Hey Star Lotulelei, what did you think of the Bills winning in the Playoffs?

Recommended Posts

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!

Butler is a find.

What are the chances that he comes back next year fat and out of shape after having a year off?

They can draft someone who can fill his role

He's done he'll retire.

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.

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.

That does not sound correct.

This. And that’s why I trust Beane finding defensive gems in free agency. Look at Poyer and Hyde.

Anyone who is foolish enough to not be a Buffalo Bills fan can go f*ck themselves with a wooden shovel handle.

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.

What how? Players don't get paid if they don't play. Unless injured

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.

He will probably use our 1st round pick to replace him if he doesn't come back...

Wait, is that Kyle? Retirement has been brutal to him.  OH and if that makes you angry, have a sense of humor, I loved Kyle Williams, hard worker, total team player, locker room leader, and great family man. . . .

The Bills reworked Star's contract in February, guaranteeing his contract for the year but saving us a little towards the cap.

It looked like a good idea when we did it but then Covid hit and he opted to not play, sliding is guaranteed year to 2021.
