Dockery got more money then Steinbach because Dockery is better. Steinbach can't run block but is excellent in pass blocking.
Dockery is a flat out mauler and is solid in pass protection. Seemed to be a consencious around the league that Dockery was a much better fit for most teams then Steinbach including Cleveland who signed Steinbach.
Buffalo now has arguably the best offensive line talent in the league. Putting it together is going to be the difficult part.
WHo cares how much they paid him. They improved their team and still have money to spend. The cap keeps going up every year. Teams have the room to pay large contracts. At the end of the day, the Bills made their Oline a stronger unit.
Dockery mite be a okay signing but that Langston Walker signing,come'on now Buffalo ddint u guys see how bad that oakland O-Line was with him in there,he played soo bad and now he gets this big of a contract....well may he soldify bills darring need
He goes into discussions, throws a number that even he knows is unrealistic in the equation and the Bills just jump at it, sign it and fax it through. I dont know if I could have kept a straight face if I was the agent involved...
