These cell comprise GO. Well cup unsealed so I'll go bungee ills go bungee don't sound good apology. Coupons CEO. I'll go Ponzi elves around go to our geo on WGR. Voice of the so. Twice by mentioning Gilmore. But his article is Joseph size is about offensive players. Now we could talk about putting Gilmore and often it's the that's come up. For probably probably as it's a family party that you wish you were. I'm not talking about myself and that is generally saying that probably happened. Probably happen to sell a lot right sell. That people want to just talk about. To do more often worse ideas of her most horrible I'd be a good manager and you're nice and like how do you handle it. I basically just not my head like yeah that's probably. The but I'll. I I didn't I think one I've gotten a times over the last few years it is definitely gets a lot of big EJ Manuel tight end. Wide receiver you know candidates and they count the and it got to be it wasn't a swish what in general and Randal holt got you got it epic guests. All right so you have a today what the bill should do with each of their own and restricted free agents to be on offense and who's the one you think that is worth. The most time and money. Well first off only off it's a skill guys skies okay because. But but you know I think journals the only linemen anyway but there's so many of guys honestly this year usually I can do it like. One or two parts but this your head decisive. Do it in multiple parts because there's 23. Restricted free agents. And I'm not analyst went 31. 01 column order is to scroll down keep reading reading so there's nine and a skilled player positions who are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents. Manual. 12345. Wide receivers. Would tire and it went under and eight. Tight end Greg Reggie Bush in Jerome Felton the backfield I would say to your question Robert Woods is clearly the answer. But. I don't think there's any way possible you can keep Robert Woods nor should you pay the amount of money it's going to cost to keep it. Now all I can I can appreciate that they might balk at one to pay him the going rate for a free agent number two wide receiver. But short of keeping an annual meeting their receivers price. What are they going to do owed to address and having that big they they don't have a proven guy there I mean is that it is that a draft pick is at that and picked. Human quarterback to. I think I think. Answering how to fill the void left if Robert Woods leaves I think uses of the verbal question. It is but look I mean what we're really talking about here is who is your number two receiver going into next year because other than that. Guys you can kinda move it now shuffle and now we've seen that and that's not abnormal around the week like you'd love to have. Three bar fight legitimate guys you'd love to have the giants had last year and unique plug sterling Shepperd in their boom. You know you're ready to rock and roll I mean but what you get beyond two. Look Chris Hogan was going to be Chris Hogan. As he always then eat at you captain in this office she's gonna give you those kinds of numbers. So I think the answer your question is they're going to try and draft a guy who can be the number two wide receiver whether it's the first round second round. I think you're looking at CB want to number one and that guy being number two from there. You'll you will try to fill out your roster with either a you know some of the guys they have already empty hoping they step up and they become. You know better players insulin to roll with it Desmond Lewis he can do that call we list in The Who we haven't really seen it all play Walter Powell was still. You know under contract although he's also a you know urged a return guy type player but. I do think as an article there are two guys you should at least. Attempt to bring back that's our keys that when it just an honor I wouldn't give either them a lot of money. But mark he's good weeks. So we're gonna follow the speed to get an offer but I don't think it's gonna be so outrageous where you can't just say book where India a short contract because your injury history couple years. You'll pay not much money in we'd love to have you back and just putters case. Pretty much the same thing although I might pay more than good win because they think his ability to give you some more of what you don't get. From some of the other guys on the team would be a little bit better is there any player on this was to viewers to. Day that you would say or maybe did write it depends on what the quarterback situation has. Well I didn't write that at any 1 am looking over right now I think. Think I would be ironically enough. It would be Jerome Felton. Because I wanna know what kind of offense they're running before every Jerome Felton back Jerome Felton is still one of the best blocking fullbacks in the league. And you can probably sign him back for a one year veteran minimum deal that's pretty much what he did last year. After he got caught and brought back but I don't he drove felt about my team the body sling it all over the place he's wasting roster spot. For guys that I can have go catch passes on top of that. But it'll research on what denizens that involve them in the past sparse