Andrew Brandt: Bills offered Bryan Bulaga more than Packers

The Buffalo Bills were reportedly pursuing tackle Bryan Bulaga when he hit the free-agent market earlier this week.

Bulaga quickly re-signed with the Green Bay Packers, but according to ESPN NFL business analyst Andrew Brandt, the former first-round pick turned down more money from the Bills.

"Bryan Bulaga, more money in Buffalo. He stayed," Brandt said Wednesday on ESPN's Football Today podcast. "... They buy into this culture of a draft and develop a team that is always going to be good."

Brandt, who worked in the Packers' front office from 1999 to 2009, said receiver Randall Cobb also turned down better deals elsewhere to return to Green Bay.

"Randall Cobb is a prime example. I know for a fact -- I'm pretty tied in with his situation -- he left a lot of money on the table," Brandt said. "And I knew it was going to be hard to pry him away from Green Bay. It's a system he liked; he knows he's playing with the best quarterback."

Rookie Seantrel Henderson started all 16 games at right tackle for the Bills last season, with Pro Football Focus grading him 82nd among 84 offensive tackles in the NFL.
