Unless there is big guaranteed bases or roster bonuses ala Dareus.

This is a very tradable contract and a pay as you go WR.

Would be an upgrade to Holmes


Honestly, dareus is an easy contract to assume, just impossible for us to deal still

can't you do trades with a player agreement to restructure?

Why would you do anything with this contract. That would mean more guaranteed money which it doesnt have any of after this year

Maybe we can get every wr in the NFL to make Tyrod look like a competent passer.

Or maybe we could have kept a 24 yo stud wr that we had for very cheap.

Only if you wanted to create space short term but that seems the opposite of the plan currently

No, thanks with the contract hes got prior to last year is way overpriced.

The Jags are basically trying to get something for him before they cut him.  With the out to avoid the 4 mil of guaranteed money, they'd cut him before the next league year to avoid the rest of the deal.

I assume he means a paycut?  But he's already fully guaranteed 7 mil of base salary this year - you can't take that away from him.  So what incentive does he have to restructure/take a paycut?

I really like the WRs we have now. Cut down will be difficult , PS could be picked up by needy teams. 

 

Until the Bills have a franchise QB , no need to over spend yet.

you are still battered and bruised.
so many are.

maybe the new regime just felt he was no longer an asset and would be gone long term anyways. Perhaps Sammy did as well and both agreed to shake hands and move on?

 perhaps we should as well?


Bills would do well to keep close tabs on the waivered wire.
Like to see Shorts make the Team on his play though

Will he be cheaper if we wait for him to be released?

Probably.

But you also dont get him in your system for a couple weeks of practice. Instead you get him right before the 1st game so September he likely is slow to get up to speed learning the new offense.

Thag is why you would make the trade now to get him a couple weeks of practice before the 1st game

Ehh...if we are going to do that might as well have just paid Sammy...would you trade Hurns for Sammy?? Hell no...

Yes.  But that is beside the point.  10 mill per year?  Sammy would tell the Bills, and the rams, to pound sand.  He plans on getting paid

I think the team just proved they don't want to invest that kind of cash in the WR position. 

 

Not really. The team JUST proved they don't want to invest that kind of cash in a WR that can't play a full season.
