Automatically Generated Transcript (may not be 100% accurate)
Joseph this guy has. Probably not start to work to Jodie -- -- 12014 draft yet have you. I think I'm a little visit with a -- thirteen draft. Since that night in the free -- -- between. Joseph worked for thinking at this radio station I just don't drag us down. You spoke to Fitzpatrick last night how was he doing what you know it -- satellite images reading the transcript he wasn't caught by surprise but what it what sense did you get in. You know listening to the tone of his voice and talking to him last night. Well you know I think what we're. -- him he's always kind of had the same disposition. No matter what was going on during the course decease and and I think he's just -- that. Goes with the flow regardless of of what's happening he understands. All the business side of things. You understand that a decision had been made. You know -- -- seem like he was a pretty good spirits but. The whole idea of because he he truly did. Low being in buffalo and playing for the bills. It's just it it didn't work out and and you know viewers. -- -- a woman at dinner or the fact that he couldn't really. You know build or help this team into a -- so. And they he knows that the decision that dream date so -- I think he was OK with that now is just more. More of the white stuff in. In dipping -- them in and packing up his they use. You know -- hold him in stuff like that movie gets family out of buffalo its when there -- there for. For during the season so that that part of it they're probably going to be tougher that's what it's proper to really had implied. You know for what he. Just went through hours before before I talk to them. You know it's -- much use -- pretty good spirits. Why wouldn't he take the restructured Joseph do you think he's gonna get a better deal -- better chance summer also with the bills are offering. Well meaning it's not or that he's one of the the better options available in free agency right now. And you saw Barack more he got. Four million dollars per season to be a back up. So. I wonder if so you know all things considered. If the there it if Ryan in there -- agent did Jimmy sexton. Believe that. He can find a similar contract elsewhere or he probably as a better opportunity deployed so. I think. I think we -- You know even though it's a little bit of a shock that maybe he didn't. He he didn't take that deal but. -- you know -- -- still some. Some some teams out there that are in need of course of action in things like debt. I think there're there're really just does try to try to start freshen. And if if there -- chance that they were going to you know meet -- Three million dollar roster bonus and make debt they'll make their overall base salary this year. You know there are gonna hold onto but. Since that wasn't an option. I don't know calling the blocks is the right word for the right term but. They have they elected to not not were structural all the bills and and that's the decision that was made by -- -- mixing company. OK so how does this impact the position going forward Tarvaris Jackson and -- corporately two quarterbacks on the roster and we've talked about the draft and you grew up together you know maybe they didn't necessarily address quarterback high in the draft do you think this now. Changes that are or even does it guarantee they address quarterback early in the draft this year. I want to see what they do it free agency first. I don't. Necessarily I would but surely push away the idea that they try and side -- diet free agency here. -- you know there are the names. That might be of interest to the bills maybe -- Jason Campbell might be an interest. Interesting game to the bills. -- water two year deal something like that. I don't think it necessarily. We are clean they a drastic of a quarterback. Because right now operational have options. They're impatient forces. They can get you know. But what a party -- that. Property conversation. Here's what he really pleased about adopting Goodyear for the quarterback. You know that -- I don't necessarily think that there'll be. Obama. You're in cornerback but. I'm sure. Extradite LA is there and in in its very big guy that they believe can develop into that stretch as quarterback. You know. -- won't hesitate but. -- No yeah it didn't hurt me the past couple weeks I haven't really thought that. They've -- I haven't really thought that it's and absolute guarantee that they drafted quarterback anyway that was pretty much knowing that. There is is that that it's about all of the spectrum so. -- wallet probably does increase beyond a little bit out of the good security by any means. Joseph now that if the Vijay is officially gone what do they do at left guard. There are quick and looked at -- chat right -- if they what they could probably get in relatively cheap. I -- kind of shocked by the contract that that that Lewis Sebastian has got