Potential Buffalo Bills cuts, trades that could save 2018 salary cap space

Potential Buffalo Bills cuts, trades that could save 2018 salary cap space

We’ve run them down in depth. Here’s a recap. The Buffalo Bills don’t have a lot of salary cap space in 2018 thanks to trades and retirements accelerating some big cap hits. There are ways Buffalo could clear some cap space, and we discussed several of them in-depth this offseason. Here, we’ve ranked them by potential savings, not whether we think they are likely to be cut or traded. We’ve used the 2018 salary cap savings as a pre-June 1 cut/trade for comparison’s sake.

Thoughts on the Bills paying Taylor’s $6 million roster bonus

Thoughts on the Bills paying Taylor’s $6 million roster bonus

Lots to look at with this report. While some may have been surprised by a report that the Buffalo Bills were willing to pay Tyrod Taylor $6 million near the start of free agency, this contingency shouldn’t be all that surprising. We discussed the very possibility in January with fans on multiple sides of the issue generating a lot of discussion. With few viable free agent options and no guarantee that the Bills will be able to trade into the top 5 to get a QB that Buffalo wants, the smart play may be to pay Tyrod Taylor his $6 million on March 17. He would be an expensive bridge/backup if...

Bills willing to pay Taylor’s roster bonus to ensure QB position

Bills willing to pay Taylor’s roster bonus to ensure QB position

The Bills could be making a play or genuinely interested in retaining their starting quarterback. The Buffalo Bills might move on from Tyrod Taylor, but according to a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, they want their replacement in hand before doing so and it might cost them a pretty penny. “At this point, it doesn’t seem like they’re going to cut him without knowing who his replacement will be,” Rapoport reported Thursday on NFL Up to the Minute Live. “The Bills are OK with paying a $6 million roster bonus to keep him on the roster.” Taylor is due the roster bonus on...

Why the Bills should draft Lamar Jackson

Why the Bills should draft Lamar Jackson

The Bills could even keep Tyrod Taylor as a bridge quarterback if needed This is the second of a three-part opinion series related to the Buffalo Bills quarterback position. I have changed my opinion so many times on what the team should do at quarterback that I am even annoying myself. Last week I wrote about my desire for the Buffalo Bills to sign Kirk Cousins to a lucrative contract to become the franchise quarterback for the team. With that being said, it is not the only scenario that I would like to see this offseason. If the Bills do not pursue Cousins, I would love to see the team...

Peter King predicts the offseason QB carousel with Bills, Tyrod split

Peter King predicts the offseason QB carousel with Bills, Tyrod split

King sees Tyrod Taylor landing with AFC East rival, and the Bills one of nine teams to draft a QB There has already been movement on the quarterback front among teams eager to solve the puzzle that is the most important position on the field. The Buffalo Bills could be one of the next moves. Tyrod Taylor, who has compiled a 23-21 record in three years as starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills, seems to have worn out his welcome in Western New York and could either be traded or released before he is due a $6 million roster bonus on the third day of the league year. The Kansas City...

Which Buffalo Bills are deserving of contract extension?

These players in the final year of their contract in 2018 are worthy of extensions As the Buffalo Bills management team is focused on making decisions about the 22 players who are classified as free agents in one capacity or another, it’s never too early to take a look at the players who have only one year remaining on their contracts with the Bills.

Would you rather: AJ McCarron or Tyrod Taylor

Would you rather: AJ McCarron or Tyrod Taylor

Which of these QBs would you prefer? With Cincinnati Bengals backup quarterback AJ McCarron winning his grievance last week, he is all set to become a free agent next month. With questions at the quarterback position for the Buffalo Bills, many fans are hoping the team goes after anybody to replace current QB Tyrod Taylor. I understand the frustration with Taylor. I really do. He misses plenty of open receivers, doesn’t go through all of his reads, takes too many sacks, and all in all is pretty average on the spectrum of NFL quarterbacks. If McCarron were to come to the Bills, it would...

Bills want to trade Tyrod Taylor, per Rapoport

Bills want to trade Tyrod Taylor, per Rapoport

In a quarterback-hungry league, Taylor should have trade value Heading into the offseason, the biggest question facing the Buffalo Bills has been what to do about the quarterback position, the most important position on the roster. While the rumors around incumbent starter Tyrod Taylor have focused on his being released before he is due a $6 million roster bonus on the third day of the league year, a new report by Ian Rapoport, a national insider for NFL Network and NFL.com, says that rather than cutting Taylor outright, the Bills are pushing hard to trade their starting quarterback. “My...

Bills Links, 2/14: New predictions at what Buffalo may do in 2018 NFL Draft

More mock drafts are available from CBS Sports, Rotoworld, and more The Buffalo Bills are certainly the focus of many mock drafts these days, as analysts see them as a wild card to trade up for a quarterback.

Plus a closer look at other quarterback options The quarterback discussion shows no signs of slowing down, and Chad Reuter’s latest mock draft is sure to lead to a healthy discussion. As noted below, Reuter sees the Buffalo Bills keeping Tyrod Taylor as a bridge quarterback for Louisville’s Lamar Jackson.

Tyrod Taylor won’t take another pay cut to stick with Buffalo Bills

Tyrod Taylor won’t take another pay cut to stick with Buffalo Bills

During Super Bowl week, Taylor was asked about a possible pay cut to stay with the Bills and dismissed the idea During the commotion of last week’s lead up to the big game, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was asked by the Buffalo News if he would consider a pay cut to remain with Buffalo in 2018. Taylor’s status with the team has been in question since Week 11 of this past season when he was benched for rookie QB Nathan Peterman. Taylor’s response to the question of a paycut was “Nah, that’s not really part of the plan right now.” "Definitely not part of my mindset," continued...

4 potential free agent replacements for Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay

4 potential free agent replacements for Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay

Could a high 2018 salary as well as the addition of new OC Brian Daboll spell the end of Clay’s time in Buffalo? Charles Clay has been productive over his three seasons with the Buffalo Bills, but has the seven-year man been productive enough? This is a question that the Bills brass might possibly ask themselves this offseason in regards to their starting tight end, who, per Spotrac, has a cap hit of $9 million for the 2018 season, higher than that of every other Bill aside from Tyrod Taylor, Cordy Glenn, and Jerry Hughes. Clay has been one of the main focal points of Buffalo’s offense...