fullbacks so remember the old days when AM. When he was with the Broncos of the Super Bowl are what's Rob Davis Eric Dyson Alex Gibbs was the offensive line coach and they loved it they love that zone blocking scheme. They did you to blaze at fullback Howard Griffith I should have given Edgerton and Howard Griffith was the guy that. He was a guy that really caught a lot of passes out of the backfield he carried the ball some. Any was a blocker and then this year the Broncos what the same route on the kids they've acute that it off hand but Pete at the same kind of thing but they've always had. In that type of system. A blocking fullback McCue who was more athletic than Jerome Felton who could catch passes and two more so if that's what you're looking for. Let's see how the draft plays out would see a free agency plays out of you get a guy younger cheaper room can fill that role if not. And by the bringing Jerome Felton and they will need a full back at some point is it. Risky I recognize that teams will go into the draft and they will have needs but. If you wanna take the draft as it comes and pick the best players as your going going into it knowing. Or hoping to fill your number two receiver spot. Could change that for you good doesn't it make you perhaps more prone. To reach for a guy it if say they don't do it ten which mean they could it be great regret Corey Davis at ten they've answered the number two wide receiver. Question penal emphatically but if they don't and they need to draft a quarterback say. And you get to the second round. Doesn't beating to fill that spot through the draft make you kind of reaching. Putting yes we have a great example of that in that this is number two let. Member of the year they draft James Hardy. I have a tall guy got to have a tall guy all right what they do they reached for a tall guy when they are that was a loaded wide receiver draft and you know sort of what the fourteenth 2014 drafts him Watkins and those guys that one of the better receiver draft sort last several years of the George now Jordy Nelson now on Jackson. There were several guys I think the bills reached because they were specifically looking for an eight guys that's why. I say you don't draft for need initially. That if you draft for me whether you're talking at all like receiver and number two guy a pass rusher Aaron Maybin whatever if you draft for me. You're generally going to reach more often than if you just say I'm taking the best football player I can. Although it should get a position you're really sat. I'm taking the best football where I can't because if you're just load your team up with good football players and then they start to kind of thought your roster because you're gonna eat guys all over the place. You're have a better football team and I took it guy in the second round election taken in the fourth he's not really that good but now I gotta start. So about Joseph with us on the AT&T hotline much over the Bulldog here Gilmore that's not today's column. But right what do you predict happens if you would predictor anything. They give offer probably somewhere between the I would say eleven and twelve million dollar range. Put on the table before free agency and they tell them. Once we get free agency we can't. Promise this will be here anymore took token offer. What's up is it a token offer not a real offer like that they'll put offer. On the table say this is what will pay you this is where we value I think they'd like to have them back with a aka. It when he lost that value him what he thinks he's valued at so the give and offer the put on the table say. Once we get free agency we keep promises will be there because we start filling our roster what's guys are going in people's hearts Heidi we have to do our things so. If this is good enough for you sign it or. Sure you wanna wait two or three days in the free agency. It's still there may be because we haven't done anything in either of you maybe it's still there but we can't promise. How likely is very key and back not like all right. I'd give it about 1020% chance they won't they won't do franchise tag I don't think so my got. But but but with in the past and we have two weeks. I was told that it's still something he discussed like that they could do it. I just. Don't think they will because. That's a pretty tough capped it again you're talking probably fourteen and a half million. Which are tired they want him for a year that you're in the same situation go to the next year and here are limited cap space that they need me. They would like to do something they're into anything with a on the obviously wanna lower that cap number to have a little bit more flexibility. To get the player Agassi it's not a good bless you he made it clear he doesn't wanna tag that was part of the business but. Bills generally don't go that route they have they have in the past we know that they've done they've tagged few guys here there. But some I think 41 was little different. That was always say you know we want hours out you wanna works at an outward kind of close I don't think they're that close that I think that's part of the reason why. Yeah I don't think gifts if then if they thought they were close to winning like if it's Gilmore. Being