The Bills and Free Agency

By steve

Free agency in the NFL starts today errr last week err officially this Tuesday. The Bills have a lot of holes and something like $15 million to spend. Basically one big move or 3-4 medium sized moves. Wait, still with me?

Bills needs:
1. Tight end
2. Guard
3. Defensive end
4. Safety
5. Linebacker
6. Wide Receiver

The biggest question (besides why the hell would you TRADE for a shitty back up QB) is whether or not you resign Jerry Hughes. The answer is clear, maybe.

Will he take 5 years $44 million? He made his name in Buffalo after being cast off as a bust in a trade from Indy but this is his one BIG pay day. There is no reason for him to sign with the Bills before Tuesday. My guess is some team will over pay him. Oh well, find another DE for half the price and 70% of his production, isn't that why you have Rex Ryan?

The Bills should pursue one of the big free agent tightends. Julius Thomas might be a product of a great offense and will be expen$ive. But there are a few TEs right below him that will be worth pursuing. Will Jordan Cameron be cheap, Gresham might be a target.

No need to spend a lot of money on a guard like Mike Iupati. How did it work out for the Titans when they overpaid Andy Levitre? I can't tell you who to sign but only adding Incognito isn't satisfactory.

How about Derrick Morgan, Hakeem Nicks and Antrelle Rolle? I would have also went after Jake Locker instead of giving up anything just to trade for Matt Cassel but oh well.

This team needs some veterans that have won before. A cage cheap ol' vet or two will be worth it. Isnt Rex a players coach and a guy that players want to play for? We'll see.

Oh and not resigning Da'norris Searcy last season was a mistake. Now he's gonna get paid!
