What Are the Buffalo Bills Doing?

by Steve

The Buffalo Bills are in full on offseason mode.  Last week they cut some dead weight (albeit not enough) and resigned a quarterback (has he even been assigned a number?).  This team has needs throughout the roster and is no where near competing.

Doug Marrone said last week there will be an open competition at every position.  With little to no depth and very little talent those competitions are going to be ugly.  Ryan "$10.45 million" Fitzpatrick will allegedly be back to compete with Tarvaris Jackson and two or more rookies Bud Nix hopefully drafts.

Why is Fitzpatrick being brought back?  True his $10 mil counts against the cap so cutting him will save a paltry $.45 mil (although a ton of actual cash) but he sucks and we all know it. The Tar-Var signing was cheap ($1.75 mil) and is still an unknown since he didn't even dress for a game last year.  Thanks Chanwhick.

Cutting Nick Barnett and George Wilson were good moves.  Neither is very good and weren't worth their cap figure.  I could have survived with Barnett still on the roster but he did fail a physical so tough titties.  My question is why haven't Kelsay and Brad Smith been axed yet?  That is another $6-9 mil in savings.

The Bills allegedly have something like $20 mil in space although that doesn't count a potential Jarius Byrd $6.2 mil franchise tag (which has to happen) and $5 mil or so for drafted players.  Free agency starts March 12th. I'd say the Bills will be sitting out any big signings but who thought last year would have happened?

I'm just hoping the Bills don't go all out to sign has-beens from the Jets like Bart Scott and Jim Leonhard just because of the Mike Pettine  hire.  In reality I would be more worried about not signing the likes of Kyle Moore and Andy Levitre.  If Levitre in particular walks I blame the Bills brass for sitting on their hands and not signing him earlier.  Then again some comments made by Levitre after the season leads me to believe he is looking forward to a pay day and why would anyone wanna stay in a losing organization like this.

Biggest needs:
Wide Receiver

Once cuts and things begin to clear up I'll be back to preview free agents more thoroughly.

    Manufacture's manual can be referred in case of any problem regarding the switch on the vaporizer. Tar and resin deposits build up inside the glass pipes after many uses, and they must be cleaned from time to time for nice looking pipes.

  4. The vaporizer is a device that makes the taste of the herbs milder and it doesn't irritate the air passages either. The next vaporizer in the list is easy to use and portable. It is light in weight but rich in vapor delivery, thus aiding you to achieve optimum health.

  5. Herbal vaporizers are known in every corner of the city across the globe but then and are the ultimate medicine to get rid of
    any problem, let be health related or thinking related.
    Cigarette smoke is extremely irritating to the lining
    of the throat. In this fast moving world, smoking is more of a passion then habit.

  6. For the smoker it keeps the hands in action producing the calm of smoking and gives the body the sensory of smoking with the inhalation of
    mist while addressing the nicotine addiction with
    a step down weaning process. Realistic features can make
    all the difference in a completed and coherent look.

    Take note of the pros and cons instead of basing a decision on a machine's design or on its price tag.
