Duplicate human partner Dow Jones is here Donald you can. Almost feel the pace of things. Keep up a little bit both here in Orchard Park and around the national you know I said this yesterday you know for policies is back. With the I don't. You you can feel it you can. Obviously today's news this Thursday where you can start to talk these players and you probably start to hear a lot of different things come now what they're being offered. From Tiffany to stage it's going to be the ones that weakness though and so society for all fans especially you know fans near buffalo. But fans around the lead. We'll start to hear what names are being linked seeded team is excited to everybody. And then it's like old law. Yet if he you know just because these guys being signed doesn't mean you know and it's Super Bowl but it is. Side let's get a hold up with all the reports and there will be at least two days of reports about who's going where who might go where what the situation is. And not of that becomes official as far as free agent signings until Thursday but we have entered a new phase of the NFL offseason with the the start today of via negotiation period it's a two day negotiation period that begins today for free agents and the league just that starts like right now like two minutes ago. Me and let me read the league release and visit to an eight negotiation period for prospective unrestricted free agents guys who will become free agents on Thursday. Started two minutes ago and Thursday this Thursday march 9 at 4 PM. During this period teams including the bills are permitted contacted. And her in the contract negotiations with the agents of players who become unrestricted free agents 4 o'clock on Thursday all clubs can negotiate all aspects of a potential deal. With the certified agent but a new club may not execute the contract until 4 PM on Thursday when the contract expires. That's where error in the NFL that's where the Buffalo Bills are today. And that serves as one of the bases Ferrara discussion today we'd love to hear from you fault lines open 8030550s. And number. Told free from outside buffalo 1888550. To 515. Or you can do it by a Twitter at John Murphy show so there's that the free agency period agree to talk about the average the bills are today making some news. I'll talk a little bit about that at the bottom of the sorrow going to be joined by running back Mike Gillis who had a couple of good years. The bills touchdown Mike you know the stories come on in relief of a shady McCoy and and a very good job for the bills as they a backup running back today. The bills set out tender offers to Mike Gillis clean and guard Ryan brought. Yes tender offers for ridiculously and growing. That means they have the right of first refusal. For these players means of another team wants to sign my fabulously running griped the bills have the right to match it. And if they don't the bills get compensation. For both of them in the Casey Gillis link the bills tendered it. Andy original draft bound preference status fifth round so if another team were to sign my carelessly or try to sign Mike Kinsley. First of all. The bills again and it and an attempt to match the offer if not they get a fifth round draft pick for Mike it was a grind Roy. Tendered the right of first refusal so bills enacted and he compensation draft wise for rank right they would get. A chance to match. There retreat restricted free agents for the bills you're mostly right growing goes to Richard tender offers today. And putter cold Schmidt actually there for particle Schmidt in linebacker hiking Ammann Polly. No tender issued for a cold Schmidt and Nike and Polly so they become free agents yes Goldschmidt will become a free agent on Thursday at 4 PM. None of this means the bills cannot continue to negotiate with these players including colts met Evan Polly if they want him and and jealously of course and a and right growing infect you would think that rather than pay them via the tender offer you would think the bills would try to get them both. Under a longer term deals you'll see and running grow. But they were restricted free agents those two give mostly in growing two of the four restricted free agents they've both been tendered contract offers of the pills. In essence retain their rights. Which is you know. That was two days to be a bill special chambers yesterday. With paint carpenter now. Who loves these San him monitors and Sam born and now Colin Smith doesn't get it tender souls to updated the appeals special team or. And it's them via a long couple weeks couple months for Danny Grossman the the bills that these coats it he's going to happen. You know work alongside dug well in those guys to find. If they can't it's been that they can expand postman in a map fund ticker. And a partner and a long snapper who else was going to be a lot of work for him and I'm sure he's up to the task but. As far as my jealously I do feel like. I hope they can retain him are really do I do think he's a very good complement to. To shady McCoy now are there other backs out there yet you can you can even draft one later in the draft the something like that. When you have a guy who. It's productive as he is especially. In the red zone especially inside that did you know the tackle box I think you should keep that guy think if shady McCoy goes down and we know he's getting up there in age you can plug my Dallas millionaire and he can. Hamm of low forty's you know it and so for me I feel like they knew they need to do all that they can do to keep them. And they have the right to do that now in absence of a contract now they have. Reserve the right to do that with a tender offer for my queue mostly and look at somebody else values might give mostly in. And wants to swoop in and make him an offer that the bills that choose not to match okay. I mean he is a backup running back how much value do you put on a backup running back that's debatable you and it's free agency can't have everybody want but. I feel pretty good