the process that has lead up to this point is confusing af

AZ wanted a lot for him and no one wanted to pay it.

 

That's the jist of it.

Now that he is a free agent, I think you should take all his comments about where he wants to play, with what QBs, and that money is not the issue with a grain of salt.  In the end, it will be about the money, just like it was with OBJ.

Bills have to get this done. 
 

We know he wants to come here .. and while he has mentioned other options .. I’m sorry, the fact he mentions Buffalo/Allen so frequently and always first when asked, means something. 
 

We have, hopefully/potentially, two more high level years from Diggs, Von, Tre, Hyde & Poyer.   Maybe more, maybe less, but hopefully we can get two more years like that with all five together. 
 

Then we will be looking at, not rebuilding, but retooling the roster a good bit.  
 

Add Hopkins to the mix.  Kincaid may be the future, but we don’t have to count on a rookie, in this Super Bowl window, by making an obvious move. 
 

If it’s about money, and he signs with some random team, so be it … but if he’s down to Bills, Chiefs, Ravens, Jets etc…

We know Hopkins wants to be here so that gives us a chance. Beane will have to work some magic but I really think we can make this happen.

He'll find a creative way for a 2 year deal. It will involve some more restructures.  This is the WR2 we've been waiting for.  Maybe he'll take less also?

To make this happen the Bills trade Ed Oliver? 

 

What realistic trades or cuts would need to happen??

 

Wouldn't necessarily have to cut or trade anybody if you have a couple contracts that can be restructured. Can't assume anybody would take Oliver and his contract, and that would just create another roster need.

My guess is he’s too rich for Beanes blood and they feel they can get it done without this kind of move.

Don't rule out the Jets. They are also in win now mode and having Rodgers as the QB makes them a decent option.

 

Aren't the Jets having issues getting Quinnen Williams signed?  Given that and their current WRs Dhop to the Jets would surprise me.

And everyone knew that he would most likely be released...
