The Buffalo Bills have been winning, but how much room is there for improvement?
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
That line is the exact opposite of how general managers and coaches should run their teams. There are some smart people in this league, and if you’re not attempting to constantly evolve your team and get better, then you’ll be left behind.
Bill Belichick recently commented on how every single year is different, and how his team has never been the same week to week.
Players come and go and are forced to learn new systems, but if you don’t change it, then your system will get figured out very quickly.
There are a lot of NFL teams that can use the services of a talented offensive tackle, no matter the price.
The Seahawks are scrambling to piece an offensive line together. The organization was rumored to have been shopping Jimmy Graham around for offensive linemen. The exact thing they gave away in order to get the tight end.
The Washington Redskins’ offensive line is absolutely reshuffled from week one. The injury bug has not been kind to them. I know what you’re thinking. If the Buffalo Bills ship away their top-dollar offensive tackle then won’t we be in the same position as these teams?
The Buffalo Bills are deep at the offensive tackle position. This depth includes Dion Dawkins, Jordan Mills, Conor McDermott, and Seantrel Henderson.
Cordy Glenn is the Bills’ most expensive player that they have right now, and the new regime of Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott loves to save money.
theringer.com gave their take on the subject:
"“In 69 snaps this year, Glenn has given up just one sack and three pressures, per Pro Football Focus—and on 365 pass-block snaps last season, the veteran surrendered just 17 total pressures (hits, sacks, hurries), third fewest among tackles that played at least 50 percent of their team’s snaps. The Seahawks would have to move some money around to fit him under their salary cap (they have just $2.2 million in cap space, and Glenn makes $9 million in base salary this year), but Seattle needs to do a better job of protecting Russell Wilson if it’s going to have a shot at another Super Bowl.”"
The ability to trade Cordy Glenn opens up so many possibilities for this team. Let’s just hope management makes the right move.
