Looks like Leonard Floyd won't give the Bills a discount to resign him.


Recommended Posts

Floyd was a great pick up by Beane and he was a key player for the D through 2/3 of the season or so.  He had 1 sack in his last 6 games, none in the postseason. (So 1 in 8) That disappearance is concerning if looking at him for a bigger contract.

I'll be sorry to see Floyd go. He was our best and most consistent pass rusher this season. Hopefully, Miller will return to form next season and fill that role.

First of all, there is nothing in that story that is news. We've known this since the end of the game. Secondly, he took a one-year "prove it" deal. He proved it. Now a bad team with cap space will overpay. It's the circle of life.

I think this is right.  He did a nice job for us...let him go get paid.


Why should he take a discount to stay here?

Disagree completely.


I think the knock on him last year was he was considered a bit of a bust when he was traded to the Rams. Then he took off. But a lot of people thought it might have just been playing alongside Aaron Donald.


So he literally had to sign a "prove it" deal with us. He proved it. His market will be better this year.



What narrative about him did he dispel that will make him more attractive?    


You aren't making sense about the "draft bust" thing being a knock on him coming into his age 31 season.   He cleared that "draft bust" notion like 5-6 years ago.


He had a hot start to the 2023 season but totally vanished in the last 7 games.    


That isn't likely to be lost on prospective employers who are generally loathe to pay 32-33 year old non-HOF pass rushers any significant money.


A one-word synopsis of what he put on tape during that stretch is "washed".   It may be because of injury but it was what it was.


I don't see the Bills even giving Floyd another $9M 1 year deal.........but Beane isn't great with the cap so we can't rule it out.