here. Really meant a lot to bear chances of winning next year's us please not an important player. But went out with him without him there's too many other big questions quarterback for example. Think it if they were all sat. I can see them may be living with paying the tax oil and thinking like we we need this is a U we need to have as good years we can possibly have right now. Because we've traded for Tony Romo or you know it Taylor had taken a step last year it was a no brainer that he should quarterback so ready to really go after it. But I think short of that analogy that didn't happen we don't know about Romo then the guy I I yeah I imagine him getting a boatload of money somewhere. Absolutely look I mean going back to last offseason I don't think ever viewed him as a top five corner I mean here's a guy. Going this year never made a Pro Bowl as an alternate initiative as a third altered he won going. Though he missed games because of the way he tackles and by the way that we he tackles the department tweet and I am not trying to. Help actually guy with a lot bottom line is he does not like to stick his nose in there and you know at its heart it if you're a guy that much money either a. He better be a lockdown or shutdown corner on every team's number one receive your company's gonna win most battles. A weekly basis or be better we'll do a lot of the other things. That it takes to. You know make up for that like ill be really good tackler in run support and it would be personal plea in the slot play all over the field. Those kind of guys who thinks that bond pits and any of those categories nobody is a good player but he is he's a good player you'll pay good players. Top five money in this. Care to handicapped who the opening day starting quarterback is. Between. Hey look I notices every day's question. It's I love it I sole interest thing there so many possibilities. What's less. Well. Remember what we do we did this I I didn't show with Ryan when Bulldog was off one day and took calls from people like what would you put the odds that. And we ended up around 5050 on Tyrod. And then. Karr dale was second but still kind of lol and I had the rookies in one group Watson said Iraq. And other veterans like you know temperament. I'd say fifty card jail. 5050 starts week one yeah while it is 5050 do you think tyra is gone and yeah I mean on the list of. Geologist yet I think last year he stays the cartel Jones starts right now. But I don't I don't say I think he's gone I just as is trading right now I I. Think that there's more chance it Cargile Jones as the starting quarterback picture that Tyrod Taylor is as they sit here today on February 13 but laden. You know he still I think he's still in that conversation and discussion maybe 25%. And the other 2.5 percent. Divided up amongst. No I wouldn't say rookie. Probably put a probably put a rookie and immediately about a 15% in one of those veterans out there and. Play it really the quarterback. Situation. Think back to just a few minutes you were talking about receivers we're talking about no more leaving. That I think enhances your need at cornerback in the draft. So I need to receiver I need a corner I need safety help and we need a quarterback a quick. Mean that's a lock. You know and think about whale the talking with Chris Brown. The day that McDermott got hired and you know the process and all that they. I think you start stacking up there needs. Whiff the reality of them getting them all filled this offseason. And I think you're looking at a process here I don't think you're looking at a year where you just hit the ground and go okay I'm go with eleven games. No you don't like I was just talking amid the global blog about Tom you know if you think your clothes and you do that. And or would you maybe Tonto and it went what you guys are talking about that I've. I remember back to I I think that's what they did two years ago we didn't they did at the quarterback. You know they thought maybe EJ and that wanna not being Egypt really. The second year after. You know Terry can about the team essentially they they spent money they went out they were players this was good and LeSean McCoy deal. Jolie play Liz you know paying going to get Charles clay that they went. They went crazy because they felt they were close enough that that they spent a little more money to get a cut to upgrade or get a couple more. You know top players in this league that the drop was gonna be over and they were going to be a playoff team. And it hit more cal and that's part of the reason why they're in the salary cap situation they are now an unattainable for that I think that you know. That is case but the thing that held back it was the quarterback I mean. They they played good defense they certainly had a good a defense that year and the quarterback play wound up being so inconsistent. That cost them their their stated goal the beginning. There's a good article I'm Jimmy grow up almost future today a pro football focus and be named three teams for him. And I spent a lot of time thinking about this and I thought it was it was interesting Cleveland San Francisco and Chicago. Who happen to have the first three picks in that order of the draft. Cleveland with the most picks to use in a trade. San