These cell comply GO. Well cup unsealed so I'll go bungee ills go bungee don't sound gut punch yields down coupons CEO. Upon GO sound coat but I feel on WGR. Quick rundown of the day's headlines. Org itself but you on the AT&T hotline free agency contract period or contact period opens in noon today in the NFL he can't sign anybody until Thursday. Builds really stand copper to Mickell Roby Coleman. And garrison Sanborn they clear out about 56 million dollar in cap space. The bills have awful I've tendered and offered a restricted free agent Mike Gillis we will with the latest from sell on that NHL GM meetings. Underway sabres and flyers 730 at keybank senator. Tonight Mickens and NBC sports network came so if you want to hear the call turned on the television from the radio. And Andrew Bogut broke his leg in a minute. And that's about it first minute first game with the caps for him operate broke his leg and LeBron said he heard break. If you were heard a bone break not salad ever heard a bone break. Think I have like you remember it right yeah I I I I'm pretty sure I'd seen some pretty gruesome pictures of her greatly. Particularly great there now you've seen secretly gruesome in person to act knee injuries it like it or breaks but you know it pretty. You know I. Terrorists so again and they did their twisted and things like I heard the sound of a of a batted ball hitting a pitcher in the forehead. That flak that makes that's I think that's the yeah I was there was a long time ago is in the seventies tonight clear forever scarred for life. But I think that's that I don't think have ever heard a guy wonderful like sell your on the sidelines tonight I hope this doesn't ever happen that you would actually. Yeah I'd be near a play and actually your bones snap. Nine I remember remember when them. I guess what that may be easier schema CJ Spiller came in the team against Minnesota I think it was knee he went down hurt shoulder. I saw in the way Heatley added that was pretty bad that I went there was just looking at but I think that he was in a lot of pain of these like that but luckily had never actually saw that thing. You know do that Saddam haven't haven't Buckley and you're right I hope I don't have had the opportunity to succeed after that. They've let me correct so that insane and I am. I may be wrong on this I saw tweet yesterday about the Tyrod situation that that would have to make in a a decision by 4 PM Friday to get it into the league. I could be completely wrong on that we're trying to confirm whether it's an early deadline Friday or they can take it to Saturday. So I'm I'm waiting for confirmation on that but I I just tried mentioned it earlier that might be completely wrong so he may need to disregard when I told you about that yeah I'm weighing as well and I read that. And I heard you say it and I just wish I'll just be careful I don't know if that's the case because it wouldn't make sense to me the first day of the newly year's march 9 at 4 PM. The second data newly years either 4 PM march 10. Or midnight march 10 which makes the third day either midnight march 11 or 4 PM march 11 and a and I was told it would BM 4 PM march 10. And I was told this Tommy year because of what's going on a league year opens up the league pretty much operates 1247 basis so that's not like they. Hey it's Friday at that would shut the opera Dallas your body Monday night so they probably will be able to take it Saturday. I I think that's the case that will as soon as any of us know you guys Jimmy will make sure what sells so fit today's Tuesday. Your feeling chance to either way about hey we're about trying to know Jeremy is gonna make a point about Tyrod and in the 9 o'clock hour so when a toll steal his thunder but. What kind of influence to Sean McDermott carry in the bills' organization right now. A lot. He is. Believe me I tell you that Sean McDermott would not have signed up for this job. With you know weighing you know that he would be a guy that also have more opportunities on his way to his age and as he's been building. He would not sign up for this job that he didn't have. He wasn't told in you know agreed upon have a pretty major influence in this organization now that doesn't mean that he's only the final say because to remember even from drama here so my. It is instructor just what the day about the about the Ito 53 he said Doug as affecting. So so I I mean. Maybe the ultimate aim is still gonna be I don't really decides who's on the actual roster goes tree in the subway dat but I guarantee you he has a major influence in that room. So aside a prediction they mean and not ask you will this happen this way but. If they bring back Tyrod Taylor to me this indicates that they signed with the coach over the Aegean. Mean I don't think Doug Whaley has been a huge Taylor fan and he wants to find somebody that's that's. Somebody else. And when I'm in white Whaley might end up being a victim of circumstance and a victim of timing here. Because if they pick Taylor that's all well and go to I don't think they'll make the playoffs and they'll have to fire someone. And the fact will be of their X I shouldn't have I have to but they might. And they party's side with the coach over this GM the GM won't have picked the coach she won't really have picked the roster because he doesn't pick the starting quarterback. So then it becomes. All right tailors back Whaley is gone McDermott and weigh you down McDermott and Taylor are still here and a new GM comes in he takes the quarterback of the future who knows if