Star NFL Player Turns Down More Money to Sign With Buffalo
Next week will be it for any off-season program at One Bills Drive. Mandatory minicamp will be held from June 13th to the 15th, with all players required to attend. That means we should see wide receiver Stefon Diggs for the first time since last January's AFC Divisional round loss.
The Bills are once again a "Super Bowl or bust" team this season. Buffalo had to contend with the likes of the Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, Los Angeles Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens in the AFC, but the roster is loaded with talent.
The Bills' roster is on paper, the best in the AFC. Only the NFC's Philadelphia Eagles has the Bills beat, which means a lot of players would love to play with Buffalo.
The newest star Bills player wanted to come to Buffalo so bad, he turned down more money from another franchise to come here.
Linebacker/edge rusher Leonard Floyd signed a one-year deal, worth up to $9 million. The contract is reportedly a $7 million base salary, with $2 million in incentives.
According to Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network, Floyd turned down more money so he could win in Buffalo.
Floyd reunites with both Von Miller and safety Taylor Rapp. The Bills signed Rapp in March and will help an already good defense.
Having players like Miller and Rapp recruiting Floyd sure helped, but this is what the Bills are now: a franchise that great players want to be a part of. They know when healthy, the Bills are a Super Bowl contender.
It's still takes some getting used to for Buffalonians.
