TE, Ballard can be a LEGIT backup for gronk and/or a nightmare in 2 and 3 TE sets, imagine those 2 huge TE´s blocking + Oline
RB, Demps can really run and its a football player, not a track star trying to get cute and play football. He can take over PR and KR, and help on third down. (camp its gonna be soooo competitive for vareen, demps and woodhead)
DT, Armstead, looks good on video, probably will need some time. He could be like having another 3rd round pick (i´m not buying he is 1st or 2nd round material) This addition to the team, gives BB room to use the 1st rounder in a Pass rusher or DB.
THE REST OF THE EQUATION ??? Just do the same than last year...
1.- have another good defensive Draft, just like last year.
2.- bring a good WR to this team, Just like last year.
3.- Take care of your players, Talib, Welker and Vollmer and its done !!!!
Its not a flashy offseason, but a great one if you ask me...
You left out the #1 things i want to do (AFTER we keep our 3-5 important guys) and tht is throw a TON of money at Jairus Byrd
We only have 3 draft picks, so if we do as you say, and I agree with you, then adding a D-lineman who can get to the QB, a burner or height WR and then either depth at CB or LB will take up the entire draft.
But if the ONLY free agent we get is Byrd, I will be thrilled as long as we also kept Talib, Voller and Welker (ordered by importance).
Aren't Byrd and the Bills already talking about an extension. I'd be surprised if they let him go.
James Walker of ESPN.com reports that the Bills have started talking about a contract extension with safety Jairus Byrd.
Per Walker, no deal is imminent. Byrd can become a free agent after this season so it makes sense that the Bills would try to lock him up before he can hit the open market. Byrd has made a strong impact on the Buffalo defense
If the Bills can’t work out a long-term deal with Byrd, he’d definitely be a candidate for the franchise tag.
Between the talks already starting and the franchise tag being available its prob unreasonable to think Byrd will make it to free agency.... but if he does... make him the top paid safety in the game for all I care. He would be a GODSEND.
