Wonder if he could switch and play the SAM backer? May be his only shot at making the Saints roster...
100% agreed. I was actually just thinking about how the Bills seem to be in pretty bad shape now at edge rusher with Shaq Lawson being out a while with a shoulder injury and his backup Enemkpali tearing his ACL. Rob Ryan has familiarity with Tull and and he would be a better fit in the Ryan brother's defense. Potential trade?

Now these are the contenders at the moment:

LCB (3) 40 - Delvin Breaux, 27 - Damian Swann, 49 - De’Vante Harris, 37 - Brandon Dixon
Swann is at practice today however not practicing. Good player, does a lot well but I don't think you can count on him throughout the season.

Side note:I really hope we decide to draft a kicker next season.

There were proven kickers in free agency this year that the FO didn't want to commit the money and I don't see any Morten Andersen's among the college ranks at this time...

What I don't get is the salary commitment to a punter and not a placekicker...

Now these are the contenders at the moment:

LCB (3) 40 - Delvin Breaux, 27 - Damian Swann, 49 - De’Vante Harris, 37 - Brandon Dixon

SS (2) 32 - Kenny Vaccaro, 41 - Roman Harper, 26 - Trae Elston

FS (3) 31 - Jairus Byrd, 48 - Vonn Bell, 30 - Erik Harris, 42 - Jamal Golden

RCB (2) 25 - P.J. Williams, 39 - Cortland Finnegan, 46 - Ken Crawley, 20 - Brian Dixon, 43 - Jimmy Pruitt, 21 - Keenan Lewis

Following camp reports and what we saw @ New England, 37 - Brandon Dixon, 26 - Trae Elston, 42 - Jamal Golden, 20 - Brian Dixon and 43 - Jimmy Pruitt are likely cuts or on the bubble...

Seems like a PK would be a little more important with the extra point being moved back and FG vs punt duty.

That's because we can't seem to figure out how to actually pick a really great PK.

You know the kicker the Bucs traded up to draft in the 2nd round? He missed a PAT attempt in their first preseason game lol.
