I lots of talk about. Strange guys got it it will make it we haven't seen each other a long time I've been god. You missed a lot when you -- at all you know beat old Ivan had a chance -- -- because I've been -- you missed the crazy I might Michael was not blowing up while I was on vacation I have no idea you missed a lot. I hurt. I was little I was overseas and you know -- -- -- stuff over there is not. Outside its -- and it felt -- -- -- not exactly what they're talking about in the pubs over there not so much -- -- Harrisburg and everybody else that is cited last three days will require meal. But -- flash cards like. Please -- Decker jets got it okay. And offered a smaller but the really work because if I'm not here repeating twelve times -- -- for updates. It doesn't quite sink in the same don't ask me I would actually in -- we get to training camp and you do the game where we say just the guy is now and I I guess I remember Decker and a member Revis got a lot of ground to cover today the bill signed three guys yesterday. But the big news in the division as the jets got. A receiver that badly needed and the patriots got derail Revis meaning of course they are genius geniuses. I don't wanna admit this is I don't want to get a big head. But a lot of times you say things that turned out to be truth and your head of the pack. I cannot tell you know we will get to the bills I promise at what none of the three guys you're gonna go. Well. All they're OK and that their needs and they got you know hey guys but nothing that's gonna like. Knock your socks off and make it like -- crazy right I think it's affair yeah it's serve. Role players are possible buyers pieces that I yes I'm -- it would all threes they're that they're better -- left guard but it would have taken much. It felt like they've got they've added a run stopping linebacker who will be out there for run plays that doesn't really do much against the pats. They've got -- they -- quarterback depth which you never have enough love and a guy who can also help that was special teams. I like Graham of the three -- Graham the most has nothing do with the fact he -- -- with -- But the big news in the division is is Decker to the jets and they really need their receiving -- that. And Revis -- think -- here's your New England last few days. New England let me backtrack they get it -- to -- who was red -- coming out of college and had some problems in Tampa to the point they decided to get rid of them. But Belichick brings to lead into new England and he's -- genius because. It'll make it work because you can bring in -- guys in New England in that locker room will sustain our rights genius for bringing in the league was a by the way you know shut down Jimmy Graham -- -- Good for knowing okay. -- to lead league's New England. Their best cornerback one of their better defensive players secondary player leaves knowing that. But he's a genius because. Look what -- -- was Denver team there's your flash card game to lead got like fifty whatever million dollars well. New England's a genius because they didn't give to lead that kind of money. OK so there are genius for bringing him and he played really well and then they're Smart for letting them go and not giving them fifty something million dollars fine. Revis comes. They're geniuses they got Revis is. Only one pick up twelve million dollars in cap room for one. But they are geniuses because it's only one year and they don't married themselves to long term contract. It's like there's no. Is there ever lose situation that they bring -- -- great they lose and it's great to bring in Revis rates -- one year. It's also great Albert Haynesworth that's just a great movie -- -- and the original well that's great because you know they don't put up with that kind of stuff side. Yet it's it's Alec guild Guinness commercials for the guys others -- -- brilliant. Brilliant -- -- the patriots do that's that's pretty much out. Revis is a very good -- copies of tremendous quarterback that's cool but I just. I guess my point is we can't give a team credit for every single move even went. Bring a guy in great loosely guide the lord that's great bring a guy and great one here that's a. And you know what else they deserve credit for not acting like every move deserves a lot of let's give them some credit let's get -- some credit for that. They're they're good and they are good that I liked the Revis who -- I think it's a really good move for them and he's better than to -- Yeah you know -- it was really good and they've got a better quarterback than to lead. But I don't it's one year and it's twelve million dollars against the cap how is that genius. I was talking Matthew before the show asking about Revis and how good he is and if he's this -- -- why would the by the bucks let him go -- one of the best fortunately what why do you kind of lose wealth to save money on the -- pro football focus ranked as the number one quarterly. I was watching -- after about this there were two reasons he -- is so stupid this is it true reasons he cited what temple let him go eight he was to a roster bonus this week. A million and a half dollars that's nothing guests at the feet past scorer in the league and if he was on the roster this week. The draft pick they give up to the jets -- -- forms to our -- ridiculous. You make the move you bring in -- with his with -- then you caught -- over a million and half dollars and a third round. That's just -- -- I could not and I I was stunned when I heard. Well if you look at the big picture I'm thinking about this a case of the patriots at rivas that's that's a good signing but he's been in the division before so I'm not gonna sit here and -- He is with a better team -- -- would be better and announced with a team that beat the bills anyway so I mean how much different whatever but the patriots I would say got better. The jets sign Eric Decker and that's very good for them. He won't be as good as he was with with the Broncos -- -- -- -- that he will be as good as it was it just -- the same because -- be working with geno Smith will not be as good as he was he doesn't get paid manager -- of the football but he'll he'll be an upgrade -- -- receiver that they desperately needed after the jets got a little bit better with the -- their -- of the dolphins on April double left tackle. They re sign their Pro -- defensive linemen they had a safety at the dolphins kept Grimes is a very cornerback David let their Gerris Berkett awaited sign him. Stark signs signs on the defensive line eighty he's not as big an impact player but they allowed and they don't add. Chris Williams who's ranked. -- 74 out of 81 guard right Propofol it's ranked fairly they get -- global left tackle so all three teams in the division and the bills while I do like their moves. You know eighty defensive back who was a former pro bowler on special teams -- cross -- Now we know that you've got some core players for your special teams it's part of it yet they won what six they said that the magic number there's one I think. Keith river looks like a decent signing these guys that have played in the league Chris Williams started sixteen games last year he might not be good with the fact the continue to start. It's like a guy who's the pitcher who loses twenty games you've got at least. You've got to be somewhat good in off. To continue to play -- -- about the bills that would -- was so bad he lost his job and all this this current style they had at left guard. I don't think he's probably bought. You know -- hide -- that offensive line if you behind -- between Eric -- court -- right that's not nothing so. I don't like the -- moves but if you look at what the but the patriots have done with the jets of Donald dolphins have done. The bills need to make a swing. At number well but the but. And I think that's the plan and ended their free agent moves and we knew that I mean -- camps and value value value value if you're hearing the front office preach Republican value you're not expecting. A level free agents to be signed by the Buffalo Bills that's when you get you get Chris Williams you get Keith Rivers get Corey Graham again. I will say that's the -- Don't go on the Internet and read up on Chris Williams because there's really not much flattering about him out there. With the read about his career Chicago when he read about his career in Saint Louis. I read something this morning that he gave up -- gave up like five sacks eight quarterback pressures. In 900 snaps last year. The the numbers aren't good about Chris Williams rivers that -- about by the way he and rivers to first round guys who were going on their third team. So neither guy has lived up to what he is billing was when it they were taken in the first round of their respective drafts. So but but but I think what the bills are doing is they're looking edit it Williams is he's better than what they had. He's said to be not very good pass protection. But good enough as a run blocker and the bills needed to improve their run blocking on the offensive line. They say it you can pull the heat can pull he's pulling guard can handle that bills really couldn't do that with Colin -- Douglas Kirstie. So they're better in terms of what they need at left guard -- right you've got what you've got land -- -- doesn't kill him against interior pass structures. Keith Rivers is not going to be on the field and passing downs he's here I think. It's two year contract at five million dollars that's that's chicken feed by NFL standards he's -- because they need to linebacker can help stop the run. So you plug this guy in for a for a run -- maybe that two down player plays earlier. 