Black Friday and a big 'who cares' for a Bills fan...as the salary cap escalates which is causing a greater seperation amongst the big market and small market teams, this gap will get bigger and bigger and even though I ama Bills fan for some stupid reason I love this because so many NFL fans bitch like babies about baseball and $ and yet the same thing is starting to happen in the 'salary cap' and 'holier then thou' NFL, a league driven by fantasy football, gambling, beer, and tailgating with a prouct whos quality gets worse every year.

Bills owner Ralph Wilson pointed this out when that new CBA was approved by all the owners except him and the Bengals owner..and stupid f'in tools like Trey Wingo mocked Wilson because he was old and virtually calling him senile. But low and behold, turns out now that 2 years later SEVERAL owners regret signing the CBA and not taking more time to understand it further...well turns out Wingo you moron that Wilson is not just some senile owner.

Counting down the days till the Bills move......

Clements has already appeared to have signed with San Francisco. From Pro Football Talk:

CLEMENTS TO NINERS

A fan site known as 49erswebzone.com reports that Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports that the 49ers have signed or are in the process of signing cornerback Nate Clements.

However, no such story currently appears on Bengals.com.

With all that said, we have reason to believe that the report is on the money. Stay tuned.

Believe me i am not on pins and needles to hear about my team losing players and going through another 5-11 type season.

I hope more Bills players leave so that city realizes the truth about today's NFL and the team leaves.

Being a Dolphins fan, I obviously can't stand the Bills, and shed no tears for them losing the likes of a Nate Clements. But I don't want to see them move. Buffalo is a good football city and the fans are passionate. Plus, if they went to a place like LA, it would ruin the great rivalry the Dolphins and Bills have built.

Great thread.

Alot of changes this off-season. As a Ravens fan I hope we re-sign Jamal for a lower salary and use that savings on keeping Adalius Thomas.

I pray Billick actually grows a set and hires a REAL offensive coordinator.

Joey Porter would be a great pickup for the Dolphins. We run a 3-4 and Capers is his old d-coordinator. Imagine this 3-4 LB corps:

Jason Taylor
Zach Thomas
Channing Crowder
Joey Porter

My God. It would be glorious. Glorious. :hail:

Your D is getting OLD. But yeah, Porter would be a GREAT pick-up, especially with Capers.

Agreed, but his next choice was HOUSTON with his old coach.....that is a career ending decision.

We have some tread on the tires for sure. But it's still a damn solid defense. We are making a concsious effort to get younger along the line- we cut Kevin Carter today, and Dan Wilkinson should be soon to follow. And we're most likely going to pass on re-signing Keith Traylor. We have some young kids- Fred Evans, Rodrique Wright, and Manny Wright- looking to step in and get a shot. The secondary is still a ?. Definately the weak link of the Dolphins d right now.

The problem isn't the salary cap. Even at roughly $110M per team it is still less than the amount that each team gets just from TV money. The problem is owners who only care about maximizing profits without concern for the on field product.

If losman can ever escape the new Arizona Cardinals of the NFL, the soon to be Los Angeles Bills of Buffalo...he might have a chance.

Poor kid.

Here is a list of Top 50 Available NFL Free Agents per cbssportsline:

NOTE: Buffalo very close to landing #5 Derrick Dockery which would make me very happy:

Top 50

Man, it must be nice to be an agent for the players in this class -- even if it isn't a good one.

1. Nate Clements, CB, Buffalo Bills: The Bills would love to keep him, but he's on his way out. The value is here, but he will cost a bunch.

2. Eric Steinbach, G, Cincinnati Bengals: He's started 62 games in four years, which is a lot of experience for a player his age. He isn't a power player, which would mean he needs to go to a team that throws the ball as well as it runs it.

3. Kris Dielman, G, San Diego Chargers: He plays with an aggressive style that makes him good in the run game. He will get scooped up early in this period, maybe even the first day.

4. Adalius Thomas, DE-LB, Baltimore Ravens: He has wonderful athletic skills, but they have to be used correctly. He probably can't be a full-time defensive end. But somebody will pay out big bucks for him.

