What They’re Saying About the Eagles

USATSI_7631382_168380503_lowres

Here’s a roundup of what the national media are saying about the Eagles this week.

Mike Tanier of Sports On Earth takes Howie Roseman’s job for a moment and outlines what the Birds should do this offseason:

With their receiver situation settled, the Eagles can invest money and cap space on an instant-impact veteran. And why not weaken a division foe in the process? Brian Orakpo would be a terrifying addition to Bill Davis’ scheme: a pure 3-4 outside rusher to join Connor Barwin and Trent Cole in a versatile linebacker rotation. Imagine all three of them on the field on a third-and-10 situation: instant Romo blooper reel!

Connor Barwin wrote a terrific piece for The MMQB about locker-room culture in the NFL:

What we end up with in the NFL is a room full of 65 of the most athletic, driven, and—let’s face it—reckless men in the country. Not many sane, rational individuals would voluntarily choose to play a game that threatens to take years off your life, possibly lead to CTE, and leave your joints feeling like rusty bicycle chains. What you do have, however, is one of the most diverse melting pots in the world. “Parks and Rec” has nothing on the character ensemble I work with every day. Cowboys from Texas locker next to rappers from L.A., guys blasting “Yeezus” on the stereo across from guys talking about Jesus with the chaplain, married guys with three kids next to married guys with three girlfriends.

Evan Silva of Rotoworld has the Eagles going with Minnesota defensive lineman Ra’Shede Hageman in the first round:

An edge-setting five technique at 6-foot-6 and 310 pounds with nearly 34-inch arms, Hageman fits the Eagles’ profile with a prototypical build. Snap-to-snap consistency concerns may keep Hageman out of the top-20 selections, but he would add high-ceiling talent to an Eagles defensive front seven that should be the cream of the crop in the NFC East this season. After locking up Riley Cooper, Jason Kelce, Jeremy Maclin, and Jason Peters, look for the Eagles to attack defense in the draft.

Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com has the Eagles taking Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard at No. 22:

Dennard had an average combine workout, but he’s very consistent on tape.

Marc Sessler of NFL.com sees the Eagles as a potential surprise team in free agency:

With the “Dream Team” debacle deep in the rearview mirror, general manager Howie Roseman might be willing to pull the trigger to help Chip Kelly add more Kelly-esque athletes. More than $20 million under the cap, Philly remains one of the NFL’s more intriguing outposts from a team-building perspective.

Chris Burke of SI.com has the Eagles taking Louisville safety Calvin Pryor in the first round:

I realize “debaclefest” is not a word, but the Eagles’ current situation at safety is a debaclefest. They may get the expected rookie-year-to-Year-2 bump from Earl Wolff, but the need is there for another playmaker. Say hello to Pryor, whose smash-mouth style would make him an instant favorite in Philadelphia.

Greg A. Bedard of The MMQB thinks Malcolm Jenkins would make sense for the Eagles:

Hasn’t quite lived up to being the 14th overall pick in 2009. He’s been a solid, versatile player but hasn’t stood out in any facet of the game. Potential is still there. Best fit: Eagles. They have to get more dynamic in the back end.

ESPN analyst Louis Riddick with a couple interesting notes on Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley:

  • MediaMike

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    • Adam

      I wouldn’t balk at what Riddick has to say, especially when it comes to the Eagles, considering me was Direct of Pro Personnel here for 3 years. He knows Deuce and has definitely has some eyes and ears in the organization. If he says it, it carries weight.

      • MediaMike

        I’m not balking at the report, just any idiots stupid enough to hire Staley as an OC.

        • Maggie

          Riddick didn’t say OC exactly. He kind of just said Staley maybe has a bright future in coaching, as well as Richard

      • GEAGLE

        Riddick also stood by the Dion Jordan report, that made me feel much better then when LaConfora reported it lol

    • Tom w

      Seriously. He has helped develop three Rbs and tucker under two head coaches ….

    • RIP illa

      Wow MM…wish risqué never got rid of the down vote.

  • MediaMike

    Orakpo should be interesting. 12+ sack guy who can also play the run or Kearse signing all over again; we’ll see.

    • Tom w

      Never happen w cole and Barwin under wraps for another year … Plus raiders or Vikings or browns gonna throw a shitton of money at him and price him out. Colts could too.

