Cornerbacks

I would like to follow up on Brian's post about McKelvin stealing the spotlight after I noticed that there was a lot of discussion on McGee and his future with the team. To me it seems that the Buffalo Bills have more than a few options in regards to the direction they want to take the corner back position.

1. ) Let Greer Walk- In what could be the simplest answer to what our corner situation will be next year, the Bills can simply elect to let Jabari Greer test the free agent market and move forward with McGee and McKelvin, the McLovin Duo as the starters. Of course this would leave the team with one starter who is approaching 30 and another who is still just a kid. Considering that Reggie Corner may never develop into a starting caliber corner and Ashton Youboty is too unreliable in terms of injuries and performance, the Bills would likely have to use a draft choice this year or next on an heir to McGee's spot.

2.) Move McGee to the Slot- Of course, Buffalo could keep Greer and slide McGee inside as our third corner to let him play physical while leaving Greer and McKelvin on the outside. For this to work I think it is clear that the front office would somehow have to placate McGee's probably hurt ego by explaining that they are simply trying to utilize his strengths to make him a better player and that his role with the team hasn't diminished. I don't know if he'd buy it, but I would love the team to have three great corners. The Eagles were able to make Lito Sheppard accept such a role so you never know.

3.) Let McKevlin Learn Another Year- The shelf life of great returners in this league is short so the Bills could elect to keep McKelvin as our main returner while giving him another year at the nickel to develop into a smarter player. It may be hard to justify leaving such explosiveness out of the starting lineup however.

4.) Move McGee to Free Safety - This to me is the best answer. A team can never have enough secondary talent on the field and with three starting capable corners moving McGee to FS could allow us to field McGee, Greer, McKelvin and Whitner all at the same time. That is an excellent secondary right there if you ask me. If we come out in a nickel we could even slide McGee back into the slot and put Scott in at safety. I think this could be an excellent way to maximize the level of talent the Bills put on the field.

5.) Trade McGee - As a follow to the fact that a team can never have enough talented corners is that McGee could probably bring us in a quite a haul in a trade. Whether it is draft picks, a player for player trade, or some combination. There would be more than a few teams interested in picking up a great corner back which means the competition and level of compensation for the Bills could be very high.
