Even though hes black? :nana:

Leodis is a special teams nightmare for other teams. As soon as he got a little confidence, that was it. He deserves a buttload of cash just for sticking by us as fans. Nobody deserves what he had to deal with following that muffed punt.

So you want to reward him for his game losing screw-up? Look I have come around from my hate for the guy's lack of football instincts. I would like to have jim back for his special team skills and being a nickel corner. But not a lot of money. IMHO, anything more than 4 mil per year will be too much.

I would like Leodis back for his ST play but I am afraid they are going to overpay him and be forced to let him play on defense.   He is not good in coverage.

I'll defer to the new coaching staff on this one
LM is a better in man coverage than zone. He's been mostly in zone in the past. Pettine is going to use him in press coverage ... which is more to his strength.

The proof will be in the pudding.

He wasn't that bad last year.  He's been really bad in the past at times, but more often than not is right with his man.  Hopefully the new staff can help him with ball awareness. I think Pettines pressing defense will be playing right into his strengths and he could be really good. He's talented, yet inconsistent.

I'm a fan of this move. I hope Pettine teaches him to turn his head around to make a play on the ball.

I'd rather have Leodis back than Levitre. Levitre might be more valuable to the team, but he doesn't allow me the opportunity to shout MCLOVIN!!! after a big play.

Glad to hear it. The Bills organization did say they were going to try and re-sign him.

So is Kyle Moore next?

Watch what some real coaching (Pettine) does for McLovin at CB.  All the talent and athletic ability you can ask for -- and we already know he's a world class return man.

Even without Levitre, we still got Wood.

Sorry.  Couldn't resist.

GO BILLS!!!

As a DC, Pettine won't be involved in the day to day position coaching responsibilities. But his position coaches will teach technique in accordance with the schemes Pettine wants to implement.

I'm very glad to hear that they're making a push to sign McLovin' before free agency officially kicks in.

GO BILLS!!!

If he signs, someone go paint "Welcome back, Leodis!" on his lawn.
