Levitre  6yr/ 46.8 mil, was he worth it? Never made a Pro Bowl while in Buffalo.

Byrd  6yr/ 56 mil, was he worth it? I don't even have to go into this one, enough said.

Hogan  3yr/ 12 mil, was he worth it?  Number 3 WR at best, pedestrian numbers, nice guy though.

Gilmore  5 yr/ 65 mil, was he worth it? Debatable, not justified from looking at his tenure in Buffalo.

Mike G.  2yr/ 6.4 mil, was he worth it? Debatable, not a starter here and maybe not a starter there either.

 

Solid back up LT?

According to the Buffalo News, police responded and found Kouandjio, wearing a T-shirt and underwear but no pants. He had parked his vehicle alongside a nearby highway that had been closed for hours due to a serious wreck.

"He was acting real confused, but he was no threat," a police source told the News at the time. Kouandjio was not arrested in connection with the incident.

 

I'll pass on that "solid" back up. Let's just agree to disagree, signed McRuss.

Not a strong argument against Levitre. London Fletcher never went to the Pro Bowl as a Bill either.

BB just said that they talked to Barnidge over the summer but "haven't really followed up on it".

I'm looking forward to the preseason games to get a better idea of the strength/weakness of the position. Barnidge would provide good depth this year, but I'd hate to lose one of O'Leary or Thomas, as they offer more long term talent at the position. Chance are Thomas would be relegated to the PS, and I'm sure someone would swipe him.

Given the positive reports on O'Leary and the addition of Boldin, who will probably be TE-ish in how he's used, this potential signing is less important than it used to be.

I would still like to give Tyrod as many options as possible so there are no more questions regarding his long term viability as a starting QB. However, I wouldn't mind using cap space to find a RT worth a damn that could replace Mills. Safety depth is also concern there are a lot of question marks but I want to see them play in a preseason game first.

I'm not so certain with coaches comments about Clay's knee problem I still think they would like some insurance there.

Really hope he works out. Keeping my expectations low, but he certainly has the athletic tools for it.

Preseason games will determine if Thomas and O'Leary are the answer. If one is injured or struggles maybe Bills bring him in. Thought he would be in someone's camp by now? A little weird to me. The only thing that makes sense is he's not coming down from a certain contract number. Whatever that may be.

Boldin has a reputation as a very competent blocker I believe, correct?

Understandable re: giving Taylor options. Don't think we'll add to OT because we already traded up to draft Dawkins.

Good point. Would probably need Clay to go down to warrant going harder for Barnidge though.

That's my understanding. One of the reasons I've liked him for so long.

yes. I'd say he is better than Robert woods at doing so because she is able to get in to position and find the defender quite well. Woods got a little boxy in the hips but I imagine is quicker than bokdin

It is possible that Barnidge just does not want to deal with training camp / early preseason games and figures he will get same size contract in August.

Yes on par with Robert Woods.

I'd love to see Logan Thomas shine in the preseason to make his acquisition a moot point.
