I read like three articles that said the Bills eat the dead cap.

 

"By the book", yes. But Houston can take on whatever they want, and even send us straight up cash.

LOL, Samuel's had plenty of opportunity to be HUGE and has never even sniffed those results.  7 seasons to be precise.  

 

The trade compensation was this year's 6th and next year's 2nd and 5th.  

 

And you're right, Samuel's role is now HUGE, but honestly, anyone expecting that to materialize in the way that we need is going to be incredibly disappointed.  

 

 

He ain’t gonna be any worse than diggs was the second half of last year to be fair 😂. This could be anything between ‘Texans fleeced us’ to ‘we fleeced the Texans’ depending on what diggs has left in the tank lol

Personally, I don't care Diggs is gone. So be it. We got a 2025 2nd, which is more than we would get next offseason if we held onto him. We also take the cap hit this year versus next. Thanks for the play the first couple of years, but the last couple your antics have been ridiculous. A very childish mentality. you can try to say, "He just wants to win. He's a competitor." But all of them want to win and they can keep their emotions under wraps, instead of having toddler type outbursts. Then he would run to social media all the time with his dumb antics as well. I was over it. I think everyone behind the scenes was over it. I think Josh did the best he could to keep the waters calm in all of his interviews, but he was over it. Let's go hit on a couple of WR's this draft and keep it moving. This situation REALLY could end up being addition by subtraction.

Dell is their slot guy and he’s better then Diggs

Dell can go to flanker and be just fine. they don't have a running back. diggs doesn't belong outside.

Football wise...I am EXCITED about the roles of Shakir and Kincaid expanding.  Management wise, I am puzzled why we didn't do this after June 1st and lessen the cap burden given we didn't get back any draft capital in this draft.  

 

I am actually not that concerned about the offense, I think we will still be an elite offense, I mean we were last year and went 6-1 with our WR1 and WR2 producing very little in that time last year.  

 

I just don't understand the timing if we didn't get a pick in this draft.

 

agreed.  totally ridiculous to get nothing in this draft and have it cost more cap wise, thus limiting our FA acquisition ability.

How?

This years first and second, next years first and two seconds. That'll move you up quite a ways and would be very attractive to a developing team.  Only took me half a second to come up with that scenario.

There has to be a Huge back story we don't know about. The compensation seems like Beane wanted to be rid of him & his cap hit. Either Diggs really wanted out & it was worse than we know (like his production went down bc he quit) OR Beane thinks he's cooked & not worth the $. I'm sure there could be other options too. It seems like a sudden rash trade.

I really don’t understand how the finances of this actually worked.

 

 

Agree.

 

I have been envisioning this trade since all the smoke started around the Pro Bowl and felt Beane would have to get very creative to swing this deal.

 

  It would perhaps involve Diggs not being able to report to the Texans until June and the Bills trading a future #1 pick(say 2026) as a place holder for a current Texans day 2 pick(s).     Then flipping Diggs to get that future Bills pick back in June when they had the cap space to make a deal.

 

They kinda' need that 2nd or 3rd round pick NOW to maneuver for the now multiple WR's they want/need.

Have no idea if numbers are correct but this is among the early info out on cap situation.

 

Wow, Beane is willing to take his medicine this year. The Bills are taking a major step back this year!!

Everyone saw Diggs disappear the second half of the season last year.  It doesn't seem like he was an important cog in the Brady offense.

 

So if that is true, it would actually be a bad on Beane to not try to move a guy whose basically been a giant distraction and who still has some trade value left to salvage.

That's the "by the book" breakdown.

 

Houston can take on any amount they want, and even trade us cash for a player.

 

We'll have to see how this shakes out.

 

Cash doesn't affect the cap space taken out.  It would just... pay for stuff.  

 

I believe they can still spread cap hit over 2 years though.

Or we have to cut nine more players.
