Morning guys then right is Matthew put me on hold the first word I heard. Were. -- was on. Graphic. A or Europe. Not -- -- you probably weren't sure the combined they drug test media. Arrigo what good are right. Georgia really Howard just over the story did you suggest the bills really could possibly maybe not draft a quarterback at some distressed. -- perimeter -- that army band. Amazing at what what would be the scenario that seriously for that to not trip to Quebec would just be that they don't feel someone's good enough or. Is it may -- there's only one or two guys they target and they just. If they go before that they wanna take them what what scenario to think. I think probably the latter and it if they don't end up with. With a guy that they believe in you know the can be a franchise guy and either. Eight overall pick or 44. There's there's a bunch of cream back could be targeting quarterbacks in there early second round of rain right where the bill might want to so. If if they really have liked guy in mind at NATO take him at eighth overall. Then they might have to rate back up to trade back -- the -- ground and that getting back Cairo will both probably missed out of himself. Mean they're there are still believe that the Bill Belichick quarterback at some point in the draft. I think -- if they don't end up taking one in the in in the first. Two or three rounds and you'll want to see more before they're fixed -- or something like that but. You know I can foresee any instance where the -- don't necessarily take a back this year because ever laid out last week you know. This team has a lot of holes that fell and hit him you know they can't that they can't or there. For potentially missed some graphics and I mean right now you talk about what they need on the roster. And -- sort of running back they need to pull back they need wide receivers they need -- -- debt they need -- guard is that they need. Maybe another tackle to replace Sam Young may need. Any defensive alignment they need your linebackers most certainly they need -- passport and linebacker they need quarterbacks they need is safeties so they -- they need a lot of different things resolved he didn't. So they end up not wearing a quarterback because they don't want a forced the issue and and I can foresee and not -- a little -- -- school of thought of having -- the having the rookie quarterback whoever becomes clear that in -- -- say it's 2014. If they don't have a taken quarterback early on in this draft. Having him come in with the team that they want in place before we get better so he's not destined to fail well. So I'm not so I'm not indicate one way or the other that that they're not going to draft quarterback. But I think I don't think it -- open and shut the case as we once thought it would. If you have any questions about the draft or free agency 8030550. -- it was about another ten minutes. Free agency begins in seven days five hours 48 minutes and 28 seconds from now mark. Joseph in your. But I guess I think teams can start talking to agents on Saturday the ninth and and the actual. Tactical signing period opens up the drop in your gut. I started that it is a few weeks ago I think we'll be trees a goner and I I read Tim Graham blog today he spoke to the trail of each it said. There's been no conversation with the bills no offers been made. I think that's another indication that they feel that they're just not gonna wanna pay Libby to what he's gonna look for on the market. But so in your gut what do you think does he stay or go. I think he's got -- it in my gut I keep. It. But that's not ruling out the fact that they could come to a deal with them but -- And I have been wrong before about about that let's start off by. You know the indicator. Which you know we're talking about cap space and what they ask them what they don't have. And also how much do you value because of this -- when you're trying to you know build. And the rest of your roster back up and not to mention that bear. Their leader on the offensive line -- would become a free agent after a neck and so I think it's like. B a a situation where you have to pick your spots. And what I mean by that is with and you'll be tree. Is he going to be worth six and a -- 77 and a half a million dollar. It's per year over the next warrior or can you find a guy to replace him in the draft. Is that you can. Could have side or a million dollar or less. Over the next warriors. You know I know there will be a drop off from from will be relieved starter four straight years to a potential rookie. By you know. How how much longer does that is that the paperback guide to catch up to speed when you got a guy like Eric Wood on the right side and potentially. According -- who who start off the year very strongly support a bill on a black sides so. I think that let Pete street to mean. I wouldn't be surprised -- became backed by. My gut is telling me that I don't know that the builder going to shallow enough money that look -- might be able to field on the open market so. The fact that they haven't. As of when Tim Graham wrote its article for the bulk orders that they -- -- even given him an offer to that point. And I think that excited speaks volumes so. So I think would be tree. In my gut I think he's done about well. 8030550. Joba sky -- this year Alan your -- would you go right ahead. They get more guys first of -- Jala in the ER free agent market I wouldn't waste a draft pick up full backward third running -- -- any second -- tech running back in and out of that they need. Our data -- -- -- that it needs I -- just a hop and real quick. According McEntire is an unrestricted free agent and it again go back to Tim Grammy had a note in his blog the other day. That of a real fullback is a part as a good part of what Doug -- is gonna be doing. Yeah I don't know according MacIntyre is probably my choice -- -- -- anything that goes to Joe's point is he's not saying it's a priority but the point is in need they'll have to address in the softens. My other comment is this it is every other question actually gel -- -- -- -- -- pinstripe all I see him a lot. He reminds me a lot of Russell Wilson you look at the two and they played a tool like I personally would take a chance on him. I like this Patrick a lot but I wouldn't wash my hands of Fitzpatrick. That as a backup but I would take a chance I'm -- net so there really weren't in a geno Smith just doesn't throw me excite you looked awful neck came and I know you can't base it on one -- I don't know I'm just a little skeptical about -- you -- -- a lot about some shorter smaller DiMarco I'm you know JaMarcus -- walking up on the you know on. Now I don't -- -- -- JaMarcus Russell. At the very -- right goodbye -- went oh my god JaMarcus Russell the very least didn't give a crap about his job geno Smith is a slight. People raid went about his work at it. Well order 260 pound quarterback nick couldn't move you -- it. 218 counties -- what do and you re the best of forty out of any quarterback become by that comment is ludicrous. I I guess that I was going more the work -- Joseph because I like I hear stories about how geno Smith. Would played the game on Saturday as soon as the game was over he would pop back into the film room and start looking at the next week's opponent. And later that night email all sorts of stuff to the rest of his offense about things they can do. The beat the team the next week anyway Ryan -- go ahead on that. Well I think the caller is. You know I think she said you know you can't base it -- one game but. But that seems to be the only game in reference things so. But you know I I like you know spent a lot more than I like right now for. -- -- -- -- too much out of that city in terms of being a you know down the field. Long. Don't appeal vertical passing him I think you -- a lot to be desired in that aspect that the game. -- is consistent on intermediate routes and he -- -- badly at times but you know I think you can make those growth underneath but. You know where -- quarterback for me really make their money is on the without a few pros work when you talk about a guy can't really move all are no doubt that is mobile enough. Like he can't really move all that well or you're gonna have to you have to stick in the pocket and can really deliver a strike don't feel I just. I can't scene there that. Doing it unless people medically approved. You know I didn't see all that much. Put him in terms of that aspect of the game. In an all that different games I watched and so I think you know it doesn't have that army just needs to become more consistent. You know I mean he -- etc. -- what for that'll keep that at all. And I think they're different game. A different type quarterbacks. And you know one obviously not much stronger over the armed -- the -- the other and you know to me I think. -- reps that's not a comparison I would panic. I totally geno Smith is that the top quarterback coming out just all year. I know you're you're not very high and massive and and haven't been for what they want what you said he had him rated seventh overall the Quebec crop after the cop -- you still feel that way. Absolutely and I saw him do a lot of the same that that he didn't want but it here to -- You know I don't really care much about. The guys that necessarily. Our and are missing because the timing is off with the receivers that they never throw -- -- I think that's just the part of the column by. I think Cam Newton. Did terribly epic Columbine -- based on completion percentage because people actually track the completion for -- nuclear spoke. Scrutinized by I think get the end of the day when -- when you're familiar with your receivers that's. It's a whole different ball game but the one thing I do look or -- have become pioneers. That -- and you know power -- high in the derived behind long throws down the field on nine route to fly routes and -- Egypt after. I mean watching -- that he was missing guy is by a pretty large distance so. I don't know I. I could be wrong about -- I watched about seven of -- game. And I saw that the Columbine. And I think. Can't release fade. I can I be all that much in terms of him being -- down the field -- that. Really indicates to me that he could be a potential