shone in the Buffalo Bills Mini Camp the first weekend, one of the best players on the team, cornerback Nate Clements, in his absence. However, the fact that Clement did not appear surprising, because he is not the provision of one year, which has to include being the franchise player signed bills. If Clements signed the franchise tag offer, which will earn $ 7,200,000 next season, but do not try that happen in the short term.
The reason Clemente has not signed his offer of 6 Super Bowl Champions jersey White jersey
one year, however, is that it is currently seeking a long term contract in line for the corner in the elite league, as the Denver Broncos All-Pro Champ Bailey. But, after a disappointing 2005 season in which Clemente regularly roasted by opposing receivers, the gain anything Bailey nearly seven years, 63 million dollar contract. But that has not prevented Clements sit at home and that his contract negotiations with the calculations essentially in a dead end. Not like the bills are not eager to give Clemente a long-term security of supply and it seems that the 26-year-old with an interest in the one-year contract on the table today. The best route for the Bills could this shop on the corner is the number 1 to see if a team is get into the task of the first round of interest in him. Teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at No. 23 overall, the 32nd New York Jets at No. 29 in general and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Choice all interested in talks with the Bills. The Bucs Ronde Barber is currently No. 1 corner, but be prepared to the 31-year-old All-Pro to reduce youth Clements. The same could be said of his No. 2 cornerback, 30, Brian Kelly. Corner in the past 30 years tends to be dangerous ground for teams that have dominant defenses. Although some of the age, as most are characterized by Ty Law, lost several steps. Young Clement would be a welcome addition to Monte Kiffin defense, unless he commits to long term. As regards the second team, the rival New York Jets, which appears in a desperate situation at cornerback. Today, the Jets two corners Justin Miller and David Barrett, but it is now in a position to a shutdown corner. Barrett statistics were excellent last season with five interceptions, but can be a liability in coverage. played as Miller, who last season in limited service to not contribute significantly to the high school. A duo of Clement and Barrett would be horrible, especially with Miller playing nickel.
Finally, the final selection in this year's first full year's champion of the Super Bowl, the Pittsburgh Steelers done. Strangely enough, the Steelers have a similar problem with the restricted free agent Ike Taylor as invoices are Clemente. Taylor refuses to sign RFA tender year because he wants long term. However, like Clement, Taylor has delusions of grandeur, because it's probably not a massive contract. Besides Taylor, the Steelers take solid 30-year veteran Desha Townsend, who would make a great tandem with Clemente.
Sure, the development of a business Clements for first-round pick would be a step in the Bills GM Marv Levy of the brightness, one should not necessarily expect to achieve. There are few wise as GM for the franchise tag a player and then swap to a high selection. Ironically, the former Steelers 6 Super Bowl Champions jersey
General Manager Tom Bills Donahoe in 2003 did he get a first round of the franchise player was given the unprecedented prices, Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum in the offseason, acquiring a first series of three-way connection franchise defensive end John Abraham.
Even when the Buffalo Bills could earn a great second round and a selection of mid Clements full year of much value. Why? Because bills must keep teams in their efforts to help rebuild, and will have difficulty maintaining Clements past this season anyway, unless the franchise for a second consecutive season.
Many claim that the loss of Clements leave a significant gap in secondary education bills, but actually not quite right in the cover 2 defense when the defensive line pressure on quarterback can get back otherwise. If commercial paper Clements and earn more takes, they could exist in the draft this year to build on their defensive line. It would be a good way to get Levy not be excluded.
