The team could easily have managed his $4M cap hit this year, and next year it actually drops to $2.7M.  Factor in the idea that he's not getting the lion's share of the carries, so even if he's your starter in 2018, then you have him cheap.

 

I'm sorry, but I don't think it makes sense to assume you can replace the productivity, nor do I think it makes sense to create another roster hole at this point of the offseason.


 

who cares?  They have the room to do so this year, unless you think there was some massive cap-altering move coming later this offseason, which I do not.

 

His cap figure next year is even less, and the team has even more cap room.

 

It makes no sense at all, other than the fact that our GM is a glorified scout who loves his draft picks.

If any other team did what the Patriots did, they would be looked at as morons.

 

They revolve RBs anyways, look at the playoffs.  Why are they paying all these RB 4 million?

 

Gilly was out of the NFL early 2015 and now he is some great back?  The dude benefited from the number 1 rushing attack in NFL.  We can plug and play RB just like GB/NE can plug and play WR.

On average, 5th round running backs run for less than 500 yards in their first two seasons combined. Many more stats about Gilly and his production in that article. I saved it for the Sunshine fan club, there is a taste of reality.

I would suggest reading Bandits post above, the MG contract wasn't going to affect the cap. In a year the Bills are going to be begging to overpay FA's to come here.

What?! A 5th is what the Pats gave up for him. The article was a debate on his production and the value of the pick. Obviously you didn't read it.

i believe his entire point was that, much like MG, these late round picks are not a slam dunk to produce out of the gate (if ever). Hopefully Jwill will step up from here.

I read the article.  and I could care less.....

 

Bills took a Street UFA and turned him into a 5th round pick.

I get that, But again I am still not paying a nice contract to a BU RB.  Specially when I just signed a short yardage guy that knows the offense.

 

So I am fine with taking a street FA and flipping him for a 5th

How much less could you care? With that line of thinking I wonder if Jacksonville will trade us Hurns for that same 5th rounder so they can turn their UDFA asset into "draft capital"

Who's that? Tolbert has never played for Kubiak/Dennison or the Shanahans.

Which will probably turn back into nothing, but we'll give it a shot. Hey, every once in a while you get a Kyle out of it!

No they turned in a productive second string RB for another Buffalo Bills 5th round roll of toilet paper.

At #163, it's basically early 6th round (5 x 32 = 160).
