    I get dollars wise why the Bills would pass, in fact Gillislee is #2 in RB money for the Pat's, but the Bills really don't have anyone to backup McCoy if he goes down for some reason. Hasn't had a 16 game season in the last 2 years. I suppose they could get a vet down the road for quite a bit less on a one year deal for insurance.

    And Mike's guarantees are front-loaded. 2017's salary ($1.5M) & roster bonus ($2M). His active game bonus is $31,250 @ game and 15 games are considered 'Likely To Be Earned' making his cap hit this year just under $4M. For the regular season he could be taking home $4M.
