  1. Good for him, solid chess piece that will make that Bills offense even more dangerous…like Landon Collins, another consequence of the Wentz trade for Washington.

  2. I didn’t expect the Bills to be as active as they have been. They’re really filling up the holes they have w/ solid players – nothing splashy, but guys who can really play.

    Outstanding offseason so far. This checks a box that they no longer have to address in the draft.

  3. They gave 7 million dollars to a third running back!?!?!?

    This team will once again lose in the playoffs.

  4. Damn. Dude was a beast catching balls out of the backfield for DC. Wish we would have kept him. One of the few exciting offensive players to watch in DC.

  5. Why do people keep referring to McKissic as the Bills 3rd RB? I think he is immediately plugged in in front of Moss.

  6. Dude does not get a ton of stats but he is sneaky good, especially on 3rd down.

  7. Without Josh Allen being the leading rusher, this offense is average. I know teams don’t like to put their franchise QB in harm’s way but Allen is bigger than Cam Newton and Big Ben. He is a beast. It won’t be the same offense with a traditional running game featuring RBs.

  8. Heartbreaking offseason for Washington fans. First Scherff, then Settle, now McKissic!!!! What is the front office doing? These are CORE players that added lots of value to the team.
