    Everything if you. A discussion on that counselors moment Vince Wilfork has tweeted out that the patriots are letting him go. He has an option on his contract and he issued a statement by a Twitter. That the patriots enforcement Tuesday they will not be picking up his option so. Vince Wilfork will be out on the free agent market. I'll talk about that moment at 80305 get to join us 888552. By Putin today Errol we're discussing Matt Cassel . Bills acquiring Matt Cassel yesterday. We got information at WGR 550 dot com we're getting a reaction to that trade you'd think he will be the
    this first of all. Howard Jeremy good morning yet. So we know Matt Cassel is Ed. What what what what the possible upside for Matt Cassel here this if this best case scenario for Matt Cassel in the Buffalo Bills if B earned the starting job this year is. One. Art I think the best case scenario from
    Deploy running Todd Haley was gonna be as coach offensive mind but Matt Cassel never felt confident so that 2010 season. We didn't have to start looking over his shoulder any more I think Matt Cassel is his own worst enemy when things are going good for Matt Cassel . He plays with confidence he has the fist pump. He likes the dive in the end zone on how would those players elect have a lot of fun but when things go bad he wears it any worse it's about as much as I've seen a quarterback is far as not being. He's able to carry them. You know I guess the PGA Gulfport. There's a bad swing it they get that blocked it out I was minding goes on to the next shot like you know good pros do. Matt Cassel wears his mistakes in my opinion he's not able. To forget about what happened on the previous player of the previous series in a cart series to attempt to the next series so I don't see Matt. In the long term starter things got ugly here in Kansas City really ugly look Mecca so they're great season in 2010. It been since there was injuries and the fact that the general manager would try to tip the Matt Cassel is that they really never gave. Met much Vijay a tip or 2010. Let me ask you this Taylor right the good

Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman -- this year on WGR -- having said that. When you get back and start playing again we have a chip on your shoulder -- up a point to prove to a lot of people. Well art portrait of god we don't know you know what -- -- to -- the focal. -- awarded -- the one year old or whatever people. Richard Marshall -- that there. The beauty of how to get full blown up but one particular. Being what happened in their troop deal go to last year -- I have a -- -- whatever -- do a minute Jim. Probably did you wanna go to rehab. Or black -- -- walk around chips -- actually. You know it washing it to Rico should. Look good Specter -- -- you know what relevant logs -- well. -- impairment this year on WGR. -- my partner Jeremy is a big fan of Arthur -- going back to training camp and certainly yet he -- in big plays for the bills as the season went along I know he talked about how. You're one of the guys seed -- brains and tried to you know learn from some of the veteran guys on the team. What can you tell us you know watching him what can you tell us so far that you like about Arthur moats and what is potential is in the league. Well coordinated I -- look we don't -- movies. You want look at hopeful that it could your dedication. Ambivalent retreat into the ball out of work habits and all of -- it ought. Back in visual prevent coverage chemical company not shared. You know politically -- to do it had already all of -- don't know what to look like -- kind of shoulder slump they've got no doubt pick up a long long -- painful all. Eight compared reported -- got a guy like that who can play you know commitment you know allowed people Bellamy reluctant to -- people may it may be a place. You know they're completed they're you know. You know you've got out the color game football and learn how to play football everything else in the -- but want to they're -- people ought to want to clear. Article are -- all in never figure out optical belong to learn how to do. You still have that you are still face in in maven and a lot of people are considered are are definitely down on him. Draft that the first round me physically. My most bills fans are probably think the abilities there somewhere but for -- for whatever reason it's not coming out you have faith you think that it's just a matter of time for hammer one. I think you have to learn how to play. We'll all have our biggest such quality report updates. On your got -- no -- some years ago. And but what to a they're not likely work the work the -- the local paper here. We've -- to drop it that early April all you -- for gonna go for a period you know people properly labeled the leader. You don't need at our -- -- people will be a critical look -- -- never warmed up they're they're they're here. Our outlook it searchable and create you -- acute -- well would it hurt look what are out of football. Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman with a -- one thing I wanted to do ask about four let you go. Do you watch much college football that we've been talking a lot. The last few weeks about the draft the -- getting the number three pick the other night we all watched Auburn we're talking about cam Newton in -- fairly how much college football do you watch in -- any of the guys but you've been watching that you think yet you know liked that -- on our team. Well you know -- -- -- -- -- gonna -- you know -- you're open what I would all the all the market look more clear. Are. You -- a remote what I -- it would only got the comp -- from -- card right. They're really -- cannot delete. All of opened it got a great former speaker of the outcome would do the creeping corporate level well -- -- want a little more secure. Around the ball traveled all make moves or anybody who caught your eyes. All get your guy about all -- you've got bomb. You know that the late for a you don't pick they have -- -- up about Russia they're. They'll -- pretty good. I think you've made law on Miller yeah. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- approach particularly public. They delegate from Trammell children of the compact popular and every PM new Kmart Kmart are now -- not -- -- -- -- probably an -- for council what are. -- change will demonstrate that we. So we look into traders -- gastric problem that occurred up earlier. And it we will go up there or radar. It's funny you mention you know guys in the and the draft being kind of weird like that -- one of the examples on people saw them. Ask me about the draft. I remember looking in a book and you were listed in this book as the second best linebacker to come on the draft the number one prospect -- linebacker was Dan Cody. So no friend no no offense Dan Cody but yet it's just an example of how it art house gonna work out because you're ranked tide -- you're gonna be good. It's -- it's about results and to get their. -- absolutely in the united looked back Iraq in -- from from from the -- pepper -- it bought one for alchemy. You could you milk diapers the awards who economy it would not element of the candidate got mad at me to a guy who. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Have you seen did you see any cam Newton or nick fairly and I'll -- -- did you watch Auburn play argun at all. Would you think of the of Newton and fairly. You look at him and that game. You know you're good enough to win and comfort around authority. You know what are they climate did it. Looking to get a cup should step forward and no one puppy mill worker -- look it'll -- out school. He'll look looked very warm -- here today. Their championship -- -- support. I lied to you shot I have one more thing that just popped into my head. It because we brought this up last week we heard your comments -- -- a radio station in. In terms of an impact on free agency. This is you know this is not the most attractive place the plane they have made the playoffs in forever. Would you pick up the phone. And called guys do you think the fact that you signed here and you know maybe you'd pick up a phone call guys do that any any impact. Would you do that could help the bills and attracting. Players who might not normally give buffalo the time of day. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What quality. -- a lot of entry. Our own or. In low a lot not going to be in it. In the a lot but it -- What. It. -- -- -- -- -- You know not be right now where I'm appreciate. If not right now. And create a trip -- great now and it. Didn't do you -- it will be pretty. But you know -- time -- -- you know share of those names of those you just let us know okay. I don't did you get it. Yeah that's our you don't get find for tampering at the front office single in the worry about that stuff. It we'll show we appreciate it coming -- thank you very much for your time. Enjoy the rest of the offseason and obviously looking forward to seeing healthy and in the bills uniform. --

What do you think about the Bills acquisition of Matt Cassel?
  I like it. They can win with Cassel, a strong run game and great defense.
  I don't like it. He's done nothing since his big year in 2010.
  The Bills should still bring in another QB to compete.