they're high enough to draft wanted the guys at the top next year but. I just think it's it's sets everything up for a way les eventual departure if Tyrod is brought back because that siding with the coach over the GM. I would I would say that vacuum I would say that it sets it up if that happens in they're not successful I mean if I write is back. Act in their successful I don't. He can and yet we can you know gather around the fire it's available we did you know I mean. Yup no it's true I just don't anticipate them being all that tournament that the schedule is really what scares me away I look at. Who they play. And there are not a lot of variables on the scheduling not people like to point out that from year to year your schedule can change. And and that's true you can have injuries to Matt Ryan and robberies which make those games much easier but for the most part. When the schedule comes out when your list of opponents comes out you look at the divisions you crossover against the think. How good other quarterbacks and the bills might be playing the two toughest divisions crossing over the they possibly could be. And they're crossover games against what Indianapolis. And Munich it just looks like a really tough velvet and the bill's gonna go in. With a coach in his first year coordinator working with a quote a quarterback for the first time together I just. It's it doesn't really look to me like it's going to be. There's the the season that ends the drought but then again a couple of course once that happens to everybody that works there is a made man. Why I would say Jeremy that I think that Willie's job is going to be talked about all your two regardless of quarterback and I think this team doesn't. Make major strides have success into the playoffs whatever I don't know if there's a certain benchmark or anything that I think that they. He could very well not be the GM in 2018 regardless of who the quarterback is in. And that's why I think it's really interesting if they wind up going with a young guy card ale or rookie. Boy I mean that's that's he's got stoned to do that unless the owners have told him you're safe because I can't the other be better. Solid state TNT hotline here 8030550. To join us in 88550 to 515. Regular column on asked about free agent targets Cynthia contact period opens and a few hours Greg you're on a cell here on WG arbor right ahead. Morning guys morning alarmed other watch a lot of a great book on unwind what Tyrod Taylor. You know what popped up in my head awaiting get a Korea based but it happening wide receivers broke do your view about the court interview coach. We haven't paid a quarterback could be a quarterback and over decades. Though why are we not just. There should be eat we call it a man. Al get a itty rookie here. There's no guarantees they look at each day. Look at that back they're you know city and and that's the process I think we should go a lot. This is that they need to call and let see what they put America wide receiver corps. And and if you go on but this critic. Appreciate all of comets make everything bank for cyclical. Thanks Colin thanks Fred well more often and I want a guy went when you have a quarterback and you draft someone as the future. It's. I should Miami can actually lock this down case to case but it strikes me that usually happens when that guy is so good. That you can afford to use a first or second round pick because you know your team's gonna be good like when Aaron Rodgers gets drafted by the Packers. The tigers only differ from that Brett Favre is so good that they can spend a year on the future. If the bills bring back Tyrod Taylor I do not expect him to draft a quarterback at ten. And I would say it's maybe a long shot in the second round and our getting the third and fourth round and you've already got a guy cardinal Jones soul but ultimately it looks to me that. If you bring back Taylor you're not going to sign you're you're not going to trade quarterback yeah right right so. That I understand. Keep them in draft one OK but Sean McDermott if he if he brings Tyrod Taylor back in wants to bring Taylor back it's because he wants to win. As soon as possible up and then it becomes our right well tenth pick we get when as soon as possible safety. And then second round up we got angrier RC were and then third round I'm going to be a linebacker defensive and then you've gone another year without picking your quarterback so. Cell while these while it's a good idea in theory. If the bills re signed Tyrod they bring him back do you see them going quarterback in the first two rounds are we talking third round earliest. Here are actually recollection I don't come I don't see it accurately. That they. Maybe second round I don't see how can I do not see taking a look at you gonna bring back our dealer. If they had pick number 23 year 24 I think we understand that they hit it might do it they might look at our route as the bridge. But the number ten you can get an elite prospect. But another position you respect directly or you're trying to win Iraq how is that you got LeSean McCoy back you're trying to get them you can kind of plug and play. So I would not say that I I I agree that if they bring back bring him back a bit like every so funny. I guess so we tweak every day I get it people are excited they want the trap. We need to build what position it and I'm like I don't know to be the quarterback is about what you might think that might go at it and accurate that. Yeah I I wouldn't expect it any any of those top three picks