Sorry to ruin ur hopes but the Bills FO has been clearing cap space to resign Byrd (including by releasing his fellow starting safety George Wilson who is quite capable). Byrd is expected to get one of the larger contracts for a safety.

Well, that dream didn't last long. Thanks for that.

Elite players get better money. Even is this strange year. Was just hoping the market would allow us to offer him a fair deal. Would he take it? Probably not. But hey, a guy can dream. That is the one thing the wife hasn't taken yet. My ability to dream.

In that case. Wison is my new daydream. Canty and Wison in 2012/2013,

If there was anyway possible to clear enough money for him (and I think he would go for around 5 mil per), he would be my number one priority this offseason and I'd put him at S. After him, I would probably want Sean Smith, but I doubt we create enough space for either of them.

This is kinda funny.

I was screaming at the TV during the 09 draft for us to take Smith....we grabbed Sherrod Martin.

But wishfull thinking and speculation have nothing to do with the cap. Reality is for others to worry over. We are just a couple good deals from having some money to play with. Maybe not enough to sign Bowe or Woodson. But enough money to sign Canty and/or Byrd type players.

I would love to sign players like Byrd, Woodson, Canty, etc

It is just not going to happen. We have a hard road to unwind the cap mess we have.

I can take or leave a 36 year old Woodson, especially if the school of thought that he can be a situational-nickel type DB. We can sign Cap much cheaper.

This is the fundamental difference. Some see the cap as a hinderance, while others see it as easily fixable. Cut Gamble and we are even. Redo Gross and the rookies are taken care of. Maybe with some change to spare.

Redo Beast and Goodfrey and cut Nakamura and R. Edwards and we should have some money to play with. Maybe not elite type players. But we should be able to upgrade 3 maybe 4 positions through FA, and still have the draft to look forward to.

It may not all happen, or even some of it. Who knows? But if I can dream it, it can happen.

If he wants to play here at CB or S and we can make it work without hurting ourselves, I say we should go for it!

The difference is that you really do not understand the salary cap. If you think restructuring all if those large vet contracts "fixes" the issue you truly don't. By doing so, you are doing nothing but taking the current salary cap hell and pushing it out a season or two at the most. The cap hell we are in must be fixed for long term health...not short term gain and making our situation even worse long term .