40% of the snaps fine it's not the the the site -- not they are nowhere near. Well but it's just the bills -- plug in and stuff and at their value -- cheap guys that knock on for the top shelf guys again cheap guys the fielder spots. It's nothing gets excited but they're better left guard in the at a guy who can help stop the run linebacker to me like -- I think Graham as the best of the -- -- maybe you should be. Be excited. But it's hard -- get excited about Easter consider last year. Except for many Austin I was gonna make that analogy and Alan Branch an OK any loss right -- lost decidedly Latin. And he turns out to be a very good player for them. And Alan Branch and who else. Jerry Hughes right that your theory was the -- is garbage for garbage in the colts we will whenever we talk your knuckles like -- good luck guys. Jerry Hughes had more sacks last year that he did this entire group the -- -- here's our draft pick that hasn't and I lost you take care Jeff -- that hasn't panned out now you're you're no question about it. If you're if you're looking for something the -- Excited to strong optimist you're looking for a positive twisted it you can say that. The the the front office that last year brought in Jerry Hughes Alan Branch in Manny Lawson which were not big name guys. But they played well for the bills is the same front office that is telling you. Were happy with Chris Williams Keith Rivers and Cory -- so that's a fair point to bring their pro personnel -- And if it's run differently if there's a different person making decisions maybe they were just due to hit on a couple because they missed some times. But if it's the same thinking that got them Lawson and Hughes and branch then maybe these signings could be could be decent but all leads me to its. I just saw what she treated and it's it's interesting it's hard to get them the benefit of the doubt Jeremy just treated bills might. For the first time in awhile deserve benefit of the doubt when it comes to mid level moves loss and his were that great but it's so hard. Because and it's it isn't fair to Doug -- and and this group of people that we saddle them with fourteen years but it's extremely difficult. You know -- spread the still here Jim over door is still here Jeff -- is still the treasury it's extremely difficult to give the franchise the benefit of the doubt because. You know I think they've won out everybody's benefit of the doubt card a long long time ago. People on here than any other thing is Jeremy -- it you know what's hard is. You know we talk about this on on free agency signing days even NHL one in the summer. It's hard to sit there and go Corey Graham Chris Williams Keith Rivers and feel good about it on the same day went in the division. Perhaps the best quarterback in the game goes to New England. And perhaps the best receiver on the open market goes to the jets big name guys the people have heard about that they are aware of and you're gonna go -- we got these three guys. Are the patriots. Is. And it that's part of the frustration. Feels like an unseemly yeah -- like these other teams or get an -- talent and your going fur like being minus seat plus talent and that's at the bills did get their eight Tel two years ago before memorial so -- doesn't happen every year not every team gets a talent. During this this period the Redskins I saw. -- while Washington fans are upset that they haven't made -- big movies like -- remember how this usually goes for you right usually give these big moves that worked too well. And you brought up the drafted in the bills are anticipating getting a talent but the ninth pick in the draft getting someone to come in. Whatever position it is I you know I I still hope it's either a wide receiver -- and but I think they're looking at the draft as the spot to get BA talent. -- to be can't BO cannot be tackle. Joseph was -- we talk to -- is next mock draft they signing guard. Cannot be offensive line help this team. With the with the ninth pick app I mean just looking at play makers looking at their offense. Have to have somebody come in and make a difference this offense has actually can make the case -- play play makers if you include CJ Spiller or Fred Jackson. -- -- to have a job getting Spiller place to make. But I don't think I don't think -- right tackles gonna change as much as a six foot five wide receiver would. So I want the playmaker at number nine and all -- keep hammering all the way through until. May unless they make some sort of -- at -- -- Eric Decker which we didn't expect and why would they ever being on Eric Decker. Steve Smith why he could be out there that but at the after Steve Smith for a while but I'm not I'm not expecting them to get a wide receiver James Jones is still out there. Why Jacoby Jones is now off the mark you assign the -- with a great idea of Baltimore right I'm not expect them to go get a -- ready either -- address that in the draft and if it's a receiver I also as soon as I'm looking at. Who could it be. I think about his size -- sleet and he's the same size as Stevie Johnson Robert Woods I want someone. To be different I want a little bit more of a diversification of the wide receiver for when it comes to size and skill set. And this is the -- and send you want gains -- sleek. I mean they're not small but the Eagles have average size receivers were good at