He's shall comply GO. I'll tell us field sound government CEOs. Go bungee don't sound a couple of CEO's. Feel GO. I'll go posse don't sound good I feel on WGR. Yeah yeah. Yeah. And the and a receiver or as we got other guys on the roster of who we feel very confident about adding that day. But that doesn't mean at least not here to get to continue to work reasonable political relaxation and just tackling. I can't do it ever got to continue to work. And explore every opportunity to improve this football team. John McDermott bills head coach he uses quote unquote relaxation syndrome which I'm glad he put in quotes because I've never heard those two words put together before. We're not gonna get a relaxation syndrome all right. Good that's I guess that's bad Jeremy what was suck pot Joe's in studio here till like 830. Yeah 830 I have to run to an appointment so I Al I'll be here till then they aren't that we'll do it to two more hours tomorrow I think people forget free agency didn't end yesterday it did start you know it is it's dire as it starts today at 4 o'clock the question on everyone's minds now is can the bills talk to another fullback. I I'd there's got to be a few out there. You can make some calls you know who we call in to our we Colin the government and all fullback offense you know that's that's pretty cool you know you know me I'm I'm all about and just run twenty maybe I'll I'll love football. Short yardage situations that are right. So you've got a story up on our website WGR 550 dot com about the particulars of the Tyrod Taylor contract now I'd also got some information on this last night number one that. And when they hadn't yet seen how the restructuring works it's it's kind of like this. But let's tell the story of it right. It appears that Taylor would have gone or is agent to the come bind to the league take to gauge interest. And it lost to become pretty clear that no team was going to sign him to anything like the option that the bills had that in which is. Two years 27 million but 27 million guaranteed right away. Like an almost. Reminded me sellable poison pill on a contract. No one's gonna do that no one's gonna sign up 27 million for one year it's 27 million for two but it's also points a million for one basically no one's gonna sign up for that. So once they find out no one's gonna sign up of that becomes you know inserted few teams here Brown's niners jets whoever. I Tyrod well we don't we be prepared offer 151718. Whatever that number might be. And he comes back to the bills with what the market is gonna offer and says let's talk about restructuring. In large part sell because I believe that Taylor believes. He can win here he can play well they can make the playoffs. If you're Tyrod Taylor you probably leave the best chance you have not only to be a starter but to stay a starter is here. And Heidi keep getting paid and how do you keep playing and by being successful and being with the team that you're with before so. How did the bills get him to take a lower guarantee and less money and lower the cap hit and everything that they were able to do when the contract well. The market didn't offer anything better and this is the best situation for him. So the thing I'm happy about salary I wanna get your thought on the specifically I was afraid it would appear to be desperate for him. And I don't think that's what happened I think they were prepared to walk away. And because of that and the market he returns on a deal that is much friendly for the bills I agree I. I think everything you laid out is is is right on the way it happened from his side how often the bill's side secure from there I think what happened here was as I've I've said all along which is. I think Doug Whaley would have preferred to move on if the number was what it was was that he was about to pay Tyrod Taylor that contract. Dudley Europe sorry I always do that has the best muffler Sean McDermott. Would probably be more you'll at least willing. To have tire that number because you don't have to worry about the salary cap as much but he still want to build a team a certain way he also realize I can't do that. If I'm paying him. This money on the cap when there's other pieces I need to get it's not overly. And. You know crippling as far as a salary cap what he was scheduled to make but there are things that I need to do so even Sean McDermott. Wanted to get that number down. As much as possible and they were willing to walk away if that was not the case at the end of the day. I think one of the things that happen here from what I understand. Hey Sean McDermott and his staff were very on point with their messaging to Tyrod Taylor which is basically read into that which is luck. We like you. But don't. But don't be fooled that we're not gonna move on from you and we don't have to we want you to be here but if you wanna be here and if you wanna win at any view we're gonna try to win. And we're gonna get pieces around you and you wanna be a leader in the quarterback this team you have a spot on this team you can do that. If not and you're in you're just wanna go out there and get the most money go ahead and do it got into it you can do that. But we're not about to do that here today and brag about do that this year on the trying to build a football team I want you I need you a part of it I want you to be a part of it. Okay Tyrod Taylor surveys a situation he sees what you say what you said he's not to get the kind of money. He thinks he's going to out there he might still be able to get more than what he's getting it from the bills but this was ultimately all things considered financially. Team organization where he is. Where he wanted to be this is the best bet that's why it was agreed upon and I'll tell I I'm I'm stunned that his agent. Would agree to something like that but I think it does dictate where they feel the market was probably settling for him once they got some feelers out there at the com. No my biggest fear about Taylor about the bills. Is you know what what's woman number one calls we get to the station. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result that's like a top five power ranking call to this this show the station. People love to make that point and it's not necessarily wrong. The difference I think between Taylor two years ago and Taylor now. Is. Now that the bills have abandoned the idea that he could be their franchise guy when he got here it was may be. Then after you want it trended towards hate. Really may be and now after two years I think it's more about probably not. Right yeah he's probably not that guy and once he was that as an organization identify that you could. Daunting goal or you could say he gets to stay and were gonna walk. And like that is the middle ground. And I can't really definitively tell you that is a worse idea then going to the dead bottomed because as we pointed out like. You might want Sam Arnold I do too and the jets are probably going for it and I'm a little jealous of them. But there is no guarantee that they get him there is no guarantee that he comes out and beat that's that's a tough way to go it might be the better way to go. But is not guaranteed and I'm in I'm trying to do things that I the best I can. For guarantees the best things for you know the probability of of wins. Just keep looking at that means drafting pat Holmes in the second round like okay. Right if that and he said yesterday at a conference call this is not preclude them pretty quarterback I wouldn't expect him to say otherwise actually believe it though I don't I think that they would. Draft a quarterback and they really like one now personally I wouldn't draft with a tenth pick now knowing your tied Tyrod essentially for two years I think at that spot that's a receiver. Until well I think it's an elite playmakers somewhere I got so you don't waste it I would say quote quote waste it on a a backup quarterback for two years when you could still by the way Tyrod Taylor could wind up. May be actually beating the guy I don't know I don't necessarily expect that. But he cut and that what happened with that ten pick which tenth pick where you could've got an elite playmaker on one side of the ball the other I think that's why you used that pick for that get to the second round. Maybe maybe there's a guy they like maybe character is the bridge quarterback to that guy. Maybe they still like Yelp Accardo Jones at governor of another year of development tribe put him in that spot I don't think that's the case. Not really sure we know where they wanna go tobacco spotter how they treat it. But we know that they're gonna have to our tour here at least for one year I would say at least for two. And from there absolutely anything can happen he could be the bridge he can also be the guy that ultimately winds up winning the quarterback job. Being the guy. And seeing through more of that contract maybe two years down the road to talk about another renegotiation. Because he's played better than expected and he wants more money I don't know how all that's gonna play out I think we learned a lesson here though Jeremy we learn a lesson. A couple of different lessons from the media standpoint first of all. All the people reporting that they knew what was going to happen this was the last thing that anybody ever said was gonna happen because no one said. That this was gonna happen he was gonna take less might come back to buffalo all right so. Obviously no one actually knew that they did a great job are closed doors on both sides. I think it's the the other lesson we learned I just lost my train of thought we lock we learn lessons here is what I was gonna say about Tyrod Taylor and the Buffalo Bills but I'll think about a second. On talked about denizens off and yes why they're bringing in all the fullbacks what it's all that stuff 8030550. Join us on the phone lines in a 30551808550. 2550. Dale good morning daily Iran not WGR. The more guys I just I'm I'm here a lot of flopped again I think early years overreaction or. Pull back saying. Everybody who ought not to work or actually trying to the last twelve teams and what is global employed full back. Problem. One of those teams that didn't want the patriots. The other Q what is. Pay banks are here to global Broncos. Do think it's 1982 thinking to have good pull back the best teams in NFL apple. Are when it comes to build. I think. When it comes distract. At the tenth spot you have to take the best player available. Or you have to trade out and get more pick. I'm taking a receiver maybe even older power. Best defensive player available are all options. But. We look at our quarterback. I think Chet Kelly you'll tractor target mole off or picked off or front pec. Up its round pick for player even ticket chance sonic quarterback. When we're probably not gonna draft were the first round. At the same time Avant Argo gold and what did I disagree are which you witnessed. Just say territory it's your I don't agree I don't create adverse. Many players and kind of held it to your starting. Don't have the potential to get any better soul. Between Tyrod part failed to older and taking a chip that checked tallied a three quarterbacks that you bought time to figure out by. You can't take in the now you have to build a good football team. On this subject continuous over time. You met leaders when they become a good football team and you're not gonna build that to create. You build through the draft and you build a quarterback I mean in reality I think you do you can go from really bad to really good instantly when you get a quarterback when the colts did that they went from. To a fourteen to eleven and five. And sometimes takes two years to do at the raiders went from 338 Nate to last year they should have first from my dear cart doesn't get hurt less and. Just again appalled that some parts and their of course and a divorcing because you have four years to dig to get guys in the and it's taking that long those guys to walk away yet. Right it and I think