What sense does this make? Some thoughts...
The point I saw a couple of times made by others is that he kinda sucks, seeing as how he was cut from the Rams. But as far as I know, that was for disciplinary purposes, not for lack of talent. (And other than his spat with Mitchell, did he have any problems with the Bills at all?) And what's the best option for players who have troubling personalities? Same as injury histories! Sign them for a year, a la TO!
And that's what I don't understand. Isn't this offseason the king of opportunities to sign players to one year deals? Here is a team that has the flimsiest, most pitiful line in the NFL, and could tender a proven vet (with an attitude) for what... $1.5M? $1.75M? Is it even humanly possible to sign a starting offensive lineman for that little now? And we could have had him plug up a hole for a year and not committed another day to him.
Is this the Bills' way of saying "no matter what, we are going to draft at least 3 offensive lineman this year and we want as many rookies as possible starting?" I just don't understand how they could turn their backs on a next-to-no-risk one year, cheapo deal at a position of desperate need.