5. Derrick Dockery, G, Washington Redskins: He is a young player who is coming off his best season. He is strong and physical and is just now hitting his peak.

6. Dewayne White, DE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: With all the top pass rushers tagged with franchise tags, White will get a big-money deal. He is the right age (26) and played well in place of Simeon Rice last season.

7. Kevin Curtis, WR, St. Louis Rams: He's been a third receiver most of the time in St. Louis, but he has the one thing teams love: Deep speed. Look for Detroit to make a strong push.

8. Donte Stallworth, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: He has deep speed (averaging 19.1 per catch last season), but he has hard time staying on the field. He has 44 starts in five seasons, missing four games last season. He did have four 40-plus catches last season.

9. Ken Hamlin, S, Seattle Seahawks: This hard-hitting safety played 16 games in 2006 after suffering a serious head injury in a fight late in 2006. Teams will check his medical closely, but he didn't show any affects last season.

10. Tony Pashos, T, Baltimore Ravens: If a team is looking for a rising player on the offensive line, this guy is it. He played well at right tackle for the Ravens in 2006. (Signed by Jaguars, March 2)

11. Patrick Kerney, DE, Atlanta Falcons: At 30, he is getting up in the years. That's a concern. Plus, he's coming off a torn pectoral muscle. But he's a great teammate and he plays hard. With a shortage of pass rushers, he will get paid.

12. Daniel Graham, TE, New England Patriots: In a league where a lot of teams are searching for tight ends, Graham is bound to hit it big. He is a good player, but not a great one.

13. Leonard Davis, Arizona Cardinals: He has the tools to be a dominant player -- especially at guard -- but it just doesn't show up. Some team will be lured by the potential and give him a nice deal. It's risky.

14. Cato June, Indianapolis Colts: June is a run-and-chase linebacker who had a big 2005 season, but didn't play as well in 2006. The Colts would like to keep him, but it will be tough.

15. Joey Porter, LB, Pittsburgh Steelers: He isn't the player he was a few years ago. He didn't play that well in 2006, which is why the Steelers let him go. Plus, if they use more 4-3 under new coach Mike Tomlin, he doesn't fit.

16. Deon Grant, S, Jacksonville Jaguars: This rangy safety is getting up in the years, but he keeps his body in tip-top shape. He would prefer to return to the Jaguars, but only for the right money.

17. London Fletcher-Baker, LB, Buffalo Bills: He's getting up in the years, but he's still a solid middle linebacker. The Bills would like to re-sign him, but there is talk he has deals already lined up with other teams.

18. Luke Petitgout, T, New York Giants: He played well last season before going down with a fractured fibula. The Giants thought he was too expensive to keep around. Some team will pay him.

19. Drew Bennett, WR, Tennessee Titans He's never been a real speed guy, but he knows how to play the position. He will be 29 in August, so you have to wonder when he slows down some. He did average a career-best 16 yards per catch last season, which would mean not yet.

20. Shaun O'Hara, C, New York Giants: He came to the Giants as a free agent in 2000 and has played well. He isn't big, but he knows how to get the job done. He's feisty. (Re-signed by Giants, March 1)

21. Jon Stinchcomb, T, New Orleans Saints: After sitting his first three seasons, Stinchcomb started all 16 games last season. He isn't an overpowering player, but he played better than many expected last season.

22. Ian Scott, DT, Bears At 25, this is a guy teams in need of a defensive tackle should target. He opened the season as a starter, lost his job, then played well when Tommie Harris went down.

23. Robaire Smith, DT, Tennessee Titans: After leaving for Houston as a free agent three years ago, he retuned to the Titans and played well. He had 13 starts and played solid against the run.

24. Kawika Mitchell, LB, Kansas City Chiefs: He's a solid, young player who started all 16 games for the Chiefs last season. Mitchell might never be a star, but he can be a starter for some teams.

25. Justin Griffith, FB, Atlanta Falcons: He can block, catch it and run it when needed. He's one of the more underrated fullbacks in the league.

