Im liking the way this team is heading its trimming pieces that should have been trimmed a couple years ago.

Kelsay coming off the books is great...his contract was too expensive and he's not a good fit if they use some 3-4 looks.

But instead of retiring, if the Bills cut him and he caught on elsewhere I'd root for him. He's been a good trooper...not his fault the team overpayed him when he signed his last contract.

True, though here he made his own decisions. I'm still not big on Barnett getting the hook.

Like GAG said...I could root for Kelsay had he decided to continue elsewjere and asked for a release but to be honest I think he made the right call. He looked old and slow the last couple years.

Tell me about it. They are also pursuing Revis HARD. That would put them over the top, though I would HATE for Whitner to win a Super Bowl

As for the draft, I hope this is how it turns out in terms of what positions we draft

Round 1 - QB
Round 2 - WR
Round 3 - LB
Round 4 - CB
Round 5 - LB
Round 6 - OG

As for specific players, I'd be ecstatic with Geno Smith, DeAndre Hopkins and Bruce Taylor as our QB-WR-LB top 3 picks. All 3 should be very good NFL players.I also would jump on Shamarko Thomas or Justin Pugh if either of them are available in the 4th. Thomas will be a stud safety, the kid is a devastating hitter. Think Roy Williams in terms of physicality but way faster and way better in coverage.

Oh they will. The entire reason on keeping T. Jackson was to have two vets for under 8 million.... if Fitz refuses ( which I doubt ) he'll be cut.

You're spot on. My gut feeling is that he will restructure because he's said in the past that he knows he won't get another shot as a franchise QB. It's going to be interesting if Geno Smith drops to us because it's now become a possibility with Smith. I've become a fan of Geno after watching more game tape. He played in some tough weather at WVU and seems to be able to make plays on the fly. May be ideal if he takes a year on the bench behind a motivated Fitz. I guess that's what I'm rooting for currently...

Yeah, this is probably his last chance to start for an NFL team but how much would we owe him if we cut him? (I'm actually not sure). He could just take that money and run and go somewhere (that's not in Buffalo) as a well paid backup, who probably wouldn't have to do much else except keep the starters fresh in practice. I guess that might be pretty far fetched since we're talking about a pro athlete but I wouldn't be too shocked

Geno had a horrid 2nd half in a conference all about offense and no defense. He went from Heisman front runner to not even in the race at all.

The guy had 3 standout years at WVU, one half of one year is a fairly small sample size to judge him on...

The guessing work is gone. You knew it was one or the other. I hope they can get both long term deals but I have doubts to be honest. I fear Levitre is a goner now.

Yeah I think Levitre is gone too. Looks like we need to draft an OL now in the first 4 rounds.

I think you can place a franchise tag on someone twice in a row so Byrd will be here atleast until the end of the 2014 season, hopefully longer if he signs a long term extension.

Flacco is off the market. Signed a 6 year, gazillion dollar contract that will make him the highest paid player in NFL history.

Yeah, would be great to have 3 good WR's and nobody to throw to them.

Until...Aaron Rodgers comes to contract time. This is just a start of a neverending cycle

They really need to sign Levitre. A bad team like the Bills can't afford to let their strength (offensive line) walk away for nothing. Losing Andy would be a huge loss. I'd much rather have him than Byrd.
