The news was first reported by Adam Schefter.Miller was drafted by Doug Whaley’s Bills in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He was immediately penciled in as the number-one right guard, staring 12 games in his rookie year. He started all 16 games in 2016 before being benched four games into 2017 under new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. Dennison loved his zone-blocking scheme, something that didn’t fit with Miller’s game. When Brian Daboll changed it back to a power scheme, also employed by the previous offensive coaching staff under Rex Ryan, Miller was back in business, starting 15 games in 2018.While we projected a modest contract for Miller on the free agent market White Eddie Yarbrough Jerseys , Miler signed a three-year, $16.5 million deal. We don’t know the specifics, but that’s a hefty pay increase for Miller. Guards with that much starting experience are getting paid!Most Bills fans would have been okay with Miller coming back on a team-friendly deal, but didn’t want to commit to him long-term.Head on over to Cincy Jungle for their take. Not long ago, Bills G.M. Brandon Beane insisted that running back LeSean McCoy was in the team’s plans. Now? Not.On Sunday, Beane met with the media for the first time since terminating McCoy’s contract.“I mean he’s probably a Hall of Fame player , right there at it and I think that’s a great fit for him,” Beane said regarding McCoy’s ability to quickly land on his feet in Kansas City. “Not knowing everything but knowing Coach Reid and I know Brett Veach, the G.M., and he had a past relationship. Wish him the best. He’s going into a team that, I know they have a lot of high expectations and I’m sure he’ll be a great addition to what they’re doing. We truly wish him the best, unless we play him.”In July Eddie Yarbrough Jerseys 2019 , Beane made it clear that McCoy was in the team’s plans. It’s still not clear what happened since then. Did McCoy’s performance dip? Did Devin Singletary show the Bills enough? Does Frank Gore have more in the tank than the Bills thought?Beane, in a Saturday media session that wasn’t videotaped or transcribed by the team, reportedly declined to explain why McCoy wasn’t asked to take a pay cut.“I don’t really want to get into it, but no,” Beane said, confirming that the Bills didn’t ask McCoy to take less. “We did check around with some teams. Again White Jordan Mills Jerseys , this gives him a chance to kind of choose his destination as well, which I think he’s earned that right as well.”He parlayed that right into a fresh start with the coach who drafted him on a team that is close to being a Super Bowl participant, and possibly a Super Bowl champion.
