View Full Version : Football Buffalo is free to take a QB in 2012

There has been some speculation that Buffalo wouldn't be in the race to take one of the top 3 QB's in the 2012 draft because they just made a big investment in Fitz.

Although, they'd be out a heft signing bonus and a big salary from this year, he can be released:

Good question. Mike Florio, my NBC partner, had a good note about the contract: The Bills have until the seventh day of the next league year, March 19, 2012, to exercise a clause in the contract that will activate the rest of the deal. To activate, the Bills pay him $5 million. If they don't pay, the contract is voided and the Bills owe him nothing ... but he's a free agent then.

Smart move by the Bills.

Fitzpatrick was NOT worth that contract.

He'll go to another team that is looking for a QB.

So we will have n - 1 teams needing a QB. Add to that Buffalo and we'd still be the same.

They'll have to decide before the April draft.

The Bills don't need to take a QB. They just need to increase their commitment to building a great team.

Umm if you think Fitz is a legit QB then your spotty credibility has taken yet another hit.

Maybe not, but there's plenty of other problems with that team and there's plenty of QBs around the league with contracts much larger than they're worth. I would imagine if Buffalo's that high on Fitzpatrick & gave him that kind of a contract, they'd give him some time to work it out.

Then again, he's been in the league long enough, they outta know what he can & can't do by now. And as was said earlier, he'll go somewhere where he can at least compete for a starting job. Either way, I don't know that this affects us much, considering I'm still not convinced we'll take a QB (God, I hope I'm wrong though).

Can't imagine that they'll be so quick to admit that mistake.
I think he'll get at least one more year to turn it around.

That's roughly equivalent to being the tallest midget.

Fitzmagic is, emphatically, not a $10M QB.

You did give LaDairis good advice to stay out of the Lounge, assuming LaDairis' goal was not to get all red and then banned...

Wonder how much of a cap hit they are going to take with the bonus in only the 2nd year of the contract.
