Jetsfan80 Posted January 9, 2020 Share Posted January 9, 2020 In a previous thread, I brought up the notion that the Jets' seemingly great cap situation is deceptive. After re-signing our own, our cap space will be, roughly, $25-40M. The Bills, meanwhile, enter the offseason with $88.5M per overthecap.com. Granted, they have a few of their own to re-sign. But many of them are expendable: Player Pos. 2019 Team 2020 Team Type Snaps Age Current APY Guarantees Jordan Phillips 43DT Bills UFA 52.1% 28 $4,500,000 $2,000,000 Lorenzo Alexander (RETIRED) 43OLB Bills UFA 47.6% 37 $3,750,000 $1,600,000 Kevin Johnson CB Bills UFA 32.4% 28 $3,000,000 $400,000 Shaq Lawson 43DE Bills UFA 46.2% 26 $2,569,744 $10,278,976 Quinton Spain LG Bills UFA 99.5% 29 $2,050,000 $200,000 Frank Gore RB Bills UFA 34.9% 37 $2,000,000 $500,000 LaAdrian Waddle LT Bills UFA 0% 29 $2,000,000 $400,000 Julian Stanford ILB Bills UFA 7.2% 30 $1,500,000 $550,000 Mo Alexander 43OLB Bills UFA 6.9% 29 $1,000,000 $150,000 Corey Liuget 34DE Bills UFA 17% 30 $930,000 $0 Kurt Coleman S Bills UFA 6.7% 32 $930,000 $0 Senorise Perry RB Bills UFA 0.8% 29 $720,000 $0 Dean Marlowe S Bills RFA 10.3% 28 $600,000 $0 Isaiah McKenzie WR Bills RFA 41.6% 25 $600,000 $0 Jason Croom TE Bills ERFA 0% 26 $527,000 $0 Robert Foster WR Bills ERFA 20.1% 26 $525,000 $0 Levi Wallace CB Bills ERFA 76% 25 $525,000 $0 After they make decisions on the likes of Shaq Lawson, Quinton Spain, and a few others, they'll still have probably double the cap space that we'll be left with. Clearly, UNCW grad GM Brandon Beane has done a terrific job at roster building. And now he'll be able to enter free agency with a lot of funds to play with. And much like us, the vast majority of their needs are on the offensive side of the ball, as they'll likely look to boost their Offensive Line and find another WR to support Josh Allen. They could very easily be competing for the same types of free agents that we're looking for. And unlike the Jets, they're going to be an attractive destination based on their recent success. Granted, Buffalo is a tough geographical sell for a lot of free agents. But winning trumps location in most cases. 2 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
