no, sorry. they handled it wrong.
look at what Belichick did with Hightower this offseason. He was saying the same things about getting paid, etc. Bill kept him to the end of the contract and said "ok, go test the market. see what's out there". End result, Hightower found the money he thought was out there for him wasnt and he re-signed in New England
A franchise can do that when they have the history the Patriots do.
The Bills don't have that so need to do things different until they have a bit more credibility league-wide.
