If I was General Manager of the Buffalo Bills


I maybe one of the few people who truly loves the offseason as much as if not more at times then the regular season. I find myself at times simulating games on madden dynasties just so I can get to free agency and the draft. Although there are a lot of people out there who mock up or fake a draft and write about who they think should go where, there are very few articles and sites devoted to free agency and maybe a more important part resigning period. Now thanks to those crazy kids at fanspeak.com you can do both. They created the Manage the cap free agency simulator. This thing is amazingly fun and is still in its beta which means that soon we will get the full epic version which who knows what that will include.  I have to say as I ran through this several hundred times over the past weekend I couldn’t help myself I had to screen shot a few of my favorite periods I was able to finagle out. This was probably the best outcome I had out of all the simulations that I ran through. Honestly the only contract of extreme displeasure was the one owed to Hakeem Nicks. What this chart doesn’t show is that I had signed to only 20 percent guaranteed on that contract. His cap number seems a bit absurd but in reality he gives buffalo the big physical receiver we all thought(except doug marrone) we had in Mike Williams. Signed a lot of young talent to cap friendly deals that extend 3-6 years into the future. Also I sured up a majority of the holes in the Bills offense and defense with signings of Iupati, Connolly, McCourty, and Davis. Vernon Davis also reunites with his former OC Greg Roman and becomes the first truly dynamic Tight End the Bills have ever had. Also, Scott Chandler was cut with the news the Vernon Davis would be hitting the free agency market to give the Bills the most amount of cap room available. The Suh signing was the icing on the cake that allowed Mario Williams to move to OLB and stick Suh opposite Kyle Williams in the defense as the 5 technique defensive end and have Dareus playing nose. The Bills defense becomes one of the most feared units in the NFL with the additions of Suh and McCourty. Another late signing severally helped the team with RT Bryan Bulaga signing with the team very late in the free agency period. This allows new offensive line coach Aaron Kromer time to develop seventh round pick Seantrel Henderson while not throwing him and starting Quarterback EJ Manuel to the wolves. Also in this scenario Eric Wood is traded to Kansas City Chiefs for a 3rd and 7th round pick in the 2015 draft.
