However after losing Robert Woods and mark he's good one wanting to have yet to address is wide receiver.

Later opens dole right ago totally dig that's not gonna get off on being one of the bureaus that yeah illegally Garrett. It's too cool for that was just right for us presently I am still a melt obviously goes back. That appeals to me good afternoon I'm the bulldogs up about Joseph is well alongside Mike does a day off today Selby here for the first couple of hours. Of today's show which is fine because we've got a hockey game to get. Cycled into eventually as well so. Would have been a Saber game day the sabres are in Columbus deploy the Blue Jackets tonight. We'll have rob ray not until five we pushed rob to five because sells here for these two hours. With his wife been out of town he's got other obligations onto it sells here for now and we're gonna just throw lines open. And get reaction I feel like sail solo just happened. In the last two days. Between these free agent signings and an hour and a handful these guys were talking today at the stadium you were there for that headlined by Micah Hyde who is there are. Flagship signing I'd say so far quite obviously or big signing off for the bills. And do we that we all that yesterday and you don't all this Cleveland stop it was going on yesterday kind of swallowed our show. And the net piloted by you and Mike really I was sort of officiating or stay out of the way. Talking about the merits of what we looser but of course the day before that we followed a Tyrod Taylor I feel like. Even though we've talked to you each of the last two days. It's all this kind of blown past me like I think. And so I'm glad you're here and I hope the audience wants to hear from you and if the dummy questions about where the bills are at now. You know a couple of days and to free agency in some polls already filled. You know lines are open and just triggered general bills wrap your 8030551888. 515. To 550 I know will get to Taylor. K eventually but. What stands out from what the bills have done here in the couple of days that the free agent market has been open. What stands out to me is. I believe the bills are trying to specifically target a certain type of player on offense. Any certain type of player in defense and it plan of action they have. Let's start on offense. I think they're trying to win bay. And what I mean by win big is when with bigger bodies but I don't mean necessarily in the running game. It appears here what they're trying to do Bulldog by bringing in. Eight fullback who can catch passes. Another running back slash fullback was a goal line back who also can be very personal and catch some passes and run the ball Mike Tolbert I was in the personal talk about a Samarco. And on top of that being rumored to be in on all these tight ends everywhere like Martellus Bennett Jared Cook who knows I don't know. Even hearing things about now you know maybe just. Connecting dots like I would like OJ Howard baby number ten with the beach than that and I think that they are really trying to. Take advantage of smaller defense is that we've seen around the league in the passing game because they're a good running game. And there are already more physical than most teams they played RD bigger than most teams they play in the running game up front. That's you know what they're going to do that's to be their bread and butter anyway and top of that. Help out your corner yet back along the way who by the way is only 61. And a yell he's not the biggest of guys and maybe part of the reason why he has trouble throwing certain areas of the field are he doesn't have those big bodied mismatches that he can kinda. Just put it there for that guy who can body up on somebody blocked about a tight end against a linebacker maybe that's it. I think is a clear plan by Sean McDermott and Rick Dennison. It's our coaching staff obviously Willie is the GM before you get to get those types a guy like let. I want it labeled a question I'm Natalie that I I get that. How all how much of an advantage in my getting. If I'm throwing the ball to a full back ago but I I understand a bigger body and a smaller but I mean mostly. I get the ball on the fly to pull back we wanna might look him for six yards eight yards and I. I'm not gonna make people miss I mean are you guys can hope he's gonna run people over because he's so big. But I don't know that that a plate and down the field as a whole different thing with OJ Howard Martellus Bennett even even Jared Cook. Down the seam. That that type of mismatched size wise I get back. I'm not sure that I'm dealing much by a play I don't know. Full it's a fair question I think what what the I think what ultimately trying to dean is what you don't have a beguiling Jerome Felton who what is he when he's on the field. He's one dimensional you know the block is coming no doubt it what you're trying to do. If you're using your fullback in the passing game is you're just trying to make defenders not understand keep them. I'm their heels so to speak you don't want defenders knowing OK when Jerome Felton steps here the ball's going there right he's blocking for LeSean McCoy all right a heave you have. DiMarco. Possibly blocking or possibly going out for a pass. Suddenly that pass rusher might not be able to go and NT NT off suddenly you have to worry about him go to plan I think that's when did you try to create. It's not