the browns are learning that today. Because the browns had a lot of money. And guys are seen wanna go there right there and and what's so they're not they're not on the planet they thought they would be. Now agreed they could be really Vatican its internal I don't know immediate changes things again. But Tony Jefferson and apparently left a lot of money on the table to not join the Cleveland Browns their plan was we're gonna be really really bad in 2016. And we have all this cap room to spend it all he strap mixed we're gonna start building our team. While what good is it of people don't give you can't build your team because people don't want to go there because they think your bad team. And I think it sets you back in the rebuild as a go all the way you. Want it to the good builder in the same spot people who. Free agents or wanna or quarterbacks are Brenda Marshall would wanna come here he wants to go well he might be specific to New York writes and you and it's but. You know are you getting announced on Jeffrey even if you the money. Probably not in his wanna come here you a lot of these team players are gonna wanna go where they can win. And with Cleveland I don't know where they're starting quarterback is it it's got to be the number one question for any free agent it's going anywhere. But who's on this team right if I'm not a receiver. I'm I wanna wait until Tony Romo wins before I decide if I'm gonna sign with the Broncos you know it got Simien and lynch Ximian had a decent season last year but if Tony Romo goes and I'm a free receiver like. Torrey Smith or maybe he's a bad example like all that's gonna factories so I wouldn't write off the browns just Chip Beck I just might really like Baltimore back out there and navy maybe he maybe you like the original browns and he thinks I'm gonna play with the original brown that could be an up this imposter. Expansion browns and you know I'm the point about their office let's hit. I'm not freaking out that they signed off fullback. They have a lot of money committed to the thing that they do best and this is if you wanna be concerned about it this this is right where you are. Signing Tyrod for less in guaranteeing him less and having a ten million dollar cap itself makes total sense to me and here's why. If I'm gonna be the number one run team in league. I definitely do not need to have a lot of money committed to quarterback like that was the whole point of this every time. Brian lawyers name would come up or Trevor civilians name would come up I would say I'll take those guys. I think I can get comparable play from now and maybe better for cheaper than 27 million dollars guaranteed for Tyrod Taylor. And what do the bills do they restructured a two game fifteen million guaranteed like okay. You you have essentially cut the number in half. So now I'm not quite as motivated to say. Bring in a guy that I think is equal. And yes I do think lawyer and I do think Ximian could be entirely equal and maybe better and maybe worse in this offense but the fact that they got to guarantee money down. That takes that I out of the of this for that to happen. It just it drops quite a bit I'm not as agitated about it why would I spend. It's another point about full back should I sign L Shawn Jeffrey so I can have Watkins and Jeffrey and play. And Taylor all that money in my passing game and never pass that. But it doesn't make sense while I. I Tyler I. I. Remembered the thing that I said we learn a lesson on. The second thing we learned a lesson on here and we should always know this and always remember this I know that. A lot of do you understand this no this. The salary cap can always be maneuvered. There are always ways to try and find money now it might not be the way you want to all the time it might not be. Yeah we this guy might be this guy won't restructure we got to cut him lever that is it might be a different form. Maybe Tyrod Taylor says sorry about taking a pay cut to they move on to they upped salts and create salary cap space or maybe two or three guys restructure. And yet cut a few other guys. Going into this week Jeremy the bills had eighteen million dollars available salary cap space okay. Now today we sit here right. They signed some players whether you like the guys aside or not they went out and signed some players are there going to sign some players in they've restructured their starting quarterback's deal. And they still have about ten million more in salary cap space and what they have had maybe eight million more. There's always a way to try and maneuver and figure it out. And I never get caught up in. Oh my god I have no salary cap space oh my gosh during cap hell I know it does precluding some Tyson doing some things you are pushing some money it does hurt in certain certain ways. Salary cap is always moving around there's. Things to get added to it is mighty mad add to it every year there's guys you can cut there's guys you can restructure the bills here had. A huge huge swing and how much money was available between Monday and Wednesday of this week. Let me ask you this. Had they known they could do this is there any chance that they franchise Stephon Gilmore. I still don't think so I really they pay the value at him yacht that they did that they but if they're trying to dwelling that to go a lot this says. We're trying to break distraught we're trying to win now. We bring back Kyle Williams you know of course for gonna chemical whether they've Bob put the restricted offer for Mike Gillis Lee and they might pay him more if they negotiate something else. They're signing create a they're trying to break the drought in if they had known they they keep it can Tyrod Taylor's capped it down about six million that's what. Almost half of Gilmore salary already had a one year deal. And you could say let's go for much too again we'll bring to Fung Gilmore backe journal one corner. And right now. I'm instead left with a Sean McDermott defense with a number one core is Ronald Barbie in if you wanna