Gotham Bill, Odds are that Whaley is going to draft a DB, especially of Gilmore leaves. So brace yourself for the inevitable. Don't allow your nerves to be jangled more than necessary. Each year it's the same mind-set that has coursed through this organization resulting in the same results. So accept the inevitable and don't let it cloud your day. 
 
If the Bills don't come out of this draft with a credible qb prospect I will join the ranks that you with great distinction lead. The motto of our dispirited group is : Oh no, not again!  :cry:

LOL John, we are getting old. The younger posters (lucky for them) were not around for much of our suffering. When Whitner was drafted in 2006, I remember posting on TSW, asking if he was tall enough to get on all of the rides at Disney. We were here for draft after draft watching our GMs shun good quarterbacks and blockers for much less useful players.

That said, I will never stop hoping. SOME day, we will have a killer draft! We will probably have to get rid of Whaley for this to occur but again, there is always hope.

They cut him, they didn't cut, now the Jags are interested, the story goes on.

I'd look at him as an option for RT, plus he can play some guard like he did in college.

 

Bonus that he doesn't count against the compensatory pick formula since he's a cut.

 

Anonymous source says he was being cut because he was being beat regularly by Mario Williams in practice.

you never know but I doubt it. To give up a draft pick or player I'd guess it's a team without a viable LT. NYG, Jets, Jags, Panthers come to mind.


Denver?

yes. Sounds like Jags are willing to give up a pick though - not a bad idea considering the lack of OTs in this draft.

Yep. And they have a desperate. Their risk in Beachum was a disaster. I think Albert would be another risk for them.

One injure-prone player for another.  And are the Dols trading for Peyton Manning circa 2013-2104 as well?

I guess it's better to get something rather than cut him for nothing. Plus, Bortles is bad so sadly, Tannehill would be an upgrade.