necessarily the one I want this match it's the thinking of the defense of I can do some different things now with you you think with a highly better cook let's say they get him the touches about catching passes its. His capacity as they unblock what he would do you want you have to depend on that way so I think that that's what. They're trying to do. Offensively. I like to answer that yes. Because there were uncommon for a mostly is at any play. I would say this mostly of any team in the league that employs a full back at almost any play where. A team throws at the full back in the flat I feel like is a play where the better guys comfortable. Yeah like I understand that this guy DiMarco believe he's symbolic. Jones is over there are great but yeah it's all part of that just a piece of the puzzle. Right keep ideal I don't see any likens catching a bargaining it's hard right then that Patrick DiMarco there's no doubt there's a method to it you reached wanna have people respecting your breath you know here's the teams are going to just let that I'd be. Our long they're gonna have to cover. That's right even even if the guy you know catches the ball and doesn't generate a lot. You're making them respected and that draw somebody away from who who go to or Sammy Watkins are well. Or or or or pass rushing your quarterback you know just right right teed off in my and they keep him off balance I think it goes with a play action stuff too when you run play action. Yeah you're you're putting more parts in motion so to speak on offense so defensively. And I think this has always been known about Sean McDermott he loves athletic. Level two level three guys who likes guys who can do all different things who can move around specially athletic linebackers who can cover. He likes guys that he can do different things with the secondary because a play cover 30 play cover two of the plate in a man and it it appears here with a two signings they had with the two safeties. If I wanna call safeties that's the point. Micah Hyde in Jordan employer. They are guys that can play in different spots in the secondary. Bolt of these guys have played both corner and safety they're safety by trade I think. But even Micah Hyde thing I asked them today it's a stranger asked you what position you play what do you tell. Any immediately goes on the DV you can return punts so what's that you've been thinking about that he is again it all the time because that's what he is so I think the plan is on defense. To make sure you have. A whole bunch of guys who can match up no matter what the offense puts on the field. You're you if you're gonna give me four wise. That's fine because I have a safety who can go cover one of those guys. If your gonna go with a full backing you probably get a running it that's why is that safety and also come down and play a little bit more near the box I don't need to change our personnel. And that's I think what he wants out of that. And and Micah Hyde really. Is see it's a good and sneaky signing. But it's a it's a bigger money signing then maybe I even anticipated I mean I guess in today's NFL. If you're not giving somebody a double digits signing bonus. And you know I it and it annual average value of ten million dollars or more a year than I guess it's qualifies as a moderate. Low key signing but when I saw the numbers on the. Sky yesterday only impacts in that Aaron Williams it's exactly is that that what they're doing they're swapping your Williams contract. For Micah Hyde and we could argue and say airplanes is a better player that's fine by I I think he might be. But her Williams insert mean there's so many more questions about him that right. They had to move on from him and now you're you're at least getting a comparable replacement if not a younger battery place and I don't know that. That remains to be seen. Aaron it was also versatile he was a guy they could do givers her is like apple to corner and I try to draft in his corner of so so. If you want to look at it as Micah Hyde is really a very healthy younger Erin Williams. I'm fine with that up because Aaron was a good player and they really miss them that's right that's no doubt about it I think that's maybe what they tried eight we can't have. He we can't have her Williams the neck were just so are we just can't feel good about it. But man we love this kid in in what he brings. Golf I need I was like I'm in comes Micah Hyde me right. But I don't wanna overdo it make a solid footing the bill Stew Stewart signed Ronnie Lott has brought or something but this I think is. This what when I lead off the shows in a feel like all the stuff happened and I haven't really sunk in some teeth into it. Micah Hyde is what I'm really thinking about like that happened yesterday and I think it's a significant signing Mikey he should help this team. Yes might even wanna say might help this team a while yet can be interesting and you know. When you talk about like the copper bulls here's the difference though he can actually line up on good wide receivers are Williams. Was not a great corner when he played there early in his career and he got turnaround we all said his hips just aren't good enough he's coming up to save the almost out of and necessity correct me for his own good because he was not her helping them at corner. Totally different player with a side Hyde actually if if you into a game tomorrow. And mica high were