    We have the cap space flexibility to do largely whatever we want. don't people get sick of repeating these incorrect statements?

    Just another body in the mix for SS. Only signed 1 year deal (I read).

    Well Montana is still out there, but he is not returning Jerry's calls.

    So in other words we signed another scrub, that will lead us to the promised land.

    He's probably nothing more than an insurance policy who can be rented for a year. We now have 4 safeties to start camp.
    This also points to a reality that most likely we won't be taking a safety in the first 3 rounds. We have to focus on CB and DE and
    maybe a falling DT from Michigan somewhere in the first 100 picks.

    Yes, but he was signed so that during the draft there is no pressing need to reach for a safety. I still call that affecting the draft. I fully understand who he is what his signing is about.

    So this signing says we won't be taking a safety, what about the signing of Moore and Carroll.

    Does that mean we aren't taking a safety, CB, or DE? All are cheap vets, they are absolutely no sign of what we will do in the draft.

    There are more positions than safety that we don't have a starting level player.

    Carroll is the only one that is getting decent money. Moore is a min guy with a small bonus, Blanton should be also (He was with the Bills last season with $80K SB)

    Just saying none of them change our draft plans at all.

    We could still draft a CB, DE, or safety....none of them are important enough to make a difference.....with Carroll, we actually lost two CBs, not one.

    None make a difference in the draft

    I was just following up with what you said. The one effect it has over the draft is that they don't feel they have to reach for a position.

    Covering bases, nothing more. Good special teams player who could cover at safety if needed due to injury.
    This is a smart, cheap move. With Gashkar and the other LBer not resigned, plus 2 safeties - we are thin on ST. Everybody calm down, we will still draft a safety.

    The definition of Ehhh.

    Another Andrew Gachkar signing. Alleged special teams player who will have little if any impact here. Waste of time and the defense still needs about 5 new starters.

    This offense deserves a better effort from our Front Office.

    He's not terrible and very good on special teams. It's a decent signing.

    He's so good, the Bills didn't want him, and nobody signed him during free agency until now.