from. From Denver and you know in just how little Oilers but I think that was more -- case swear that's just wanted to go play with Peyton -- and everything. Because he he got under. Under five billion a year which was you know what kind of a shock compared to what will feature got to Tennessee. So they can do that or you know what they can go out in the draft. They can't take guy in the third or fourth round. May be a you know a guy that probably is going to they probably should get a lot of lot more mentions in buffalo says that he does only because she's an offense like a bit but Justin Peelle the this Syracuse offensive tackle who has very short arms that a lot of people are projecting. -- -- in the NFL is probably -- -- four stroke picked got history with a -- that broke off but the white guy. It makes a lot of sense so maybe maybe they looked his way in the server or throughout the tribal placed will be tree so. The whatever they're gonna do. You know they do they have to. There have to find someone because quite frankly. It'll probably brought it to get a target or. Or whoever there are gonna have it there great they'll think Thomas Welch on the roster chief Williams. These are guys that mention it anywhere near. They'd be near the starting. Responsibilities so. And now in this day after that there besides sub one. And probably sights somewhat and maybe traps aboard just in case retractable. -- draft -- -- Ready -- with their but I think it's an area that they there will need to address. Fully it our wrap up with Joseph let's get added here was his comments on the quarterback glad that your average out. -- -- -- Our server -- suit brought here to answer it and I read. Polar order where. I put Fitzpatrick inferred earlier every -- we didn't do anything. I think we should have concentrated on the defense. Wrote that the -- for Patrick. To burst your ex and I mean grace and you see this tightrope. Terrible. Ordinary -- -- -- -- -- -- the quarterback. For a citizen it should just go to slicks are curious and let the industry. I don't I I have I have wonder what show you listen and I have no particular allegiance. Syracuse. And I'll tell you that I thought I -- two of his games he looked really good against Missouri. -- and in the pinstripe bowl but I have no allegiances Syracuse but -- the best quarterback right now -- I don't care. Whenever but I I'd like but I saw against Missouri body was -- -- it really did get a look like get a good arm good smarts mobility. And leadership skills I like a lot of the stuff I've seen and heard about it. That we really haven't seen however Texaco. Right we have -- and we've seen a lot of Brian Fitzpatrick throw scene and too many missed fires. And that was outlawed in in the good guy I think. It's because a lot of people media you know -- Rowland enjoyed talking with private Specter in the caliber. Or Ike. It's just he just wasn't. Good enough to. -- that kind of contract wasn't good enough or that kind of money mr. Obama throws he. 79 total turnovers in in sixty restarts. So this is. It's it's a decision that had to be made. But you know it it it didn't happen to a nice guys -- and so you know it's it's kind of -- that respect but. You know it's they and -- -- edit edit scores of vertical business and and that's that's just the position that it. -- and you all remember him it's not all on him and I'll remember him as the first quarterback we got to watch on -- 22 film. And frequently we would -- throws that -- there that were there were dismissed some I mean best of luck to woman I don't. Doubt that he could be and a team that wins games that's built. Around and that's you know about as good as possible is if Arizona can put together good but great defense. I wouldn't. Suggest he can't win but I think it was. Can we talk relic when he -- like it was time except when he's -- while longer but. It -- time had gone and does it I think it it had happened they -- get -- as a result but I I think ultimately it's it's a move to make them better. -- the time spent for the NFL I mean you know for years a pretty long time in the NFL so. So they'll are accurate I can liken it to a little bit would erupt but. It -- it was time for him ago it's. -- you know not that a decision that probably. It you know they've they've -- they wanted it to work right it's back to just. It just didn't he just couldn't have stood up that he just didn't have the overall skills that to get the job done no matter how what you sparked earlier. Our -- good work and keep up the good work as I'm sure gonna be really busy in the next few weeks. I got a feeling just a hunch. Thanks you know. Joseph spoke with -- Patrick last night and the -- today the entire transcript of the conversation is available. At WGR 550 dot com -- also got the column on the release itself and the impact on the cap. And he's also got a story on the details of Leodis McKelvin its new contract with the.