about the Arab emirate we'll see ridiculous success at the bottom of the hour Mike Gillis is in join us in the bottom of the hours he. What his level of interest is in coming back to buffalo I would think we instead put. We'll see what he says directly when we talk with a it does he wanna come back. Probably would be have to listen offers from other teams have their out there absolutely he should you know he should look out for himself. And the bills have the right to match him for so there and pretty it's a spot with you mostly could they lose I'm sure they cut somebody wants to mimic human being offered and and the pills would get some compensation port. By putting a fifth round tender on him. You know you do you limit the amount of money that you have committed at least now towards Mike Gillis so the bills trying to fit everybody in the camp. And that's why they want to put the fifth round tender Mike Gillis a cold Schmidt. Joints as you said carpenter and a and garrison Sanborn who were released yesterday along with Nico Roby Coleman and that the tide and Thomas but come. You know they can still negotiate with Goldschmidt they may want to demand also wanna take a look around with you there's another potter out there. But they did not issue area tender offer cold Schmidt which which makes sense you know you don't want to have that. Tied up money yeah right now and tender offer to any of these guys if you you know that you can get better maybe the independent medical judgment. But we are on the cusp of free agency it is just a couple of days away we're gonna talk with Mike you'll see at 1230 steep task is gonna join us in studio at 1 o'clock we'll get his thoughts on policy. Business of the NFL where the bills are going. Still no news on the the buffalo quarterback situation we know that. It is down to a couple of days now and we assume that general manager Doug whaling and the head coach John McDermott are deep in consultation now with the options that they've. Kind of examined at the account by last week with probably the out. The research they did it become mine last week about their quarterbacks who might become available and what these strip patrol about. You would anticipate that they had at least there was one reported meeting with the that Tyrod Taylor's agent at the common last week so you'd anticipate the bin discussions and and the picture's gonna clear up in a couple of days here for the quarterback and everybody else. But we have no new information on Tyrod Taylor the deadline courses Thursday afternoon for them to exercise their option him. I mean enough fully expect him to go down to the wire on Tyrod Taylor and we talked about it why did they don't have to make a decision. You make a decision when you have to meet to deuces and so I think they want to make sure that. You know if there's another quarterback becomes available. Or if they're just trying to work did you allow. You know be a happy that they don't have to make the decision until the time is right and so I think it's going to go down to wire and I feel like it's gonna go down to the wire with every decision. With a new coach coach McDermott. They're gonna go down to the wire with every decision that they made so I wouldn't expect anything to really come out early you know just warning you bills. Sit tight and we. Did that 82 and in all week noon to three rate here. Our Twitter poll it's not really a poll today because there is no way to just issue a few options here an original idea. They call the legal tampering and elect a college the two day negotiation period for upcoming pre release the hampering. But you you've probably seen lists or you can easily find lists of potential free agents around the league some guys will come loose in the next few days that we you know about. If money didn't matter though this is our Twitter question you can bring in an analyst on the owner participate by a Twitter if money didn't matter. For instance if there was no salary cap should be the bill's primary target in free agency. And who do you think should be their number one target only target. We have a sense I think that those are gonna make some moves in the free agency coming up on Thursday could start but who should be their primary target. Tweet it in or go activists call owning your answers at 8030550. The tool free from outside buffalo 1888552. But if the money were not the factor. Who should be the bill's main target their primary target. In free agency let us know to think 8030550. Tool free 1888550. 2550. I am a preliminary answer on this and this is all pie in this guy because. In saint money doesn't matters is stupid really but money does me well meant that as everybody else but. I'd like that Tony Jefferson who's expected to hit free agency. And I think he would probably be fit for this buffalo roster safety and which we although the uncertainty about Erin Williams. Many of us feel they need and operate even appoint him back at the safety spot com you know Arizona Cardinals have a problem. I think it's market might be something the bills did port so I don't know what Tony Jefferson is my. Wish list free agent that the bills would sign if money were not factors anybody in. Karma I don't necessarily have one player in mind I just think that they need to look at. The offensive tackle position I think with the injury to Cyrus on Joseph. Not knowing what's gonna happen with him you need to look at that position and I feel like. The safe the DBs while receiving the draft is so deep that you could pick up talent in those positions right there. The office to tackle you need to probably spend their money on through free agency so I would like to see him go with an office attack on shore up that writes out of office the line. Give it to call do you think who should be the bills' number one target when it comes to free agency. 