Joseph -- Elliott joins me now and I'm -- -- kind of re starting the conversation I was having at the beginning of the show joke and that is just what do you think the bills are gonna do. Within the next week about Ryan Fitzpatrick. It's. Quite the question meant everybody wants to know because. Let me inside they're the bill that's something that actually you heard it in terms of the quarterback position or. Or maybe maybe they go so. I think ultimately it will end up being a decision made within their you know I've heard the first. -- the first day or two of the region period. -- the pills are able to come to terms with what state quarterback like like -- -- more or they or trees game your first somebody. Brian order somebody's been stuck for now. All I think you know there's a chance that that's its stature could -- producing this final days and upload put it that doesn't happen and we get to. It's that time where. Where is it worked its tricks. Who's who roster bonus comes into play bad. In no way we could be talking a situation where perhaps the bills are trying to rework a contract. And in trying to restructure them so that that way there's the -- you provide some competition for the first sector and rookie if they ordered affluent -- You know. I think they know their decision I don't know. And that's as well -- -- decision actually it's if they sign somebody else one way or the other part. I don't know that. Is that that final call and sold -- -- those first couple days of free agency gets here so. It's so it's really just but went up at this point in my opinion. The ball the bonus is due to Fitzpatrick by by a week from today correct. Yeah I agree -- routine there -- -- I think they're they're all I thought it was the thirteenth of an operating unemployment is why I was fired up this today so. -- could be wrong I believe I read. Something. What are the very. An article on Yahoo! Sports that that the all seems so OK I don't know I I could be wrong. There -- some time from the time free agency begins and they can also begin negotiating before. Free agency opens at 4 o'clock next Tuesday right that's a new facet this -- by this weekend but any of those guys you mentioned -- they were interested in one of those guys. They could start talking to a guy feel about give an idea of whether they'll be able to sign him and then maybe make their move accordingly before they have to cough up three million -- right. Yes -- is going to be a very interesting. The lead up into free agency because. He seemed to go out to speak with the agent of the player starting -- the -- settled down a fluke and that there could be. NFL allowing. Seem to do that. You know nobody has -- that may be happy if some of the tampering. That that usually went on. You know week at the NFL come by and which which is normally what happened with swiftly to -- In -- -- even though it you don't ever look at reporter they'll never get anything like that. -- Even even if you know there are some thought that may be because of this. Legal tampering period. That and that's what that would restrict it. And in February in Indianapolis so. I think it's gonna be real interest payment because these teams can. The goat it would play your agent pick -- -- the player themselves but they can negotiate with the player agent. And really gauge their interest. And and and and they can do that right up until the second before free agency starts. And hopefully and recreate the picnic couple looks quote for quote that he could start talking to players go. It's yeah. I think it dynamic in the fact that you know if you had a -- Well a potential player that you want to join your laughter. And go to -- and say. Well lots of interest and are you hurt college that your client in the incoming Q marking -- -- -- we worker. Paid such and such about what we're trying to -- when he would make a lot. That could also -- in terms. Make -- make or some interest should. Interest in decision in teams potentially resigning or not exciting looked so the nation's oldest likely to -- toward -- -- I think. The way they're seeing their general manager. And -- a whole day. Use their pride will be the most interest in park and I get away for the weekend to kick off that and see the bad news Strickland. I hate at this point in this conversation to introduce another unknown at this what you just Butte what you -- said. About this there's legal tampering period that you tell you put it. And brought this to -- couldn't Fitz Patrick agent. Talked to other teams to gauge their interest in what they might wanna pay him. In lieu of agreeing to restructure and basically take a pretty big pay cut to stay in buffalo. I mean hit that they couldn't get that perhaps I don't know that they can happen -- he's he's he's not about your free agent. Right gluten is still technically not going to be here creator and put. You know and certainly you could try and I think it's -- get into this game text and so I believe you can try and -- -- If if you walk through you can try and eight net interest -- that part of that have to be enough. Mario little little try harder and -- would Joba stallion here is the bills are closing in on the start of free agency they've got a big decision to make with their but. Former starting quarterback I don't you know on the -- been the starter and they all three million bucks in the former roster bonus. -- Ryan Fitzpatrick Joseph. Here here's the thing about signing another guy and then sending -- on his way to ten million bucks still hits you on the cap course you want to give fits that money. Now you've got that ten in -- money and I don't know. Any of the names you mentioned Matt Moore warrior these guys are gonna command crazy money or anything but. I mean thick and got a couple million dollars a year senior you're adding more quarterback money to your roster by doing that which to me still. Increases the motivation for the bills to desire Fitzpatrick redoing his deal and taking less money Tuesday. Think is that and that that's correct and I think ultimately what they would like to do is still lower Fitzpatrick they'll -- And then you know it. Get to look more incurred. In you know tribal structure. Restructuring in the way may -- -- it would air BT. Last year or or something of that nature because that that ten million dollar. -- That we talked about is you know. The pro greater amount that the bill would have to that would have to there. Settle over in terms -- cap money. There's a through the final for the final five years now. I don't know if that's necessarily. The case where. Where because they chewed through roll over their money may be -- that kicked -- hit. That ten million. It terms vote. All of that body of the ideas that would happen if we