Grading the Bills on Day 2 of Free Agency

By Steve

Day 2 of free agency was better than day 1 of free agency for the Bills but still nothing to throw a parade over. But Buffalo did fill some needs. Heres the grades for day 2 of free agency:

Smokey John Brown WR 3 years $27 mil
Solid comtract for a solid player. Funny the Bills wanted to sign this dude last year and he refused. Last year the Ravens only gave him $6.5 but he had a consistent year and gives the Bills desperately needed speed down the field.
Grade B+

Ty Nsekhe OT 2 years $14.5 mil
If this guy turns out to be the starting LT as some are speculating then this contract is a home run. If Ty is a rotational offensive lineman its an abomination.
Grade C+

Jon Feliciano G 2 years $8 mil
Seems like an expensive backup or depth guy. He has 8 career starts in 4 seasons and only 4 in 2018 on an awful Raiders team.  PFF doesnt grade him out very well either (49/100)
Grade C-

Cole Beasley WR 4 years $29 mil $14.4 mil guaranteed
5'8 beasley turns 30 next month and seems to get hurt every game. He is a tiny little smurph man after all. He had solid stats last year but isnt getting quicker or younger. Its not a terrible contract and its not a terrible player. Moreover its a position of need but there is no chance this guy is on the roster in 3 years.
Grade C-

Overall grade for Day 2 is a weak B-. The late news of Odell Beckham should push it doen to a C but I wont blame the Bills for being the Bills. Because as we know they are the Bills

Grade B-
