The Buffalo Bills Have Holes To Fill All Over Their Offensiv - Sport

Left tackle Dion Dawkins and center Russell Bodine were sub-par in 2018 while rookie Wyatt Teller was underwhelming. The bigger problem comes at right guard and right tackle Ed Oliver Buffalo Bills Jersey , where John Miller and Jordan Mills are both free agents.Miller has a strange journey so far in his NFL career. He started 28 games over his first two NFL seasons, emerging from the 2015 NFL Draft to become the opening-day starter. Then he was relegated to the bench during his third season when Sean McDermott became the Bills head coach. Under offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, Miller’s skill set fell out of favor. After Dennison was fired, he was re-inserted into the starting lineup under coordinator Brian Daboll.So where exactly does he stand heading into free agency? Should he be considered a starter? A depth player?Comparable contractsMichael SchofieldLos Angeles ChargersSigned a two-year, $5 million contract in 2018Schofield didn’t start his first game until his second season, and began his career at tackle.Then he flipped inside to guard during his third season. He was waived by the Denver Broncos prior to his fourth season, but landed with the Los Angeles Chargers. He started five games at tackle in 2017 before they re-signed him on his current two-year deal to be their right guard.Like Miller, he fell out of favor for a while and dealt with setbacks. He’s a borderline starter/reserve player, or at least he was when he signed, and he was about the same age as Miller. He has the ability to swing out to tackle, though, so that adds some value.Joe LooneyDallas CowboysSigned a two-year Buffalo Bills Jersey 2019 , $2.1 million contract in 2018Following his rookie contract, Looney signed with the Dallas Cowboys as a depth option on their offensive line, starting just three games in two seasons. He re-signed in Dallas following the 2017 season to backup money but ended up being their starting center in 2018. He had fewer career starts than Miller when he signed his current deal.Billy TurnerDenver BroncosSigned a one-year, $2 million contract in 2018Turner started 14 games for the Miami Dolphins in 2015 and 2016 before being released and claimed by the Denver Broncos. He played in just one game for them in 2017 before re-signing. He started 11 games in 2018 at guard and tackle, filling in after injuries. He is what Mile High Report called a “serviceable guard.”Contract ProjectionIf I’m the Bills, I offer Miller Vlad Ducasse money because I’m probably only keeping one of them around. Ducasse is set to make $2 million in 2019, the final year of his contract. That number is mostly in line with the other contracts listed above, which value marginal starting guards at just over $2 million per season.Two years, $4.8 million including $500,000 signing bonus2019Pro-rated signing bonus: $250,000Salary: $2 millionCap hit: $2.25 million2020Pro-rated signing bonus: $250,000Salary: $2.3 millionCap hit: $2.55 million ORCHARD PARK Color Rush Ed Oliver Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — While leading the Buffalo Bills to a second straight win, it sounds as if rookie quarterback Josh Allen might have made a positive impression on one of his harshest critics.After he was reminded this week of how Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey once referred to him as "trash," Allen was making his way off the field following a 24-21 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday when he was tapped him on the back. Allen turned to see Ramsey with his hand outstretched."He just shook my hand and said, ‘Good job,'" Allen said. "He's an ultimate competitor just like myself, and maybe it's a respect thing. I'm not really sure," he added. "But I appreciate that, and it takes a big man to do that."Showing few signs of the sprained right elbow that sidelined him the past five weeks, Allen completed a 75-yard touchdown pass to Robert Foster. Then the 22-year-old Allen punctuated his return by posing in the end zone with his biceps flexed after breaking two tackles and scoring the go-ahead touchdown on a 14-yard run at the start of the fourth quarter."I love the fire. He personifies Buffalo, right? He's a hard worker, blue-collar kid, and loves to compete Youth Ed Oliver Jersey ," coach Sean McDermott said. "He's still so young, so again, let's manage expectations. It was a good start for him."Ramsey credited Allen for leading the Bills to the victory, but didn't exactly take back the comments he made about the quarterback in a story published in GQ magazine in August."It doesn't matter what I said. I'm sure that's really what he was thinking," Ramsey said. "You can have opinions, but it's about what you go out there and do. And what he did was go out there for his team and get a win."Allen was far from perfect while exhibiting some of the inconsistency he showed while going 2-3 before he got hurt in a 20-13 loss at Houston on Oct. 14. He finished 8 of 19 for 160 yards, and his touchdown to Foster was the longest completion by a Bills quarterback since Week 2 of the 2016 season.Allen also had a team-leading 99 yards rushing to set a franchise record for quarterbacks.The Bills finished with 327 yards of offense for their second-best total this season and their top total with Allen at quarterback. He also didn't turn the ball over, after throwing five interceptions and losing a fumble in his previous six appearances.It was the type of development McDermott wanted to see from Allen. He started the rookie ahead of journeyman Matt Barkley, who led Buffalo to a 41-10 win over the New York Jets before the Bills' bye week.The Bills invested plenty into Allen by trading up five spots to select him seventh overall — the highest position in the draft order Buffalo has ever chosen a quarterback."It was a good start for him," McDermott added. "That's a heck of a defense out there."Allen set up Buffalo's first touchdown drive — a 6-yard run by Isaiah McKenzie — with a 32-yard pass to Kelvin Benjamin, who was being covered by Ramsey.The Bills then scored on their next possession on Allen's pass to Foster. Standing in the pocket, with pass-rushers Yannick Ngakoue and Dawuane Smoot closing in on him Womens Ed Oliver Jersey , Allen found Foster wide open up the right sideline.Allen didn't get to see the completion because he was hit just as he released the pass."Whether I'm standing up or laying down on the ground, a touchdown is a touchdown and that feeling won't change," he said. "It was awesome."Bills safety Jordan Poyer was impressed by what he saw from Allen."Jalen can say whatever he wants to say about Josh, but Josh came in there and handled that defense today," Poyer said.Allen played down any hint of bitterness he might hold against Ramsey."There was a lot of trash-talking before and after, but ultimately my job is to go out there and help this team win football games," he said.
