    Buffalo Bills

    Again, the Bills don't have any money to sign anyone.

    They're own free agents are going to cost them $20+ mil in new salary alone if they want to resign them...

    Can't see us splashing the cash this year but I want to see what they do with Kelsay and McGee. Might be time to move on.

    Furthermore, other than Brees, I can not think of the last FA QB to swtich teams and go on to win a SB.

    Aside from that, Buffalo should seriously target a WR or a SS in FA. I do not know what the market offers in those positions but I would even be willing to give up a few picks to get a stud playmaker at the WR position.

    PLEAE STOP TALKING ABOUT ARM STRENGTH AROUND HERE. Tom Brady does not have the strongest arm and the guy plays in similar climates as Buffalo.
    Don't have the numbers in front of me, but I believe his bonus kicks in after this season, so we could still part ways with him with little cap damage done. Of course, we won't, but we could...
    I am not a number, I am a free robot.

    Of that list I'd keep Choice, McIntyre, Jones, Nelson, Brown, Levitre, Urbik, Rinehart, Moore, Byrd and McKelvin. I'd let Jackson, Thigpen, Douglas, Martin, Dickerson, Johnson, Merriman and Scott walk. I'd cut McGee, Kelsay, Smith outright.

    Take a look you may be surprised to see we can get every position of need filled with quality starters. I didnt read what positions you wanted to get because it doesnt really matter to me because I already know what positions and which players will fill those positions best to make this a playoff team.

    (Get it done OBD sign Chad Johnson to min.)

    1. Dwayne Bowe, WR, Chiefs
    2. Quentin Jammer, CB, Chargers
    3. Anthony Spencer, SLB, Cowboys

    The Chargers are not going to get rid of Rivers without having anybody to replace him with.

    Vick could be in play

    Keep Merriman leader and he seems to be coming around as a backup

    The Bills are 7.4 million under the cap now.
    We gain 5 million we were still paying Maybin, and I feel Kelsay is gone, which is another 3.75 million.
    Merriman is not signed for next year. I think they should resign him, which could cost up to 5 million (4 million this year)
    We gain 2.4 million that we don't have tagged to Evans.
    Moorman gone is 1.4 million
    I say drop McIntyre, for another .9 million

    As of right now, with no FA's resigned, we're at 66.7 Million towards next year
    The 2013 Cap is projected to remain about the same as this year, just over 120 million.

    I think we're looking pretty good, actually

    Make a short list of your favorites and tell why they would be a good for for the Bills.
    QB: Nope (draft a developmental prospect) we are too close to
    WR: Greg jennings is the best fit in this timing offense and can play slot or "Z". I 'd draft Keenan Allen in the 1st.
    LB: Daryl Smith worth a shot to see if he can comeback from injury. Vet playmaking OLB.
    CB: Re-sign McKelvin gives time to see how youngsters develop
    S: Re-sign Byrd I like the rotation with Searcy & Wilson. Aaron Williams may end up here as a FS and I'd like t idea.
    C (backup): Urbik
    RT: Don't need one

    HB/TE (playmaker/thumper): Delanie Walker he can be a tumper as a run blocker, athletic enough to keep LB'ers honest in the passing game as a check down. This will help open up the middle for Jennings,Stevie, Chandler, Nelson in the passing game. This will also keep LB at a decent depth for a straight ahead running attack by CJ & Freddie.

    NEED: A QB

    NEED TO UPGRADE or ADD TO: WR, LB and Corner

    ROUND OUT THE SQUAD:
    Another QB
    2014 Mock Draft

    Trade down

    After trading back --> CB Kyle Fuller
    2a) LB Ryan Shazier__ 2b) TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins
    3) QB Zach Mettenberger
    4) RB Lache Seastrunk - Baylor
    5) DE Taylor Hart - Oregon
    6) * WR Mike Williams *
    7) S Jestin Love, Central Arkansas

    Keep drafting QBs. Fill the pipeline.

    Wow, what a terrible trade.

    A first and a second for roughly 24 games. Brutal