      • Token

        Pass rusher is 1 or 2 on their needs list. Having Cole under contract means nothing. They can cut him this year or next. Dead money is about the same either way.

  • Mr. Wu

    That C Barwin article is a great read

    • usmcnole

      Super intelligent dude

    • dislikedisqus

      But who’s the married guy with three girlfriends?

  • Sum

    Trade Kendrick’s for Jordan, sign Malcolm Jenkins, possibly Dansby. And take BPA, or even move up for a guy you truly covet.

    • eaglesfanqc

      Jordan is an OLB not an ILB… We still need Kendricks

      • Sum

        You sign an ILB (Dansby). Kendricks is more of a 4-3 OLB. He’s a playmaker but we need more size.

        • James Hathaway

          Not sure where this Kendricks hate is coming from… He was flashing extreme potential at the end of the year.

          A package with orakpo, barwin, cole, Kendricks, and curry would be pretty unreal on passing downs. That’s a ton of versatility on the field, and that’s what Davis wants. I’d prefer that we build through the draft though.

          • MediaMike

            The best option for a 3-4 ILB is an over 6-2 250+ sideline to sideline runner / thumper who can also blitz. We don’t have that guy, but Dansby is one.

            But I don’t see any merit in trading Kendricks at this point. I’d prefer to draft a dude to eventually take over from Meco.

          • GEAGLE

            Don’t worry after next season, no one will ever again think about trading Mykal

          • George

            I’d honestly rather have a kendricks type at ilb for this d than a younger meco type. I want my dl and olb’s to be huge, intimidating, and athletic, and my ilbs to be athletic cover guys who make smart tackles on the run

          • MediaMike

            I agree with the coverage skills, but I need enough height so guys don’t get balls thrown over their reach too often.

          • George

            I could live with kendricks and KVN as my ilb’s for the future. I think he should be a target of ouyrs. Smart, and could learn under meco and be his replacement

          • MediaMike

            Works for me.

          • GEAGLE

            Would love pairing KVN/Mykal, and KVN is polished enough to where he can rotate in subpackages and spell Meco as a rookie…actually, we want to be a versatile defense, because KVN can play as a rookie, and our DL already are used to playing in 4man lines, I would even throw an extra 4-3 look at QBs with Kendricks as the WIL, Meco manning the middle and KVN as the SAM…just something extra in our tool box to throw at QBs…and if we are fortunate to add Byrd, he would allow us to incorporate a Dime defense, which would be another extra scheme in our arsenal

    • Mr. Wu

      that’s like trading your hand for a foot

      • Johnny Domino

        I’d trade a hand for a foot if you threw in a thumb and a third rounder.

    • GEAGLE

      Kendricks is a boss we won’t be trading, and the bills have this ILB named Kiko, you may have heard of him lol

    • GreenScabs

      To even remotely consider trading Mychal Kendricks is an absurd notion! The kid flashed All-Pro potential last year! Sure he was inconsistent at times, and took some bad angles, but once he came to the realization that playing within the constructs of the scheme in lieu of personal statistics his impact was as important as any other defensive player on the field. During the last quarter of the season he seemed to have a real knack for being in the right place at the right time, coming up with our biggest defensive plays to help us win the division (i.e. 2 sacks and a forced fumble against Chicago, and of course the 12 tackles, forced fumble, & INT against Dallas for the division).

      I’m ALL for trading for Dion Jordan, he was the #1 prospect for us last year in my opinion. I think it would make more sense to trade pieces that no longer fit our scheme, but are still valuable pieces to a 4-3 team like Miami. This may devalue these players because trading partners know these guys don’t fit our scheme, but I think Howie is smart enough to know the value these guys hold to the teams who are interested in acquiring them. With that said, I think we should offer Miami Graham, Brown, & a 3rd for Jordan. And my walk away offer would be Graham & a 2nd, or Curry & a 2nd.

      • GEAGLE

        Not curry

      • James Hathaway

        That was before he started smashing Rhianna. It’s all downhill from here. Apparently whips and chains excite Mychal, too.

        • Maggie

          Huh?

          • James Hathaway

            Rhianna has a thing for Kendricks. Those are lyrics to one of her songs.

