I have a couple of questions and maybe a few intriguing things to ponder. With the off-season rapidly approaching I have a few questions about the Bills financial situation.
a) How much money do the Bills have in regards to the salary cap?
b) Are the Bills still spending under the "cash to the cap" philosophy?
c) What contracts are coming off the books next year?
d) When are our big contracts going to be up?
e) Are these types of questions going to be unanswered because the Bills franchise doesn't let anyone know of these things?
I ask these questions because I am interested in why the Front Office doesn't pay the good players that the Bills develop, and let go. Was it unreasonable (financially) to resign players like Pat Williams and Antoine Winfield to extensions? I know Clements was asking for the moon and the Bills couldn't afford it. But guys like Jabari Greer, London Fletcher and others asking for too much?
I am just throwing this out there, but if we had re-signed Jabari Greer, would it be significantly more than paying Florence and Corner combined and keeping Yobouty as the 4th CB?
I am not from the area and I don't read the Buffalo news, I am just trying to get a read on the financial situation with the Bills. I want to know if Wilson is being frugal or if there is a legitimate concern regarding funds with this franchise. Help a brother out. Thanks for the feedback in advance!
