I know this season isn't over yet but I was looking through some of the free agents for next season and I came across Brian Orakpo. I think he would be a nice addition on the other side of Mario and he shouldn't be too much to sign.

A two time Pro Bowler and one time pro bowl alternate wouldn't be too much to sign?

His words are hurtful.  He might be a bully.

Throw out a number your thinking?

Based on what Doug Whaley talked about the other day on The John Murphy show, you can look for more "value" free agents like Lawson and Branch to be signed by the Bills.

Yeah, really nobody on the market is going to get Mario money, that doesn't mean they're all affordable.  I like Orakpo, but I don't see the Bills pursuing him.

Remember when we chose Maybin over Orakpo and Clay Matthews?  Fun times...

I would not want him on this team for the simple fact he is a reminder of how bad we screwed up on that pick

Yeah, I was supremely dissapointed they took Maybin over Orakpo.  I have to admit not even thinking about Matthews at that point.  Good thing I'm not a paid scout.

Won't need him anyway with Kalil Mack in a Bills uni next year.

I REALLY hate saying this, but we should have had him in the first place.  When our pick came up, and Orakpo was available, I lost my mind with excitement.  When we picked Maybin, I lost my mind with disgust.

By some accounts, he is not having a good year.  For example, recent Barnwell column in Grantland.

a little anxious aren't we ? : )
i like the 26cornerblitzes idea best though to resolve the position opposite Lawson
should it be phrased mirroring ? Complementing ? In parallel conjunction ?
Lawson Alonso Mack has a nice ring to it as a starting group.

But i do not think they will spend much money at all on the position or draft high for one .

Theres a lot of room between won't cost much and the richest defensive contract in NFL history.
