The Buffalo Bills had a decent NFL Draft this past weekend and now their general manager is looking to sign their star free agents to a bigger deal. According to Whaley, he feels “supremely confident” all three can fit under the 2017 cap and that the team isn’t prioritizing one over the others.
“They’re all the same,” Whaley said on WGR 550, via the team’s website. “We’re going to try to work as diligently as possible to get all three of those guys. This is where we want to get to. Have good players on our team and then keep them instead of going out into free agency. We’d like to use free agency for the value guys. So when you have potential stars that we’ve drafted or acquired and they’re on our roster now, why not throw the money at those guys?”
Bills better get Tyrod under contract, because right now they will have only EJ Manuel who they failed to pick up the option on and Cardale Jones who was a fourth round pick.
