he might not be around to find out ....and per John Clayton we didn't get Derrick Dockery cheap 7 years 49 million dollars with 16 mill in guarantees

Either way, he and Terrance Pennington will battle it out for the RT spot.

Wow. Personally, paying 7 mil per on paper for a guard is ridiculous. I thought that when the Vikings signed Steve Hutchinson last year, and think the same now.

Hopefully the aforementioned teams get their money's worth.

I like the Dockery signing. He is a good young player who can help out the Bills

Yeah, it doesn't make sense to pay Guards that much. Especially when the Saints plugged in Jahari Evans, a rookie 4th round pick, and he played exceptionally. Oh well. That is the market value after all.

The Buffalo Bills have really addressed thier offensive line this off-season. Marv Levy is old school, he has strengthened both the offensive line and defensive line since he's become the general manager (and I suspect he'll be drafting Amobi Okoye if given the chance).

Willis McGahee dances too much in the backfield for the Bills' taste, which his agent Drew Rosenhaus says is because the Bills haven't given him enough talent up front to block for him. Let's see how he does now, if he even remains with the team.

That's a pricey contract that the Bills penned for Dockery. Hopefully they get their money's worth.

The Bills are employing the cash to the cap system ....I'm pretty sure Dockerys contract is backloaded and 7 years for 16 mill guaranteed is pretty cheap actually a little over 2 mill a year...Plus unless his contract is severly front loaded our cash to the cap should still allow us to sign a couple more ....Speakin of WHICH

The Bills have also signed KR/PR Cortez Hankton to a multi year deal...I guess Marv didn't get his nap in today

Looks like the Vikings got Hutch at discount price since he is better than the OGs this year getting the same deal. This is actually making me not want Dielman unless he signs a lot smaller of a deal, which isn't likely. I'm just waiting on the Seahawks to sign Dielman to a 7/49 deal. That would be comical.

Schefter said that might likely happen, just as he said that the top guards would get Hutchinson money this year. I dismissed it at the time, thinking it wouldn't happen, but I apparently stand corrected.

This has made my day. I was really worried the Bills would sit back and do nothing. While I was really hoping for Steinbeck, I am more impressed that the Bills could sign 3 guys who not only improve their starting OL, but add great depth.

I don't expect them to do much more than add depth players. I hope they can find a deal for a LB and maybe a RB so the trade of McGahee can be made easier.

Thats some hefty price, there. But it needs to be done. No more addressing of the line will be needed. Dockery is a great player and while it was expensive it was a step we needed to take. I just wonder how much we have left now.

The left side of the Bills' line could really become something to watch, with Peters and Dockery hopefully staying healthy.

Great day to be a Bills fan, IMO.

We FINALLY actually addressed the o-line hard. You guys have no idea how long we have been trying to fix the o-line with cheap FA fixes that have failed miserably. I love all these signings and obviously this changes our draft strategy quite a bit.

There's no precursor to suggest that they won't. The line seems to take a slope downwards talent-wise the more you move to the right, but I am intrigued at how the right side competitions will fare out. I'm still a fan of Brad Butler.