ally I think if they bring. Tyrod back it's it's were trying to make and the job right now when you're gonna go fill your needs and again you are talking about a team that Dawson had a lot of salary cap space even with the moves and maybe it'll make more moves maybe the cuts and guys regular restructure guys. They still don't have a ton of cap space so. You know they may look at it and say the glaring holes that we have have to be addressed in the draft that that's that indeed the case you're not gonna take one of your two were first three picks they don't have a fourth rounder. And spend it on a quarterback I I wouldn't expect them to do that but it it's took to the Tyrod question south to the point from the caller. It's not a no brainer and you're making up a big commitment it isn't necessarily guys it's sixty million dollar cap number this year we can make it fit. You because of the contract the way it's structured your pick you're committing to him for two years. Maybe three because of the dead cap money you'd have to suffer if you walk away from him after the 20s17 season so if you pick up if you pick up the option or you say. Hey Tyrod sticking around the I think it Sean McDermott's way of saying to the front office and ownership. This is our guy for two if not three years and we'll figure out what to do after that or keep drafting somebody. Our record really. I think there's a rush to say here let's let's just. Come down or document saying it. Don't win it doesn't want him because back it's. Civic atomic era won some sort of battle the epicenter of the case but really maybe just digging all the other options before you decide okay I'm gonna bring him back. Because I don't. I don't like the other options out there but I agree I need to bring him back I mean when you hear about Mike like that making 1415 million dollar a year. You can get probably get attire regular sixteen making it a lot more easier summit if you're not really I don't think. If I regular cause Beckett simply means Sean McDermott one stared out without really I think you're very spot possible that we usually the last possible moment. To see because of any other options. Entire regular would be the state that you just say okay well I don't Obama to bring him back. But that's a that's where we are right now is that the bills are exploring other options. The free agency contact period opens today they have until Friday kind of Friday Saturday to figure out if they can if they can do when he batterer. One thing's for sure sell if they do end up with Tyrod. What will it be unfair to say safe to say that. Granted this is who they feel is their best quarterback option for this year but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're happy about it. Yes. I think or they're not happy about the financial dot. Yeah they are I guess I think even even Sean McDermott I think anybody that building. Would love to have our killer back at a reduced price and I think that they hate. The right spirit and basically say yeah Abby maybe maybe Eric can limit it more but anybody would love them to reduce its really get more players. Yet even even in the kiss or. Yet not happy about it or while we're not really partly the price we want it we couldn't do other things we wanted but this is what we got to deal. Side over relate but real quick read cells article. And it's there's more detail about some guys that he thinks the bills could could should or could target at WGR 550 dot com. Top a couple of names or ideas to use in free agency of the bit you know what wide receiver. Safety goal line what position should they go after shall what what should the bill's plan B in free agency in your opinion. I think if you're gonna allocate like some good money I think that that money has to be in the secondary considering. The uncertainty at safety of their Williams may be the Corey Graham. Hello we call me god uncertain even LeBron guarded has played last year right now lucky bounce Seymour here number two I guess so I that you have to allocate your gonna allocate. More might be in the secondary I'm not talking about one and he looked like it except on a lot of pumpkin thrown ten million dollar to the guy or working out right. We knew what he wants. Maybe you have to pay somebody. Seven or eight million dollars if you can get it Tony Jefferson from Arizona. Thank you go do it if you get a Micah Hyde from Green Bay who played every position in the secondary essentially and you go do it I think go to the kind of guys where you. Speculative I think the type of receiver you need but I think Cordero Paterson hit exactly what Doug Whaley loves doesn't really loves. Return men special teams guys. Who have terrific athletic ability who can play wide receiver and Cordero is. Literally one of the best return men of all kind of their guilt there's a whisper or your. Any if any came out at receiver I wouldn't expect a lot of money being allocated to other places like. You gotta find somebody the O line got by some linebackers so I wrote about some guys I put them out there and some reasoning and you can obviously make some connections and ties. AJ Klein and he everybody Carolina giving putting a Jakarta built into the back up Saluki glee Carolina he knows Sean McDermott's defense I would expect him to definitely be injured it. We'll be in such as always mr. hot show it's a busy week so don't don't stray from your phone. I doubt he is again and read his article WGR 550 dot com and and we'll keep talking about it at the period opens up. Later today at. Noon.