    • Nfl All Day

      Kendricks is a beast. Certainly undersized, but hell if he doesn’t make plans plays in the backfield. His shortcoming is in coverage, which is difficult to understand, considering his speed. But with 106 tackles, 4 sacks, 3 picks, and 4 Fumble Recoveries, dude is a weapon, and just starting to get it.

  • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

    Of the 3 prospects named in this article, Hageman is my fave. Very bearish on getting a DB in the 1st, Gilbert or Haha maybe if we trade back but just not feeling it at 22 (or earlier)

    • MediaMike

      Dennard, Dix, or Pryor at 22 would be ideal. Hageman is interesting, but I want to see how Kruger has grown in the off-season.

      • Tom w

        Pass on all three DBS …Dennard and Pryor don’t fit the measurables and didn’t impress at the combine and haha is overrated coming from bama. No need to reach

      • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

        pass on all 3, especially at 22. Pryor is a 2nd rd prospect at best with the benefit of a bad safety draft to inflate him. And IMO, the 3rd and 4th rd CBs are almost as talented as the earlier guys. Better value at WR, OLB, OL and DL

    • Tom w

      Very bearish. Only one we consider is Gilbert and he ain’t making it to 22. Safety is not bua or bpa at 22. Shede could be or Ebron or a wr Trade back and we won’t have to decide.

      • GEAGLE

        Yeah Gilbert is the only one I’d consider but there will never be a draft where the first corner back taken doesn’t come off the board til 22…unless we sign Byrd! I don’t really think we can afford to not consider Pryor, because I don’t know that there are enough good safeties in this draft to where if Buchanon doesn’t last til 54, you have plenty of other options..passing on him at 22 becomes risky…I almost wish we could trade down to the first 5 picks in round 2 and over draft Buchanon by like 10 spots just to secure him…I love Marcus Smith, but If someone steals him before 54, we still would have other options like Trent Murphy, attaboy, someone will last til 54, but if Buchanon doesn’t last! I don’t see many other exciting solutions. The only other safety I want plays for USC and I hate them, and 54 may be too high for bailey

        • Khalid Washington

          The other thing were not considering is that Green Bay has the 21st pick and their biggest need is also Safety.

  • Token

    Saw that the Skins havent offered Orakpo a deal yet. They have til what, Monday to tag him? Could get interesting. If he reaches FA he joins Byrd as the two difference makers on the market IMO.

    • MediaMike

      I HATE to say this out loud, but any chance the Cowboys cut Ware and bring in Orakpo?

      • Token

        I dont think they are in a position to pay anyone let alone Orakpo. But Im not positive.

        • GEAGLE

          No you are right..they pretty much admitted they can’t sign free agents, which to them is a punishment worse then death lol

          • Alistair Middlemiss

            Don’t doubt Jerry’s ability to do stupid things, 6 year 60 million deal with a guaranteed 20mil roster bonus next year and a 10mil signing bonus would get under their cap this year and would ensure they are still in cap hell for many years to come.

      • George

        Even if they cut ware, they are still $7m over, so i’d say not

  • Eagles4Life

    Reports on the Bills beat that Jairus Byrd is not getting the tag and it not near agreement on a new deal…GET ON THE PHONE, HOWIE.

    • MediaMike

      Better get there before the Skins do. 6 years / $60 million. $30 mil signing bonus.

      • GEAGLE

        Not sure about that.lthey were interested in Mike Mitchell..if they were ok with signing Byrd I figure those idiots would be looking at Whitner instead of Mitchell…

        They are obsessed with Aqib Talib! and have so many holes to fill! safety? London Fletcher replacement, Orakpo or his replacement, WR, OL. DL…I hope they do sign a 60mil player because they won’t be able to fill the other 20 holes…
        ..
        Either way We will have to deal with the big money the raiders throw at him

        • DharmaBum

          The best thing about Byrd not getting tagged, are the reports that Mike Pettine wants him. That would preclude the Browns from tagging Ward, if they really wanted to try and make a play for Byrd. That would put both guys on the market.

          • CJ

            If that’s how it plays out, I’ll be convinced Howie is a Jedi. Just a week ago it looked like even giving that outcome a 2 chance was being optimistic.

