Mike Maccagnan, wherever he is, just began quietly weeping because he won’t get the chance to give him $60 million guaranteed

And Mrs. Maccagnan is whipping up some mean cupcakes!!!

He will string the Jets along - get them to offer a huge contract - then go back to Buffalo for less money! Maybe that was before McCoffee. With McCoffee they actually took the money but wouldn't play?

Of course PFF are way too into their ratings when predicting salaries but still it's an interesting take.

38. LB MATT MILANO

Prediction: Detroit Lions — four years, $45 million ($20 million guaranteed)

Buffalo has some tough decisions to make this offseason, and one of them could be letting Milano walk in free agency. Detroit doesn't have much cap space, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the team do everything in its power to create room for a Golladay tag and an upgrade at off-ball linebacker. The Lions’ linebacker room outside of Jamie Collins Sr. struggled mightily in 2020, with Reggie Ragland and Jahlani Tavai each posting 35.7 coverage grades.

Milano has been rather inconsistent but has looked like one of the top coverage linebackers in the league at times. Back in 2018 and 2019, he ranked 14th and fourth, respectively, in coverage grade. Yet, his run defense and tackling have underwhelmed. Milano posted sub-60.0 grades against the run, in coverage and as a tackler in 2020, leading him to a PFF WAR rank of 37th at the position.