getting open with good speed. I'd like someone who is a match up nightmare always different. And conversations with Doug -- that we talked to him last week you know he said if our if the two guys we have on the border of the same overall score will go with the bigger guys they want big. So I want big too. And I think about the way this offenses has been put together and there's that that. They have -- it's like I'm contradicting myself ansari they have enough playmakers but they still -- -- playmaker and I mean quarterbacks obviously with -- even -- the last playmaker but that help him. And outside. The hashes planet which is a big target me that could be the tight and if they decide to go that way. But it's why continue to land on Mike Evans and looking at free agency the way they felt the bills dolphins jets patriots and all the rest of the AFC matters as well I'm I'm still gonna be stuck right there at big receiver. Well remember too I believe both Spiller and Fred Jackson are going into the final year of their contract. And I have no idea of CJ Spiller going to be your beyond this coming season. Easier if it when he hits free agency what do you do with him. Is he at least he's a playmaker he's an electric exciting player who we've now we announced that we spent last season going up next on on what's -- And has contracts coming up and here we we hear all these things about how. You know don't you never wanna give a big contractor running back they you can get a running back anywhere look at the market but -- all the running backs up their now that are going absolutely nowhere. Chris Johnson was the great running back few years ago now the -- trying to trade him. I'm wondering I know I'm off on a different topic here. But you when you brought up play makers -- made me think there's another reason why you better get a play maker this year because -- what's gonna happen Fred Jackson's older world getting older and that you know what I mean with Fred. Thirty plus year old running back and don't if she just wants a big contract. -- -- So we could be gone and another not under bill should give it to on what it's back and that's supposed to do that so that's why I think you know get that wide receiver that -- and -- that dynamic. Offensive weapon to help out EJ Manuel is important now and might even be more important when they changeover their running backs in another year the -- come. Or station isn't in the interest in one what would you do if you -- -- in and what's at the bills through that if they approached him today for the contract. If you're Spiller which -- -- me are you. Rolling the dice the you're gonna have a big -- because he's. He's hit -- miss not necessarily because of his talent. But because of the way he's youth in the way that. They couldn't ever really find it good spotter good rhythm or something they could go to to use him. So this year plays out he could have thirteen 14100 yards or he could have 900 -- I don't think he will because in his role in this offense. I watch -- -- assigned because -- am I guarantee myself some money. Or. Are you banking on the idea that even if I don't have a big year enough teams enough GMs have seen what I can do and I'll be signed on what I can do. I don't know honestly I'm I'm torn. I think it's a big gamble for Spiller not to sign a contract because I don't know what the market's gonna -- But if I'm Spiller. At the end of the day -- I would probably take my chances thinking. The bills might still want me back I can always fall back to a bills contract but I would still take my chances see what's out of the market and all that there's a team out there that says this guy's electric. And -- he can thrive. With our program -- our quarterback in a role in our office but boy. That is that's a gamble -- If -- did I -- you gonna back up and go if you're the bills you even get him come next I'm not sure you do that right and that's that's I'm saying this is a really. I can't get I know we talk so much about now. I can't get Spiller out of my head because I don't think the bills and offered him a big contract and I don't think they should offer him a big contract. So if if this guy's not in the plans beyond 2014 that's got to affect -- -- thinking now. And what are you gonna draft a running back at some point. Or you really got to make sure you bolster your receiving your -- and -- because you've got to make things better for EJ Manuel because you're not sure it's electric players of the year you -- I don't get way ahead of things. But I don't know yet you mentioned Spiller and make me think about the future with him is I don't think he's long for the -- world. I think he's gone after the season -- So -- -- and how that affects how that affects this year's draft and what they'll do I don't know but I it has to come into their thinking. They have to wonder if it'll affect the way that they use him. Are -- starting to plan for the future without him that he. -- drive up his value is best they can't now that what