Marcell Dareus next on Whaley’s to do list for the Bills
Buffalo News’ Vic Carucci got insight into Whaley’s thoughts on when the Bills will tackle the future of one of their best players: Marcell Dareus.
“In the near future,” General Manager Doug Whaley said. “He will be priority No. 1 once the dust settles post-draft, maybe even before then, just to get the ball rolling.”
How can they get their? Seems the Bills are already discussing an extension and salary reduction for Mario Williams.
“He could free up the most and make it the most logical, because what we would do is not only restructure, but extend him similar to” what the Bills recently did with defensive tackle “Kyle Williams, so these guys retire as Buffalo Bills,” Whaley said. “We want to set a precedent that we retain our own and we have them retire as Buffalo Bills. I think that’s a sentiment we’re trying to show the players on our roster now.
“Not only are we getting good players, but we’re retaining our good players as long as possible. And everybody wins. Mario gets a couple of more years, he’s going to retire a Buffalo Bill, and we get some cap relief.”