8030550. Toll free 1888552. By fifty. Or via Twitter at at John Murphy should there's this issue which came up in mid morning today. Steve Christie won the bills all time players really maybe the all time kicker for the franchise. On FaceBook. Issued this posted. Steve Christie issued this early today elected wish the very best to a game carpenter. Andy's future endeavors it's not easy kicking in buffalo for the record I did offer to help them but was told by the GM that he would not be receptive to outsiders. You would think after kick in for nine years wouldn't be considered an outsider but. I genetics but rather inexperienced. Resource that was available go to oval specialist in the time of need. Steve Christie offered his services and carpenter. For the record he says I offered help but was told by the Gian that he wouldn't be receptive to outsiders he mean I would think game carpenter. I would think Edmonton and carper said thank you. Appreciate what you've done great career no thank you aren't. And here's the thing players have. Obviously players have a certain way. Of doing things a certain technique of doing things players also have the guys that they work with an offseason. And so just because you world player here well respected players here. Doesn't mean that I necessarily want to work with the another reason is. Just because you were a player doesn't mean that you can coach Wright knows so I have all of these different reasons. And if the player himself says listen I'm you know thank you I respect you but. I'm OK. You gotta be OK with that as as that former players you know because. Players want to deal with who they're used to dealing with they wanna deal with the guys that they trust they wanna trade with the guys that they trust. I don't want to come in and change the way I'm doing things because that's gonna Romeo law now I'm not being from I did it done. That's something that I have to live with but I China with a guy who I trained with in the offseason and Estes. And players do that kickers do that Ryan Lindell prolonged time consulted with the the guy kind of a fitness. You know flexibility guru Mackie shall soon down and a New Orleans that he spent a lot of time with every offseason kickers do that a lot. I also think there's a model here and tasker can speak to a a model here that put up by Tom Thurman Thomas Jim Kelly they're here. Stand on the sidelines I know Thurman has regular dialogue with that is running backs with a lot of players and you know there were questioned they go to him right and it it and I get it Steve Christie made the offer you would think Dick arbiter probably didn't want extra voices in his head didn't want. You know extra advice no way whether you're struggling united nobody knew. More than game partner about the state of his game and I would think that he probably politely as signals so that we deal. The kicker position with the technique and everything it's it's. Like kickers a different people you know and so they don't want different voices and their head they don't want to change the technique the way of doing things we talked about this earlier in the season. With so many takers were missing kicks. And we talked about we kept asking why they missed and so many Catholics and they were saying because they move. The because they changed to kick off it's changed the way they take field goals now and insists changes thrown off their stats and everything like that and so. Every little thing can change especially for kicker and they don't want all these different voices and it's especially Pete has a guy that he trains with an offseason. Yep so and so there's that and then the bills issued a statement a little bit ago. That reads this like this Steve Christie is a valuable member of our alumni community we appreciate all the is on for this organization. He's the bills all time leading scorer top field goal kicker in team history we appreciated is offered to us is stand in that was communicated to him. But we all just felt it was in the best interest they have been continuous working relationship with the coaches so. I don't know tempest in the teapot I think not a whole lot going on there but people are talking about so so were the right. I mean you just had to address it but. The fact of the matter is that's just how players are men that this is who I train with this is a watch for us we can talk. The Nassau goods like if if I'm they re wanted to talk to me as some might say yeah we can talk are that doesn't mean that I want you to train me right in our respect you as a hall of Famer and all of us though that does not mean and I want you to China happy dot lights and with an offseason. And that's just how you have to look and understand that as at former player. All right so all of us this is on the table today you're welcome to join us to discuss the bills that with a five moved yesterday including releasing. A Dan Carpenter and garrison Sanborn and cal Roby Coleman. The bills with the two moves today. Tender offers issued to running back Mike you're listening and guard right offensive lineman Ryan growing note tender offer for particle and Schmitt the up free agency. On negotiation period the two days negotiation period is that underway and that we wanna hear if you have any thoughts on. Maybe who you know money wasn't a factor we Betsy the bill's going after. Here it's call 8030550. The number toll free 1888550. To 550. Or by Twitter at John Murphy show start what puts in buffalo globe which welcome the show. Die in battle tank so much like tomorrow cause aren't pleasant to talk to you. I you know relatives just talked to and produced there now to tell him that this happened this roster the bottle those rosters already gone yet to build. Second half of a lot. Now we Internet you know when you're building a second half of something when your problems. That's really considered Ratko rebuilt. Am looking at the Buffalo Bills in the position and I applaud them for giving written summary hard towards stature and all the important actions and then. It really do too much for our football they went on to reach its UK but. But the same time I applaud them just got them now moving