      • Tom w

        Too many holes on skins. Raiders is the concern

        • GEAGLE

          If Miami has a fire sale, I’m hoping the raiders are the retards who eat Mike Wallace’s albatross of a contract, making it easier to take dions cap hit….raiders are a joke, if Byrd signs with them after trying to get out of buffalo for years then he is a Joke too… I mean how dysfunctional do the raiders have to be, to be interested in signing Jared Allen? Unless you are a Super Bowl contender trying to get over the hump, why the hell would you even consider an expensive old player like him? Like that’s some insanely dysfunctional ish..can’t wait to watch Raiders and skins blow money. They will have to overpay for whoever they want..no one is giving the raider a discount so that they can play for them, that’s for sure

  • GEAGLE

    What up my people? Byrds unlikely to reach long terms deal or use franchise tag on Byrd??hello free agency!! Get that check ready Howie..you will be a friggin god,,,

  • GEAGLE

    Screw ever single free agent on the market…get the Byrd to the nest, bring Dion home and let’s call free agency a day and get ready to BOSS the draft!!

    • James Skip Carl

      Trade down about 5 times and stockpile picks

      • GEAGLE

        That’s what I’m talking bout!!!! Actually let’s sign Alex Carrington away from the bills too! to punish them for making me sweat over Byrd for two friggin years! just so they can end up losing the best safety in nthe game anyway..smh what a joke of a minor league feeder organization…we will see Kiko in a few years lol

        • NickS1

          Don’t get my hopes up for Kiko. That’s just mean.

    • Khalid Washington

      Nobody has mentioned this guy….

      http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/story?storyId=10528945

  • GEAGLE

    I know I talked a lot about Malcom Jenkins to the point where people are now more accepting of him, but I don’t even want to see his name, in a Byrd hitting free agency celebration thread! Heck, if you want Jenkins, sign him in addition to Byrd and cut Chung…talk about improving your secondary!! But with Chung and Colt both gone, signing a ST leader like Corey Graham would become important

    • Tom w

      All in. Don’t see bills franchising him if they know better and if they do I would expect Howie trying to pull off a trade for him for graham and a pick in a month or two bc no way he signs his franchise tender.

      I gotta think shede is on chips radar. Interview probably was make it or break it for him

      • GEAGLE

        Hagemen? Not sure…I guess it depends what we do in free agency, if we add a pass rushing interior linemen like Carrington, along with Kruger and Curry, I think the DL we draft will have to be able to project to play some backup NT…maybe Hagemen has long enough arms and we can project him to backup Logan, but I’m not sure..I also worry about him already being 24yrs old, but he certainly fits the special first round athlete mold so I wouldn’t rule him out at all

        • Tom w

          Wow didn’t realize how old he was. Thanks for the heads up

          • GEAGLE

            Yeah man, I didn’t realize it til recently either and freaked me out a bit

          • DharmaBum

            KVN will be 24 in June.

          • Maggie

            And KVN is 26 already.

    • cliff henny

      heard 145m and 158m. my guess is they’ll roll over 12m, it just makes flexibility sense, and keep eagles from having to worry about getting under like cowboys this yr. move on from cole, herremanns graham and williams, that’s 23m, and added cap of 12m, gets them 35m under (and still plenty of other moves to get more). ’14 is going to be fun, but i cant even imagine this team by ’15 if Howie has a 3rd solid draft.

  • bill in sc

    Guys..and Maggie. Love the site. There has been a lot of talk about maclin and what he will do for the offence with his speed… I did have a question though.. can he block? I know cooper put up big numbers as the second receiver but he also was a good blocker…do you think that will cut down his chances to get on the field?

    • GEAGLE

      Traditionally it hasn’t been Maclins strength, but if Chip could get Desean to buy in and block his ass off, I wouldn’t worry about Maclin doing what the coach ask of him. It’s not like he is a tiny WR. He is bigger then most DBs he plays against…blocking is all desire, if he wants to block, he will be fine…and if he doesn’t, he won’t be on the field until he does

      • RIP illa

        Desean blocked his ass off after he got paid. Made Mac look silly that he couldn’t hold up a DB or only get holding penalties. I do agree, I expect him to be better working under this coaching staff, but I’m not gonna hold my breath for him to become real good at it.

