Hopefully Doug can find a good replacement, he and Howey have been doing a good job in that department the last 2 years.

Doug pretty much runs the offense, so it won't change the play calling.

Both Case Keenam & Teddy Bridgewater will become free agents from the Vikings..
Maybe the Bills could snag one of them.. :o

Eagles Punter Donnie Jones is retiring after 14 years in the NFL.

Eagles have to find a new punter now.

Panthers release long time running back Jonathan Stewart. Not too much of a surprise after a lack luster performance last season..

Hmm..
There's some chatter going around that the Bills could go after Foles in a trade :o
Quote
There are aspects of a Foles-to-Buffalo trade that make sense. His $7.6 million cap number in 2018 would offer a discount over Tyrod Taylor and his $18.08 million cap number, especially if the Bills moved Taylor before his $6 million roster bonus becomes due March 16. Foles would give the Bills a better shot at contending in 2018 than Taylor, whose statistics have declined each of his three seasons with the Bills. The short-term financial commitment to Foles on essentially a one-year deal also would give the Bills flexibility to draft a quarterback in 2018 and transition away from Foles in 2019.

However, the biggest obstacle to any deal would be the cost. The Eagles are in a position of strength where they are not simply going to give Foles away for a mid- to late-round draft selection. It likely will take an early-round pick for the Bills to pry Foles away from Philadelphia, which eats into the stash of draft selections (five in the first three rounds) that general manager Brandon Beane has amassed potentially to trade up in the draft for a quarterback. Giving up an early-round pick for Foles and then allowing him to walk away in free agency next offseason could be viewed as a waste.

This is going to be the thing that all teams will have to deal with if they want to trade for Foles, Eagles are not going to let him go unless it's a very sweet deal, how many teams are willing to make a sweet deal for a guy that is a free agent next year?

Hmmm, looks to me like a trade just to clear some cap space....
