Buffalo Bills to host Authentic Tre'Davious White Jersey , sign former Seattle Seahawks punter Reportedly, they will host another punter to provide competition for incumbent Colton Schmidt.According to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, the Bills will host veteran punter Jon Ryan on a visit. Ryan was released by the Seahawks on Monday, only months after saying that he would make general manager John Schneider look “really dumb” for trading up in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft to select Michael Dickson, a punter from the University of Texas. Ryan will still have that chance, but he will have to continue his career elsewhere in order to do so.For his career, Ryan has averaged 44.7 yards per punt, with 311 of his 914 career punts being downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. He has a career net yards per put average of 38.4. All of those numbers are very similar to Schmidt’s career ratios, albeit with Buffalo’s punter’s statistics coming on a smaller scale. Schmidt has averaged 44.1 yards per punt over his career, with 101 of his 322 punts downed inside the 20-yard line of his opponents. His career net yards per kick average is 39.7. On this preseason, Schmidt and Ryan have once again put up very similar numbers. Schmidt has averaged 45.7 yards per punt on 6 kicks, while Ryan has averaged 45.6 yards per punt on 5 kicks. The big difference is in the net yards per punt total for both men, as Schmidt’s kicks has netted 41.3 yards and Ryan’s have averaged 29.8 yards per kick. Both men trail the rookie Dickson in both the overall average (51.7) and the net average (50.2) yards per kick by a significant amount.With Stephen Hauschka, another former Seattle special teams player, already in the fold in Buffalo, the connection is a clear one. The Bills appear to be intent on adding some competition for Schmidt this summer.UPDATE: Per Ian Rapoport, Ryan will sign with the Bills when his flight lands.Brandon Beane clarifies why Corey Coleman was cut When the Buffalo Bills traded a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2020 to the Cleveland Browns for former first-round draft pick Corey Coleman, the conventional wisdom had Coleman emerging as one of Buffalo’s best wide receivers. At the very least, Coleman was expected to serve as a valuable deep threat Womens Rafael Bush Jersey , someone to take the top off of opposing defenses with his speed and athleticism. Instead, following a preseason where Coleman, the No. 15 overall selection out of Baylor, struggled to learn the playbook and failed to make a splash on the field, Coleman was one of 34 Bills cut during Saturday afternoon’s roster cut-down. In a comprehensive sit-down interview with Tim Graham of The Athletic, second-year Bills general manager Brandon Beane addressed the rationale behind cutting Coleman from a corps that, on the outside, appears to be one of the weakest in the NFL. Coleman caught only one pass out of 62 snaps in three preseason games, and whenever he was on the field, he seemed lost and out of sorts trying to operate in Brian Daboll’s complex offense.Despite the fact that Beane said the speedster “tried hard. He really did,” it wasn’t enough to make Coleman earn a roster spot over unproven talents like Robert Foster and Ray-Ray McCloud III. “Where he came in to learn a new offense, he just didn’t jell. It’s one of those things you ask yourself, ‘Have we given this enough time?’ Beane said. “The talent’s there. Anybody that’s been around the practice field, you see he has a skill set. But we just never were able to make it mesh on the field with him, and it’s a production business.”While Coleman missed 13 games his first two seasons (suffered a broken hand injury in each season), he is a known speedster (4.37 40 time) whose presence was expected to immediately gives Buffalo a credible deep threat. While he has shown glimpses of his potential, with 56 catches for 718 yards and five touchdowns in his first two years, his potential didn’t stop Beane from moving on from Coleman less than a month after acquiring him. This despite the addition of a $3.5 million dead money hit against Buffalo’s 2018 cap, including Coleman’s guaranteed 2018 salary and his guaranteed 2019 salary , which accelerates into the Bills’ 2018 cap. “People think, ‘Oh, GMs love to protect their draft picks.’ Well, if I’m protecting my draft picks, I gave a seventh-round pick for this guy and guaranteed some cash [$3.55 million for the 2018 season]. You don’t want to see that. But you’ve got to be true to who earned the spot, and we just felt in the limited time that we were still unsure it was going to work, and to kick someone else out that we knew would work or felt better about, we just didn’t feel that was right,” Beane said when providing his rationale for keeping unproven wideouts like Foster, an undrafted rookie free agent out of Alabama, and McCloud, a sixth-round draft pick out of Clemson. “We talk about earning your spot. We just didn’t feel he’d done enough to earn it, and in fairness to Corey, it is hard to get here in August and learn an offense when you’re fighting for reps and haven’t practiced with any of these quarterbacks. That’s where I left myself late Friday night as I was debating this: ‘Am I being fair to Corey, and am I being fair to the team?’ At the end of the day, I have to be fair to the team.”
