    Sign Adam Humphries and Cole Beasley then the best OL available. The bills may sign John Brown though.

    By the way if they fix the OL they don't need a new rb.

    Beasley-2, Harris-3, Paradis-5, Smith-4, Phillips-1

    Getting a starting C and OT in FA frees up the draft tremendously.

    I don't think we're going to get anyone in the top tier. I could see us making a play for Tyrell Williams, Mitch Morse, Ja'Wuan James and Jordan Phillips re-signed.

    Other UFA not mentioned I think we could pursue are

    OT LaAdrian Waddle Has ties to Daboll in New England and both of our new offensive line coaches. May not be upgrade to Jordan Mills but should be cheaper or maybe better depth than what we have now.

    TE CJ Uzomah He's been a depth guy for years in Cincy but finally put up some numbers when had chance last year to start. A good athlete who I see better than Croom and more upside than Clay.

    CB EJ Gaines Beane has shown he can bring guys back after leaving for a year before see WRs Clay and Thompson last year. Gaines should be affordable depth that has shown can play well when starting Incase Wallace should have a sophomore slump.

    There is, of course, no way this happens. These particular positions are so thin in FA this year that we will be paying above premium to get top tier O-line help. There is a lot of really good day-2 O-line talent in this year's draft.

    Not a lot there and thus inflated prices.

    Just goes to show how important it is to draft for the 5 OL positions often and early.

    It is becoming clear that the Bills have let the OL become so bad that no amount of FA money and draft picks can fix this OL in just one year.

    I have a feeling there will be a lot of 1's, 2's and 3's signed and no 4's or 5's

    Re: Be the GM: Play the Buffalo Bills $15 2019 Free Agent Challenge

    If I'm over-spending in free agency, I'm doing it on young guys in the trenches.

    DT Grady Jarrett $5
    OT Donovan Smith $4
    C/G Mitch Morse $3
    C/G Travis Swanson $2
    DT Jordan Phillips. $1

    But if it's one per actual position I would have to go...

    WR Tyrell Williams $4
    TE Maxx Williams $1
    IOL Matt Paradis $5
    OT Donavon Smith $4
    DT Jordan Phillips $1

    Josh Allen (courtesy of UncleOrton)

    School: University of Wyoming / Height: Mucho Grande / Stats are for losers
    Pros: Josh Allen is one of the best prospects in recent years. His arm strength makes Superman cry like the baby he is. He would be the perfect fit in a place like Buffalo where it has never once stopped snowing or had winds under 30 mph (according to the national media).
    Cons: Josh Allen is one of the worst prospects in recent years. If you were unaware, his accuracy is really bad. He also suffers from poor decision making which is reflected in his haircut.
    Pro Comparison: Josh Allen is equivalent to playing your drunk friend in Madden. One play, he lofts a screen pass over the running back's head out of bounds. The next play he throws a perfect 50 yard pass into triple coverage with one eye open asking "which team am I".
    QB JOSH ALLEN @ #7 LB TREMAINE EDMUNDS @ #16 DT HARRISON PHILLIPS @ #96 CB TARON JOHNSON @ #121

    Tyrell Williams was a deep receiver, if the bills are going to spend big money on a receiver it should make a case to not draft a receiver with the 9th overall pick.

    I don't think receiver should be an option at #9 this year anyway, regardless of what they do in free agency.

    Just to me at least, he's a 31 year old expensive slot receiver who wants to play with a contender. Doesn't really make sense right here right now.
    And if Obama did that ? Seriously ?

    Is Mr. Pink the one to bring me down ? Is Peterman on an NFL roster in 2019 ? What avatar do I choose for Mr. Pink ? Stay tuned, it's hugely !

    Not sure. Where last season was a solid foundation draft, from my minimal knowledge to date this is a frosting on the cake parts and pieces draft. They're not going to get everything they need, so they almost have to do what they did last year and at least add 2 theoretical gems. FA can make some line problems less compelling. They've sort of locked themselves into this being year three of rebuilding even if they want to keep pretending it's year 2 or even 1.
