I think a reality check is in order. They are Practice Squad players who weren't signed to 31 other active rosters. Glad they're sticking around but it's hardly a "big win".

 

I will venture to say Beane and company are very happy after the waiver signings.  Alot of effort and resources went into these guys.

With the exception of McCloud the better cuts are all on the PS.

I don't think anyone is denying that. Most GMs probably feel the same.

Funny guys like Blackshear and Hodgins are the guys many wanted on the roster. McCloud, Tenuta, and Owen people hated and they are the ones that get signed. 

Tenuta is/was horrible. That another team is desperate for a tackle doesn't make him good.  McCloud is a fringe NFL player, he will be on that bubble every year. Which of the DBs are you cutting to keep him? Easy to see how he would be claimed. Every team has a Blackshear and/or Hodgins like player.  Some skill position player that they don't know about but they like enough to keep around as cheap insurance on the PS.

Shows you position value more than anything.

That is true. I also think "fans" can see what RB and WR do in pre-season games. Where the stuff the guys at other positions do is much more subtle.

Cam Lewis.  But it was close.  Cam will be cut when Tre comes back.

A quick rundown of former Bills now on other teams the last 2 years.

- DE Darryl Johnson traded to Carolina for a 6th rd pick.  Bills used this pick on Christian Benford.  Panthers released him yesterday.  Claimed by Seahawks.

- released G Jack Anderson.  Signed to Bills PS.  Eagles grabbed him.  Eagles released him yesterday.  Claimed by Giants

- released Rachad Wildgoose.  Signed to Bills PS.  Jets grabbed him.  Jets released him yesterday.  Claimed by Washington

- traded G Cody Ford to Arizona for 2023 5th rd pick.

- released TE OJ Howard.  Looks like he's signing with Bengals

- released DB Nick McCloud.  Claimed by Giants

- released OT Luke Tenuta.  Claimed by Indy

- released OL Tanner Owen.  Claimed by Saints

- released DE Kingsley Jonathan.  Claimed by Bears

 

Just crazy the number of players who can't make Bills roster but end up somewhere else.

 

 

You would really need to compare to other teams to tell whether this is a lot.  For example, the Jets had seven players picked off waivers today and 11 players over th3 last two weeks.  That's two more than the Bills have in two years in just in two weeks.

@MattParrino

Duke Johnson and Tavon Austin on the Bills practice squad is such a luxury. They can get plucked any time but having vets like that potentially available if needed is a nice situation to be in for Buffalo.
