    I think they're about the same money-wise

    Bills have not even talked to him about a contract. They overhauled their OL a few years back and they are all coming up as free agents at around the same time. They have another OG who is an FA right now, just locked up an OG to a long term deal and their center is a FA next year.

    They are in serious need of upgrades at LB and WR so they need to keep money free there. Also they are throwing a lot money around their secondary this offseason. Lastly, ever since the drama with Jason Peter the Bills have stopped giving huge contracts to OL.

    (I listen to Buffalo sports radio a lot in the car)

    Work that "no luxury tax" angle.

    Honestly, with that we should always have the advantage in signing FA's. Plus athletes seem to love Nashville, for whatever reason.

    For sure. Taxes in California are insane.

    Curious, if we do sign Levitre, do we cut Amano and make more room in the cap and let Harris/Velasco fight for the C job? Then draft Warmack and ask Hutch to rework his deal.

    Did y'all know there is an "exit tax" in California? Was talking to a buddy of mine from college who was looking at buying a rental property in San Diego and if you sell a property in Cali and move out of the state you have to pay the normal federal cap gains tax, state cap gains tax, and the CA exit tax, which is on the gross sale of the property I believe. It's utter ridiculous.

    I'm sure there are some CA guys on here that can weigh in on that.

    Do you live here?? Great place to raise a family. People are genuinely nice. It's very affordable..your money gets you more than any coast. And no state tax...they basically pay none for half their paychecks.

    What's not to love....

    I don't think there is any doubt either Hutchinson or Amano get the axe when we bring in another guard. Harris is a free agent, isn't he? I don't think he'll be back.

    I think the line looks like this on opening day:
    LT- Roos
    LG- Free Agent
    C- Velasco
    RG- Draft Pick
    RT- Stewart