    • Maggie

      Hi. further to your question, I am wondering about the rumor gaining strength about trading DJax. If that should happen, it will change the whole WR picture and bring a ton more questions about blocking. Maclin may have to become good at it or someone else we haven’t even thought of. I wouldn’t immediately discount the rumors, either. DeSean is 28, doesn’t have a whole lot to offer other than speed, and some say is a pain in the neck at times. There are WR in both FA and the draft who are younger, more versatile and more consistent. And cheaper, lol. None of us really knows what the FO is thinking anyway.

      • bill in sc

        I feel like every year there arepeople that want to cut losses and get rid of Jackson. It seems to me that they just did a bunch of contracts to say hey we want to reward our guys…Jackson bought in this year and improved his game…trading him seems to go against that… it also seems risky not having seen Maclin on the field. What could we even get for him with a deep receiver draft… would getting rid ofhim mean we could keep avant toto help coach young guys…I think I would rather keep Jackson this year. I think being a decoy really helped maclin’s numbers and then coopers numbers…that doesn’t get replaced with some new guy…

  • Token

    Another FA list

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000329702/article/jimmy-graham-heads-top-101-nfl-free-agents-for-2014

    If Byrd, Orakpo and Shields all hit the market Id have to think we are players for any one of them.

    • GEAGLE

      Shields I like, but the other two would have significantly more impact on our defenders…Byrd in the back end makes Cary and Brad much better…just think all the times they had good underneath coverage with Nate Allen behind them, those become Interceptions with Byrd. With Byrd they can trust their safety help! get up and press which is what they were signed to do, but not trusting your safeties is why you saw them give up so much of a cushion last year… Just feel like if we are going to spend that kind of money, do it on someone who makes our exsisting players much better…
      ..
      I don’t know that we beat the saints if we had shields…but if we had Byrd, I have little doubts we would have won that game!

      • Token

        Byrd, yea hes my #1 option. Orakpo my #2.

        Really tho, if they wanted too, they could afford to sign 2 of those 3 players and still be fine. Obviously unlikely.

        Shields is more of a forward thinking move. Cary is gone next year, nobody is paying him over 8 million for a year. Fletch contract is up and if he plays fairly well this season will get a raise.

        So getting a young good CB like Shields would be a good move. Id expect him to be in the 6 mil range. It assures you one CB spot is locked up. Then next year you can either move Boykin outside or keep Fletch. Or maybe they take a CB in the draft that could step out there. Any way you slice it really, Cary and Fletch will not both be here in 2015. Plan accordingly.

        • GEAGLE

          Can’t disagree

        • Tom w

          How bout verner … Younger better than shields

          • Token

            Its all opinion really.

            Personally id rather move Boykin outside than pay Verner. Closer to the same size.

            Verner will get more than Shields would be my guess. I think hes viewed as better overall. Better tackler too. But I think Shields has more potential as a cover corner. So for less money id take Shields.

          • RIP illa

            Who plays the slot then? Do we draft Verrett in the 1st?

          • Token

            No. Mid level FA next yr or a mid rounder or lower draft pick.

          • RIP illa

            And we are back to taking a strength and creating a weakness or possibly two, instead of just solving the initial “weakness”. In any aspect of life, it’s never optimal to rob Peter to pay Paul.

          • Token

            Nah, people just keep making slot corner out to be some critical position that a bunch of resources go into. You need a solid guy there. But at tge endof the day its a player that plays 50% of snaps. Slot is meant to be a young guy working his way up the ranks. Not a career position.

            They’ll need atleast one corner next year. So if Boykin continues to play well he earns the right to start. Its not really robbing peter to pay paul because u will have a whole at one spot or the other.

          • RIP illa

            The position has evolved. Years ago it was that way, but now their’s way more 11 personnel, TEs flexing out into the slot, spread formations, etc. Slot is important. You’ve seen us and other teams killed before by means of the slot WR time and time again. And not to forget, Boykin was a 2nd rd talent who dropped due to injury and being unable to workout. Just plugging in a mid to late round pick or mid-level FA is not a sure thing.

          • Token

            Sure….you do need a solid guy. But you dont hold back a good corner just because u like his slot play. Its silly. Wasting a top pick on a slot corner? Thats even worse. How many career slot corners do you think there are? If you have talent you move up the ranks until shown you cant. Boykin played only 50% of snaps. While Cary Williams played like 95%. Does that make a lot of sense to you?

            Lets say for sake of argument they get Shields this yr. Now u still need a starter opposite of him in 2015. You would rather that be Cary or Fletch.

