"Serious" chance D-Will gets traded

139 posts in this topic

There is a lot of confusion and incorrect info in this thread regarding trading DWill and it's impact on our cap, so let's try to clear that up.

1) If we trade DWill this year, $9.6 million (unallocated bonus) minus the remainder of his salary for this year (approx $2,5 million) hits our books immediately. So call it a net impact of about $7 million this year.

2) He would then be off our books entirely. There would be no dead money to carry over.

Hopefully this clears up that question.

Darin gantt says it would hit in 13

This thread can't be serious. Viable =/= serious. Just means possible. Haven't we already gotten confirmation that he will not be traded?

And I say he's wrong, unless the info listed on spotrac which everyone uses is totally off.

Edit: I was wrong, and Gantt was right. When a player is traded mid-year, the unallocated bonus hits the following year. My apologies.

JStew- more physical tough back, better pass blocker, I disagree with the notion that he has better hands (but it seems that most really believe this to be true), slower of the two, more injury prone of the two

There are two misconceptions here.

1) DWill has missed much more time than Stew. Stew is not at all injury prone.

2) Stew is one of the league's worst pass blockers. So no, he is not the better pass blocker.

DW's fall from hero contract to trade bait is the fastest I can remember. Breathtaking fast.

a 4th and a 5th. Terrible trade by the Bills.. A week and half after being traded to the Seahawks Lynch went off for 3 td's against you guessed it the Carolina Panthers.

I don't think it was a bad trade. Buffalo was tired of Lynch and his off the field issues.

to everyone who say Deangelo has a huge contract- while big- its frontloaded, plus if we take the cap hit it really won't be that expensive for the team we trade to. Furthermore, while 29 Deangelo has spent his entire career splitting careers with someone. He is more like a 26 year old back in my mind.

I really hope we don't screw the pooch and trade him for peanuts. I won't lie, I wish Hurney was still here to oversee this one...

i think the question is in these arguments is this....

if a contending Superbowl contender that needs a good running back to have a legit shot at the Lombardi, what are they willing to trade

many teams are weak at RB giants, cowboys, Detroit, packers, NE, chargers that would greatly improve there chances in playoff games if they had D-Will . What are those teams willing to trade away to have a far better off chance of winning the Superbowl in the next 3 years(D Will's lifespan in the NFL most likely). This is where it would be most logical to see D Will get traded to.

let the biding war begin