forward tennis acknowledges says you mark you know so. The track is going to be deep tissue is going to be deep in the dirt for it's extra maybe even an undrafted free agency. I'm the sort of build debate be move back a couple of times. Maybe if a person that you detected pick up more predicts. Sort of mid round and at the same time talent money wise spinning cast on the regular doses its U outlet that it was too bad but. The bills looked at it Samoa and there just well take weeks if somebody else sign that the same times of their backs and entrapment you can bill. Right now the ball bulldozers into rebuilding mode which is sorry and you know wetness and Bill Russell faulty. The economy ya learn. They're in the sister these coaches as to did these two coaches come and play. Saying I'd like to do and we're picking Brady getting older eventually there will never drop on the we be ready to walk forward so I mean those are two Q handicap it. I unplugged that's is on the football team just because their names. Let's just let it build its aims to money in Jordan who football players and enjoyed oracle bought David goes organization reports we've supposed to go. But thank you so much I love you got to thank you so much that they DiMarco. Thanks courts I had an amateur is what you advocating a total. About terror down and rebuilt and that your think he was saying this is reboot right now you know and it doesn't he was and it doesn't make sense to teach high priced veterans right now he's he says. The patriots at some point gonna drop off one's pretty retires the next army is that's going to be I don't want to retire as a drop off. And if you build this thing out then you'll be ready when they drop off this news. Thank you for interpreting definitely a candidate would which set I think look I think they can now get better this year. Seven wins last year eight the year before I think they are within striking distance of the playoffs but here and I'd like to see Emma. Make them move this year make that strike this year while replenishing the roster and getting reduce over the overpriced and maybe a less valuable pieces that you talked about Portsmouth. I'm not advocating a total rebuild here in that goes. A lot to the quarterback question which we discussed. And went thousands of that there is Mike and we feel well Mike welcome your on the air this. I. Interpreter were cut is it. Usually you don't pick up any kicker from Madrid after rarely hear us under free agents out there that the bill could pick up that he kicked. Battle carpenter Adam left or right. Well I guess I haven't really looked at the free agent field of kickers let me see if I. Yeah I mean I think at a lesser price would be pretty easy to find somebody right at a lesser price and now the. Yeah I mean this is certainly going to be easy to find somebody who has apprised the problem is do you fun and their ticket and how many takers you have to go through before you finally did take me to question. Stephen how much is expected to be released by TO I have elusive kickers here he beat someone they they have Butler walls are ready. So Stephen house you'd probably be the number one target in free agency who else Nick Folk jets' nick Novak Robbie Gould. Greg's are lying Phil Dawson Mike Nugent. Some old veterans there but Toby Toby names out there in this and typically with kickers there are names that we don't even know you know the free agents are sort of but you know under the radar may be bounced around a few teams this requires some pretty good scouting and and pretty good you know unearthing of talent on the the the part of scouts and and data crosswind quite frankly in ginza. His coach he says they've got to know who's out there but there are some names out there house get expected to be out there in Nick Folk is out there and now he's a free agent now. I hear is our mark in Niagara Falls all are welcome here on the air. Yeah just Warner and have all this talk about Tyrod remember hearing saying what's happening with the EJ Manuel. But it probably gonna get rather awarded just gonna keep in Cuba on the bench he's. On restricted range understood that they decide enough to pick up that option right. Well and anything yet and I doubt they will and. And off. Until noon middle what what's happening or them I haven't heard a. When inspect them I mean they haven't done anything yet to be free to actors he'll be a free agent now wouldn't expect him try to bring him back an and I think that the new coach stuff wanna move on and speak. Would say observers say Marquardt of cooperate more lets say mark we missed. I looked which I around the gonna give the week. Because that's if you look at buffalo sister have and actually I went last time off whoever developed a franchise quarterback. Well it would have been Jim Kelly yeah over that taught what is the history got to do that and there's new owners new GM's new coaches I don't know what roll history to play. Next are her idea of an answer and Turkey about. Can you repeat that. We never quarterback. As a minute or you'll. They haven't been a good quarterback to keep it. The announcement the mean look at the last however many quarterbacks which one would you say we need to keep decked out you wouldn't argue that for India. Under old management they decided in elected to keep right Fitzpatrick and probably regretted that when results and unfurled it kept money but. Yet buy me a guy who's worth keeping an I think they'll probably try to keep. That's the details on the zone's benchmark we're gonna take a break Mike jealously scheduled to join us in a couple of minutes here he was. Tendered an offer by the Buffalo Bills today the backup running back LeSean McCoy. We'll take your temperatures he what he thinks about its tender offer today and what it means for his future. Just get started in Orchard Park John Murphy show we are presented by NAPA Auto Parts. A Buffalo Bills read. What objectives notes that were beaten Donald Jones year. And our Orchard Park studio what