starting QB Thomas Sweeney Jersey Draft , plus roster cutdowns The Buffalo Bills have been quite busy reshaping their roster this Labor Day weekend, and on the latest edition of the Buffalo Rumblings Podcast, co-hosts John Boccacino and Anthony Marino discuss the news that Nathan Peterman was named Buffalo’s starting quarterback to open the 2018 season. On NFL cut-down day, the Bills also released 34 players, and traded quarterback AJ McCarron to the Oakland Raiders for a fifth-round draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Hear what our podcast duo had to say about surprise names that made the 53-man roster, the players whose release was surprising, and the ever-evolving punter drama in Western New York. First up for discussion on the podcast: the news that Nathan Peterman is Buffalo’s starting quarterback in 2018 following a strong showing in the preseason when Peterman completed 80.5 percent of his passes (33 of 41) for 431 yards Thomas Sweeney NFL Jersey , three touchdowns, one interception and a quarterback rating of 124.7.The duo talk about the great work done by general manager Brandon Beane in securing a fifth-round draft pick from Oakland for McCarron, a move that gives the Bills 10 draft picks in 2019. Switching gears to cut-down day, Boccacino and Marino share their thoughts on surprise roster cuts (Corey Coleman and Nick O’Leary in particular) and surprise names that made the roster (Robert Foster, Conor McDermott, and Logan Thomas), though Thomas’ ability to serve as emergency quarterback certainly helped his cause. In the never-ending saga at punter Thomas Sweeney NFL Draft , Buffalo waived incumbent starter Colton Schmidt and claimed Corey Bojorquez, who will start at punter for the Bills despite not having attempted a punt this preseason. The pressure will be on Bojorquez, the former New Mexico standout, to both consistently boom punts for the Bills and establish a rapport with Stephen Hauschka on field goal and extra point attempts. Check out our Buffalo Rumblings podcast to catch the complete breakdown from roster cut day, and on the news that Nathan Peterman will start Week 1. Listen here.

While they’ve signed old friend Ryan Fitzpatrick to presumably start at quarterback Infant Devin Singletary Jersey , Miami could be looking to address the position in a big way heading into the 2019 NFL Draft.If their favorite prospect falls out of the top eight picks, could Miami actually pick up the phone and call the division-rival Buffalo Bills to make a trade? Would Buffalo do that?What would a Buffalo/Miami trade look like?Jimmy Johnson Trade ValueAccording to the old Jimmy Johnson draft-value chart, Buffalo’s pick is worth 1350 points. The Dolphins’ pick, just four spots later, is worth 1150. The 200-point difference is equal toMiami’s third round pick, 78 overall. It’s as clean as you can make it.Buffalo gets 13 and 78 = 1350 pointsDolphins get 9 overall = 1350 pointsModern Trade ValueIf you’re looking at newer draft charts, Buffalo wouldn’t get quite the same haul. SB Nation’s Rich Hill used a lot of data analysis to come up with this draft trade chart last year. In this scenario Devin Singletary Jersey Draft , Buffalo’s pick is worth 387.01 points while Miami’s pick is 335.74. The resulting deficit of 51.27 points is worth a mid- to late-third. Miami would still use their third, but Buffalo would have to even it out.Buffalo gets 13 and 78 = 394.28 pointsDolphins get 9 and 181 overall = 393 pointsOpportunity CostThis is the paragraph that you’ve all been waiting for. What is the opportunity cost of allowing a division rival to snag a guy they think will be their quarterback of the future? It probably starts with the 2020 first round pick in addition to the 2019 first round pick. Knowing that the Dolphins are completely rebuilding, it will likely be a high pick, so two firsts would do it or me. If you’ve read all of our trade-down scenarios, you’ll know we haven’t listed future first rounders in any deal to this point. While many readers and internet commenters think most if not all trade-downs should include a future first, that isn’t realistic most of the time. It’s realistic here.Buffalo gets 13 and 2020 first-round pickDolphins get 9 overall
