Front Office Report
(Last Updated on August 20, 2016)

Welcome to our 2016 edition of our exclusive Front Office Section! This page will keep you updated on all the moves by the front office! Included is a look at the projected 2016 free agents and what we think the team will do with them. This will be the one page to look at for all roster and front office moves made during the year. We will also have a list of 2016 player contract signings, restructurings, & extensions as well as the details behind them as they become available! You can also take a look back at all the 2015 moves and contract details as well as previous years.

Here is a look at the 2016 free agents and what we predict will happen to them. It is a relatively small list this year. There are only 9 unrestricted free agents, one has already re-signed. These players have four years or more of service.

Unrestricted Free Agents
These free agents are free to sign with any team they want in the off season with no compensation to the Bills. (They may be given compensatory draft picks for players lost in next year's draft.)
G Richie Incognito - Re-Signed with the Bills 3/8.
OT Cordy Glenn - Franchise tagged; Signed longterm deal 5/3.
LB Nigel Bradham - Signed with Eagles 3/9.
WR Percy Harvin - Has decided to retire.
WR Greg Salas - Re-signed 1/4.
QB Josh Johnson - Knows offense but no room for him.
DE Alex Carrington - Could be brought back for cheap.
CB Ron Brooks - Signed with Eagles 3/9.

Restricted Free Agents
Players are restricted free agents if they have three or less years of service. The Bills have the right to match any offer any of these free agents get or receive compensation in the form of draft picks for each player lost. The round of the pick depends on where the player was drafted and/or the price of the qualifying offer given by the Bills.

WR Chris Hogan - Received lowest tender 3/7. Signed Offer Sheet With Pats 3/11. Bills did not match.
TE MarQueis Gray - Chose to not tender him. Signed With Dolphins.
OT Jordan Mills - Signed Tender for $1.671M 3/30.
DT Corbin Bryant - Signed Tender for $1.671M 4/18.
DT Stefan Charles - Did not tender him. Signed with Lions 3/10.
LB Ty Powell - Did not tender him. Now an unrestricted free agent may try to bring back.
S Bacarri Rambo - Now an urestricted free agent after not being tendered.

Exclusive Rights Free Agents
These players have two or less years experience and has no bargaining power. They will remain with the Bills if they tender them.

RB Mike Gillislee - Signed contract extension 1/4.

Here is where we list contract details that we obtained through various media outlets. It is an approximation since the Bills do not release contract details. We list new contracts, restructured deals and extensions that happen for the 2015 season. Some players may be asked to restructure their contracts which would convert base salaries into signing bonuses to save cap money. This practice usually puts teams in a bad cap situation in future years so it isn't likely this off season since the team is in good cap shape.

QB Tyrod Taylor - 5 yrs. $92M extension. SB $3.4M. Base $2.6M (2016). Guaranteed; $12M (2017) $15.5M Option Bonus both guaranteed for injury; $13M (2018) Guaranteed for injury; $13.6M (2019); $13.85M (2020); $14.55M (2021). Roster Bonus $3.5M (2016); Workout Bonus $6,240 (2016); $5.5m in Not Likely To Be Earned Incentives.
