeper down the depth chart when he really shouldn't be?

 

Most years I would be all about bringing in OBJ but this team is loaded and I just don't know what he adds at this point other than make WR situation more difficult than it already is.
