"He showed up to training camp in July leaner in preparing to make the switch from defensive tackle to end in the Bills' new scheme. However, he struggled along with an entire defense that finished 24th in the NFL in yards allowed and last in yards rushing. The Bills finished 4-12 and opened the season losing their first eight games."

Like I said, we would benefit from players with 3-4 experience.
Stroud was great in his days at J'ville, but not so much now.

SI.com first reported Seymour's extension. The website said that Seymour's contract is potentially worth $30 million and contains $22.5 million guaranteed.

Two years... 30 mil? For Seymour? Really? Really?

I think Davis is just the NFL Owner version of a troll. No longer has a desire to win so he decides to skew the payscale for certain positions. He was probably watching the Revis saga last year with a bowl of popcorn and a coke laughing his but off.

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

Well fellow skins fans, if cromartie hits the market would you consider making a push for him over Rogers? If the $ was right I would

Cromartie brings a lot baggage, and not just for his Brady Bunch family. Honestly I would keep Rogers over him.

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

I seem to recall that if a team placed the franchise tag on a player, there was a potential situation in which said team would not be able to use the franchise tag again until the franchised player's "new" contract expired. I really can't remember the details, but it seems to me that if you franchise a player and then sign him to a contract, you can't use the tag on another player until said contract expired. I may be totally off base with this, but I can't remember. Getting old sucks lol...

The way it worked (as far as I recall) is that they have a deadline to get a long term deal done by, which the franchise tag could be used again next year. If they work out a long term deal after that deadline, the franchise tag would apply to the length of the contract.

Most teams that don't get the deal done by that deadline, just have him sign the one year contract and get the deal done after the following season or use the franchise tag again.

This is my recollection on how it works.