eight why are you 8030552031888552. By fifty. Got a lot of the table today at the seed Kristi issue we talked about and I don't we put that to bed maybe get some more to say about that might give mostly tendered a contract offer today along with Ryan great Mike Gillis the gonna join us here on the show a couple of minutes. A fifth round candor we talked about the reasons for that Donald rank pretenders while. The bill you know the bills clearly air you know on the tightrope here you wanna you want Mike Gillis so you tender and offering you reserve your rights. You don't want overpaid Mike you'll see because he's a backup running back he does have value to your team. You I wanna reserve your rights or you can continue to negotiate maybe get a longer term deal. And you make the calculation. You don't want to over tender you don't want to overpay. Because he is in fact backup running back it's. You know it's open to second guessing I get that it will be second guessed with them. I think it's the jet I think it's no Smart Smart way to do business and the the hardest. Position he did paid him today epic is running back them you know and it's just because there's so many running backs that come out in recent years. The teams are not doing just the one running back. It's now running back by committee so you have two or three guys that actually pulling away for you and so running backs in not getting paid to top out like they want. And so when you look at it from the bills' perspective it's like. We understand your value to our team but why do we pay you top dollar. When your back up this seat in court now you also have to look at it and say. Long term do we think he can be the guy when Sedin who is not here anymore and however many years that's going to be. Do we think dad might do loosely can be the start in the starting running back. You look at his running style is this a lot that you have to look at him and trying to project running backs into the future. And that's why you do in the fifth round tenders and hopefully you can work something out. I don't expected to be topped out at like you said that the fact of the matter is he is the back of. Yes and how much money wanna tie up and running backs by you know you got a lot tied up in the shop McCourt and if there were any doubt. That the bills some you know work I I think this should erase any doubt about to publish on the court futures on. McDermott said it last week too and he's you know he's foundational player for this rosters it is right now maybe for the next couple years. To some crazy. Reporting over recent weeks you know Rome accords going to be traded. Well if that the case and certainly you would think the bills would be a little bit more protective of Mike knows that right as fast as the maximum misty stated McCoy. Saddest moment fight. Did you ask you to think about these rooms not in your approach to talk. And what happened atonement and he was good news is on the rides. Although method that's you know on this stay away and everybody's like. And she didn't quite as soon to cool it and I'm looking online although there are gone up so I do at least now. Now you're tough you he'd just say what's up you wouldn't know when you're in the Omaha. It's. Have been a couple who what do you want. That they had two people who in them on close close friends lit. Other guys you know if you would do on the rise analysts though I'd just like to be. Don't you have an utterance which I do not have an Obama and the one unit I think to I don't know what Imus. Look there should be any doubt about but analysts have a duty and the that same note of people but at the it's called what do what do you think and give us your thoughts on. You know if you had blank check. Free agency or to go after the view of the Buffalo Bills like Jack anybody you want it. Who'd who'd you think you would go after if you were the Buffalo Bills a couple of tweets on this sticky price no one really blows me away I'd like to serum at Jefferson and anyone but. No more than seven million I agree you know the free agent market dial. You know there's some names come the quarterbacks don't you know Mike Levin nick falls it's talent prepare can't predict. That nobody there for me nobody nobody I mean the receivers I mean Adrian Peterson. This is not needed here so that doesn't even mention yet running back you know now receivers coach and Jeffrey to row prior. I think money yet browsing and ago while I think to keep right right. I think yeah the brown criminal law in their might be another team Nichols of the wall for both of those guys because they're bigger more physical established receivers now on the sleeve in so. They're gonna get paid in the bill's hat to. I think that the situation first of all. It's all gonna come down what happened with tyra you know because of they don't they have that option to freeze up we'll get more money for the in the span at that point. You can say okay we could spend a little bit more and more money on receive whatever position you wanna spend money on. If Tyrod on this team you have to look at and Alice still think even if they don't pick up the option they're gonna look at that second wave of free agents you know trying to find guys that. 34 million years that I attend mania you know so that you can. You can do it good talent but cannot paint topped out. I bill's gonna be active fairly active entries market maybe not a big splash names but like you said second here. And receivers who might dip it in there you know obviously. Cordero Patterson's name has been mentioned. Babies have been here your guy from Ari can we talk about similar but yesterday. Could be if it here because they're now looking for a number one militant for a number two in May be number three right antsy got to move down the list a little bit and there are some names that might fit the bill for buffalo. In receiving corps where there's definitely a need. I think I think so man AGU you have to look at. You're number two receiver has to be gotten