Worst FA move?
 
Right now, id say its langston walker. He is crap and he got a 5 year 25 mil deal...

Michael Lewis, 10$ Million guaranteed. He was benched last year for Sean Considine. Even when he made the Pro-Bowl, it was one of those 'how did he deserve that?' bids. At best, he is mediocre.

Langston Walker

5 Years 25 Million (10 Million Dollar Signing Bonus)

I like Langston and I wish him well but that contract is outrageous.

The saints not wanting Horn back, just completely classless after all that he did for that city and team. No way would they have gone as far as they did without his leadership. Dont know why Payton had such a problem with him locker-rooms need men like that.

Fletcher is over the Hill bad contract

OzTitan 03-03-2007 03:25 AM

They're all, as expected, over paid moves, but Walker is a total head scratcher, may as well have kept Mike Williams.

JoeMontainya 03-03-2007 03:27 AM

Is Mike Williams a FA? Surprised his name isnt floating around.

holyschmidt 03-03-2007 03:38 AM

That fullback Atlanta signed, whatever his name is.

He was last offseason and was signed by the Jags (and I am, of course, refering to the OT Mike Williams the Bills drafted a few years ago and not the Lions WR :)).

Langston Walker will do well in Buffalo. You can stamp that as a guarentee.

Oakland sucks and everyone that goes there will do, and has done, poorly.

Derrick Burgess.

Lewis is the most overpaid player of the year. He played horrible last year and got a pro bowl bid just cause of his reputation.

Well, it would be a complete 180. He's played terribly soft for as long as I can remember and was constantly getting beat at RT. As I said, he's basically a Mike Williams clone who didn't get drafted early.

NIN1984 03-03-2007 08:33 AM

Yeah Walker by far, Bills fans have no idea how bad he is.

but Dockery was a good pick up for Buffalo.

Splat 03-03-2007 08:42 AM

Pitt cutting Joey Porter was pretty bad.

weezer1195 03-03-2007 09:06 AM

Walker is awful. He is one of those players who passes the eyeball test but once he gets on the field just sucks it up. Deff a horrible move.

21ST 03-03-2007 09:24 AM

Its gotta be walker, he is just sorry all together

Why? Because he plays for your favorite team?

Number 10 03-03-2007 09:31 AM

I'm gonna go with Lewis getting $10 million in guaranteed. He has looked terrible the past couple years.

Pretty much. Suddenly he is a good player now that the Bills signed him. Walker sucks and will always suck. Bills fan just trying to make an excuse for him. That is all.

ricky bobby 03-03-2007 09:37 AM

Clements. 80 mil??

bernbabybern820 03-03-2007 09:57 AM

the contract is backloaded. Consider it a 4 year deal. i dont know for how much.

Space Ghost 03-03-2007 09:59 AM

It is definitely what we gave Langston Walker, that is terrible, unless of course he somehow turns into a pro-bowl player in Buffalo for some reason. Even scarier is that he might end up at guard and be paid that much cash.

BigDawg819 03-03-2007 10:03 AM

I've got to go with the amount of money these mid-tier free agents are being paid. This kind of free spending is reminds me of baseball monopoly money spending is bound to cause headaches down the road. I mean Steve Hutchinson got a huge contract and yet some complained that it was too much, and now Dockery is making more then him? Nate Clements is getting QB type of money? How did he become worth more then Champ Bailey and Chris McAlister? Ovie Mughelli is now worth more then Lorenzo Neal, and after a half year as the starting fullback? Also its mind boggling that money is getting tossed around willy nilly and we're not complaining about Daniel Snyder as the one responsible? It is a strange time to be a football fan...