your starting corner you're OK with that because that's what he can play if you went into the game tomorrow images starting safety are also okay what that's like I think there are some differences there so yes I. Those are the things they've done and see to be clear path here too. Building a bigger. Passing game and when I mean by bigger is up physically bigger passing game on offense. In building a more athletic versatile defense I think that's what the plan this. Now I've heard you have the brunt of those yesterday that her drew little bit this morning you're really walking around the clock you're you're only here for a couple of hours of time a year this morning. And talking about something McDermott alluded to yesterday when he met with the media following Tyrod Taylor's news conference. And that was. Their line backing core and how may be specifically a player like hi I aid. Molly. Supplement. What they have to do it linebacker think about think about teams in nickel personnel these days most teams play sixty to 70% nickel personnel. A case. Sometimes I forget some people don't. I know that we have a very educated audience so we don't know what that means we honestly nickel personnel just means five defensive backs on the field now for not traditional two quarters two safeties. Nicholas I've die mystics and Lyle record comes off that's correct limits in it yet and a lot of times that you Daimon a defensive lineman gonna cost sometimes. Do you Lima come off for nickel and you keep it more if you and athletic linebacker he could still do that but that's what we mean by that. So in today's NFL. Because so many offenses use so many spread offenses. These so many hybrid guys they throw the ball over the place most teams. They're starting defense is nickel the Torah we Coleman's pretty much a starting corner even though he doesn't actually. It listed as that because. He's not necessarily. You know though right of the left but he sent a feel pretty much all the time. Now. What you can do is I ask Sean McDermott. Do you need specific roles for your linebackers you want guys to fill everything he said or the number amount of nickel you play. Really I need to linebackers these days that I can play it would just two linebackers which I think is interesting because this whole time I thought they're gonna go out. And if the find somebody to play with brown and right. Maybe they Opel maybe maybe Mike hi is going to be on the field so much not as a linebacker but as a nickel DB who can actually tackle. That they don't need to go get another linebacker I still think they will. I know that they're still talking with Lorenzo Alexander I don't know what his exact role would be he'd still be a third down guy as far as -- not yet sometimes. He might start on first and second out against certain teams as CM linebacker. But I think what we're looking at here is may be. Let's walker he was and he used and Lawson on the edges Daria said Williams inside that your four behind them two linebackers brown and wrangling. And then you have Micah Hyde as that Tenet Wiener. Safety slash corner and then you got your corners could be seen mourned RB I guess and you know what a great there. Lawyers say Gingrich a safety I think that's that right now I'd put together the depth chart the tires starting defense looked. Sentencing were two days in here and Alexander has not found. Really anything out there yet I I wonder. His age. Coupled with. Kind of an out wire year down and even if you really dive deep which I would think the team signing him. Would really look at how did he get twelve and half sacks. And what was he was just beating people or. Are we talking about like three runs right I think there was a a fair share that no doubt. So. That could end up being beneficial for the bills that they if they still think he can fit for them somewhere. And maybe even in tandem in this role you're describing here first and second down and if I've got hide it. As like a third down quads I replacement for that. You know that. And that might that might be fit for naught I agree and you know Lorenzo. I get a lot of ever once say to me orders he fit well look again if you're looking for guys who can do different things this is a player I know he's 33 but it is career. He's played defense of lions played linebacker he's played inside he's played out that he's played offensive line and tight in his career. He's also versatile guy who also obviously help them a special teams on top of that he's not your typical 33 year old pulled out just like he's just destroyed an. Enrichment bowling ball in the studio apparently he's not your typical 33 year old is ours is eight either. Alexander is a guy that has not played a lot honestly. You know snap slice bright he does have as much mileage. He's plays a lot of special teams where does he fit. You can make him a third you can make him a CM linebacker doesn't mean he has to play every down a and then on third downs. You can take Kyle Williams off the field let's say or whoever and are you take Reggie rag mop the field and put him next issue Acker next to Jerry Hughes and mix things up and have a couple blitzes that's the thing but. You know me I'm gonna tell you I believe there are there is a lot of value also in what a guy like Lorenzo. Brings the locker room I think that's why Mike Tolbert was signed to. Guys to understand the culture that. Sean McDermott wants