And Joseph best Ilya. Is on the line with the lowdown on what the franchise tag being placed on your bird means to -- offseason plans -- good afternoon. All our rhetoric Hampshire man so. Any surprise to hear that the bills of -- bird. Absolutely not I mean I think -- simply looking at the 2013. Impending unrestricted free agent. You couldn't get burden and the amount -- and the amount of money. That you would have had to commit in 2012. Retrospect if they beat and it just made sense of being that it. What I would if I could tell in the year yeah last year it was going to be talked a government terms about they have long deal especially with. The league quite like I'll be free agency targeting beginning. You know increasingly brighter and -- -- -- -- to at least give the bills. Some time negotiate with and now there has been. It is at -- then determine whether or not it's been picked exclusive or not exclude the franchise tag the difference between the two is that. The non exclusive. Would -- Teams outside the -- an opportunity to negotiate. They negotiate with and then I have to talk -- But it excludes the creator would not here. It seemed that opportunities so that there's that -- stole -- That the uncovered at this point but no surprise whatsoever that perked up let us that he is totally work that. He might be the one of the you know I'll let it CJ Spiller last year he was the best player on the team and they could afford -- let him -- The the exclusive tag it's a team were to do that and and and bird left the bills chose not to match they get 21 round picks is that right. The first round picks in the interesting thing that if the team. Let's say they traded away their first round pick. This utility clearly their first round pick next year they would be able to do it because. You're -- you're owed 21 round draft picks you can't do you know. Input. The first round pick that you acquire when you run into that -- that be your own. First round draft -- sell them so that takes -- including equation and yeah it would be put OPEC. Anybody ever signed those guys to their enemy meant that -- that's that's -- -- -- good deterrent I think it meant. But it's a big price to -- for some the bigger guy that might be worked that part with the bigger guy you're the scene. These exclusive I think a little bit about the threat to expel. I'm not anticipating. -- but impressed in. In borrowed from other scenes. And that's an exclusive the exclusive because. To -- the topic is they awfully large price to pay forced BP well he's only going to be making some one round in six now. After the they're happy doing the article you will look at. Yeah I mean there's no there's no no once I mean you wouldn't want -- speak in such absolutes but I mean I just I'd be shocked if somebody went after him if he doesn't have the exclusive. Give -- at that given their compensation that is that's just nuts. -- -- -- -- WGR. -- bird gets to head with the franchise. Tag. By the bills they had until what Monday to make that decision they went ahead and just did today the first team out of the box to use the tag. You you started you described him -- maybe outside is still the best player on the bills. Is he. Who do you think outranks him and as far as safeties go in the NFL DO. While. Well. And to be perfectly honest. I have heard as you know right there of a couple of stakes in order to speak in the NFL and that might be -- -- -- You know I mean why don't -- a guy that's pretty good out -- Diego angle read a little bit over hyped at this point in his career. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- In -- it almost changed the game for the team yet. Here -- interception yet but it's forced fumble that you're even had a couple of them are after -- couple more that didn't help -- -- -- so. -- word to me when we're talking about a guy who's been written trying to go first. Well officially. Into that huge huge thing could have -- the way he's gonna cost them the -- -- instincts he has the -- the quarterbacks and the type -- plane making skills you have on the ball you don't typically get so -- the world but he inkling at all that the people and and he's become equal late run support so the meat -- right up there which was one of the best in the NFL and without seeing and seeing that seems to intimately. I just say he's within the two Mercury. Yeah hey Joseph do you -- your impression that he was really sort of interested in seeing what free agency would bring I characterize it that wager in the opening portion of the show when I don't wanna be Orleans. In saying that but that's my recollection is like he he sounded to me. As much as -- -- were called a big time bills freeagent sounding in the last few years like. Well to see Al ghosts I got and both of them are gonna gonna bear Wear and. Yeah I think I think he'd go that but I don't think it's important agent Eugene Parker. This taught that they would probably -- yet. This I think mark up the bill that -- is valued very highly. I'll -- Republican -- built drive and I think there are Smart enough to know that. That it was. Probably likely that he would give them credit I can't if they -- able to come to the long term deal. So this gives the bill -- a little -- they have -- that they have until July 15 to negotiate. A long term contract with the with. And if they -- completed by July 15 the only thing they can sign. Get title one year deal or peace signs -- as -- -- -- -- that six point nine point six million dollars. So. So it's it's worked the clock that but it does give them some more tired and if if they don't end up coming to a long term -- -- they can go through the same song and dance next recording fourteen. -- would make more money I believe them and then that the actual are kept group that that the actual franchise tag the -- But. Seem intent on quarterback for two consecutive season but it if they haven't thought for a thirty year that they can't do the central. OK -- and all of this information in case you did you needed filled out you wanna read it WGR -- PP dot com Joe's got a a story up with all of those details. I'm on the tag and and -- on the bills have to work on long term deal and all that stuff all right Joseph movement forward. Is this the end for -- -- featuring. It doesn't look that way is that I mean you can glare of the buffalo is just released a report or -- he talked and you are mutually little -- said. -- kind of in limbo they haven't even made an offer to him which. Is in no it's a little surprising at this point. You know -- until March 1 free agency