Draft And Signings Highlight Busy Week
The other big news also happened over the weekend as the Bills re-signed two of their own unrestricted free agents. Shawn Price re-signed on Saturday and Steve Christie came to terms on Sunday. Our Take: These were good signings since Christie has been a very consistent kicker in the bad weather in Buffalo. Price is a solid veteran and was signed when they realized they weren't getting a stud tackle in the draft. Both signings are for low money and are no-brainers.
The club also signed free agent OL Kris Farris on Thursday. Farris has missed the past two seasons because of a stress fracture in his foot. He was a third round pick of the Steelers in the 1999 draft. Our Take: Farris is for the league minimum so it is worth a shot since he has a lot of talent. If he doesn't have it anymore they will cut him, if he does, he may end up starting at right tackle.
In other free agent news two ex-Bills found new teams. Unrestricted free agent Donovan Greer signed with Washington, while Marcus Spriggs reached a deal with Miami. Our Take: Greer wasn't in the Bills plans this year and since they drafted Clements he won't be missed despite being a serviceable player over the last two years. Spriggs is not the best conditioned athlete so he doesn't fit in with the new Bills.