see Gilmore did a great year that's fine Darby and a much worse year. Been Gilmore did he get overall he did he get as the number two and now he's got to step into the number one in the don't we've seen him be good before but I. And maybe I mean maybe they do I know they they they did not value him as a top five corner in the league and that's what he wanted to I think the bills generally try to. Where they value of the guys where they're gonna try to stick you know it's their own guy right I mean I mean I know we seen guys that got paid over the years but. That's generally what they're gonna try do so maybe maybe there are I think they they may have done it. Simply for the fact to buy time for a long term deal that that's probably why they would have done. I would think that or again you might not value top five he's justified by saying like. Open top five for one year you know old will do this for one year then again. Maybe that he's just not the type of court that they want. Britain's been saying any updates to Gilmore. Will look to be headed to Chicago maybe that has hit a snag we'll see mark he's good wind is gonna go to the 49ers nothing for Robert Woods yet and lawyers are getting some interest from the rams. Anything on woods you know you've been talking about the value how much money he could get we're seeing a few receiver signed. Had has in your opinion as the market changed the thinking woods is still like an eight million dollar got. I do because Kenny stills got eight million woods is similar age I was staying in my eyes still has 24. Wedges 25. They both have similar for what woods actually is the better production. Overall it stills but still has more big play ability more touchdowns things like that so you can kind of massage at anyway you want so I think that we're child protective about the same type a deal. For Robert Woods here. When you look at it now I have not heard anything on him which is very interesting we'll see where he winds up going. The chargers I believe has an interest in him from what I've heard. Remember it that he lit obviously is there are so. He would be familiar with him I've always suspected robber would wanna go play on the West Coast he's a USC guy he grew up in California. Let's say the he would just say I'm not you'll come back to the bills and he likes it here but I've always suspected he would try to fight to Souter on the West Coast because it. So yes to decide between I mean LA you've got Philip Rivers in the charge rice would play for Anthony Lynn. Right likes him. Anybody that does that coach if that's the case. You go to the rams who they have to they have both Kenny Britt and Brian quick or free agents so long you know you go there with a young quarterback gonna be wants to do that again. You know being go to eat out these gonna go to Kyle Shanahan they're party they are even gone out there and what they do they're used to Shawn Jackson and mark he's good when it looks like. Niners didn't Shawn Jackson now. And as I believe that's the case. Our free agency continues 8030550. Tyrod will be back the bills pursuing other free agents stay up today of course throughout at a website W jar by Putin are common here. On the air with us as well woman get back the bill say goodbye to a player who will. I I I say this. He'll be forgotten. But we should spend a minute remembering. That this guy name one name a trophy after him. Perseverance trophy something. And it's like a look at the box I guess are also and I'm really and they are they actually. Their favorite turnout has signed a shot I didn't see his name Soledad the niners last night but I don't think that's been nothing to finalize on him. Look at look at back at work creating a perseverance trophy for this former Buffalo Bill that does deserve to be remembered. Buffalo from its 43 annual to snap stepped up that the couple times looking downfield for easily breaks up. I. He didn't do all the markets lately 57 yard touchdown but and a bill the light that did it now. Mark is easily released by the bills. Your headlines here for. 7:30 this morning Tyrod Taylor brought back the bills on a restructured contract only fifteen million puppet and a half is guaranteed for. Tyrod Taylor bills also with some fullback news signing Mike Tolbert and Patrick DiMarco. Guard flop blatt electric garden named Vlad that's a definite positive step. Glad to costs. Costs it costs a lot of today. I mean the guy named Vlad on the team that is a big time operate Stephen how Scott appears to be the bill's new kicker will bring him in. I'd some stats on how Scott last season the Seahawks were middle pack in touchback percentage they were fifth in field goal percentage hoster was very Ackerman field goals and he struggled extra points big time news worked in Dan Carpenter an extra points was last year. So yeah I know and that's but you know. It's actually it's the second it would be the second kicker to release Seattle for buffalo via free agency vs Ryan Lindell that was that the transition tag right at quick yes that the Eagles attacked her I think it was some sort of I was physically and be ready plan B is gone by the but he came over at some weird deal their own thing and dom. You know one of the things is. In Seattle's not easy to kick with the weather sometimes I mean it's it's a win diesel rainy sunny you come to buffalo mean that's kind of guy you want that you can make sure. As well that you he can kick your. But some I do you wanna correct myself thank you very much in Giroux who tweeted me and said it's Dick Jared are sought with a forty natural going under not chuck Dixon I apologize thank you. That was it that's the other receiver that the point was on Robert Woods though that we don't know where is Laney spot might be and we have not hurt anything on him. I'm still expecting him to get a Kenny stills type of deal which is about eight million dollars maybe the markets can be a little lower for him now that if you guys signed. We'll see where that goes let. We haven't