we're gonna try to win game so I'm not saying that they're gonna tailor their offense knowing that it's Spiller is last season leading date. Drive up this guy and try and trade him. No by the deadline in October and now got form what's the franchise taken running backs it's got to be huge right because running backs get huge stupid contracts that are never worth it. So my guess is the franchise tag value on running backs would would not. Be worth it -- Chris Johnson as you just mentioned. They're trying to trade him in and why wouldn't it. Franchise tag number of mine a million. And you going to him on Wikipedia a point to okay that's. As of a year -- not happening. No I don't think so either. A point it's probably up to nine tests it. Yeah no way Don -- looks like nine point 54 million dollars absolutely not happening. I'm so I'm just trying to find actual number of injury of this right yeah and and why were. I get now these I don't think he's long for the world so they'll make sure you bolster the offense and other ways that you have to find. If not one. They hoot and it today signed Fred Jackson again maybe they do maybe it's a 12 year deal really short term deal. But you're gonna find another running back to share this with with Fred. And the period RK 2014 -- these are projections but whatever it's gotta be close enough running back was projected to be. Little over nine million dollars. And be looking at 25 in anyway right innocently and this -- tag right -- would be more than. It's just Trace amounts another player the Jersey leaving town probably yeah. Start of the jurors bird bodies article yet words and Huntsville route and and I wanted to get your thoughts on that too because. One of the things I'm thinking about 8030550. -- -- to want to monopolize the conversation 8030550. Am assuming automated through the blizzards they. 888552. At 53 players signed yesterday. Linebacker Keith Rivers cornerback Corey Graham. Often the one that looks to be left guard Chris Williams that she was told is going to be a play left guard here he's played tackle and guard. What do you think about the three sanction yesterday and give us your thoughts on Decker to the jets released at that. To me. That's the other part of free agency yesterday for me. You look at the guys they broadening and you can go. OK but you know. If you add the three of them together to me it still doesn't equal it's not greater then. The impact the loss of -- -- and I'm trying not to dwell on it I know people get you know got to move on does -- you can do about it he's gone he's not coming back. The job for the bills got to figure out who's the safety and go forward and do whatever they have to do. But to me destroyer free agency at this point and I don't think it'll change because I'm not expect the bills to make some mammoth move in free agency. The story in free agency is not who they brought in yesterday is not -- they re -- carpenter good for them. It even if they -- -- Chandler that would make you happy the story for me through free agency will always be they lost bird and to me that's a bigger than the loss of -- hurt this team more than bringing and for two former first round picks who went belly up in two spots and a local kid who's looked good with Baltimore so. I just can't get past that story the -- story to me is -- it was a it was a really except that. 8030550. -- it's come up on -- -- Joseph this guy will join has been a busy guy this week if you go to our website Joe's got stories up on. All the bills and is the signing of Chris Williams signing of course Graham. The signing of Keith Rivers and Joe's got details on the he and partner contract as well. That solid WGR 550 dot com he'll join us at eight. Paul Hamilton will join us at nine I don't think Paul was part of the -- -- which is watching the bags in Paul join us we get ready for the sabres and the canes tonight. And Dave -- colder later this morning at 930 Niagara hockey coach -- and can teaches both getting ready for a quarterfinal action in their conference playoffs this weekend. Dave -- join us tomorrow Dave -- did today. And we wanna hear from you 8030550. I would think the bill signings yesterday. Linebacker left -- Quarterback slash special teams guy you give us your thoughts on that Revis to the pats Decker to the jets share your opinion at 8030550. A double. I can come out spread with -- four receivers. And -- All the way back to that what they want. Corey -- -- steps right there is now a member of the little. Western New York native I schools are. Former bear former -- and owner of the super bull ring like signing the most out of the three he could compete for starting spot nosed account and Goodyear last year but. There we always talk about you know competition competition -- here's a guy who can compete with him. Is certainly have quarterback depth which you needed because what they had a whole bunch injuries last year and they were -- and cornerback. So he could compete for starting spot not at -- in the sub packages