We have the money to bring in Byrd 🕊Barnidge and Boldin before camp starts. If OBD is serious about winning this year these three guys will be in Rochester on July 27th.

I'm usually good with just two.

I'd take barnidge and bokdin before Byrd. But for very cheap I'd take byrd

They aren't signing anyone, IMO.

They are holding onto the money for whatever reason.... I'll be very concerned with the conservative style if they low ball Sammy next year.(assuming he has a big year)

I wouldn't want Byrd back if it was for free.. guy has no heart after getting paid. I'll take Graham back on his last legs any day of the week over Byrd. At least you know grahams a good dude who plays with heart

Sorry none of those guys prove we want to win and do we really want to win? I'm hoping for 1 last down year, there is way too many good QB prospects to go pissing this away.

I'd take any of them with the addition of Graham. He definitely had his issues but overall is waaaaaay better than our current backups. Would really make me feel better about our safety situation. I don't know anything about Shamiel Gray

we would have to be drafting top 5 for a first round QB.... I don't think any of us want to endure a season that gets us to that

Hard to argue with this. Cory seems like s great team player and could help in a lesser role than in the past.

A 4 win season and a FQB or another 8 win season? Who in their right mind takes the extra 4 meaningless wins if those are the choices?

Agree. I'll take a no win season for a franchise qb. Right now our biggest dark horse is that KC pick. If Alex Smith went down, Mahomes would take reigns with basically no solid WR's and that offense would sputter. (they still might anyway, although they'll be impossible to score on at home) If KC and the Bills each end up picking around 10 or 12, we would have significant power to make a move and trade into a top pick.

Oops, thread hijack. Sorry. With that in mind i'll say Barnidge is the guy I think we should grab. Dont trust clay's body anymore.

as it's a certain OBD picks the right QB, or if that QB witll be the franchise one. 8 wins can turn into 10 wins and a WC with some luck.

signing these FA's will not going to get us to the promise land. Unless your promise land is a weak wild card possibility. MY promise land is multiple deep playoff wins with a superbowl win mixed in

 

Years of swapping coaches means this team has to purge assets and replace them yet again and the best way to build a winner is through the draft, not using piss poor choices that fit a different scheme that is no longer here.

 

Because we are purging lots of Rex and Maroone players it will take multiple drafts to rebuild the team into something

 

To be honest I think this team expects to lose this year and expects to use its 2 1st rd picks for a QB to build around in 2018.  They are not going to waste resources and bring in a FA like Byrd who is heartless and a waste of a roster spot

He made a business decision. If you worked at Burger King and Wendys was offering you more money plus it was in a better location...you would do it too.
And he played well last year.

They don't expect to lose this year.

I think they expect a team that will compete, if they expected to lose they wouldn't have brought back Tyrod.

You don't get multiple drafts to fix things in the NFL. You get three years(at a MAXIMUM) to show progress and if you got nothing to show for it you'll be gone.

A 6 win season this year and the pressure will be on McDermott next year, IMO.

And your going to need more then our first rounder, and KCs first rounder to land a top QB if they are the prospects many people think they will be.