heard anything I'm bills with receivers in Germany we've heard anything in the bills. Have you heard anything about one defensive player. No I have no not one defensive player what I think is fascinating right now because I have no idea what they're gonna do it linebacker. Although I will say Zack Brown's leaving we had to sort of heard I mean I mean when I say not one defensive player I mean outside of their own guys because I will tell you. They are still in discussions with Lorenzo Alexander. They're gonna let him test the market it appears to see where is his numbers aren't what he can get. And then they've had productive conversations. And then they'll go from there they have not from my understanding what I can tell you they have not submitted an offer to Lorenzo Alexander is represented as. With a hard number on it at but they have had good discussions as far as wanting him back in May be seeing where things go before he actually signs somewhere else. 8030550. Other news Tony Romo will be released the lions signed Ricky Wagner will be the highest paid right tackle in football you know Ricky Wagner we all are here at Wagner. Hoyer to the 49ers Goodwin of the 49ers are mentioned as well those are sports headlines here on WGR unmarked as easily really quickly. Just spend five minutes a Marcus Easley Wikipedia page and all the stuff he's gone through he was drafted in 2010. The bills draft him in the fourth round he misses his rookie season with a torn meniscus. In 2011 he has a heart ailment misses a second straight season in 2012. He is released and sign the practice squad signed to the 53 man roster in November makes is NFL debut December of two when he twelfth but the two years after three draft he makes his NFL debut. Return to kick off yadda yadda gets hurt again. Later in his career he just did so much to sell to try to stay in the league and it's amazing how long he stayed in the league. Tonight he'll be forgotten but he's I think it's is that he's a good story he was uninteresting guy. And when he got released I just dollar. You know best of luck to Manny YouTube that's the guy. Who battled in the league to stay in the league and hilly forgotten and I get it you know it's about production but. You know you would have known better just. And exited I don't. Actually actually got to know Marcus a little bit. Last year even when he was hurt you know he's but he was in the locker room a lot and I chat a lot about his rehab really good guy. I think Marcus has a future may be coaching if he wants to down the road armies are really Smart guy. Very well respected gets the business side of things as well I think he always knew this was the case. A possibility at least. But I can tell you as early as even last month he was working his tail off to try and become. Who of Buffalo Bill again back. Now while best of luck to go yet or are industrial 550 wanna join us Tyrod returns the bills I I'd. Here's the thing I've got on itself I'm I'm OK because they're not paying him a lot I would have prefer to. Brian Hoyer ten million to Tyrod at 27 guaranteed in sixteen. As a captain I would have preferred Trevor simian in a trade to picking up the option for Tyrod Taylor. Bringing Taylor back the way that they did to me. I think she's kind of calms people down a little bit it looks to me it's the kind of deal you sign. For an unproven guy who is the middle of the road who you hope to get good play out of who you'll also plan to replace when you find his replacement like he is paid like someone that is a place holder now he's not guaranteed. Oh he's paid like. Totally like a backup yes I mean that's what he is debate like. Or oral calls a low level starter he's guaranteed a level of money of lol lol yes harder and like the the the financials of it. Tell everybody. We're open to cornerback. Beat that to mean is a very important thing I don't want the bills to be acting like Taylor is their answer. And I don't think they act like he's our answer he'd he'd they signed a guy they felt was good for them at this time. The next part of this the bigger organizational question. Doug Whaley did not appear yesterday if he did not speak he did not release a statement. John McDermott speaks for Doug Whaley now way. They they are going one voice that or one voice. Now I don't know how standard that is around the NFL you know in thanking everyone McDermott thanked everyone up and down. Doug Whaley I did I mention this like this GM in name only. Does Whaley make this decision. Does Wei Li make relief any decision you know all he he almost seems like he is. In a lot of organizations in general manager runs the show. In this case he just seems like the guy that tells them about the options. You know he leads the coaching search but doesn't decide on the coach. Hill amass all the data for the draft and I and you know the draft is probably his day yeah I think that's but wouldn't the credit score for instance when when Rex is here their first pick is a defensive player. And then last year their first three picks are defensive players like he's building. To help Rex. Rex is gone now. Doug Whaley does he take the best player on the board or does he look to Sean McDermott and sail like. What Houdini you need me to replace Gilmore I'll get to the best scorer that I can get a Big Dig it doesn't appear to me that Whaley really drives anything with this organization. But that that's never really been the case. Since he's been the GM it's not like it's new and in let's go back to things I've senate here before out work let's say the end of the year. At the end of the year. Now I know it's a little bit of a different situation because as a new coach this year so. At the end of the year when he had dug her own as a head coach at the end of the year we had Rex Ryan is head coach. Basically what doesn't really does and what he did was he would go he would say tell me what you need to heading into the next year. And after they'd compile the data they look at their fellow east for example Doug