The Buffalo Bills are close to $69 Million in dead roster cap space for the upcoming 2018 NFL season. This means the Bills have salaries and bonuses of players on roster, who no longer play for the team like Marcel Dareus, Ronald Darby ( a Super Bowl Champion), and Sammy Watkins trades. We can’t leave out the stupid 2-year extension of Eric Wood back in training camp at the ripe age of 31 years old and two bad knees. Brandon Beane and his trusty side kick Head Coach Sean McDermott feel they had to get rid of several talented players who all went on to play in the 2017 NFL playoffs and a Super Bowl Champion.
It’s clear that in 2018 you do not need to tear a team down and build from scratch. These guys are hell bent on bringing in all of their own players instead of merging the talent you have with new draft picks, that’s how most of the successful teams do it. These guys are acting like they have a track record, but they really don’t. Nobody’s job is safe at One Bills drive anymore. Coach McDermott last week fired an Assistant equipment manager, who worked for the Bills for the past 35 years. WOW!!! I wonder what he could have done wrong, maybe he did not get the laundry as clean as it should have been to Coach McDermott’s standards!
The salary cap is out of control and Bills have no money to keep most of their 22 unrestrictive free agents. They will eventually sign and trade Tyrod Taylor, once they find a drop back passer of their liking. This will be the season of an unnecessary rebuild caused by self-inflicted poor trades, and miss handling of the salary cap by Beane and McDermott. Brandon Beane has never been a General Manager and its showing in his miss handling of the salary Cap. It’s a shame because Bills fans deserve a lot more than what they are getting from this very inexperienced duo.
