    Bills Players Who Could Be ‘Contract’ Cuts


    There are a few players who may be more useful to Beane for the space they can create against the salary cap than the plays they can create against another team.

    These players aren’t “cap casualties” because the salary cap poses the Bills no danger.
    You could call them “contract casualties.”
    The following are the top candidates not to survive the offseason in Buffalo, listed from least likely to most likely. Releasing the entire group would add a bit over $20 million to the Bills’ free agent treasure chest and give Beane over $100 million to spend.

    T. J. Yeldon


    Cap Savings: $1.65M Dead Money on Cap If Released: $250K

    Yeldon, mostly, did not have a good season in 2019. He totaled 187 yards on 30 touches (17 rushes, 13 catches) with no touchdowns and a lost fumble. His blocking was not very helpful. Yeldon only played in six games and did not appear in the playoff against Houston. Even his not-too-high-to-begin-with special teams snaps dwindled as the year continued.

    He is also the only true NFL running back left under contract not named Devin Singletary (Yes, Christian Wade is, technically, on the roster. No, we aren’t discussing him until he gets out of International Program Purgatory. So, don’t ask). Whenever the Bills do add a running back or four, Yeldon still has a competitive advantage because he’ll know the Brian Daboll offense better.

    This will simply come down to if the Bills can find two running backs they like better than Yeldon to fill out the depth chart alongside/behind Singletary. Yeldon’s cap hit won’t force him off the team, but that couch cushion change dead cap hit won’t make him hard to jettison, either.

    I think Kroft is a dead man walking.

    Murphy's cap savings is huge so I could see that happening depending on who we get in the draft/FA.

    The rest are chump change by NFL standards so it doesn't really matter.

    Right on.

    Kroft played with the Bills in 2019??? He was almost invisible.

    Was just going to post this. Kroft is a gigantic waste of cap and roster space.

    Except for the playoff sealing touchdown against the Steelers.

    Murphy had 2 sacks in the playoff game, he's a key role player and can't see him going anywhere no matter whom we bring in. The defensive line is about bringing in fresh guys so I don't think anyone will crack 10 sacks unless Oliver goes hog wild next year. I agree Kroft could go if we add another veteran.

    The issue with Murphy is that he's not reliable because he's injured so often. Between that and the cap numbers, they have to be looking for another option. That being said, they may decide to stick with him because they can't get anyone equal or better.

    So what? The season is 16 games long. Like I said, he was almost invisible.

    Kroft maybe, but I dont think we've seen enough of him, unless we think he's always going to be injured.
    Can't say I watched him play much, but when he was on the field, was the lack of production due to lack of opportunity or just inept play?

    As for Yeldon, I do think he's gone. I really do think Wade makes the roster this year, and we might even draft a late roundr RB or an undrafted FA to compete.

    Kroft has been a disappointment is an understatement.

    Murphy probably replaced.

    More money for Tre and whoever else we see that needs extending.