some now. Any should help special teams they need a lot of help on special teams like that signing of the of the three together to like him most because he's from -- doesn't -- No I -- golf that no no honestly the other day I was looking at the list of freeagent. And that again it's not a name. Commodity been thinking quarterbacking court grab a nut job I thought. Court grammys had good cornerback who can help you defensively. And he has skills on special to beat the music was made pro bowlers especially does a lot of which they desperately need here special teams helped sell. And it's not a huge contract is not a -- money. Think it's a little bit -- Mckelvin Macon. Shorter term. So yes -- why it has nothing to do it I'm not big on that let's get guys that are from here whether it's the sabres the bills really doesn't matter to me whether the guy played high school basketball school footballer. Or college football and stays here I think Corey Graham is a good pick up because of what he can bring to defense and special teams I think he can help more. And rivers and Chris Williams even though Williams could be on the field more snaps and then. Corey Graham will be. 8030 but you can join us Howard Jeremy Matthew where were back together and we'll take your calls. Here in just the second -- -- Quickly on -- much is because we'll get the sound from Taylor Hall but I saw a link over the weekend that in the Oilers are terrible we all know this they've drafted high and had young kids. And one thing that sabres are doing differently than the Oilers is keeping their kids in the minors whether it's mark peasant who should be here but he's not. And Bristol line is in Rochester exit door obviously juniors which means these kids are not part of this. Just. Eight train of loser bill Larson still down there with -- injuries that it brings certain guys up that they could have so Taylor Hall said something about what it's like to be the young kid. To play in in this environment in buffalo as opposed to being on juniors. You know a lot of success through junior memorial cups and the key reason to hit the league. First overall pick off -- -- of success in junior and you haven't had much of a morsel of it in the NHL. Do you miss it do you feel that competitive winning -- of you getting a little bit blunted. The it's it's been so long I almost forgot what it's what it's like Dion Tina. Demands a win every night and and it expects that. And enforcement we haven't been -- -- we just. Every year seems to be. A year where we're finishing out this season. Talk from the conference or thirteenth or whatever and -- thoughts. They don't. That the sabres won't have that problem right there you guys -- that's where they're still down yeah. That's up I thought it there's a little -- you don't like household beacon of light in this. The sabres are doing that so what will be different maybe that. The bills on the other hand. And other players are used to six and ten and I. I liked I liked him so far and really want that ninth pick. The V Mike Evans -- 305 -- -- it has 88550. To 550 will start at Mike in buffalo Mike you're on WG -- right ahead. Morning guys Oreo. The sport every situation that -- Sure what the market would be a player like yet and luckily you know I -- He's an exciting player in -- -- but he not exploiting and enough. Yeah I'm. I guess my problem with government uses her ability and you know how much of a weapon really. I mean you look at what Nate Thurmond on the street and -- it was great player. It was on the field -- reply. Gave him a lot of opportunities to be. A defense that's never going -- we're gonna get a -- -- they put stroller out there it's pretty good. You know pretty good idea that he's going to be involved in one way and I'm not sure that really got beat up and weapons that you -- on earth. Well I would. In my mind. You expendable. You're not herbal anti that you go to an expendable. As well. Are all under ability standards in its first four seasons Thurman Thomas missed two games CJ Spiller has missed three. So I mean I don't know how CJ Spiller is not durable he's he's played hurt a lot he's at least that sometimes okay were playing hurt the athletes these he's been he's been in games repression and played injured yet this year is -- -- -- a high ankle -- this -- T shirts on the offensive coordinator. And it's on a quarterback you know like he was loaded up against Egypt. They didn't use bill the way that -- Houston it's one thing that -- much -- you know we talked about -- and we criticized what Gailey didn't and he made it Fred Sturm. Part of that part of the maddening thing about -- saying Fred Stearns like chant. -- any idea how good you are using CJ Spiller you develop you review our yard leadership Spiller became. This guy. And that's why because people were yelling -- back given the ball more in back to back seasons yards per carry of six. Right after five point two starts last season is four point six in passing game to you from five point two to