The latest rumour to come out of Miami, as reported by USA Today, is that they are highly interested in signing Bills quarterback Rob Johnson to a 5 year, $30 million deal.

Thoughts?

I think it is just that Rude, a rumor. The only way Rob Johnson deserves 6 million a year, is if someone paid him to leave the NFL. lol

Jay Fiedler is our guy, but I wish R.J a HEALTHY 2002, and the best of luck.

He's about the least interesting FA QB on the market this year. Always hurt, cannot win...not a good combo. I couldn't believe he got all the money he did with Buffalo. If he's smart he'll just take a pay cut and compete for the starting job next year. If he's not, he may get the league minimum unless Dan Snyder's eyes get bigger than his head (quite a feat)...

Too many good FA QBs, and the draft is pretty strong in QBs as well. Johnson shouldn't get much interest.

I thought there was just Jim Miller and Gus Ferotte and Jay Fiedler probably - who else is there ?

Skins will trade for Bledsoe - maybe ?

I always wanted to see RJ behind an OL which can give him a protection. The Bills never could. Just look at Van Pelt. He may have looked better at times but yet he was knocked out by us as well.

RJ has a strong arm. His problem is he looks too long down field which increases his time required. He has to go through his reads a lot faster.

BTW, I do not think that the Dolphins will ever pay 5 million/year for anybody on offense as long as the D takes up 60% of the cap.

If someone comes in or stays at QB (Fiedler) it will be in the 2 million range.

I highly doubt they would pay Rob Johnson that much. I remember when we were all like :eek: when Marino got his 5 year - $25 million deal making him the highest paid QB ever! :eek:

I guess it was an attempt by a Bills fan trying to unload a cap problem...LOL
