Inside The Bills

Greer says no offer yet

Bills free agent to be Jabari Greer was quoted by ESPN’s Tim Graham in an interview as saying he has not yet been presented with a contract offer by the Bills.

“I’m just waiting for Buffalo to approach me with an offer, and once they do I’ll consider it and go from there,” Greer told Graham. “I want to see what they’re looking for for their future of the franchise.”

Presumably the front office is already putting the final touches on their plans for free agency, which obviously includes their own free agents. It will be an interesting decision that Buffalo is faced with. Greer’s contract is up in a month and Terrence McGee’s deal will be up a year from now.

With the current market price for quality cornerbacks high, and heavily invested in Leodis McKelvin, it’s uncertain that the Bills could afford to sign both Greer and McGee to long term extensions. Of course if in fact no new labor deal is reached and the salary cap disappears that could change everything. But Buffalo’s front office is always fiscally responsible, so in all likelihood they’ll hitch their wagon to one or the other making for a very interesting debate.

Who do you think is more valuable to the team?