six point L in yards per carry his yards per reception were ten point seven. And got caught in half this year. I you know he had the ankle injury he had issues but. The offensive coordinator if there if there's one. You know the -- at least we used to defend Hackett -- rookie quarterback mark and that Lewis and chipped it to the best he could. Considering what's happening he's a rookie coordinator give him all the time and I subscribed that. Spiller went -- in training camp -- -- we're gonna run until it Fuchs. He had 201 carries this year which is six fewer than the year before. And I did they run -- -- Fuchs not really. That they get a lot of receptions. His catches last year we were weighed down -- yards per catch was with regards to catch weight out and his catches were down point 5% 4333 roughly -- If you've got to find a way and that's what. Hopefully Nathaniel packets off season is all about how to develop CJ Spiller back with a weapon that he was with Chan -- split out wide. That war. He played right what you played receiver he emotion out of the backfield and they would get a match -- whirl wind record matched up against him and you just -- watching the game ticket he comes that this is the matchup that they want you play the whole game for this and it's -- couldn't throw or whatever when. And pressure bringing up so many great moments here but he seriously this number I know it's it's exactly what what I was hoping would happen with a new quarterback and in the new coordinator and neither one of those things happen I needed Spiller to be exactly the same. Instead his production dropped. A lot of it has to go to tell you what I have a question for you about -- but I wanna get a -- and I'm gonna bring it up in the next segment because it it it pertains to Spiller and his future. But quickly before get the next caller. For me for Spiller it's not about your ability and the points the the last the caller brought up for me it's very simple. Its gates to shelf life for running back it gets to running backs are a dime a dozen philosophy in the NFL and would you want to give out a big contract I don't know what kind of money spill is going to be looking for bought. Does it make sense to to give out. -- contract like that to a running back it doesn't seem. You know more teams are getting burned by giving out big contracts to running backs. I don't think that's a guy you wanna say 456 years or whatever is looking for. 45 million dollars a year it just doesn't seem to make sense from a football standpoint a business standpoint. Given a contract like that to our running back. When you can just -- these guys wherever just you know pulled off of trees. And Cady in Florida you're on WG are right ahead. Morning. Diego and I'm really glad it. I like on signing -- into resigning satellite. He delivered -- that it knock her so he's gonna. Dealt with this out in the run. -- -- -- -- -- Graham are you gonna help on the defense. You know defense and cornerback and also -- -- and William. Where Corey on that left side. That can be a lot of people here are so. Column are I'm unlike designing their. In it. I GM. You know -- I really -- -- -- thanks Rick mark off. Yeah -- elected I really like to me would be too strong. Okay and that's it. I think I'll go work. Jeremy is I think you give them the benefit of the doubt because. Lawson branch use those moves worked out last year but you're like you're gonna look at Chris Williams since. Everything -- read about -- relief that not just pro football focus I'm I'm I'm -- last night I'm online read what they wrote about him after he left Chicago. And read about him in Saint Louis where they said they wanted to back but it wasn't a priority. If he graded out really badly in Saint Louis degraded out badly in Chicago he was in -- in Chicago granted they moved the ball over the line and they kind of screwed him over a little bit. But it. Chris Williams is better than what they had that's all I can say about that and it's not really a great compliment of Chris Williams to say you're better than Doug -- -- column -- But I think they're better at left guard hopefully he helps the running game. Because he's a good run blocker. And he gives them some things that they couldn't do -- bigger -- brown like Graham said that. Rivers to meet again same thing like Williams first round pick went belly up in Cincinnati. Was injured couldn't stay healthy he doesn't make plays Jeremy mentioned his his totals to sex is interceptions. Forced fumbles. Negligible he he's he's just -- guy on the field. If you can help the the run defense set the edge of good run stopping linebacker outside. Okay fine and it's only to your contract five million dollars at the big commitment so they're they're okay. -- what they did yesterday nothing great but -- -- -- and that's what -- can -- But so he's not Eddie Robinson. Null and now I know all I his name. If you'd bring up all these great well -- from the past today he's fresh in my mind because couple weeks ago we did that. The conversation about the bills coloring book yeah the 25 worst moments someone wrote in you forgot Eddie Robinson against Chad Pennington. Right. Robinson got steel still try to pick up -- happened from that play. He was on the team I know it. And those those dark days it'll 30515 to join us 888552.