morrow says do I gotta have a middle linebacker. He says we'll leave the seat here's all the draft guys are off reading guys let me see where I get the best one of the best value he signs Brandon Spikes apparent. They bring in Greg romantic and Rex Ryan's here in new coaching staff. I really really need the best tight and you can get me. Okay let me up point there's no real details here's a list man look at Charles Kleiza guy are you sure it's gonna cost a lot okay. I'll do my best get Charles clay he's always been that guy to do that Doug Whaley has always been the shopper. Flash do you tell him it's like when I go to the grocery store my wife gives me a list and says I need this this this this mess. And I got to go and I got to find shopping port now grant it she probably knows the better items to get this are the value. But that's up to me a look at say oh this is what we usually get this the value item that's laugh about it. So that's his role in it pretty much always has that so. He's he he is in conjunction obviously when everything going on there. But it's never been it's never been the case where he basically Diana makes all the decisions he lets those people. Organ our coach the team essentially. Tell him what he needs and then he has to go out he goes out he tries to find it that's pretty much been the role that's what he's except that that's what he wants. And that's where we got here today is I do believe that it was Sean McDermott establish that yes. If you give me Tyrod Taylor restructured deal I want Tyrod Taylor a restructured deal. So don't really gives his marching orders to do more or essentially try to make that happen and that's how they get to where we are and they don't. Get this restructured deal unless they were willing to walk away from him I agree completely. Completely which I think if you even if you weren't a not a fan of Tyrod or the move. I think you do have to respect that the date they didn't blink that they played the game and they were willing to walk away from him I must and to me that's big. And an as far as the draft I would say that is the one area where yes you're right Doug and his staff are more like hey big this year round. You know Sean McDermott is an out there scouting Doug Willie staff and others got a date yet they have the rankings of the guys so if if Sean McDermott says totally need safety. Now it's up to Willie say here's the good and bad Jamal atoms here's the good and bad Emily Coker. Okay where we can and they talk about it in he has those guys up there than they and they come to some sort agreement or he says this is the best that are Sean says that's a guy I want. Mark a New Jersey the morning mark your and a VCR. There are very very good return on the yeah it's now obviously apparent postmortem to return to a parent they don't obviously pick the quarterback and even the receivers are sketchy. So we know Jeremy have always been if you're pretty equal pay you scratch you go coal project. Provided you beat. Don't get one of the two guys you mention the two seat these so I think those would be the cream of the crop of what they would eat and walk. And may be bought back lost even what it's like if you little hospital visit but I don't think it'll bother status. I would walk the tight end and Alabama. And I know that sounds weird given clay but its contract. I want the guy who create mismatches attached move around exceed the weight can use these guys number built have never had a guy like that. There was a report yesterday that the bills were one of several teams interest at a Martellus Bennett I find that fascinating. I'm not saying they are gonna get out but I know that that came out from one of the national guys he's gonna want big money. Can you would think so all right he's gonna get big money I would think I don't know but there was a report that they were on that now what does that tell you though maybe they're thinking along those lines. Big game hunting for mismatches. That's how we want to build this team that's what we wanted to you. Tyrod Taylor if you just took. The average per year everyone's deal and it slot at this year's salary cap for him. I don't know that I wanna do it. And he gets spared at least judge in this range he would have the 26 highest salary dump on us RD of any of any quarterback with a starting or not. And that includes by the way Mike London getting fourteen and a half a year. Apparently. Quick text doesn't matter about the money or anything else is still ruins the idea of a good quarterback in the draft either this year or next year this all feels like more of the same well. That depends how good you think Tyrod Taylor's gonna be with the bills next year. I don't think they're gonna win more than seven games like I think they can easily I think the keys and a final laden with Taylor or with anybody for that matter emailed carnal Jones but. The scheduled to me looks. Terrible the question is can Taylor play well enough to be brought back or with a bill strapped quarterback this year or next I I guess I wanna say. Before you freaked out about them not taking a quarterback this year won it we let them not take a quarterback horse or tell us. We're not gonna take a quarterback if they take one and if you spend the next month and a half. Crying that they're not gonna take a quarterback in this means an architect on and then they do. Well. You know out agency reminds me yesterday and actually it's only about this. This is the time a year where you hear about one guy they're gonna sign and everyone. I'm sorry. Many people get really upset. That actually the only guy there ever gonna shine brightly at free agency has even started yet signed a couple fullbacks and I wanna see receivers but our but maybe that happens today we don't know a thing exist he hasn't even started yet. That's not over yet creations is not over yet 8030551808550. To 550. IC the up Markey mentioned you don't go big I think you're the kind of receiver you draft should depend on your quarterback