Losers

Baltimore Ravens

Not only do we let Adalius go but we also let our starting FB and up and coming star Mughelli go, but we also let our RT Pashos go, cut a great character guy and a very good lineman in Edwin Mulitalo, we also lost Jamal Lewis which is gonna hurt and hurt double since he stays in our division, and lost a good DL rotational guy in Aubrayo Franklin. So how do we make up for those moves, well we give Jarret Johnson a deal he should never get, we bring back a RB who couldn't stay healthy if his life depended on it, and then trade away 3 picks for an overrated piece of trash RB in McGahee, we are by far the #1 losers of free agency.

In response to the thread reguarding if the bills are the biggest losers (which was locked)...

Quote:
So far they have lost McGahee, Fletcher, Clements...

Its going to be very hard to fix that through the draft, does this make the Bills the biggest loser thus far in the offseason?
First of all, do some research. The bills didn't lose Mcgahee or fletcher. They let fletcher walk because he was unsuccesful in buffalo's new scheme. They traded mcgahee because they were sick of him. They can draft a LB in round one, a RB and round 2 (willis and bush) and their problems fixed.

Clements however, is a different story. He was a good player, but that contract was crazy. Also, in the bills scheme CB play isn't an important factor, you can get by with average CBs.

Bills signed 2 new starters to their line (both of which will play guard), and are set to have another steller draft. They are winners.

I think it's a bit early to be calling teams winners and losers. It may turn out that the winners are actually the teams that didn't go paying 80 mill to a overrated corner, or 49 million to a fat lazy LT. This free agent crop was weak, and i'm shocked that they recieved such large contracts. Imagine if Briggs or Samuel hit the market?

Its easier said than done, sure Bills can go draft Willis and Bush but that doesn’t mean the holes have been patched, them players have to pan out first.

Its going to be interesting to see what Buffalo does

Haha...nice that you can predict they are set to have a stellar draft before it's even happened.

IF being set to have a stellar draft is criteria for having a good offseason, then everyone is a winner. Nobdy here thinks there team is set to have a bad draft.

Besides any team tht gives Derreck Dockery a 7 years 49 million dollar contract is not a winner.

A refreshing change for the Giants. The incompetent Ernie Accorsi is no longer there.

NJX You didn't like the signing of Travis Henry? I mean Mike Bell has yet to show he can be a starting NFL running back, and theres a very slim chance we could get Marshawn in the draft.

I'd say the Falcons are winners. We didn't overpay for a DE on the decline (Kerney), overpayed for a big need in a bruising fullback (Mughelli), cut Hartwell, Reese, and Lehr, replaced Reese with Wilkins as a ST ace and backup LB, signed a CB for depth (Sanders), and got a veteran WR who can still play and mentor (Horn).