to implement their leaders their respected. Their people they can keep guys beat beat him it's on younger guys. And I know Lorenzen was seen like that. As far as the money is concerned I think the bills here were Smart to slow play it. Not go out overpay him because you're not gonna pay him like a pass rusher right he wants to get that kind of money. But they wait they weed them for the market to settle. He sees he doesn't he's not getting that kind of money from somewhere but he. Maybe he has a choice to take a little more somewhere else in the middle say that's fine you can do that or even come back here with a or offering UN I think that's what they're trying to. 8030551888550. To 550 those are the numbers against self populace here sitting in for Mike for the first two hours. Of the show. I'm the bold I didn't and pretty much against anything goes out good we've talked to a lot of fans. Over the course last couple of days about what the bills have gone here and that includes the Tyrod Taylor decision. Of course as well and what that means moving forward. And even what it might mean to this year's draft in all these moves that have been made so far. Maybe chiefly Micah Hyde and what that means to the drafters we've spent so right I'm considering safety. As an option at number ten and I a analysts say just bicker probably use another safety and if one of these kids were there in super talented like maybe you almost have to do but. Devoting your biggest offseason free agent. Acquisition to that position sort of makes me feel like you're next biggest asset you have this next biggest thing you have to spend. Is going to be spent on the same position. It's funny because. Two broke peppers is basically the college version. Of Micah Hyde. Although he played linebacker you know and and a certain corner safety he was more of a linebacker who can play safety. He's not to eat he also said at the Tom nine I asked him can you play nickel corner yet. He he thinks he can play anywhere may be kidding I don't know I think heated struggle a little bit man to manage it the NFL level doing that that's fine but. I just wonder now if we're talking about how if he's trying to build a defense as these guys. Does he go with a guy like that because. Now maybe that's it they're doing their they're moving guys are also content I can't take a guy like that ten. I need a guy can plug and play I don't know peppers can plug and play right away in the NFL I think you need more firm's bottom where he's going to be but yet Bulldog I mean. The the route I thought this team would go from the beginning was. I said that they would probably invest it safety or linebacker free agency but I saw them not doing that at wide receiver in going that in the draft night I still think now we're what they've done. That becomes a much much in May be in May be OJ Howard tight end me if you're gonna get there or whatever right. I think pass catchers guys to help out there now we're talking about that as much more the conversation attend his. I can't the only person that hears you mentioned orgy power a couple of times a segment and and we've party talks Don. Jared Cook and Martellus Bennett players that the bills have been at least loosely attached to were rumored to be interested in. And thinking. Tight end I've already got Charles clay and I already have a tough time getting this quarterback T utilized him right water might doing with another tight end if they were to go that. I don't know the only thing I can think of is going back to what I just said which is they're just trying to create mismatches and help the quarterback out the trying to help him out there trying to give him. More options to be able to throw the bigger guys but I agree would you the other thing I say is. You know you do have Charles clay and the books for quite a bit of money he's a good football player Charles clay is a good player you know I mean I get it they're overpaying him essentially. We know us is also pretty physical Leary and he's on your depth chart I mean do you think nick O'Leary he's just a blocker now I don't know how that shakes out. The one thing at the caution people against all the time and me myself is to. You get guys you also think in the future. Maybe Charles clay is one year left on this team I don't know me well that's what the plan you know not just for this year comes to mind as you're talking mirror real quick is I wonder if they have reason to be worried about his health correct you never know right now at an injury no doubt problems like is that you know that's. But to beat off news new coaching staff comes in and says. Okay why was he on the injury report every single week. Well you know he's got this knee issue well art well this is something we need to talk about right right I do I trust that this player is going to be available to me that's right so I I do think all that comes into play. 8030 by 51888550. To 550. Kind of free for all the bills here while sales here for a couple of hours into it let's talk to Tony. First up here on WGR right Tony they for calling your on the air. Sure they were when I got it all. So I'm wondering if you know maybe during the course of this season we look Beckett yesterday. And regardless of how high do you and I expected to be. Well our home and and state debt the Cleveland State he'd that we sign the order the rate I guess I'm just open that because he seemed to be