years. Eleven days in 46 minutes away but ends. Emphasis. This is a situation where. -- street has been a constant on the offense replied but they probably nothing and inner battles as to. Old. Important little Petri is moving forward it will be -- tree guy they can see themselves spending 677. -- half million dollar per acknowledges. Something along the lines of what my commander on the open market because quite frankly car and the interior a lot of them have been giving them. A put -- -- -- look actually here. So that's something that they're that they're trying to analyze and I would assume that he you know he all but think about the applicability -- the production. You look at look at the guards are looking for the bills Gregor pick pick pick up all week. Mean he he he came out of nowhere you double trashy and they keep talking and they brought in it and now he's as solid starter for the team. Well placed the bowl is the garlic it will Petrie and it has worked at 60. You know anywhere from. Six to eight million not you can't short dark where you could probably draft pick the Specter -- well what are what would -- -- -- -- -- But it annually pay -- -- a billion dollars a year for the next four years so. But a lot of things to consider what we'll be treatment that they haven't talked with them just yet you think Billy urgent -- And you know I'm I been growing less and less optimistic. And by the they would put -- And it's because that's -- a huge hit. As to whether or not there yet the precise -- spotlight -- One thing that could be an indicator is that the pills pop up they release saying they -- signed up right car two contracts. And and in its patent that they're not playing really spoke against her in nearly triple what. He. Movie trivia there's not tell him Graeme in this in this but it bit that you mention that that Tim has got up at the Buffalo News website that they haven't talked this is that they haven't made an offer. Are just to be clear there so. There is that -- -- the the the money crunches on -- meaning they've created some holes on defense I think you know they need to get better there so they've released some veteran players try to free up money but. You know they got to spend some money to fill ovals holes linebackers or maybe another safety so that's all gonna cost -- dull and I wonder that's about the -- -- given the price tag. Airports a year away from free agency is that right. So like how much do you wanna spend on your interior linemen. You know that mom and bit but but the trick with what is that we all know I mean he's been. He's been snake bit. Injury wise -- -- tree is like you know -- tackle these plates batteries played everywhere he's been healthy and error. Gaming game out so a lot but I I would think would in the future. As in next offseason. And his impending free agency would be playing into the planned on what you wanna do it left guard. Absolutely and I think I threw that out there a couple days ago Q I mean. -- I think really he could you could look at that -- as -- the bill saying okay what you do to replace Kirkwood at center or a movie -- art. End is what it LP. He's seeing you to -- guy -- place and I mean he's someone that when you let go lineup they struggled with with the other senators in. And David -- was terrible. Look at your club well within their a couple of plays -- to -- -- -- -- lots of the year and so this is. The system. But. This could -- your career would absolutely. I mean there and they have to decide whether or not they want. They came a long term offer extra this year. It's also probably playing in the for -- much is it that they would be treatment here they might be sitting there as saying okay well what's coming up next year. Maybe we have to pick up here and and pick the guy that we think is more valuable tool to our team and in I think in I think what I think it's -- Google to place. A good center in the league as opposed to a -- And that's not taking any single -- -- -- -- for the carpet and I do think it's more easily replaceable on the draft. So when when you look at it that way in the fact that I mean by calculation -- -- -- out roughly the they have roughly 86 million dollars committed to 35 that the players and that's and that's not including. But the the the money that the have to. It it's because apple releasing helped these -- Wilson and the -- -- and it you know the the practice squad player that -- still currently under contract with -- look at -- this year earlier that stuff like nothing roughly 96 million dollar committed 35 dollars. And so there's they're that the credit crunch put some money here with -- -- and I think you know leading technical -- will be report I think absolutely it would be great. Right in the cab is going to be one point three did we hear that the other day. According to create port yeah. Aren't they had it on that a little while building a lot of holes what do you think go shopping what are you what what -- you -- -- be looking for linebackers safeties these -- guys -- got an opinion about. Some of these jet veterans that have been released Bart Scott. The safety whose names escape me right now -- -- -- you've got to -- to Peter Smith right. What are your thoughts on those guys. Well I think we'll probably go at -- safety in free agency just four. -- just because they need another body there. I think we'll probably end up. -- I think back could be like a second tier quarterbacks. Could be in play here helping -- that the guys required or anything like but I look at -- quarterback because. What they. -- realistic -- may have. Their -- -- the cover of quarterbacks. On this roster I mean Gilroy instructor rockers analog blocks outside -- until more and you know fully -- interest gets a look at the playing time last year they couldn't stay on the field so. I think it would have been there I think probably -- lower the linebackers and a topic Huckabee expending any -- including this discrete period. Probably looked -- bit. You know if you look at. Pick it up first second -- guy one of these positions but I don't think we'll be seeing anything like that being of the derby -- -- -- this year. Our children job meant they Q and will thought the Hampshire next week as we get -- into this primer for free agency which is as you said eleven. Eleven days and -- long what are we would like you're elements in our clock going all right Joseph thank you. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- WGR 550 dot com Adori confined his story on the franchise tag being placed on safety jurors' verdict.
