Bills undecided on matching Patriots' offer to Mike Gillislee

The Buffalo Bills have until Monday to match the New England Patriots' two-year, $6.4 million offer to restricted free agent Mike Gillislee. What It Means: The Bills immediately bowed out when wide receiver Chris Hogan signed an offer sheet with New England last offseason, but that hasn't happened this time around. ESPN reporter Mike Reiss says his "gut feeling" is that Buffalo will match the offer, though he expects the Bills to "take this right up to the deadline." The Bills would net a fifth-round pick if Gillislee winds up in Foxboro. Gillislee finished the 2016 season with...

Bills Leaning Toward Matching Patriots’ Offer Sheet For RB Mike Gillislee?

Mike Reiss of ESPN wonders if the Bills delaying a decision on matching the Patriots’ offer sheet to restricted RB Mike Gillislee could be an indication that they’re more likely to match it, given that they almost immediately had a decision on WR Chris Hogan last year. Reiss mentions that it’s possible losing Hogan to … The post Bills Leaning Toward Matching Patriots’ Offer Sheet For RB Mike Gillislee? appeared first on NFLTradeRumors.co.

New England Patriots Have Put Buffalo Bills in a Tough Spot

  The New England Patriots have recently put the Buffalo Bills in a tough place after offering a contract to running back Mike Gillislee.

On Mike Gillislee, the weird NFL trade market, and landing in the middle

Extensive thoughts on the Gillislee situation. Mike Gillislee is — almost assuredly — a goner, just a few days away from joining the Patriots. New England’s offer is for two years and $6.4 million, with $4 million in the first year. The Bills are unlikely to match because, as MRW mentioned yesterday, if Buffalo didn’t value him at the second-round tender value of $2.7 million for 2017 before, why would they pay him that now? Chris Hogan was signed to a 3-year, $12 million offer sheet by New England in 2016. Buffalo decided not to match. While his enormous AFC title game...

Patriots’ offer sheet for RB Mike Gillislee hard to match for Buffalo Bills, who reportedly

Patriots’ offer sheet for RB Mike Gillislee hard to match for Buffalo Bills, who reportedly "don’t believe” they will do so

According to Jeff Howe, the Bills might be willing to let Gillislee join New England. Earlier today, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the New England Patriots have extended an offer sheet to restricted free agent Mike Gillislee. According to Rapoport, the team’s offer for the Buffalo Bills running back is a two-year contract worth a total of $6.4 million, with $4.0 million coming in the deal’s first year. It is the second time in two years that New England has extended an offer to a Bills restricted free agent. Last year, the team went after wide receiver Chris Hogan with a...

CB Stephon Gilmore is the latest example of Bill Belichick adding a player who had success against his team in the past

CB Stephon Gilmore is the latest example of Bill Belichick adding a player who had success against his team in the past

If you can’t beat him, sign him to a contract. The Patriots often will take a former opponent that had extensive success against them and eventually add them to the roster. That philosophy has brought in players like Wes Welker, Reggie Wayne, Chris Hogan, Brandon LaFell, Eric Rowe, and others to the Patriots organization. They don’t always work out as about half of them flame out by the end of their first year, but the ones that stick past then tend to turn into great role guys. The Patriots’ biggest free agent signing was inking former Bills CB Stephon Gilmore to a 5/$65M contract...