like what kind of receiver should the bill's not have. The kind that is all about yards after catch one catching the ball. Laterally in a West Coast offense because he hits windows catches on the run and makes guys miss tyra tellers and final routes at least not yet. Right like what is Tyrod Taylor do he throws it deep. He throws it to receivers that are already open. And I might want a guy they can go to on the field and when a jump ball like I want that with Mike Evans when the bills drafted Sammy Watkins Sandy's pretty good that do. Mike Evans is a freak at that you've got a lot of receivers to do that really well. Does Mike Williams ought to climbs and knew that I would say yes he's got and his game so if the bill strapped Mike Williams there's another part of the cell when you draft a player. You do in this is you always say draft best player available because your needs change in a year. And I think it's a great start to great point that you make so I dress challenge in months months abide dressed Mike Williams. You might have someone say oh great. The number one running team just draft another receiver they're not gonna throw the ball too well. Maybe in his rookie year of Mike Williams is on this team then Tyrod Taylor targets in sixty times and maybe next year. They draft a quarterback seventh overall and one of the things we say is hey he's got a good situation Sammy Mike Williams on the outside as a rookie quarterback you can do a lot works. You know like I agree so I. I and an M they're velocity. In the organization has primarily been that we're not gonna spend a ton of money I know. Wide receivers we have Sammy coming up we're gonna get guys to fill in. And that's pretty much what they do if you go getter but if you go get a premier guy Teddy got Mike Williams or Corey Davis who I love. Kenny really to play a very low salary yeah the pretty much compared since. Eliminating the rookie wage but it's putting in the rookie wage scale. The NFL has figured out that those entry level deals are great bargains you get you need great players impact players for cheap for five year four years pretty cheap in the fifty Arens of being expensive for first routers. Quick text why did Tyrod take this deal. Because. He wasn't gonna get much better on the open market. They would've had conversations. With other teams and it's as simple as this. He vets on himself here could he have made more money with Cleveland or the jets maybe. But if your Taylor and his agent you're not only thinking about one year you're trying to figure out where to live the best chance to. Make money this year make money next year make money the rafter. No where can I maximize. So while buffalo might offer you two million dollars less than somebody on the open market. Buffalo might be your best chance to see year to a deal. To see your three of a deal you know you believing yourself we think you're gonna start or you went 86 in your rookie year you know your defense wasn't good this year you've got a good running attack. The owner of the coach that you know they believe and you. I think you stay where where it's friendly. You take a good fair paycheck. And you stay were its friendly so Tyrod takes the deal because it's the best opportunity forum he didn't necessarily take a pay cut because he wanted to we took a pay cut. Because he kinda had to the market was gonna dictating was not gonna get 47 million dollar guarantee. And the bills are the best situation. Those is it's kind of simple as that again I Al always they would I said when I joined the show top of the hour. From what I understand I'm told her. Coach McDermott and his staff. Were very much on point with their messaging the Tyrod and I don't exactly know what those messages entailed but. From what I can gather it's pretty much look. We'd like you we want you what we are not afraid to move on from you if you don't want to make it work here the way we think we can make it work. And you know I mean you're essentially calling his bluff in that situation right here's a look maybe you wanna go out there and your goal is just to get paid as much money as possible. Go do it. Because we can find somebody. That we think we can pay and at a reasonable rate to do pretty much what you can do for us. But you wanna stay here you wanna be a part of what we're trying to build you wanna be apart of us know doing this together finish what you started. And do this take less money stay here and we're gonna commit tee and make you our guy because we want you and I I think Tyrod Taylor. Seems like at least that resonated with him. He's dead and that facility working out. He likes being here look at Sean McDermott's first day on the job the day he was introduced I should say as the bills head coach. Tyrod Taylor was there he talked about how. He basically they got he came he was there any talk to each other I think Tyrod from the get go one to make sure make it clear to everyone that building. He wanted to be a Buffalo Bill now wasn't going to be easy. Considering the money the contract. But it seemed to me the from the beginning he wanted to get clear I wanna make this work some way as well he might not say that publicly. Speaking of the facility. No more ping pong tables and pulled tight as at my table stakes all I saw all on tables and I think is that because Richie got veto and Aaron Williams lost ping pong. I didn't. Nick O'Leary is like no one on the list I think adding nick I think nick is the king apparent and Richie is lake. In Richard Eric Wood yeah pretty good I think I think rich he's number two but Richard tell you he's number one. You know he regulated listen meal punch me it's easy for saying that but now I think I think I think nick O'Leary's number one ping pong instead but they do love their ping pong like -- I have tournaments everybody loves ripping lightest full have to leave actually honestly honestly. I'd never once ever seen one of those players playing and pool table maybe that's argument that's right it might not be up for anything other things happening you don't we use is that nobody has under the. Whose story is like other gonna focus law mornings I actually don't know nobody loses and it's right in the middle locker room it's a new way of I wanna go go talk. From Mike Gillis lead Preston brown are a walk all around the pool tape now and it's a few extra steps I got a. To see this is this is good information I would give back the wireline call today which I believe is. Imagining the bills' offense if they just keep signing fullbacks that's up next here on every GR. You know really our system and has never been used on. And you know there's certainly some movement in that system as bait in. Tyrod can be at a decent thing that does not think it a good fit. And that felt strongly about that. Welcome to its audio cue ball. Soccer and football brokered through your report who all pull back off there.

