I had no idea the man was out there and available until I saw the news yesterday. I apologize if I lack context but I'm just frustrated. So if someone can explain why we made no attempt to bring in a former pro bowl CB, by all means, straighten me out.

I mean it’s cliche but maybe we put a phone call and he laughed at us? Not to mention he’s reallly not that good anymore…. Almost 33 and it seems no real interest in him.

I am in no way an evaluator of NFL talent however i have to assume that in TODAYS nfl where its nearly impossible to be a physical defensive back without getting flagged it would behoove you to try and load up on younger players at the position o take advantage of their speed and agility. Corner may be the hardest position on defense.

Just my 2 cents

I mean, no team signed him, didn't even hear about any visits or workouts.

That happens for a reason and Bills desperation at the position doesn't change that.

I think Kliff loses the locker room with a L on Sunday. The team needs a 10+ point win to get a tiny jolt of confidence.
We don't know if it isn't lost already. He and Kyler definitely don't seem to be on the same page right now.

Xavier Rhodes is burnt out. He’s done. No disrespect he was a great player in his prime but his body is done with it.

I don’t believe Kliffy has ever had the locker room at any point. Coach Bro seems to behave as though he wants to be every player’s buddy and not their boss. Some of the players may like him, but I doubt many (or any) of them respect him.