really into at all he can get down ability can also run routes and work nominee stuff for you because. Sammy Watkins is you know more receiver he hasn't Davis on the field so that's something you have to take into account. Can you count us and you watch him to be on the field obviously you hope that he can be on the field but he hasn't shown that yet you know also even number two that solid numbers to our receiver and you need to number three that can do everything is well a guy that can help out. Outside in the slot annals busting. Here's an interesting I think thoughtful tweet from Melissa Tim Curran junior. He says I'd honestly go for Ricky Wagner the offensive tackle from Baltimore solidify the offensive line debt that much more. Ricky Wagner listed on many of us just behind like Andrew Whitworth is a potential available guy and that would fill a need I would think I'm Republican analyst Donald and again these are arbitrary. The sky every top fifteen offensive tackles and Jordan middle name is that. So. I can tell you the bills are you know looking for an upgrade and probably gonna have to sign a free agent I would think it and to upgrade the offensive line offensive tackle spot. I think it's Smart way to go we had one of our callers yesterday said it is well I mean. When you have a draft that is buried as deep is what they're saying is because with the experts as saying on the defense side of the ball. That's probably where you should go in the trap and mean you should stay in your money. It's it's also deepen receiver. The thing is this being your money on where it's not that deep and that's often the tackle and so you you'd you need to look at guys that are more established in this league. And you might not have just been top topped out forms Wellington also Smart. Rich Ricky Wagner Baltimore are going to be 28 in October former fifth round pick. Had you know by all accounts a good year with the Baltimore Ravens and so that's the name to watch in an astute listener tweeted that in John Dubuc tweeted. How's John Jeffrey and John Jackson those two along with Sammy. Would be an unstoppable force. So that that's like a dream fantasy world there picnic open those guys on 1250 million years units this one yeah. You know so that's like agreed. You have had eighty million dollars and tapped who's been like that people want to receive just those both those guys first of all wanna be number one receivers. You know so what they decide okay we're gonna go to buffalo. And tested this on to actually in my room beating number three no I wanna be number one at least a number two. Who should be the bill's primary target in free agency that's a question on the table and a you can ring us up let us know to think it 8030550. Or. Told free from outside buffalo 1888550. To 550 or can do it by a Twitter at John Murphy show. Many fiscal PO Tony Jefferson and AJ buoyant we say is regarded as you. He's probably going to be number one corner right one wanted to make more money than the popular more. Yes he's he's highly regarded as the number one reason corner out there you know on the you might hear one or two people. Have Stephon in front of him by. We it is going to be that guy who really breaks the bank and its gonna set the market for Stephon Gilmore you know and and then you'll see where he goes we all expect. You heard Stephon market to be something like fourteen million a year that means bully is going to be at least fifteen you know a little bit higher. Pro football focus is we gave ranked behind Gilmore others have him ahead of them I'm looking at one list that has that lists the corners as Fauria from Houston. In the Logan Ryan in new England and then Stephon Gilmore followed by Morse Claiborne in Dallas in the country Kirkpatrick. You know com. I've never been a Logan Ryan fan and we had a good year for the patriots last year but I don't know I would think that Gilmore has a lot more often than. The Logan Ryan but that's just it went in to pin. Logan I mean Gilmore is into it depends on the defense you know Stephon Gilmore is more of a the he didn't you didn't show early in the season but he's more begin his hands on you man type of corner. Both Ryan is a guy who really can play in all defense is I think he can fit in in a cover two type scheme very Smart corner coming over from that Patriots defense. And so you can in a cover two scheme in his own scheme you need Smart players you need guys that understand his own unique guys that understand what the office is trying to do. Lone run as a guy who you won't have to pay top solidly did. And he's a Smart player I don't know if you'd be able to get them. 8030515. And caught your thoughts on this around the dream free agent who should be the primary target for the bills and free agency summit view of a taken it to the extreme when it comes to a too a Twitter from others are little more you and we're talking about. Other teams free agents and probably believes that sign your own you know Gilmore by Zach brown. Robert Woods it's after I'm good with that and I think they might make an effort to keep some of that particular. Zach brown general though. I go to the wall to keep Stephon Gilmore round but dumped. I'm looking at other teams treat is now is the two day. Negotiation period now is the dreaming period in and we want to dream a little bit who would you like to add to this buffalo roster if money were. We're not a factor realistically you know realistically. Andrew Steele tweets and I don't see the bills making a big splash I think more along the lines of what they did last year second tier free agents yes I do too I think gum. You know guys who are not going to be big splash with guys who who went up your starters. Some of the sixties we talked about some of the corners we talked about some of the offensive linemen the the tackles we talked about. Yeah I think come they're going to be guys who have played in the league and made a name in the league in Maine that you know via headline and ESPN would still be pretty