    Nobody is going to keep him beyond this year. He has a $10M option bonus and a $4.3M salary for 2013.
    Yeah, I guess. I honestly don't know how good he is as my only knowledge is from third parties and Madden 2007. He obviously got that big contract for a reason, he at least USED to be good.

    He has pretty good cover skills and makes plays on the ball, which shows in his passes defensed and interceptions numbers.

    However, he also gets beat for scores too often and gets called for a lot of penalties.

    I think he is being scapegoated a little in KC, which probably means there were some off-fields stuff as well. Their pass-rush has been a bigger issue for them, so my guess is he wasn't a good locker-room fit. That is speculation, though.

    If it were the off-season, this could be seen as a salary dump, but who cares about dumping salary in the middle of the year? It doesn't make sense as a salary move alone.
    It can't be a salary dump anyway - his money is guaranteed after week 1.

    Regardless with McGee on IR I predict the Bills sign him.

    And I called this yesterday - Eb has evidence.

    Because he's better than what we got at corner. Maybe? Perhaps?

    You post that like we're some awesome team...we're a tipped FG away from 2-6.

    Routt cleared waivers. He is a FA now.

We aren't going to go 6-1 and make the playoffs, so why bother picking up guys with big salaries to improve our team? At this point, I'd rather just lose-out and get a top-5 pick.

    Each meaningless win screws us on draft day. If we had lost one more game last year, we could've taken Kuechly or Tannehill, instead of Gilmore.
    The Bills FO/Coaches had expressed great interest in Tannehill and had he falled, he would be a Bill Today. Had the Bills lost that extra game, he would be a Bill today.

    In 2011, we could've had Von Miller over Dareus.
    Dont know who would have bee drafted but Dareus most likely.

    We could've had Patrick Willis instead of Lynch if we had lost one more meaningless game.
    I remember all of the hoopla going into that draft and in particular how most posters on this board really liked Willis well before he was talked about in draft shows. His stock skyrocketed in the last movements and the Bills even tried to swap picks with the 49ers to draft him! Very highly he would be a Bill Today had the Bills lost one extra game.

    You can't tell me we would be better off at this point adding more mediocre players.
    Please Make Sense