such an early target. And he you know he was penciled in to their plans and got injured. Is it possible that we found a diamond I've heard nothing I'm wondering if you've got. Contract details that might lead us to you know some sort of idea as to whether or not he's a roster locked. Not I mean I don't know about that he's a young guy you'll lawyers a young guy in ice a phenomenal athlete and we take the skin is atlases and in high school he was the state player of the year. In baseball it was drafted by the Florida Marlins he was the state player of the year Campbell offense and defense and football. And he was their conference player of the year in basketball he's an amazing athlete but you know he goes to the NFL and opera Morgan State goes the NFL and you know he doesn't have either he is he's played corner he's played safety. And I think the attraction to him is he's young he's young he's athletic. He's versatile I think you could probably say he's pretty much a roster lock at this point but I don't know what's gonna happen also remember Tony. Just because they sign him early doesn't mean he was number one priority. Maybe he just said oh yeah I like that I want to go to buffalo is an opportunity Eric may maybe he wanted to get to jump on before other people sign elsewhere. To limit his opportunities and those other spots and not have a market for him. Got yeah I do I do think the numbers might tell a little something right you have not. No I don't have anything to him yet so I'll look for that and if I can't I'll I'll I'll I'll tell you. So what does that what are the what is it telling us about Corey Graham and why he's not already. Out the door. They need and he's CC's player under contract in particular and everybody. So they need them I mean he may be its release of they get a couple guys they like put. You know we still a player under contract and obviously that not a huge contract right to know McCain was account I think before Mel I guess the cap and we can laugh ha ha ha. You but I but I mean. What I I did I hear talk it weighed on the road in ninety guys got to commend your compete so I don't know up bankrupt. Are joining for the call 8030551888550. To 550. NFL free agency is two days old the bills have made some moves they also renegotiated the contract of their starting quarterback. Earlier this week we've got sale here in studio until 5 o'clock talking about all of it I am the Bulldog. More calls from effort after this on WG. This player's name. Add to this point you'll see a lot of overlap there with and intangibles. Toughness versatility in this case as is accused of Mike and you look at his career he's played multiple positions he played in Iowa had a great career we find good football players and he's played in nickel position the corner position and safety position so we just felt like this is a great value for us and good football player and he's played in big games and so we're very fortunate to have my. That is bills head coach Sean McDermott talking yesterday. While awaiting. A news conference where there are newly restructured. Quarterback or quarterbacks not restructure his contract was structured as sorry it's Friday actually is he had surgery bit of very structured okay. Haley McDermott spoke yesterday we have some free agents talk today south by Joseph was here sitting in for Mike for a couple of hours. I am the bull by the sabres a Blue Jackets coming up tonight at seven pre game it's six rob ray will move from his usual 4 o'clock MB spot. 25 of you on the lookout for that just make you noted. So else here we've got some folks who wanna talk bills football on the lines and you can be vaccinated 030550. And 1888. By fifty. 2550. A a busy day. And may be friends surprised to see them sign a safety to a thirty million dollar contract it it is not. By a current NFL standards like some chatter big contract I think it's kind of maybe even pedestrian right but. For me I wasn't expecting to see the bill sign anybody to thirty million dollar contract. No I really wasn't either. But it but I figured if they were going to it might be at that position I actually thought Tony Jefferson would be a guy that they might target there they didn't he got big money to go play in Baltimore. They want to getting high and I was a guy that I put on my name a player that can be that potential targets but yet but but. You know you never know how a guy like that is valued in this sleek. Some tees they say he said it's it's interesting he said sometimes it's a curse because T think he really don't have a position. They don't have it they don't have a need for you and I think that's the problem my algebra peppers I think that's the problem try to put a value at a guy like that have you told me the bills were gonna sign. Micah Hyde I would probably say yeah they get paid good money to someone's gonna wanna pay more but at the same time I can't. Value him correctly not knowing because I don't know safety is Warner what does he do and it's hard to do that. So I grew the and then down. You know I never thought they would spending a wide receivers just it just not in this team's nature to do that they're going to have a fifth year option I've seen what can they pick up. So that that's some big money they're gonna spend their. I do I crack myself. I asked about core agreements contract I told you formally he actually counts five point six on the cap which is