Even though free agency doesn’t start until Tuesday March 11th, the Buffalo Bills have been somewhat active already.
They have signed Aaron Williams to a 4 year extension, as well as 4 other players, 3 of which were exclusive rights free agents, Hogan, Summers, and OL Antoine McClain.
Bigger names for the Bills that are still out their are Jairus Byrd and Scott Chandler. These guys have been looked at in a couple of different ways. Should the Bills bring back Chandler after having a career year? Should they let him go and look to the draft or free agency? Should they keep him and also look to bring in a guy like Finley who is coming off of surgery so the risk is limited?
There are a lot of questions with what the Bills are looking to do and how they will go about it. The draft is still a bit a way, but it is free agency time.
The Buffalo Bills have begun to bring in free agents that have bee cut by their teams. The Bills have looked at two ILBs, Jameel McClain and Jasper Brinkey. Brinkley has already met with the Vikings before meeting with the Bills and McClain was the Bills first stop.
I like that the Bills are looking at the ILB position and bringing in someone that has shown productivity in that position. I also like the fact that with this move, the Bills would be looking to move Kiko Alonso to the weak-side LB which I believe is a going to be a much better fit for him.
With free agency only a coupe of days away, there is still a lot that can happen and is going to happen. This is probably one of the more exciting times of the year, with the possibilities and the speculations of what teams could do.
