well it sounds like J.P. is looking for a little too much money and we do not need another hold out this year. Here's an inlikely proposition, Jason Peters for Julius Peppers straight up. one of the top Tackles for one of the Top DEs in the game. Peter's is great and it will leave the entire left side missing but we have just solidified our defense and got rid of a player who doesn't want to be here. Does Peppers, probably not, but we all know he wants out of Carolina and hopefully N.E. is bluffing because Buffalo doesnt need him playing for the Pats either. so the second part of this equation is make another move for a starting Guard and draft a Tackle with the first pick. Right now we have no depth on either line, but putting the deffense first and rebuilding the o-line could work. Now i know the chances of this happening is roughly 0.00% happening so 1 more option would be trade Peters for at least a 1st rounder. Philly, Cincy and other need a good tackle, well we need a lot more than that, so again get rid of a guy who doesnt want to be here and draft two players OT, DE or OLB in the first 32 picks.
My opinion Buffalo has done a C- effort this offseason for getting players we needed. Marketing A++++, but false hopes wear off with every loss. we need starters on both lines and we got 1 out of 4 positions (C,G,DE,DT) not to mention we have 1 backup for offense, that doesnt sound like a smart decision. Now i back Buffalo and Ralph with their decisions, but i would have loved to see some linemen come in this year if they truely believe T.O. will bring the playoffs back to Buffalo.
like always Go BILLS!!
