Vote: projecting a contract for free agent CB E.J. Gaines

He’s good when he’s on the field. E.J. Gaines came to Buffalo as part of the Sammy Watkins trade. He had been drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the sixth round, pick 188 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. As Buffalo’s defense was substantially better with Gaines than it was when he missed time due to injury, he figures to be a priority target for the Bills to lock up before he leaves for greener pa$ture$. The question becomes what sort of contract Gaines can get on the open market and whether or not the Bills want to match it. Working in Buffalo’s favor is Gaines’ extensive injury...

Options for replacing E.J. Gaines in the 2018 NFL Draft

Options for replacing E.J. Gaines in the 2018 NFL Draft

If the Bills and free agent CB EJ Gaines part ways, the team may look to one of the players below to fill the void After being considered an afterthought/throw-in when the Buffalo Bills traded Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams, E.J. Gaines put together an above-average season despite limited playing time due to various nagging injuries. In spite of those injuries, Gaines has likely earned himself a decent raise, a raise Bills general manager Brandon Beane may balk at giving to the scheme-limited corner. If the Bills choose to let Gaines walk, they will find themselves in the market for...

4 potential free agent replacements for CB E.J. Gaines

4 potential free agent replacements for CB E.J. Gaines

Many think Gaines doesn’t want to remain in buffalo, should Buffalo try and keep him anyway? Cornerback E.J. Gaines turned out to a pleasant surprise for the Buffalo Bills last season, his first with the team after coming over to the Bills in the Sammy Watkins deal last summer with the Los Angeles Rams. At the time, many didn’t quite know what to expect from the former sixth-round pick, who had to battle in the preseason just for the right to start, but he overcame and wound up turning in a solid campaign. There are injury concerns with Gaines - he missed five games in 2017 and five the...

Bills don’t have internal options to replace E.J. Gaines

Bills don’t have internal options to replace E.J. Gaines

Stop me if this sounds familiar: Buffalo doesn’t really have many in-house options. While the Buffalo Bills drafted one cornerback of the future when the team selected sensational Tre’Davious White with the 27th overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, the team could be left with a gaping hole at the second cornerback spot. E.J. Gaines, Buffalo’s other starting cornerback, is an unrestricted free agent, and while he performed well last year, Spotrac projects him to make a whole lot of money on the open market. Gaines, who was traded from the Los Angeles Rams to the Bills along with two...

All-22 Analysis: E.J. Gaines is perfect for “The Process”

All-22 Analysis: E.J. Gaines is perfect for “The Process”

Corneback E.J. Gaines might not shine on every roster, but he’s a perfect fit for the McDermott and Frazier led Bills The new-look front office of the 2017 Buffalo Bills starring Sean McDermott took a look at the existing roster of defensive backs and “noped” their way through the entire list (though they did re-sign Colt Anderson). This questionable strategy led to a completely new back end on defense. The closest thing to a “splash signing” after the DB exodus was rookie corner Tre’Davious White. To the surprise of everyone not name “Sean McDermott,” the secondary was the...

Bills Links, 2/17: Plenty of free agency questions

The start of free agency is less than one month away The official start of the NFL free agency period is less than one month away, and there are plenty of questions around what the Buffalo Bills will do.

Vontae Davis visiting the Buffalo Bills

Davis, a two-time Pro Bowler, would strengthen the secondary The Buffalo Bills found one cornerback of the future in the 2017 NFL draft, as rookie Tre’Davious White burst onto the scene with a Rookie of the Year-caliber performance. Buffalo’s other starting cornerback, E.J. Gaines, is an unrestricted free agent, and while he performed well last year, Spotrac projects him to make a whole lot of money on the open market. According to ESPN’s NFL guru Adam Schefter, the Bills hosted an intriguing free agent cornerback option Thursday: two-time Pro Bowler Vontae Davis, 29, who was...

Buffalo Bills 2017 trades: cornerback E.J. Gaines was a great addition

Buffalo Bills 2017 trades: cornerback E.J. Gaines was a great addition

The pending free agent should be the number one priority of free agents this offseason Before the start of the 2017 season, the Buffalo Bills made what many fans and media members considers to be a few questionable trades at the time. It seemed they were trading away a good portion of their young talent and the future of this roster for years to come. Kaelin Clay, Jordan Matthews, E.J. Gaines and draft picks were the return for Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby and Kevon Seymour. In the middle of the season, the Bills traded their third-round pick for receiver Kelvin Benjamin. Matthews played 10...

The interior line and cornerbacks are the focus in today’s Bills Links While speculation around free agency and the draft will continue for the upcoming months, the off-season also gives the opportunity to take a look at the Buffalo Bills current roster. Joe Buscaglia continues his series of film reviews, taking a closer look at the cornerbacks and interior line for the Bills. Quarterback is obviously the most-discussed position this year, but the interior line and cornerbacks should not be ignored. The sudden retirement of Eric Wood, and the free agent status of E.J. Gaines could leave...