Francisco with unpredictability of the top of the organization now like for me and I'd I norms stereotyping. For Reid John Lynch. Leaves cushy broadcasting. And also played in the league a long time so I feel like that's old methodologies. That's a team that trades for quarterback closers hired a quarterback coach Wright and Shanahan. So maybe San Cisco makes sense there but the few that as many picks to trade could be next year's number one it was speculated this article. And then the bears who have made trades with the patriots before Martellus Bennett. And you have a coach and Penn grapple I went to college in the area. That a coach who has spent a lot of time with Rob Lowe was all laid out of this piece. And that was all pretty interest thing each team would have given different reason to think any of those three teams would be a favorite. For Barack blow but whatever happens there of course a major. Factor in what happens in the draft. Who is the biggest who's the first most important I guess domino is it Tyrod Taylor or is Jimmie grapple. I think it because. When one happens here it's gonna set off a chain reaction around the league maybe it's Tony Romo I. I in my I think it's Tyrod guys I think Tyrod the decision the bills make that Tyrod Taylor I think. Impacts the rest of the quarterback market more than any decision on Jimmy problem because now suddenly if the bills do it. They're also a team. Looking for want whoever gets him is probably either a getting rid of a guy or. At the very least on he becomes the number one quarterback and a free agent market. Right he's a regional trade for him I don't giving up anything to get him what you would Rob Lowe and maybe even for Romo will see here's one reason why that could be right once scenario that could be right. The browns. And in this was also written in the pro football focus thing. Would the browns want to trade for drop below with the condition of their team with their status maybe not like it that we don't always it's acknowledged in his piece. You don't know what they think of him. Spring like the rim rumors about him and the browns. I think I would like Taylor also because it cost no draft picks. For Cleveland more if he if he came free and so yes like what happens after that Cleveland my point here really is. Cleveland has enough draft ammunition. For teams like New England with a player to wanna wait. Weighed on Cleveland let's see what Cleveland will do for us they've got the twelfth pick they've got to second round picks but let's see what the browns decide to do and then. Will make her move because Cleveland if Cleveland wants to make the best deal with draft picks canned. Just to get off also offer the most money. With all the cap space it has a Cleveland really has the hammer it might be Tyrod but I would say it is Tyrod if the browns like them because the browns have the most power I think here. I don't know what the browns think of Jimmy grapple but I think that party signaled that theirs they wanna start building this thing up instead of yes being where they were because they made it treat Regina college and then they signed him. Yes to a huge extension I think that's a signal right there that's the first thing that says okay we're done with this week tore it down now it's are they now we need to go the other way so. If you're going to trade for Jimmy drop below you have to have a deal in place and you're signed to long term deal of course are not just gonna trade form. On his one year remaining on his deal he's also armed. You know he's also a little bit younger than Tyrod Taylor and I think he would fit the timeline for them more than what more for what they want. Going forward because they could probably get them you know they said now at a time where the rest of their team was kinda just starting to get to where they need to go. As far as the direction in the upswing so I think that would make sense for them more as is Jimmy horrible we likely to wait in Seoul. What march 11 on Taylor. We'll know so I think we'll know something as I don't think they suddenly on March 11 were going to find now I think something's gonna come out whether it's from me or somebody else in the media. Somebody's gonna know something about what their plans are. But yeah I mean they have until March 11 and I would expect them to use pretty much the majority of the next three weeks to figure this thing. All right any questions for us. No are you on where you going to spring training here so odd thing about all day at at. Maybe Don Eaton I've never been to the needn't see the jays so possibly I think it's march 3. Maybe I've never been to Tampa for game either yankees while I have. But it's it's a big spring training stadium obviously because the Yankees I set up top to watch them but some you know they. Obviously dropped pretty big crowd there too it's a Yankee spring training is pretty crazy that you go there and you know so people get you only get one shot if you look around their lead to go in. Check out that teams those particles each other just say that the Legends Field I think that would be cool. Might be crazier than the rays regular season in Tampa it might hear about it until you. It'd LA this year all right thank you sell your welcome guys.
