Will the Bills ever address the O-line woes? (1 Viewer)

Bills homers whats the buzz?? I am a McGahee owner wondering if the Bills will finally address that awful offensive line this year. I no they have needed to for the last 2-3 years and they havent.. Would be nice to see them address this this offseason and draft..... I know there's a few big namers around in FA and several good linemen in the draft... I got so frustrated seeing Willis get hit right after he got the ball last year.... he didnt even have a chance to get any momentum built up.

I'll answer this myself just in case other McGahee owners are looking. Looks like they at least are acknowledging there is a problem.

G Wells Tendered Offer AP - [Full Article] The Buffalo Bills tendered an offer sheet to Arizona Cardinals starting LG Reggie Wells, a restricted free agent, the Bills announced Friday. According to the Buffalo News, the five-year deal is worth $17.6 million, including a $3 million signing bonus and a $2 million roster bonus. The Cardinals are believed to be about $14 million under the $102 million salary cap, so they have the space to match the offer. They have seven days to decide. If they decline to match, they'll receive a sixth-round pick from Buffalo in return.

As a Bills fan, I do think that the Bills need to address the O-Line. However, I also think that McGahee is overrated. He doesn't do a very good job at finding his own holes as quickly as he needs to in order to really succeed. I used to think that if only we had a great O-Line he would be a superstar. Now I think that he really only thrives in an environment with lots of open spaces, which doesn't occur in the NFL very often.

Bills have tried to address it the last couple of years, but the guys they brought in last year turned out to be stiffs. 2 years ago they brought in a well-respected o line coach, but the unit had a lot of injuries early in the year. The year before that they used the # 4 pick in the draft to address the o line, but he turned out to be a major bust.

So, I'd say they have been trying to address the o line, but without any success.

One thing they could have done was to find a way to keep Jennings, but they also should have kept Pat Williams on the d line that off season.

I think Arizona will mtch the offer to Wells so that won't be the answer.

I'm with you for everything except Jennings. The Bills were smart to let him go for the money he wanted (and got). He's a pretty good player when healthy, but was hurt way too much. And of course he promptly got hurt last season as well. That and all of the holding calls against him... :wall: I'd be lying if I didn't say I have been disappointed in their moves addressing the O-line so far this offseason. Basically their moves have amounted to cutting Williams and allowing Teague to go. Cutting Williams was the right move IMO, but they still haven't made any moves to replace him yet. And I guess they just plan on Duke to be their starting Center next season.

The linemen signed so far have gotten pretty big money so I guess they're trying to build through the draft and grab some cheap veteran talent as depth. I'm not that upset that they haven't made any big FA moves for linemen because most of those guys are short term solutions at best with their age. And it wasn't like they had any shot at Bentley. So we'll see.

2 words...

Bennie freakin' Anderson

OK...guess that was 3

VERY relieved he signed w/you guys last off season, for 3yrs/$15M....we signed Kedrick Vincent to replace him, which he did...

...he sux just as bad!

but @ 3yrs/$5M, Vincent is only 1/3 the mistake fat-### Bennie was

Buff/Balt could some O-line help, to be sure!

:lmao: Levy seems like hes trying to get fired before the season starts. What a ridiculous amount of money for a below average guard.