good side I think that's. I think you're likely to think like to see the bill's going in that direction. Jack tweets and safety is a priority. They need to sign one hide Jefferson Adams then draft one in deep class round wanted to Graham okay as number three that's a strategy. That a bit threatened as a said Tony Jefferson numbers on would be my target in free agency and we're assuming he's going to be. Come free on a Thursday Micah Hyde and other good name one of the top ranked preach and safeties and and I do think the draft is based we talked about this like yesterday watching those defensive backs were yesterday Donald. The draft could provide them with the guy acted to draft and develop and you can you can. You can draft the safety and play right away you can start at safety right away he's in. You can definitely draft one and start right away I think everybody who's listening who. Once at their own names and everything just look at the big picture. Right if you were to sign one of these free agency these and you end up paying them. Mr. state seven million dollars a year eight million dollars a year at that point you have to look somewhere else at the first pit. You can because you because the safety pool is so deep you can finally dies in the third fourth fifth round rate so if you sign one. Go somewhere else in the death goal receiver in his draft go somewhere else pick up talent in another position. And then you trap him until markets number ten pick in the and you drag you can draft another one. Later learned that because he's there's still talent later and attract you have to look at the big picture. The bills only have six picks so they have to be Smart about the picks if they sign somebody for agency. You're not gonna sign a safety and then trap one number ten that doesn't make sense at all. Couple of other tweets on this ms. garrido could met till we'll be worth a look former top five pick. Offensive tackle isn't locked down yet you're right offensive tackle is not locked down yet with the shot draw Anderson status in question and Cyrus Kwon Cho injured in. You know Jordan mills gonna hit free agency doesn't appear to be a priority free agent for the Buffalo Bills mature it's Leah. And met a little could be worth a look I don't think he is lived up to his early draft status but. Sometimes those guys can play a little bit. Sometimes they can play a little bit I think it's. You know it's interesting because those guys they have the main because they were early picks in the draft. And it's like when they had the names and times they want the big money. You know when and how much money you wanna sink into that when you have quarter making money you know aside Richie make him money. You have there woods is making money right that you want to seek a lot of money into the right side the right tackle I don't know if you wanted to value. This interesting tweet here print green organ what about JC trap her office of Lyman from Akron new York and no GC. Would be inexpensive he'd probably love to play for his home team JC I think his Mormon interior guy the bills appears set. At the three interior positions but. Certainly worth a look dumb I mean his issues have been staying healthy quite frankly unions and been able to do that and consistent basis in Green Bay but an interesting guy and a guy that that might be on the radar and another week ahead. I look at the office tackle position if you don't bring somebody in. Through free agency do you look at your own guys I think I like Ryan Roy who. We know can play every position on the efforts of mine plug him in on the right side. And now you had to pay top dollar in knowing you've kind you haven't necessarily solidify maybe you have solidify that maybe he can play that position. I think that's something that they would. Look at as well if they don't bring in one of these guys because one of these guys asking for too much money you can plug Korean and he can play right. That we hear from a Conte Kenny Britt at wide receiver but he might not be cheaper than what you're right you're right based on the reports were seen in. You know Robert Woods is down the list he's what and many lists he's about the ninth or tenth highest rated receiver available in free agency and you're talking about. What a much was that 1011 million we have facilities wide receivers Robert Woods to go from where he was too even eight million which is what this podtrac. I'm guessing as to him Kenny Britt is looked at is number one or number two right we've seen Kenny stills he talked about a twelve million a year. Can you Brazil won something twelve million a year or north of that bill because he is a legit one or two reasons number one and number two receiver Robert won't be far behind that he won't be far behind that he doesn't the market that these guys are getting paid now. You know when asked if you remember when Stevie Johnson. Was signed hit a buffalo he was making seven have million dollars a year and it was like you know Stevie disparate he just broke the bank. But now the market is way higher than that because obviously that was back in 2011 or something like that. So now these guys are expecting twelve to fifteen million dollars a year as the number one receiver. Stevie news today we're gonna talk about that while we return we're gonna talk about Lorenzo Alexander look we're trying to get your thoughts on the up. The dream free agents the guys and other teams that might look good in the buffalo uniform but. What about their own well Lorenzo Alexander has some thoughts on his future we'll talk about that. When we return John Murphy and Donald Jones it is John Murphy show we are presented by NAPA Auto Parts. We're live at one bills drive and this is Buffalo Bills reached. John Murphy she. Back show John Murphy Donald Jones them the first day of the shooting negotiation period for. On restricted free agents in the National Football League we're talking about. Some of the guys who builds them might wanna look at some of the guys bills