So is it a 5th in this draft or next year's draft?

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

 

wants playoffs, chance at a ring, instant stardom in key games like the ex-Bill last year in the playoffs....

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

 

 

You ever been at an auction and thought you had something after outbidding that one guy back and forth for a few minutes..........then it's going once, twice.......and some other bidder confidently puts a bid in?

 

That always pisses off a fool and makes them re-think how much they want that item.

 

That's the strategy here.  

 

Pats didn't want to overpay for MG so they waited for best time to make the decision emotional.

 

If the Bills match, so be it.    But they wanted MG and didn't want to overpay to get him and this close to the draft......this will have the Bills thinking a lot harder than they would have a month ago.

What the f### are you talking about?? The scenario you describe is a given. Do you think they though no one would sign Gillislee?

its this year. If they don't match they are trading their backup RB for a 5th rd pick

And freeing up $1.79 in cap space this year.

Right now, he wants more money and stability at this point. I am not saying he doesn't want those other things, but right now they are lower on the priority list

@corryjoel
LeGarrette Blount can't be happy about Pats' offer sheet on Mike Gillislee.

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 don't follow the Bills?  You've been posting on an all-Bills website for years.

this is just the Pats making fools of the Bills. and  they(Bills) deserve it. no pro-active thinking.. very frustrating watching this play out again..

Let him walk. Take the pick and the cap savings and let's move along. We turned a street free agent into a pick in 1.5 years. Not too bad...

Follow them yes.  Defend every move they make like PTR and blame the fans for any failures?  Nope.

You are all nuts if you think the Pats are making moves to spite a team they can reliably count on a win against every year.

Too much for a backup RB

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.

I'd love it if Whaley waits until the last possible day to match the offer and in the interim Blount signs somewhere like Tampa or Green Bay for less money than the Patriots offered him..

the bills will sign him. remember how many full backs they signed? they are probably going to do tandems with mccoy/fb and td mike/fb.

 

they will be running 80% of the time i bet.

Belichick will just go out in a pickup truck on a Tuesday and find some itinerant laborers standing around waiting for work, then train them to beat the Bills on Sunday.
