With Cuts starting around the league, I have decided to come up with a list of players under contract in 2013 that I would like to see removed from the roster because of salary, poor play or both. I am not going to go into the Fitz situation because I think we've beaten that horse so bad in belongs in an episode of "The Walking Dead".
#1 Chris Kelsey. 2013 Salary Cap hit $4,975,000
Its safe to say most Bills fans experienced the same shock I did when he signed his last extension, and he has done nothing to prove us wrong. Since being drafted in 2003 he has played next to many talended players on the D-line and has never stepped up and shined. In the early years it was Sam Adams, Pat Williams, and Aaron Schobel. Now its Darius, Kyle and Mario. Either way Kelsey has been ordinary at best at a position where you need playmakers to have a successful defense.
#2 Terrence McGee. 2013 Salary Cap hit 4,350,000
Ideally I would love to see McGee return to form and have a long healthy career but that just doesent seem realistic. The reality is past his prime and he cant stay healthy. I cant imagine him being around next year.
#3 George Wilson. 2013 Salary Cap hit 4,491,667
I wouldnt be surprised if the Bills gave him the choice to renegotiate his contract or take his walking papers. He is good on special teams and can back up both SS and FS. But 4.5 million is way too much for that type of player.
#4 Erik Pears. 2013 Salary Cap hit 2,800,000
He will be 31 at the start of next season and has shown that he is nothing special at RT. Pears has only started 16 games twice in his 8 year career and really is only a backup talent at best. I would like to see the Bills move Hariston to the starting RT spot and draft another swing tackle to compete with Sam Young and Zebrie Sanders as the primary backup.
#5 Brad Smith. 2013 Salary Cap hit 3,750,000
With Gailey gone I expect to see them move on from the Brad Smith experiment. I dont expect to see much wildcat in the Bills offense and if it is used im sure we can find another player to run it.
That totals just over 20 Million that can be used to help keep our 2 key free agents in Buffalo.