cannot. In. You know it in other cases. -- their -- where that that ten million. You know that can be. It will push let it you know it can be pro later over the final five -- that they execute between thirteen usually have that sort. Already a bit in Yahoo! article I would I would leopard saying there's something that I haven't heard from a beautiful people like uplift. That they have that they might have read option to. That you -- and -- June 30 cut or something of that nature. Where it would pick them for three million this year and so and police suddenly next year so I. I don't know I don't necessarily know -- the -- Plays well with that with ten million to be out. CBA getting redone when he did might might be exposing. Something here -- for me like that. Hikes and all the way it used to work my understanding was this ten million was what's left of the key. Signing bonus that was a more ties over the life of the deal you release him before the life of the deal is up. That all smacks you in the face right away when you cut the guy and that -- responsible for that you have no options but if they've changed that. In this most recent CBA from the summer before last. Then -- then maybe there are some other ways for the bills to. To approach it. -- -- The way I understand it is between -- really have a choice split. I'm not sure that without the window if they would make -- to roll over that. You know nine point eight billion acting pro football talks that it was. In -- this year after. Should know at Belle looks that we did. Okay intimately -- but you know but I don't know that they that they really have to have bet a million this year. Don't think your understanding that you dirty your the situation if they ordered not do anything with it which I think is -- entirely. Unlikely. If the situation would pretty much be the same next year I mean it would be a little less because the bonus would've gotten ticked off for another year. But they're still would have they're still in a similar situation that money wise right. Well yeah and I think. With that after. Contract and there at the opening of the membership. Star freshman because at you know -- -- Speaking incorrectly here but with Fitzpatrick -- -- you know he does carry that -- -- absolutely. Rather -- cap hit. Look throughout Latin. He don't have another roster bonus due in in 2014. Another three million dollar rocker on the -- I'll pay it it it -- stayed the -- that they don't restructure the deal and and let's say they don't have another quarterback -- through the -- it's. It's the same situation next year and the cap number is. Well around the same. With the only thing that would go down is how should that they would have to vote to Fitzpatrick over the he's a deal with bill which. Then that being into the cap money which could end up being seven million dollar rather than the burden and that you would seem for this year. Yeah I'm -- I don't even. But you'll still even introducing that idea into the conversation occurs to me that is the longest of long shots that they just keep him on the roster at the number he's that. I just I I find it hard to believe of course they could do that you can't believe it will. -- are Joba -- the bills are less than a week out from free agency either around a week from having to give Ryan Fitzpatrick three million bucks. As a roster bonus Joseph. I started out today arriving here thinking that what they do with fits and you introduced the idea of of another veteran. Perhaps to replace Fitzpatrick wanted to move on and that of course is certainly possible but. I'm wondering if whatever they do on -- might not give you a really big clue and how they feel about their options in the draft in other words if they were caught Fitzpatrick. And just eat the ten million in just -- And maybe not sign another veteran. I think it would certainly tell you that they think they can find a guy who can compete right now with the -- Jackson for that job. Whereas if they keep them as a safeguard. It might be. To guard against maybe not getting a guy that they think can compete right away what do you think of. I think I think that that's pretty right. And I know that they've got a lot to pigeonhole themselves. I -- without quarterback position in the draft. You can't -- that guy that they deem important if there are -- eight. Overall it help or forty stick a little bit thick and the first round. Then you know all the time we've seen throughout the past three years that buddy nix didn't want to take quarterback you don't believe it -- See and you wanna kick gold back when he believes it to be truly product dies and this as such as the case with a well so I'm. And -- if they if they. Do and that's keeping Fitzpatrick on the roster I don't let -- -- think it's completely. Rule out anything. Oh record and in the throughout. If what if you pointed out if they go and the signing a guy if it. And make Fitzpatrick of the retroactive -- -- on the roster I think we're pretty good indication that somebody -- was going to be brought -- to compete. And and that it's not -- -- -- telomeres early on the other ones -- -- the pick until it. Yeah in that case maybe they even have to draft to. And alcohol like -- guys. What threat do they pick one and of course -- -- but I think -- they'll take to. But -- -- quarter -- first love that people pick one anyway. Yeah alright Joseph thank you very much for all this is always end as I told yesterday will be out all your. What real quick before you go arms are mentally it only for the whole -- a -- you're talking about dates. There's no chance bills or interest have been Darrell -- right. It would take. A lot more than I think the film he willing to get caught in terms of laughed -- -- himself. And I'm skeptic bit tired at the well because there and there are dire need for quarterback in the fact that like -- has -- in the last four year. But I think that that it's probably it will probably be another team that would go with robbery that. And speaking of cornerbacks what did you write about today WGR by fifty dot com. Yeah I wrote about all that the buying meat and quarterback and we are here at least six with three you know work you order fifteen of them. Through them and he's the guy that that has the size -- speed that. That he -- blog the other quarterback actually and they can command top dollar but I made it you know we. With free agency coming up indicate support against the bill like maybe making a run at a title like they're so. -- -- you can go out or that the bleach you have to -- All right Joseph thanks a lot -- to -- thanks. And -- Joba -- and -- really if we get ready for NFL free agency and of course later. The NFL draft. WGR by fifty dot com jolt was Kelly -- just on it he wrote a.
