Released today by Tampa, he has ties to Frazier and Byrd.

Bills need to sign a vet CB in FA and draft one imo. Big need in 2017.

He was trash on the field after getting paid tho - only a 2-year "prove it" type thing.

why not? .. im an anti gilmore guy.. this guy tackles. ..unless you are one of those "in depth talent evaluators" that permeates this site and can break his game down. .. to me , the average fan,   he sounds decent

Verner has been one of my targets for a cheap vet signing.

I'd do it as competition for Seymour

I think the Bills are hoping that Seymour can replace Gilmore but we have no idea at this point. We also have to hope Darby can regain form after having a bit of a sophomore slump. Corey White is a FA. Robey's not an outside corner. They need guys like this, imo.

I think it's going to cost some money to get him.  I'd say in the 3 years 16 mi range or a 1 year 4-5 mil where he'll want to prove himself to get one more contract.

could be. He said there are "4-5 teams interested" at this point. No halfway decent corner is cheap. They are right behind QBs and OTs. I have read that it's a relatively deep CB FA market, at least.

I'd go one year $5M with team option for 2nd year at $10M

I would rather draft a CB . This looks like a good year for that position. Taller and cheaper    jmo

we definitely need to draft one too but that won't be enough. Need to replace both Gilmore and White.

White played decent in a depth role last year tho.

On the proviso of drafting another CB by R3, I'd take that deal as a stop-gap. I still think Verner could be a handy player, just never lived up to expectation.

I liked White playing safety at the end of the year.