pretty hefty so you wanna get out of it that's fine. But again. I know they might yet have they may all children are gonna have a better idea that's right I mean if you still have money why. It's not like he's costing you your so tight right now against the cap man they cleared the decks a little bit with some money that they they could use. And right now he's on the books at a at a number that. Apparently they're willing to live with. Was having a guy that I think they're OK with Corey Graham should fit pretty good this defense I mean he's they're gonna play mostly cover three zone defense and he'll be OK I. I understand why they would keep them I I don't have to move on from guys all the time just because they're older make more money. Today it was a day that I heard a lot of fans tweet me about moving on from there what why is it good. Hear why would you because sit because rank Roy's generating its interest seriously. You how many times I get tweeted today Bulldog people tell me I can't believe they're gonna let Ryan grow or go just let it just wouldn't keep on are you nuts. Eric what isn't so much better of a football player that right groin. If he was that he wouldn't be starting ahead of them. Wright is a nice player he's an affiliate if you might a future in this league and down the road that he does start Eric what is one of the best centers in this league. I don't care that he 31 may be that's actually not bad for his supper is up question on right stop I mean what. Why don't we have to always when I don't know about from good football player. Because they're making a little bit of money might might Soledad be because with contract is up after next year yes it is okay. We need you wouldn't wanna lose a guy do you watch play seven games this place and an app I am not here to tell you what I I didn't analyze it is is usually stayed heavily but. But that might be a part of what got connecting like a I wanna lose the guy that is might fall back if Eric would either becomes too expensive ones contractors opera would. And you also know the player though right I mean I'm sure in that building or any organization. They understand I would tell you this and I don't know this. He isn't told me this personally but just judging by my own relationship with a Eric. He likes living hero wants to be a buffalo bill and I would think that when the time comes they could probably work out. A little bit more. Year a few more years on his contract which I'm fine with I think I think he's 31 I'm not even sure. He's fine like you don't need to cut every good football players simply because they're a little bit older and making more money you need those guys to. 8030551888550. To 550 back to the phones gym. Is first up the segment hello Jim thanks for calling your on the air. Sure I audit act and talk about. A potential white. Pit salt. I would ball over like ten or light a light back. Collegial and her idol it especially anyway. What number. Oh. I didn't injected and didn't tell open Zach brown already signed somewhere Kurt I hear the word was he was headed adult to Miami but I don't know if that. Between initially materialize right what do we have there. And it looks I think that it's looking like maybe you said the dolphins are trying to go OK he's expressing his thing August between depression and once and I side with someone else to know I know I'm not coming back. Yeah pretty sure he knows that and you know that's the case and I don't know if that's because a financials. And that's because they don't. There's certain things about it fit that they don't like I think you and I can sit here and say do they need him he's an athletic linebacker Brent. John McDermott may feel otherwise I press Jim had to use Jimmy said you had a question about a receiver. Yet what where he or so a couple ago so neither girl number one. What did you pick. Little of it Taylor actually there to. In her not virtually out terror site locks and power not important and what number three out there. Get better than good wet and quite frankly that we can match her original birth. Well the guy that I really would like to see this team go get is Cordero Paterson. Cordero Paterson is. A guy that has not really been a very good wide receiver and I see that like why would you want sell he started to beat perform better last year his fourth year. He's got to learn to run better routes but he's super athletic he's he's taller. And he's also historically believe it or not one of the greatest all time kick returners through his first four years in this league. That's the kind of guy don't really likes. Kick returner who can play on offense her. Receiver can return kicks our one up what it cause you don't ask too much of him in the clear wrap up I write things I think that's the case and you can he's been underwhelming to receive no doubt about it. But again. What's been the theme get the bigger bodies nasal skinny at the look at his vitals but he's a taller guy right. But I mean that would fit the prototype to what they say is long he's long period line. So you're not asking me number one receiver maybe even at a number two. But he got the can contribute I. I would rather easily have on this team Cordero Paterson than just an honor a tight that. Court or patching gives me a lot more that I can work with around the football field. That then just honored us so I would easily go that route. First and foremost on. I