Re-Sign Richie Incognito, G: 3 years, $15.75 million
As you might be able to tell, I don’t like paying old guys.
Incognito is 33 so it kind of baffles me that the Bills think he’ll play out this contract at a $5 mil/year playing level.
He was however, according to Pro Football Focus, the best available pure guard based on 1097 snaps last season.
He should continue a high level of play next year, so if the guaranteed number is low and front loaded, I could potentially like this contract a lot more.
Re-Sign Cordy Glenn, LT: 1 year, $13.7 million, fully guaranteed (franchise tag)
Glenn is among the top left tackles in the league and just 26 years old. I’d be surprised if the Bills don’t work out a long-term deal before too long.
He should be a cornerstone of their offense for years to come, protecting QB Tyrod Taylor, or whoever comes next.
As far as franchise tag deals go, the one for left tackles is pretty extreme, and I’d like it better if the Bills work out a longer deal to spread out the cap hit.
