So, since we kept Ducasse, I'm assuming no comp pick?


I think as long as we cut him by week 10 we can get a pick

THEY HAVE UNTIL WEEK 1!! (How many times must this be repeated on this board?)

 

Given that DuCasse was a healthy scratch this week, it comes down to Holmes and Davis, both of whom were effective week 1 - we'll see what other WRs come off the practice squad.

Looks like today, checking the over the cap site, that the Bills would have to make 4 roster moves now to get a 3rd round pick. Leonard Johnson made roster and moved up into qualifying area.  On the other side Robert Blanton was cut by the Cowboys and Justin Hunter was inactive the first week.

This is likely why the staff wasn't over eager to release some of their better players just for the comp pick. The discussion prior depends on all other teams keeping the guys they got from us. We can still likely get a lower comp pick simply for releasing Ducasse and I still think we should do that, but Holmes, Davis, DiMarco, etc. are all more valuable to us now than that one potential pick.

EVEN WITH THE YELLING, YOU HAVE ME CONFUSED!! EVERYONE ELSE SAYS WE HAVE UNTIL WEEK 10, NOT WEEK ONE !! WHICH ONE IS IT ? Oh, and I can hear you just fine with lower case letters.THANKS!


Why should the fan base care about wins.  The GM sure doesn't.  This is the worst roster in 15 years.

I don't know, man. Chan coached a pretty sorry group of 'players'. And that was 5-7 yrs ago. I hear ya though.

This is why it's not worth worrying about just yet. We have to wait and see how things play out as the season goes on. The # of cuts the Bills need to make won't really be known foe sure until it gets closer to week 10.

I think it will also depend on where the Bills are in the standings as they approach week 10. If they're in the playoff hunt and the guys that factor into the comp pick formula are making an impact, you can bet that they will keep them.
If they're out of the hunt and/or those guys are not making an impact, my guess is that they will be gone/replaced.

Ducasse is inactive for game 2. I will be annoyed if we give up a comp pick for a guy who's not even dressing

They Bills will clean house week 9, as required to get the pick. Take it to the bank.

Honest question- has any team ever done this?

I don't think so.  But it would be a good idea.

ya, i think davis and holmes are nothing special and will be replaced, ducasse is worthless, even hauschka isnt safe with the way he is looking on fgs, and although i havent really watched him closely dimarco doesnt seem to be doing anything special either.
I think we will definitly go after the third and depending on our record might try for a 4th and 5th too

Not sure. But unless the team is miraculously in playoff contention there would be no reason not to do it. The players they need to dump are not all pros or anything.
