  1. If I was Brian Daboll, I don't think I would accept an offer from the Eagles. I know, I know, there are only 32 Head Coaching positions....but taking the wrong one can derail your career. The Eagles are dysfunctional up top, have a crap culture and a super expensive QB. They probably need a 3 year rebuild IF they have a great GM and they duct tape the owner in the closet. Otherwise the Eagles might never get turned around.
  2. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/13/moderna-ceo-says-the-world-will-have-to-live-with-the-coronavirus-forever.html Moderna CEO says the world will have to live with Covid 'forever'
  3. I remember those days...I think they had players stretch twice a year. Once in OTAs, and once in Training Camp. Then they were on IR the rest of the year and sat in the Hot Tubs rehabbing.
  4. Best player. No matter the position, except Tight End. 1st round tight ends have a low hit rate.. We need star players from the 1st round. If possible. Cornerback is not a huge need, but if we could get another Tre' White, that would be a successful 1st round pick. Stud OLinemen would be great.
  5. Because of the horrible 2021 contract and Cap Hit, it is best for the Bills for Star to play....counts $7.6 million against the Cap, and gives us some quality snaps. It only has to be 35-40% of the snaps, as long as it is quality play.
  6. BTW that is DeVonta FREEMAN, not DeVonta Smith LOL Freeman is one of the only true Free Agent RBs out there, so with Zack Moss out, it only makes sense to do your due diligence on RBs. Just in case. Especially if out of no where one of your RBs is a Covid close exposure and ruled out for Saturday. Go Bills.
  7. I have never wanted to draft a Running Back early in the draft. When we drafted Beast Mode in the 1st round I wasn't thrilled. But looking at our team now...a stud running back would round this offense out into a juggernaut. PS We passed on JK Dobbins to draft AJ Espensa in the 2nd round last year. Hmmm.
  8. Doesn't matter if he has to pay back some of the signing bonus....I think you still are hit with a DEAD CAP of $11.8 million on your books. This is to prevent teams from doing "creative" contracts to get around the cap. DEAD CAP is not about cash.
  9. He would get paid zero by the Bills in 2021 if he doesn't play....but the Dead Cap Hit from his contract will still hit the Bills books, reducing the Bills Available Salary Cap by $11.8 million. Yes, it sucks...it is how they amortize things like signing bonuses. The best for the Bills is for Star to play in 2021, and play well.
  10. Doesn't sound correct, but the theory behind it is a team signing a player to a 3 year deal, with a big signing bonus, with a wink and a nod that the player will be retiring in 2 years. That 3rd year Dead Cap doesn't just go away. PS The Cap rules are murky so I could have pieces of this wrong.
  11. Again, if Star does not play in 2021 for the Buffalo BIlls, whether due to retirement or release, we are whacked with a $11.8 million Dead Cap Hit. The Bills are tight on Cap in 2021 already. Ideally Star comes back, plays decent...maybe 35-40% of the snaps....and we spend a draft pick on a DE with pass rush skills.
  12. If he retires, we are kindaof screwed. The way NFL contracts work is that we would be hit with a Dead Cap hit of $11,800,000. We can't afford that.
  13. I have been unable to verify which NFL season the Bills had with the lowest # of players on Injured Reserve, but 2020 has to be right up there. Current IR: Cody Ford, OL Isaiah Hodges, WR* Cam Lewis, CB Del'Shawn Phillips, LB *And it is possible Hodges might have been stashed there. There have been seasons where the Bills had 20 players on IR by the time we got to week 16. GREAT JOB Strength and Conditioning coaches!! Go Bills.
  14. I believe the way contracts work for players that opted out of the season, is that the contract is just "pushed". Therefore, in 2021, Star is under contract and will play for the Bills. His deadcap if cut would be $11,800,000 https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/buffalo-bills/star-lotulelei-12294/ As an active player Star's CapHit will be $7.6 million in 2021 which is not outrageous for a rotational Nose/DT. For example, Vernon Butler will be paid $7.4 million in 2021 and Quinton Jefferson $8 million. FYI The Bills seemed to be missing Star early in the season, but as the season rolled on Zimmer, Butler, Oliver, Quinton Jefferson seemed to not miss him too much. Go Bills!
