Womens Kelvin Benjamin Jersey
In preparing to open their 46th season in Orchard Park Youth Jason Croom Jersey , New York, this weekend, the Buffalo Bills are setting their sights on longer-term plans in determining whether to renovate their existing facility or build a new one.Bills co-owner Kim Pegula told The Associated Press both options are on the table, though formal discussions won't begin until after New York's gubernatorial race is settled in November."That makes sense, and regardless of who wins or doesn't win, that would be for us the prudent thing to do," Pegula said during a wide-ranging interview Wednesday, four days before the Bills' home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers. "There's no reason to cause a lot of distractions right now."Gov. Andrew Cuomo, whose administration played a role in negotiating the team's current lease in 2012, is running for a third term, and being challenged by Cynthia Nixon in the Democratic primary. Marcus Molinaro is the Republican candidate.Pegula reiterated while there have been internal discussions regarding the future of their current home, New Era Field, no decisions have been made, and the team has not yet hired a consultant to conduct a feasibility study.The clock, however, is ticking, with Pegula saying she would like to have the framework of a plan in place before the current lease expires in the summer of 2023."Oh, I certainly think we're going to be on our way or at least knowing a direction or a path by the time the lease is up," she said."I don't want to put a time frame on it. I know that people here want the team to stay here," Pegula added. "They all know something needs to be done. To what extent? No one yet has come out and said what it is."The next step becomes meeting with state and local officials to determine how much public money might be available to fund an expensive project no matter which option the Bills choose. A state-funded study in 2014 estimated the next renovations at New Era Field would cost $540 million, including structural improvements and rebuilding the stadium's third deck. A new facility would cost almost double, depending on location, whether it features a roof, and how much infrastructure upgrades — expanded roads, access ramps, public transportation — might be necessary.The state and county have a stake in New Era Field, which opened in 1973. Nearly $227 million of taxpayer money was committed to renovations and annual capital and game-day expenses over the current 10-year lease. The Bills' share was $35.455 million, not including the $18 million the team spent on upgrading club seats this year.The Bills are the NFL's only New York-based team and estimated to generate $20 million in annual tax revenue in 2012.Pegula understands cost is an issue and takes into account how the Bills are based in one of the NFL's smallest markets, and feature some of the league's lowest average ticket prices. As a result, she said it's not feasible to propose building a new stadium on the grand scale the Rams are erecting in Los Angeles."We don't know where it's going to be Womens Kelvin Benjamin Jersey , how much, how little, who's going to the partners, where we can even get to as a marketplace," Pegula said, noting she's not sure whether seat licensing fees can work in Buffalo."All these questions we haven't figured out. But certainly, we're going to do everything we can on our side to provide, upgrade and bring about a much more progressive fan experience," Pegula said. "Eventually, one answer will rise to the top. But certainly there's going to be multiple options out there."Six recently cut players the Buffalo Bills should look to for depth If the Buffalo Bills poor preseason performances have taught fans anything, it’s that the team lacks depth in certain key areas. Those areas include the offensive line, wide receiver and, to a lesser extent, linebacker. Now that the NFL’s cut-down day has come and gone, there will reportedly be about 1,184 free agents for general manager Brandon Beane to pick from. Here are six players he should consider. Korey Robertson, WRRobertson was quite well-thought-of coming into the 2018 NFL Draft even though, due to his lack of route-running polish and athleticism, he ultimately ended up as an undrafted free agent. Regardless, the Minnesota Vikings thought so highly of him that they gave him a $50,000 bonus to sign with them after the draft was over. The Viking’s enviable depth at the wide receiver position however, kept Robertson from being able to stand out during training camp or the preseason. In Buffalo, the rookie faces much less competition and would stand a much better chance of tabbing himself as the dependable possession receiver the team currently lacks.Antonio Garcia, OTThe New England Patriots drafted Antonio Garcia in the third round of the 2017 draft with the expectation that he would be a developmental player that would one day replace veteran Nate Solder at left tackle. Unfortunately, after detecting blood clots in his lungs during his rookie year and dealing with the weight fluctuations inherent in his recovery, Garcia was never healthy enough to be medically cleared by the Patriots, who quickly parted ways with him this summer. The Jets then signed him, but there wasn’t enough time for Garcia to get back into football shape so the Jets were also forced to cut him. The Bills, on the other hand, might have the flexibility to stash Garcia on their roster Youth Matt Milano Jersey , allowing him time to recover. This could end up yielding a backup tackle, if not a starter, in the long run. Hau’oli Kikaha, DE/OLBKikaha is another player with a high draft pedigree. A second round pick by New Orleans in 2015, he flashed as a rookie but the very next year tore his ACL. That sapped him of much of his speed, and with other capable option on their roster, the Saints were forced to cut bait. For the Bills, Kikaha doesn’t have the size or the pass rush ability to be a full-time defensive end in this defense, but might fit as a backup to Lorenzo Alexander at SAM linebacker. Veteran journeyman Deon Lacey is currently in that role, but he had a very disappointing preseason.Kevin Minter, ILBThe Bills cut recent sixth round pick Tanner Vallejo, leaving Julian Stanford as the sole backup at inside linebacker. With only 19 tackles and few starts in his career, Stanford is hardly someone the team can rely on. Minter is a former second round pick and starter for the Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals. Injuries and suspensions have limited his impact on the field and he was eventually signed by the Jets for a pittance until he was cut on Friday. Though he wouldn’t offer much upside in coverage, the 6’0”, 246 pound veteran linebacker still can be a force against run, something the Bills struggled against last year, and would provide a veteran voice in the locker room for rookie Tremaine Edmunds.Nico Siragusa, OGSimilar to Garcia, Siragusa suffered a devastating injury his rookie year, tearing his ACL, MCL and PCL. A fourth round pick in 2017, Siragusa is a six-foot-four, 319-pound run blocking tank. He likely needs some additional time to recover, but the Bills need an influx of talent along the interior of the offensive line and Siragusa would be a great fit for the type of power run team the Bills are looking to become. Breshad Perriman, WRPerriman was the 26th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens and was supposed to be the team’s new long-term deep threat. Injuries and ineffectiveness limited his usage, and after the Ravens went out and signed several quality veterans, Perriman ran out of chances. Still only 24 years old, the third-year player still has the raw athleticism that saw him drafted in the first round. Perhaps all he needs is a change in scheme and scenery.