would love him Terrelle Pryor and I can spend the money for trump park can't see that I'd be shocked if they did that he's gonna get a nice salary somewhere right. I'd be really surprised the bill's rant but you never know what that I guess they they do that you said earlier that about fifteen million left about. In the end that's counting paying the draft picks writes I think to play within free agency they should have fifteen maybe even a little bit more than that but yeah. Mean duke duke that that might if you wanted to just stop there and it probably can't believe there are there other -- other well. Parts of the roster feel outright right here fits all this million dollar dies and in the fill out deal. But like that's that in as a receiver but is that you can get a receiver for and you get a nice one what what about it ten. The do you think. This team devotes. Vet number ten pick to wide receiver. Think it's really possible. You get one day to help your quarterback to help your offense. You you've you've used free agency to help your running game in your versatility you are still. This season and next season away from having to do a big deal with Sammy Watkins. Although his cap number it will increase immediately years will be huge next year or next Fryman at this coming year the season after next when he Tina's cap number if they exercise the fifth your option should be about twelve and half mile marker that's that's pretty good chunk but still you do they would have still another year to buy CDs he conceivably could wrap this rookie yes have him on his rookie contract. For this year and next. And then do the big deal with Watkins. And still have three years old rookie can't. And ran like even franchise what gives the year after that. OK so think about that you could see me essentially under control over three more years anyway wreck at whatever price the you say is good with you because. He's got his rookie deal and on this year fifth year option in 2018 franchise tag between nineteen if you can't even work out a long term agreement and in the meantime the new rookie. Mike Williams Cory Davis they're playing her a rookie contract through those first three years. I sure hope there's a couple things that have to happen with Watkins you're even just thinking and it's not just down the road but the the big contract. His health tested stabilized and obviously. And I think are on the bills under that they have the I think find a way to get him off but he has to be healthy for that to happen of course so the the first part of it. I think comes first but then I've got to find a way to make him. I guess as a unified way to make him wanna beat your you know I mean look I got to give him an a nine to catch season and what would make him feel like. I'm going to be a star in buffalo just so far it's just it hasn't really taken flight. Plus we know that he had a very good relationship with Sanjay allow Sundays on in the new wide receivers coach. Cut me Egan is his name he's coming he's coming in now from east Carolina. We'll see you know how they mash all those things matter you know I'm in. I agree with you now the good news is for next year they have a lot of cap room right now sitting there for next year that you know you could start to plan for a little bit you can budget that in. And you know we'll see where it goes with him with the fit your option but they have until early may to make that decision by the way. 8030551888550. To 550 Dennis next up here on WGR thanks for calling Dennis you're on the air. They guys are good thanks. So a couple things sell you just and it's such of course I was gonna ask about Terrelle Pryor because obviously. The big gains and a big body. And you're talking about all the build churches in some big body it's. And I didn't know how much money we have left to spend it looks like you can do it Tibet too so. I don't know if he's a bigger guy too he's a big body he's he's a super athlete and he's just emerging I think. At what really he can do in this league and that's why he's so intriguing to so many so many teams. Yeah I mean it. I don't know if you look at Europe fifteen million dollar a year and a deal I think though because I'm not for him but I mean you can it if you came you know signed him to a deal that. You know somewhat reasonable I mean man that would be awesome. Armed for the bill after losing being lot of guys that we lost it at the receiver position and nudges you know knowing Tyrod needs some extra help. I think they'll be dealt will be obviously up I think everybody look like have another team but. Another thing if you were just mentioning the coach from east Carolina. I think the most productive receiver in and college football this series that can be great Jones right. And he went to east Carolina. And you know the build to build a links you know Williams or this court Davis hit both of them are also. I'm but I wonder if you know maybe we were thinking about maybe going which like a girl prior. And then maybe waiting to like a second or fourth round it's if they don't last that long if they could pull that off to him and have that trio of guys. I think it's a total possibility absolutely I wouldn't do it at ten obviously you're not saying that. But I look at the second round maybe galaxy Jones highly highly productive in college. His wide receivers coach is now in buffalo. He's a really good football player. I