fans might want to look at. Tom what we didn't really dive into too many of the bill's own and we no other what 22. Of their own unrestricted free agency a couple of priority ones. Here's a tweet from its Torino Lorenzo Alexander should be the top free agent market leadership in the best shape of his life. World ignorant to Alexander financier Donald enough he actually did an interview with the Michael Silver at a bill dot com. Any kind of talked about what he is looking for entry teams pretty interesting stuff from from so. I mean when you when you hear the quotes and he says. Listen I'm obviously Lorenzo is a veteran in this we. You he's basically saying you don't need to take me to dinner if you don't need to like wine and dine you need to show me a world to Silva money basically. That's like the them the movie pass over the money baby at a and and and that's all he. He's saying that a lot of people. Have doubted him over the years a lot of people in thinking get it done people don't believe that he weighed 315 pounds he's done a lot. To get to where he has right now he doesn't need to be wined and dined. He just wants to be paid. Lorenzo talked with Mike silver of Anna felt that common it's an interesting quote. Com we'll read to you Pete this Lorenzo Alexander talk and people say I'm a one hit wonder but I've never done those things before this past season. It's a first time I've been asked to do that he said. So now I get do hit the open market and look you need to wine and dine me the contract you offers gonna show me how much he loved me I don't need to go to dinner. I'm ready to tour I don't need to see the city to show me the offer shall we the money like seven months at this stage in his career that makes some sense from Arizona senator. He's like let's I don't need all the rest of the stuff a you don't have to show me any of that stuff I'm fine with. Dinner and all that's. To show me the money to show me what it is it's are often mean if you love me if you want me to play for your team. You'll pay me the right way. And teams that don't do that. And they won't be able to book to get them. Is Lorenzo. Was he a one hit wonder I mean was that like and how wire season for him last year I don't know I ask you this question about that I don't know the answer to this question I. Idol idol like the guy a lot I love his approach last year I love the leadership he demonstrated. He'd set all the right things we'd get him in here every every Friday in and I was always amazed at his approach to each game and and in the way he worked to get himself ready to play at age 33. But Kenny Kenny duplicate his numbers can he duplicate their production. You know that the thing is all players. Are gonna say things like this because in this you have confidence the plan this week you know him and so he's probably always felt like I can do this. You don't know if you can do until you do it now that he's done it. I would think that he knows I can do this again but the fact of the matter is he doesn't know because he's never been asked to do it twice like he said I've never been asked to do this before. Not gonna be asked to do it two years in a row at this aids can you get that done I'm sure he's working he's working hard every single day. That's something that you just don't know and so teams when they look at him. They're gonna take that into account we don't know if you can do this again right now technically yes you are one year like 001. Pit one when you're wonders one year one we don't know. We're wondering if you can do that the second year there so do we pay top dollar not knowing if you can do this two years in a row because will regret it I would think something is gonna pay him. But that's going to be the question that they have in their own minds and I would think Lorenzo truthfully. Doesn't know if he can do it again because he's never had to do to use and he played a lot of please. You know like he played a lot of plan Desiree teams dead zone a lot you know also can you do that two years or less tough. At somebody is likely to throw some money out of I don't know how much it's going to be I think he's one of the more intriguing. Names on the free agent market not just from buffalo book for anybody who. You don't you know what you're getting kind of a gas although you don't know if he can do with that would be the question he need that again. Yeah orchid and Indians and I think from the bills' perspective. They were probably look at it like we'd love to have you back we love you leadership we we'd like our yard in the locker room. We love the way to carry your body work hard but if we signed to back it's gonna be first special teams primarily don't think so situationally I don't really see how it and it. And defense I guess he could fit in cancerous type guy but that would be he would be a special teams guy and he rotated meant to be in the new position in the past rest specialists and I just think it through this and of the top my head and if by the bills think it like that. There's definitely. A limit on how much you wanna invest in a guy like that right and and as good as everybody loves you. No tolerance I TS to know that himself you know yes we know how teams look it am you added you know deep down inside. In I feel like I can do this I know I can do this undock and do this but you also have to be realistic. And say what are the team's going to see about what are they gonna think about me. And that's where they're gonna pay me what the team's value you adds. That's that's when it comes down right in the today as a matter with it doesn't matter what you thing right it matters with the teams they rightly so he knows that you know and so he has to understand that if teams don't. Offered him ten million dollars a year. Is because this is what they feel he has to do except that at this stage it is this. Agents Koreans this sounds. Art we're gonna break we gutsy casters and abided join us in the next hour we hope to hear from Mike he'll mostly humans got his.
