I have a sneaky feeling that CB White could be a cap casualty.  Just putting that out there in the universe.....

 

If there's a guy who's "pay" doesn't match his "play" right now, it's White.  Not sure if I'd agree with it off the top, but if another better value corner replaced him, and it freed up over $9,700,000 in cap savings, allowing us to sign other pieces like OG Seumalo, and MLB Bobby Wagner.....  I could live with that.

 

Depends on how good they feel about Elam stepping up I suppose (and if a quality value acquisition was available in FA), but Beane did say that "there could be other cap casualties depending on who is added." - Source:  https://www.buffalobills.com/news/top-5-things-gm-brandon-beane-press-conference-on-the-bills-fr

That wouldn't happen this season. He has a 23 million dollar dead cap hit if we do it this year. The potential is there to get out next year though.

You, good sir, may have a career opportunity in comedy.

So at this point we have lost two free agents Tremaine and Case.

 

we have resigned Poyer, Matakevich, Dodson, Jackson, Martin, Lewis

 

signed from other teams: Harty, Kyle Allen, McGovern

 

with the following remaining free agents: Klein, Quessenberry, Saffold, Singletary, Phillips, Lawson, Crowder, Beasley, Taiwan, Van Roten, kumerow, Hart, Murray, Marlowe, Sweeney, Jaquan Johnson

 

Of the guys from last years team I would like to see Phillips and Lawson back on cheap deals as that would reduce the need to draft another dlineman and allow us to focus on the oline in the draft. I am also a big fan of Singletary - he has a ton of heart and might be fine if we can fix the oline. I am not really surprised these guys have had no takers individually, but collectively we seem to have a bunch of players nobody else wants. Perhaps because we lock up the players that are important or perhaps because our depth is just meh or a mixture of both.

Agreed about Lawson and Phillips, although I can see us drafting a 4th DT this year for Oliver insurance. Q-Berry, Klein, and Pro Bowl Bobby I can see back for depth purposes. Maybe Marlowe too.
 

Kumerow and Singletary I still think get signed by another team.

What would be the reaction to Bills signing OBJ, Wagner, and Elliott? 

 

I can't speak for everyone - but my initial reaction would be that I traveled to an alternate universe where math didn't exist.

I’m the last couple years, how many players did we actually sign that we were linked to? I can’t remember 1 but maybe I’m wrong

Pre-FA none, post FA if a Buffalo reporter brings it up it’s likely, they key thing is the word interest. Interest doesn’t mean visit, so how likely something is to happen is still a stretch. If the player was coming in for a visit, then there is much more to read in on.
