Bills Notes: McCoy, Roman, Ryan

Did Bills players help influence the team’s decision to push out former offensive coordinator Greg Roman? LeSean McCoy seemed to be hinting at that yesterday. “They actually listen to the players. The whole thing with [Roman], they were very involved, which was cool,” McCoy said (Twitter link via Tom Martin of News 4).

Here’s more from Buffalo:

  • People within the Bills front office feel it’s unfair that Rex Ryan is on the hot seat while GM Doug Whaley is reportedly safe this offseason, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (video link). The Bills’ aggressive trade up for Sammy Watkins, the ill-advised extension for Marcell Dareus, and the team’s failure to identify a franchise quarterback have left the Bills with significant holes, they argue. Ryan is in his second season in Buffalo.
  • Will the Bills renegotiate Tyrod Taylor‘s contract this year to keep him? Mike Rodak of explains that Taylor would have leverage against such a move and wouldn’t be inclined to go along with it. If he reaches free agency, there will be multiple teams searching for a quarterback and it would probably behoove him to explore those options instead of returning to Buffalo on a discount.
  • Over the weekend, one report indicated that the Bills are preparing to move on from Ryan.

    I’m not a Rex Ryan guy by any means, but what exactly did people expect him to do in two seasons with the hand he’s been dealt? Fire Whaley. Keep Rex at least one more year. See if Tyrod will renegotiate. I don’t think he has as much leverage as Rodak thinks he does in his ESPN article. He says Taylor could land a deal comparable to Osweiler’s. Really? I don’t think teams will be jumping to sign an unproven qb to a lucrative deal after seeing what’s transpired in Houston. And we’ve actually seen multiple seasons’ worth of starts from Tyrod, unlike Osweiler.

    That’s why I think renegotiation is the best option. Tyrod is still the Bills best option, until they’re able to draft a qb who actually has franchise potential (i.e. not EJ Manuel). Whether Anthony Lynn is retained or not, the offense must become more balanced next season. Give Tyrod the opportunity to improve instead of capping him at 25 pass attempts.

    Taylor is a lot better than Houston qb get some defensive players that work in Rex defe

    Rex is supposed to a defensive guru but the Bills D that he inherited and ranked I believe 4th at the time is now a shadow of its former self. He needs to go.
