Reggie Gilliam signs 2 yr, up to 5.2 mil extension


Recommended Posts

I like it.  I still see value in the FB role to create more lanes.  Now that we hope to have an improved running O Line, Gilliam can be helpful.  $2.5 mil. Is not a big deal.

 

I like  the idea of a dynamic offense.  The bread and butter will always be the passing game at around 65%, but going 21 personnel occasionally whether it’s a dump off pass or run up the middle by Motor is a nice change up and defenses will not be able to T up on us.  
 

That to me was one of the very few flaws of Daboll.  He wanted everything through the pass by our WRs.

 

I just don’t want to be predictable.

12% of offensive snaps. This is yet another special teams signing. 


One would think that may change under Dorsey.

 

I certainly don’t want to be run heavy, but I wouldn’t hate a more effective run game to take the heat off Allen and provide more deep shot opportunities.

    And to just use up chunks of time and force other teams into desperation to catch up to the Bills  scores which will be plentiful.  This sets up our defenders to feast on QB sandwiches with plenty of pickles by our secondary.

Multiple things here. One, he is valuable on (dare I say it.....) ST's. Two, he has value of being able to line up and do different things on offense. TE, FB, H-Back, whatever. Third, they must see growth in his game and want to get out in front of things with his contract extension. I trust our FO and staff so I'm good with it.

I trust Beane, but that seems a lot for someone who I think is pretty replaceable. 
 

I wonder if they have bigger plans for him on offense this year, and are extending him before his production goes way up?

 

Typical overpayment for a special teamer. Neal, Andre Smith, now Gilliam. Kumerow is likely next.