26. Jamal Lewis, RB, Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens released him this week, rather than pay him a roster bonus. They want him back, but he might test the market.

27. Dominic Rhodes, Indianapolis Colts: The Colts would like to keep him, but if the price gets high he is gone. Rhodes is a good backup, but you have to wonder if he can be a feature back.

28. Marc Colombo, T, Cowboys: He resurrected his career last season. He played well at right tackle for the Cowboys, who want him back.

29. Ashley Lelie, WR, Atlanta Falcons: He opted out of Atlanta after one season and will now test the market. He has big-play speed, and with the right team he can be an effective threat vertically in the passing game.

30. Kyle Brady, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars: He is the best blocking tight end in the league. He plays like a third tackle. But if a team is looking for a pass catcher, forget it.

31. Dennis Northcutt, WR, Cleveland Browns: He has the speed teams want, but he wasn't that productive last season. Word is he tired of the losing ways in Cleveland.

32. Ahman Green, RB, Green Bay Packers: Age is a concern here. But if he checks out medically, he can give a team two more years.

33. Nick Harper, Indianapolis Colts: At 32, his age is a concern. But he has been a solid starter for the Colts. But paying him top dollar could be risky at his age.

34. Cooper Carlise, G, Denver Broncos: Here's another starting guard on the market. He isn't as overpowering as guys like Dielman, but he can work in a Denver style of offense.

35. Jeff Garcia, QB, Philadelphia Eagles: He is a system quarterback who has to play in the West Coast offense. At 37, how much does he have left?

36. Jerramy Stevens, TE, Seattle Seahawks: I thought this kid would be a star when he came out. So far, it hasn't happened. But the ability is there.

37. Jordan Black, T, Kansas City Chiefs: It is a lean market for tackles, so he might get paid. Black has started the past two seasons, playing pretty well in 2006.

38. Reggie Kelly, TE, Cincinnati Bengals: He excels as a blocking tight end, which teams will look to get since there are few in the draft. He won't be a down-the-field pass catcher, but blocking is a valuable commodity.

39. Rod Hood, CB, Philadelphia Eagles: He has been a solid nickel back, but at 25 it might be time for him to get a look as a starter. If not, a team in need of a third corner should give him a look.

40. LaVar Arrington, LB, New York Giants: He played well for the Giants last season before getting hurt. The many injuries have teams concerned, which is why he's down this low.

41. Donnie Edwards, LB, Chargers: Yes, he's a productive player. But he is getting up in the years. At some point, it has to show.

42. Chris Brown, RB, Tennessee Titans: He played in only five games last season -- at one point listed as sitting out because of turf toe -- but is two years removed from a 1,000-yard season. He runs a little high for some teams' liking.

43. Brian Simmons, LB, Cincinnati Bengals: He was released this week for money reasons, but he can still play. He missed five games last season and he is 31.

44. Cosey Coleman, G, Cleveland Browns: He's another in a deep guard class. Coleman is 28, so he has some good years in front of him.

45. Joe Horn, WR, New Orleans Saints: Age is an issue, which is why he's on the market. Horn has slowed down some, which isn't good thing for a guy who isn't a blazing player anyway.

46. Ruben Brown, G, Chicago Bears: He's getting up in the years at 35, but he played at a high level last season. His toughness is big in the run game.

47. Napoleon Harris, LB, Minnesota Vikings: He played well in 2006, but the Vikings can't afford to bring him back. He will be remembered as part of the Randy Moss trade.

48. Michael Lewis, S, Philadelphia Eagles: He is a big hitter who was benched in 2006. But he has starting experience and he's only 26 years old.

49. Kelly Washington, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: He was bothered by a hamstring injury last season, but he has big-play ability. He is the fourth receiver with the Bengals, but could help a team not as deep.

50. Antonio Bryant, WR, San Francisco 49ers: He isn't the best teammate, and he has off-field issues, but he's a good player. Teams will have to decide if he's worth the risk.
