    The cap went up.

      Not enough for him to be signed to that contract. The million dollar question is why they paid him Hutch money, unbelievable.

        Steve Hutchinson, the best OG in football, is looking pretty good at 7 years $49 million. Just a year ago people were ripping the Vikes regarding how badly they overpaid.

          So there are reports that the contract is essentially 5 years for 23 Million.

            EVery year teams will over pay at a position. Bills have a lot of room and have to pay guys that much. Why else would you play in Buffalo? The Bills money isn't worth the same as the Broncos or Chargers money (as examples). Once the Bills start winning, they can lower their price because the player will want to play for a contender.

                He is way overrated for the kind of blings2 he is getting. The Skins were not going to offer that kind of money. I would say that his agent got him the money.

                  No he has 18 million in guarantees spread over 7 years, they are not going to pay him just $5 million dollars in salary. It means that they will take a hit against the cap of around $23 million in essence they will have paid him something close to $30 plus million.

                  He just isnt that good. A good deal would have been 5 years 25 million with say 10.5 guaranteed that is his worth.

                  Dock is a decent straight ahead blocker, but he cannot pull to save his life. Also if you delay the blitz on him look out it is a sack.

                  I give him a B grade as a player, but if you compare him to say Randy Thomas our other guard he just doesn't stand the comparison.

                    Not as bad as you guys make it sound. Bills have A LOT of cap room now, so they're frontloading the contract. He makes 23 of that 49 over the first 3 years. That means he makes only 26 million over the last four. Did they overpay? Yes, but so has everyone else. The cap went up, and so did price tags.

                        Kudos to Derrick and his family, he's doing Garland and LCHS proud. Would have been nice if he came to Dallas, but it looks like Buffalo made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

                          Dockery got more money then Steinbach because Dockery is better. Steinbach can't run block but is excellent in pass blocking.

                          Dockery is a flat out mauler and is solid in pass protection. Seemed to be a consencious around the league that Dockery was a much better fit for most teams then Steinbach including Cleveland who signed Steinbach.

                          Buffalo now has arguably the best offensive line talent in the league. Putting it together is going to be the difficult part.

                            worst deal they could have made with Dock. Just horrible.

                              Haha, right...try to explain Leonard Davis' 49 million to me?

                              I'd like to hear why this is such a horrible deal.

                                WHo cares how much they paid him. They improved their team and still have money to spend. The cap keeps going up every year. Teams have the room to pay large contracts. At the end of the day, the Bills made their Oline a stronger unit.
