Maurkice Pouncey‘s run as the highest-paid center in football lasted less than a week.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Buffalo Bills are giving former Kansas City Chiefs center Mitch Morse a contract that will move him to the top of the mountain.

Morse’s new contract with the Bills is set to pay him $44.5 million over four years with $26.5 million in guaranteed money. The average annual value of the contract of $11.125 million a year surpasses the $11 million a season Pouncey was given on his extension with the Steelers.

Morse’s tenure atop the list could be short-lived as well. Matt Paradis has yet to reach a deal with a new team and could take the top spot in the coming days. Paradis ranks No. 16 on out Top 100 free agents list while Morse ranked No. 46. They were the only two centers to actually reach free agency on our list.

  1. Great signing by the Bills. This is where the FA $$ should be going, the OL. Why were the Bills even bothering with AB? They got a taste of his antics and dodged a bullet. Go draft your own WR with the #9 pick for crying out loud. Now address the rest of the OL and we will see you at the draft.

  2. Oh. Well. Tye more things change, the more they throw money in weird directions. Second best available free agent center, paid like first or second best center? Sweet.

    He has played 18 games the last 2 years. Big guys with bad feet are not tye best bet ever. I love the smell of dead cap money.

  3. At least the newest 9 erpaid tight end only missed 11 games once. Last year. Foot 8njury.

    Oh, nice.

    Well, at least the cornerback they signed is… oh. Wait. Sorry.

    I thought Doug Whaley got fired.

  4. Ha! What a waste 44.5 mil. He will only be healthy for a maybe a quarter of the games if their lucky. No wonder Buffalo is continually in the cellar.

  5. The Bills setting up QB Allen with a guy who can play the position very well and handles himself well. Good locker room guy just hope he can avoid the injuries.

  6. As a Bills mark I’m really hoping Buffalo lands Carolina’s tackle Williams. Be an enormous upgrade. Plus Kroft is a blocking TE. So Josh Allen can maybe stop running for his life.

    And the Buffalo backfield. LOL. Give me this backfield 2-3 years ago & I wouldn’t believe it to be true….LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore & Chris Ivory? Ugh. Little late my Bills. Was really hoping for Mike Davis from SEATTLE but he’s about to get Jordan Howard his pink slip.

  7. The guy who replaced him when injured is better, and of course way cheaper than this stupidity. I knew he’d be released, and didn’t care at all. This is dumber than the raiders signings.

  8. Only concern on him is concussions, but it’s a big one. His last two he was out extended periods. Next one might put him out for a year.

    Good player when on the field but concussion history meant no long term deal in kc.
