Manny Lawson is a great addition and really fits the type of player George Edwards wished he had when he transitioned this defense to a 3-4. He repreents the move to a hybrid and I commend Buddy grabbing him for a very reasonable price.
This is where I would like to dedicate this entire post to my dream scenario based on what is remaining to my actual perception of what is going to really happen. Cue the dream:
Jake Long 3 yrs/12 Mill (6 guaranteed) - Move Cordy to RT or alternativly put Jake at RT.
Karlos Dansby 2yrs/6 Mill (Guaranteed) - Could be an every down LB that never comes off the field.
Kevin Burnett 2 yrs/4.5 Mill (Guaranteed) - Miami's other LB that no one talks about, that we had wished we signed 3 yrs ago.
Aqib Talib - 1 yr/3.5 Mill (Guaranteed)
Denario Alexander - 4 yrs/6.5 Mill (500,000 signing bonus) and a pick of
1 of Brad Jones/Karlos Dansby/Kevin Burnett - 3 yrs 10 Mill (6 Guaranteed) and thats it to be honest.
I for some reason or another cannot fathom Buddy dropping our cash on some of these guys based on principle. I dont get it. I know we have to spend our money based on the CBA so I am left wondering why we haven't even contacted these guys. maybe we have and the Bills just do a fantastic job of keeping stuff on the inside.
Finding out that we made Mike DeVito a priority really worries me. Delaney Walker I understand but Mike DeVito?????? Especially with guys like Knighton, Dorsey, Pouha and Soapawaga available.
Have at it fellas, This is a place where we can only hope so we might aswell. Feel free to compare your dreams (Bills related) vs your perceived reality.