fourth round pick. Or or anything like that so. You know are not all that -- enacted by you know there's there's other guys in the NFL that. You know come up from the from being. Not all that polished in college. And have really improved their arm once they got -- from pro teaching and and things like that so this is not a he damnation on his game altogether and become in the pros and and do very well. But. At this point from what I saw from an actor accused Specter -- just don't know that he's better than some of the other prospects out there. Joseph got a tweet from Paul I know you're also you have your draft ranking as a wide receivers today at WGR 550 dot com you're also working on -- free agency article with with that starting a week from today and the ravens signed -- they said they're not franchise tagging anybody else they have a number of key players trying keep. What about -- LOB their linebacker that's a name out there that he was saying they'd like to keep that up they can afford to keep him in ball Kroger. Maybe -- be is out on the market the bills are train wreck at linebacker is that possible. Well you know I think -- they have enough. Cap room. Potentially spend a little bit more -- one freeagent. Now yeah and now to -- that come down Q are there at linebacker or cornerback. Which is more important to into the defense and which which they tell -- ideally get their hands on more so I think Ellerbe would probably be a guy that that they would consider. I deal in in terms of you know it's coming from. Trying to sustain -- cut from the same clock -- of what Mike Patton like you're running. You know him being a Baltimore them having a ball being a multiple fronts. I think that Baltimore. They could be a solid precursor but. -- -- In terms and because everybody is looking for linebackers and it. If teams are desperate enough they have enough cap room and they can make him a very rich -- think and the they'll be able. Might it be able to keep up. With with that type of place. You just don't know so. I think is a guy that would probably interest them but be there at the dollars and cents at the end of the day to test that depend on the market and -- how strong it is or dialect -- -- you know more call for Joseph B Howard and an obvious guys got a good name and heroic job right -- Just a couple of comments to the question first saw every year -- the same thing about we have needs to drive me crazy. Secondly body -- that he was to bring in a franchise quarterback. And -- wonder what it would cost to bring a guy like Matt Flynn in the -- and free agency. I but they do and they have asthma seemingly as many needs as they did when buddy took -- -- three years ago what a Matt Flynn Joseph what do you think. We're not a creator -- -- that the trader -- try to try to trade arbitrary completely missed that when Joseph thank you would have straight form Alex Smith got -- A high to yeah I mean you would have to pay of that to get. Matt -- right you're -- and as well. Upload or more earth bit rounder. And by. To buddy -- only has six -- this year and keep potentially trade back into the first round. He's given up at walker quarter of -- it's the only way he's c.'s trading up. Trading up Vista at target that the young quarterback topic you're gonna get away -- draft picks or. The -- I -- that competed with partner excellence here. He could pity you could trade future picks right I mean if you you'd trade up Gurney Reynard. Next year you can trade picture next year's draft right I don't know according to exit. If you're gonna trade -- hard to move up when -- don't have much to give your trade to get into the first round generally cost you if you're gonna try to future -- it's gonna be a future first rounder if you do that year traditionally it might cost you just -- -- second -- that's where I've only just seen it lately you're given up you'd be giving up one of -- six picks right up to get reports that that's that's kind of well that's a lot you know to give up. Right he would launch a very. It if they want to move back in the first round it would cut probably cost them their second and third rounder. And then -- down -- pick but laugh whenever you get quarterback of the future that we don't need Oprah and so for Joseph if they get quarterback of the future at the end the day I'm OK with it. If they get their quarterback of the future I would still say move -- to guide a move up in the ground one give up the two and three they need a quarterback -- for -- If they knew if they do trade back in indirectly going to be get real comfortable -- you know guys like David Snow and and Greg void and incorporate Bryant -- roster because because they don't have a lot of. Spock who those those guys are a lot of thought well. Oh is that out of those guys right senior has primal -- bills -- tell those guys other -- okay I'll I'll I'll start researcher earlier. -- -- Ken Sawyer -- actually the sabres to know what. Order a bomb and kill Biggio. Right well we'll look forward to more your articles mr. this guy thanks for coming on. Thanks -- and Jake you're just not on cracked out -- that up for me.
