AFC Notes: Browns, Taylor, Bryant

Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor has dislocated the pinky on his non-throwing hand, as Andrew Gribble of the Browns’ website tweets. While his left hand is bruised and sore, head coach Hue Jackson says “he’s going to be fine.”

    If the Bills somehow manage to reach the playoffs again there will be a lot of GMs scratching their heads. While the Steelers have carved out 53.4MM for their top three players, Buffalo is taking the budget approach, committing only 27MM to their top three.

    “Nine teams are spending more than $50MM per year on their top three players, [only three clubs] have made the playoffs last season.”

    This is why I’ve been screaming about these contracts. Too much money to too few people.

      I suspect most GMs would be quite satisfied to accept a 1 in 3 chance of reaching the playoffs. Some GMs would agree with you that a more balanced allocation of dollars is better but as far as success goes, I haven’t seen any data that conclusively proves one approach is significantly better than the other. If there were a magic formula then you can be sure everyone would be using it.