            Something thats so simple is made so complicated.

          • RIP illa

            He’s not better than Shields. He had one better year than Shields. Another benefit to Shields is that he would come in knowing the system already. Same coaching family…Davis, Lebeau, Capers.

        • Maggie

          The Eagles have said many times that they are not inclined to move BoyKing outside.

    • cliff henny

      read in middle of season he truned down something near 5yrs 40m with 15m-18m guarenteed. dont recall exact numbers, but it was alot. all i thought is how could any f-ball player turn that down. Byrd wants the f out of Buffalo.

  • Tom w

    Fellas … Thoughts on 25 yr old probowler corner alt verner ,,, only 5 10 but rated out top 3 corner last yr … Titans can’t sign him and no interest in franchise. Is he overrated? Fits a Howie signing pre Kelly. Young elite We have zero guaranteed money in fletch I believe and could easily make him the 4 th corner. Shuts down half the field. Makes a mediocre safety signing look a whole lot better?? Thoughts???

    • GEAGLE

      Costs money…if you are willing to make THAT type of financial investment, then just pay whatever it takes for Byrd who will improve our exsisting Corner..I’m actually hoping the Rams sign him since they poach titan players and consequently cut Janoris Jenkins or Trumaine, and jump on one of the for cheaper

      • Tom w

        Okay but Byrd is three yrs older and wouldn’t a shutdown corner make eveyone in the secondary better???

        • GEAGLE

          No…how does a corner back make the other corners better if they continue getting inadequate safety help, or an improved pass rush? I don’t value corners like I used to when offenses were two starting outside WRs and a TE…now teams have a ton of weapons to throw at you so I feel like it’s much more important to find a safety that can help out against all the weapons that can be thrown at us! instead of a corner that at best will only take one weapon out of the equation? I just think for 40million, a safety makes a bigger impact on our defense

          • Tom w

            That’s fair. I guess Malcolm could end up in the rams too following Williams there. No way the rams cut janoris or traumaine on the rookie deals but I would be all over either

          • GEAGLE

            I don’t even get how the titans could let that kid get away. Franchise him if you have to, it’s not like they have BALLERS waiting in the wings..I find it odd but I like the kid so it’s their loss. They hired Ray Horton who always builds a good defense, and does well with corners like Petterson and Haden, and they aren’t going to keep this kid for Horton? I find it odd and dysfunctional. If we had drafted him and were about to lose him, we would have our pitch forks and torches out

          Nope. Game has changed. Elite safety is more valuable than a elite corner.

    Like does anyone reporting in Cleveland do their job? 28 hours away from Tag deadline and I can’t find a peep in the past 3 days about TJ Ward? If Ward and Byrd both hitting the market would make me feel so much better. Odds are, one will care about winning and playing for Chip…someone find out who their agents are and which recent eagles they have represented. IT REALLY MATTERS and fans and media under rate it!!! Hoping their agents have been paying attention to how nice it is to do business with Howie as opposed to the dreaded smelly dirtball banner

    saw this on twitter Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet

    #Bills, after gauging market and looking at possible trade options, are now unlikely to tag Jairus Byrd, per source (@JoeBuscaglia 1st said)

    • GEAGLE

      Yeah…shocker, they found out no one is willing to give them draft picks for someone you have to instantly hand 40million dollars to lol..Braindead dysfunctional bills lol
      ,..
      Any one on twitter talking bout TJ Ward?

  • GEAGLE

    OH HAPPY DAY! This may be the greatest post I have ever written! Lol

    Bills Jarius Byrd and Alex Carrington are represented by Jason Peters agent! Hahahahahahahagahahahahahahahagahaha

    • GEAGLE

      Btw, Eugen Parker’s agency just aquired the agency that represents Boykin,Kendricks and Dion Jordan hahahahaha

      com’on 4pm. sure Howie will be hush-hush, so i expect you to stakeout the airport, bus depots, train stations and hiking trains…if Howie can get him into town, there’s no way Byrd’s leaving

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Yeah and has anyone given thought to the fact that it’s possible that despite the reported offer from the Bills supposedly making him the highest paid safety for a portion of the contract, that maybe he just wants outta Buffalo? Not saying that it’s not possible that he may want a bit more money. But it is also possible he signs elsewhere for very close to Bills offer just to leave town.