Keith Rivers and Corey Graham wanna get your opinions always a lot of those guys come to an end the other division news throughout Revis is now patriot. Eric Decker is now a member of the New York Jets could move for both -- I've got great instant trivia. I mean we've we've kinda haven't really done -- -- and I've treated us great bills related. Not European soccer -- to know now I've got stories for a very good let's go to let James in Florida thanks holding on -- on WGR. Hey good morning and I think Internet if they go along with England and the way to use or what impact. In MVP candidate I mean it it straight the -- parent's role. And it's great -- those commitments eat that go like -- believe -- one year and -- Am -- more screamed at him I mean there really -- out there and I just like don't give them an opportunity and they're not he doesn't break a big. L twenty yard run he'd already copper at a game right away if you think he has won on -- object -- -- at the common. I don't think that the guys you know I'm not speed. And think you need more opportunity. Yeah I think the passing game is where it was really gathering last year like he used in a number of different ways more more versatility. And just the kind of guy you want the ball in his hands however you get it to them. Handed to him throw it to -- maybe that's. The way you do that is you get the big wide receiver someone has to be double team mills' evidence to be double team except they'll roll coverage is beside him -- he was in the slot so wasn't as much. Of course in the woods -- great career outside receivers though those two aren't really. He urged threats were -- double covered but wind although I don't even if he makes morbid place yeah I would have if -- is necessarily recovered to all of your safety of your tour. That there's Chandler Chandler's the same like. Teams are worrying about that the -- that -- worry most about it is Spiller and when the quarterback is in a real threat to. It should -- He -- key on him I think the way to the bills defended. And I didn't look at it enough of this I probably should look -- -- over the course of the season but the bills defended the chiefs. They locked on to Jamaal Charles Kiko Alonso your job don't for a lot of games. Watch him any shot him down. Yeltsin -- to -- and all -- seven for 71 you know it's a big day. It have to worry too much about that that that she's passing game and they locked up Jamaal Charles has one of the best in the league so if there are other threats -- you can do that. And I think the criticism is fair but it's -- I don't find it good enough way to get to use -- but is finally bring up like -- and his future and what's what's gonna happen with him in the -- reference Sproles who right now is about to be traded or cut by the world saints. As opposed -- of the contract keep them around extending his contract they're trying to get rid of them. Let's go to -- in the falter on WG -- right ahead. I -- arm -- free agency began I was hopeful that we might pick up near Decker and out what happens is. We need your got -- -- and we didn't sign previously maybe we could've done that and the actual question is does this say something about. Incompetent again in the front office I wonder if you would make my comment I'm on the. Front off the pilot but why would they be incompetent. -- because I think -- record -- -- we shouldn't. It hadn't dropped the ball I think having common -- is like one another guys signed I don't think they should had any interest in Decker and I don't think Darrelle Revis had any interest in the bills. Not revisit that there would there's no way they're gonna give Darrelle Revis twelve million dollars when that would what he's hearing a power play here and whenever we forget. And they feel -- mean look he's great quarterback and try to take in England but they have they have. Enough they can win with the quarterback and -- can type twelve million dollars and when -- for Revis. And Decker I just only go to make sense to give a big big receiver Contra doubt they're gonna get a guy. Hang on they should get a guy. On offense a target on offense with their first pick in the draft can't say they're going to get -- because I don't know who's going to take. But they should get that guy I don't think they're gonna it was not a very good receiver market I don't think it would -- made sense to spend a ton of money. When they needed to get left guard perhaps still -- right tackle and linebacker and at quarterback -- maybe a safety re sign the kicker. There's no way they're gonna shell out big money for receiver when you also have that ninth pick in the draft in a year when they're saying receiving class is incredibly.
