I did! But no one did it fast enough, and 10 or 20 seconds went by and I got impatient. I just beat you Laughing

Mike Rodak‏ @mikerodak
Bills have signed WR Andre Holmes to a three-year, $4.5 million contract with $2.425 million guaranteed, per NFLPA documents.


We could have easily afford that. Cut that bum SS-Keith McGill and we have even a little bit more money for WR-Andre Holmes.


Based in what we've seen in FA so far:
- Signed Patterson(ST gunner skills)
- Interested in Martellus Bennett (big bodied receiver)
- Interested in Jared Cook (big bodied receiver)

It seems that we were planning on him moving on and/or ok with moving forward without him. Those parts of those guys' skillsets (would) help replace his while bringing a little more to the table overall.

Also, I'm hesitant to cut ANY safety right now. All we have is Nelson, Joseph, McGill; right?


SS-Keith McGill is easily replaceable. A guy that can't tackle and is stiff as a rock. Tell me, what does he bring to the team?


Knowledge of the system. Depth (even if poor). Why would you worsen a need before addressing it?
He's useless every opportunity to start he has stunk it up, just time to move on.


Wow, wow, wow. Just because he has knowledge of the system, we should keep him? He's a flat out horrendous player. The quality on this forum keeps on dying by the day. What's next? McGill got X amount of tackles so we should keep him? Laughing


We have 3 Safeties on the roster. 2 are bad, and the other has injury concerns. You're saying cut one of them. Which would leave us with 1 bad S, and one who isn't proven to stay healthy. How does that help us? Freeing up a whopping $690k? Ok Laughing


Oh Lordy Lord. Please bless this man with better eyes and maybe a brain if you have the time Lord Laughing How many times do I have to repeat myself that Keith McGill doesn't belong on the roster? Hell, he doesn't even belong in the NFL with his tackling and stiffness. The goal for every team in the offseason is to get better. You still with me so far? There's the 2017 NFL Draft right around the corner and we still have the 2017 Free Agency going on. Sign a better free agent SS/FS and draft a better SS/FS than SS-Keith McGill to team up with SS-Karl Joseph and FS-Reggie Nelson. It's that simple as that my friend. Defending a poor player that hasn't shown us anything for the last 3 years is pure foolishness.


He never had an issue with your assessment of McGill. Just that it doesn't make sense to release him now. We have even filled those positions yet and who knows how FA or the draft will go. I mentioned in another tread that I expect we may draft 2 safeties and still may sign one in FA or thru a waiver wire move. But none of those things have happened yet. If we get the upgrades then the appropriate roster moves will be made.



THIS. Not to reopen the wound but sheesh. Its this simple.

Also, don't attack other posters. Very Happy

Did you secretly pull a ninja? I'm onto you.



Also, I've been a mod for like a while now and no one has given me any cookies. Sad!

Staying overnight after visiting during the day? That's a great sign. Recruit all night, take him to dinner, make it official in the morning, just like Patterson

Cook wasn't in the building though, so that one is much more dicey