think this is the kind of guy that's that you do go out there and I think that he set the all time. Career singles yet the NCAA record for catches by the kid up you know he's highly productive. I agree that I think that is certainly around they can go maybe maybe ten is. A defense of players up like that and then also you get a guy legs a Jones in the second round but his. His stock is gonna start to rise as I think he goes to the troop pre draft process. Thank you for the call that's appreciated sell vouchers and for Mike I am the bulldogs lines are open for you. Bills they restructure the Carter to their quarterback will will get to that in more depth than we have so far while Seles here until 5 o'clock. And what they've done so far in free agency and how will impact. They're strategy moving into the NFL draft at the end of April eagle 30551888552. Effective the I'm the bulldogs this is WG. Let's see. Howell. This is not a fair thing to do you sell because you are. Not multitasking. You out keeping track of the free agency tracker. Interacting with your your audience our audience on Twitter. But I heard you this morning. We've Jeremy you're leery and we you have breaking news owed here. Have we just talked about it Corey Graham. Has been really storage and been released say go. Tony. Tony called Tony called the shot. We'll see you don't know this is proving the moment I wanna wanted to have some fun with The Who. But sales got a tweet there's you know he's the bills beat I'm sorry did that during your your read there but that's OK I was gonna ask you are just pull out 12 that. You were here were Jeremy and I heard him do the deal of the day. Do you remember what the deal of the day is today. No I remember what the with the best that was noted here that the deal about the hunger got you go to. Is till the day from our buffalo personally thirty dollar certificate to be yelling go restaurant and Lancaster. For only fifteen dollars and yelling goat satisfies any appetite for lunch dinner late night gnashing with great burgers. Award winning wings and tossed pizzas and more go to Bible parks dot com 8030551. 888 by 52 part fifty those other numbers breaking news SL just mentioned what you lost in the off the moon the hungry goat read there Corey Graham. Bill safety has been released he was weighted to count over five million dollars on the salary cap this year. And we had the first caller of the day like 315. Mentioned whether or not that would be a good idea. And looks like the bills have decided to rob a did sign a pair of safeties yesterday. In free agency one Micah Hyde is new on the boat a big deal. While the other. Lawyer from Cleveland younger guy and maybe a little old we certainly less money and maybe not as big a deal but still a couple of safeties were brought in. And court Graham and Erin Williams both of the bills starting safeties from last year of the Williams of course missed a lot of it being hurt. Both same ball starting safeties from last year's bills team. Have been moved out 8030551888550. 2550. Those are the numbers lights talk with Nick Price nick you're on WGR thanks for calling. They got it in Syria jerk. Quick questions with tourists signing. Aaron Taylor. You'd think both will confuse them or leverage in the draft. It is our quarterback left at three or four Eric. Trade him out. In giving it some good scattered and now. I'm sorry laid out again who use so so maybe people for using Taylor. Rule leverage under Arctic. Now that trading him I can't see that now. What back you'll want betrayed him. For them tick in the first round sport. Now I can't see that they've they've made a commitment tire until the next two years this is that they're not. Thanks nick yeah how they they've they've put up there the forty mission to talk about you know the future in the the team I want to be here all that they're not they're not going through those emotions just trade and that's on me. Tyrod Taylor came back here. Under. I'm pop Selma say this went on under duress. He and his agent could not find what they wanted on the open market. Sold. With that said that they now that doesn't mean Blake. With certain cost and price points in mind that he wouldn't have some appeal to someone but. Nobody. Was willing to pay him. In free agency what makes you think what his value in some trade would give the bill some kind of leverage to go get like somebody at number three or four. I don't know I just can't even imagine how you can cock that scenario like absence of strong. Going where it or go through what he ramifications are Corey Graham side contract we come back because because there is some cap savings here that they now have more money to play with but. Also what's happening here I mean this is this is secondary it's gonna look a lot different actually out well. New new coat that's right defense on the ground and in scheme that stands to reason we'll also talk more about Taylor and not so much with this this is this callers idea but. What what Taylor really represents. For the bills in terms of quarterback for this draft and moving beyond this. In the next hour sales here until five got rob ray coming up by the way at five normally he's at four and game day. We moved him to five sabres and Blue Jackets tonight at seven pre game roles that six. And that's when we'll talk to pull him open by the way as well sail again in for Mike on the Bulldog and this is WG.
