@mikerodak
Bills have $10.8M in cap space, which considers Gillislees $1.797M tender. Matching deal would lower space by ~$2M, per @RapSheet details.

They certainly should.

 

And when they do......there goes the savings/cap maneuvering they gained being thrifty with Groy. :lol:  :doh:

 

There is a reason the Bills look like a clown show.......not tendering those two higher was unnecessary risk for potentially paltry savings.

 

You'd think Whaley would've learned his lesson with Hogan, but Whaley seems to be a thick-headed amateur with a professional death wish.

That would be awesome if we signed Blount today and gave them a big middle finger

That's right.  Even when that clown GM stumbles onto talent, he lacks a coherent strategy for retaining or valuing it.  But you go ahead and follow your pied piper franchise.

 

You're here too.

Did the Bills think that or did you?

 

 

That was my take on how I'd approach an MG offer sheet if I wanted to get him away from the Bills.

 

Timing is everything.

 

Do you suppose that the Pats first thought about MG the other day?   They could wait Blount out and get him for that or less or just draft a back.   MG is simply the better player.   He was a target.

This is becoming a trend - Hogan, Gilmore, Gillislee...

I guess we should take it as a compliment that Belichick thinks so highly of Bills players? friggin dick head.

This is starting to get aggravating though.

I feel like Belichick is almost trolling us at this point...
Maybe he's still pissed off about Rex Ryan talking all that smack? Or Bills fans taking out that billboard mocking Brady? Or shutting them out last year? lol j/k

Doing it sooner or later doesn't matter.  The Bills have the cap space to keep him (about $2MM this year.)

If Rodak is right that is not too bad at all. We should match

If they've signed MG to an offer sheet then you can bet they wouldn't care what happens with Blount if it means the Bills wouldn't be matching.

He just has it out for Buffalo for some reason. Like Tom Brady shouting "REX RYAN" as an audible on MNF. I have no clue what we did to piss him off.

My initial plan of offering him 2 years and $4.5M fully gtd doesn't look so bad right now.

Panic! Panic! Run in circles!

 

Grossly underused here, this will hurt.

Take the pick. 26 year old RB isn't needed in a likely non competitive year when we already have depth at the position.

Bills would be stupid to match.  Back up RB are a dime a dozen.  Let's be honest here, there was a significant drop off when Gilly had to be the starter.  The reason why he was so effective was because McCoy did the real damage.  I am fine with Jonathon Williams being the back up, and bringing in another RB off the street to compete.  Our o line is good enough to plug most any back up RB in there.

 

BB doesn't want Gilly, he just wants to screw the Bills.  Don't fall for his nonsense.

Could we tender him higher than a 5th? Thought it was an original draft level?

Pretty much all of this is wrong.

Oh, so the second string wasn't as good as the star first string RB.

 

Hope you hold onto secrets this valuable until you strike it rich to publish them...

Maybe Gilislee wants a chance to start as opposed to backup here
