Armstrong, was fired by Dan Quinn on December 31st after being the Falcons’ ST Coordinator since 2008.

The 55 year-old Armstrong has been a coordinator since 1997 when he started with the Bears.

Here are the details of Matt Barkley’s contract, according to Spotrac.

Cap numbers

2019: $1.775 million

2020: $2.025 million

Signing bonus: $600,000

He is due non-guaranteed base salaries of $1.25 million (2019) and $1.5 million (2020).

There are workout bonuses of $250,000 each season and playing-time incentives up to $875,000 each season.

Very cap friendly deal for the Bills and a great value for a backup quarterback. Even with the team having a bunch of cap the next two off-seasons, value signings are still important.

Report: Bills sign CFL’s leading receiver

By Brandon J. Koch

According to Farhan Lalj of TSN, the Buffalo Bills have signed Canadian Football League’s leading receiver last season Duke Williams.

Williams had 88 catches for 1,579 yards and 11 touchdowns in his second season for the Eskimos.

In two years at Auburn, Williams had 57 catches for 877 catches for 6 touchdowns.

Definitely an interesting signing by the Bills.

Mills, Alonso and Quinn fined

By Brandon J. Koch

The NFL released information on fines from this past week.

In the Bills-Dolphins game, Ian Rapoport tweeted: Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso and Dolphins DE Robert Quinn were fined $10,026 for unnecessary roughness while Bills OL Jordan Mills was fined $13,369 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

In the 3rd quarter and Buffalo driving, Josh Allen ran for 9 yards but was hit late by Kiko Alonso after Allen clearly gave himself up. Alonso dove and missed but kicked Allen in the head.

Quinn and Mills were involved in a shoving match and Quinn grabbed Mills by the face mask. Both ejected.

Bills should look into AJ Green this offseason

By Brandon J. Koch

GM Brandon Beane has stated multiple times that this offseason he has to get Josh Allen some weapons.

The Bills have a small foundation built in Zay Jones and Robert Foster, but Beane knows there needs to be substantial additions at the position group. He will have a lot of opportunities to do that, via draft, free agency or even a trade.

One player he should make a call on this offseason that would be a huge help to Josh Allen and this offense is Bengals wide receiver AJ Green.

Before anyone freaks out and says it’s a bad idea, think about it.

  • The Bills may not even have to trade for Green. A new regime in Cincinnati could mean big changes.
  • Green has one year left on his contract at a $15 million dollar cap hit, only $3 million of that is dead cap if the Bengals decide to go in a different direction.
  • If they do try and trade for Green, it shouldn’t take much. What’s the value for a 31 year-old receiver just off toe surgery? Many teams won’t give up big currency.
  • Green is an all-pro who will provide instant offense and a go-to weapon for Josh Allen.
  • Sean McDermott is big on veteran presence in his position groups, Green provides that.
  • Maybe the biggest reason the Bills should try and go after Green: CAP ROOM!
  • This offseason and in 2020, the Bills are set up with a lot of money to spend. They can afford going after Green. If they have the chance to take a flyer on him and it doesn’t work out, it won’t hurt them long term.

Beane said his number one priority is getting Josh Allen weapons. This would be a very nice start.

Danny Crossman out as ST Coordinator

By Brandon J. Koch

The coaching staff changes keep coming.

According to Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic, the Bills have parted ways with Special teams coordinator Danny Crossman.

Crossman, hired in 2013, survived 3 different coaching staffs.

According to Football outsiders, the Buffalo Bills special teams were ranked dead last in 2018. You could argue that unit was the reason for three of the ten losses this past season.