Dot com or mention tailor we use pool walked onto. Curt Hughes brought Dexter aggregate he'll play in the slot drop. Put out why. There were fits into office or you won't won't. All of it. Q why you dig her well in the spring. Gulf Arab world slight jog through. You would walk from your old self and 200 open field walked out. Afterward you. All. Walked out I could go. Who they just resign. Cole spent yet as it they they get reset a great job L fullback offense. And at that that guy that politically I sound a little bit like you now and that was that was not now down windows stuff and not me that some of German brother Jeremy one of the other yep. All right I think industrial 5518085525. That was funny. Which fullback do you want next that is our topic today which. Which pulled like you want next. But you know they actually are they're get ago pulled back I mean I get it I understand why people are upset or at least thinking oh my god like what is this 1977 again. They did have people like on the roster last year whose free agent. Jerome Felton and now they're getting a guy who's pretty much to bearable as ours around blocker or better. The mark was considered maybe the best from blocker fullback in the league run blocking fullback he's one of them. Any younger and now they they did sign a pretty good player and then you bring in told her by the way let me start at Tolbert com. I don't believe Mike Tolbert is going to be like the traditional fullback he's packet to be lining up. Sharing snaps there with DiMarco I believe he's gonna be more of a goal line back it's not an H back poker. In a special teams guy I think that's it they're gonna bring you gonna load deal. It even makes the roster and guys like that I think he probably will but guys like that you know you go to training camp and you find out if you can find a spot for them on your team has valuable enough for you to use them. But I do not expect an act. Actually be using your two fullbacks in a wishbone offense I don't expect that. It's worth pointing out that Charles clay was part fullback in Miami he was he got some carries fullback tight end H back have yet yet know multiple guy and I. Still like Charles clay. But it's still the keys to Mike Tolbert had over a hundred rushing attempts three times this career like he's actually running and it's the wireline right here I've got a real quick one I saw the patriots are now interested in tight end Dwayne Allen. And I trade from him for the colts right yes and I saw an article that said why Dwayne Allen might be a fit with the patriots. And I would just like to say it's because of Tom Brady but that's thank you mr. clutch hey look another player looks like a good fit in their passing game. It's. How about this when having I gotta get this all all day yesterday. While the patriot is never over pay anyone that's right because they've Tom Brady they don't. Actually they do they sign Roosevelt Colvin to a big contract that didn't work out. They signed that mean they they prepare lots of people additions are lots of people but they look big you have Tom Brady you get people assigned to look as I wanna win. Natalie that. You don't have to overpay anybody because he makes up for deficiencies of the terror. Everything about them will vanish. As soon as he does it look also this has been more money on players right exactly trying to keep them better at safety because there and of of freaking human cheap Cody at quarterback you. You tell me that they can win whatever money gains would Jimmy drop low or they give Matt Cassel or whatever that's fine. When that guy becomes their permanent quarterback it's not Tom Brady you know they're gonna do keep gonna spend more money to it make sure other spots of the roster are better. 8030550. A couple of texts Tim says how would leave car while Gardiner out of the awful that job he must he he must've been like ready for the next yes or something. Completely full bikes can you name usually sees an addict yes right right exactly Carlo garner I was trying to think to some other fullbacks John coon got in there. Damon Shelton John Connor and John Connor he's another guy. William refrigerator Perry could have been announced and he played fullback for a very pleased court McEntire I could use corn MacIntyre. Are back on the other side eight of real 550 the Tyrod conversation. Where'd you draft a quarterback now let's hear from you. Tenth second round. Wait a year. Mills employee options talk about what the best idea is what it looks like they might he was well Tyrod Taylor is back for another season this is essentially your sports update Taylor back restructured contract. 151000015. And half roughly. Guaranteed to the cup the guaranteed money a lot. And that's good news for the bills why did Tyrod signed this deal because he can still make about thirty in two years he's not guaranteed it he just needs to start for two years which I'm sure he believes. Really could happen. 8030550. Sabres don't play tonight direct home on Saturday but visit Columbus Friday that's the next seventy games German whites of about Joseph the here and of each year.
