Marquez Valdes-Scantling signed with the Buffalo Bills this offseason for one year, and $2.25 million, all of it fully guaranteed. Many people believe that MVS is a lock to make the 53-man roster because of the money, but I'll just say that the dead cap money hit from trading Stefon Diggs didn't stop Brandon Beane from dealing him to the Texans. Could the Bills do the same with MVS? That depends on the other receivers on the team, and how they perform during training camp and the pre-season.

But one writer from Bleacher Report suggested the Bills could make the move to reunite MVS with his old quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. One major problem with this move is the fact that the Jets are a division rival, but then again, Beane shows during the draft, that he's not concerned with making moves with league rivals, if it benefits the team.

"The Bills brought back Khalil Shakir, signed Curtis Samuel and used a second-round pick on Keon Coleman. If Buffalo gets to the end of training camp and it doesn't look like Valdes-Scantling is poised to earn a prominent role, it could still save $1.1 million in cap space by trading him."

Another aspect of this situation, as Knox points out in his article, is that if Buffalo were to release MVS, they would forfeit the entire $2.25 million without realizing any savings on the salary cap. At least in a trade, they are only paying $1.125 million, while adding the other $1.1245 to the salary cap. The financial aspect of the deal is logical, but despite my reservations about MVS, he will probably secure a spot on the 53-man roster. However, it's crucial to understand that his inclusion is not guaranteed solely based on the contract value.
