Buffalo Bills: An upgrade at quarterback remains the top priority

Buffalo Bills fans know the team needs to upgrade several positions, and the quarterback position remains the hot topic of conversation.

While Buffalo Bills fans await the start of the new league year, everyone is staying busy by reading mock drafts and going on Twitter tangents about which quarterback in this class will lead the team to a Super Bowl victory.

So to jump in on the fun we posted a poll on Twitter yesterday to ask the question of what position on offense needs to be upgraded the most.

The results aren’t all that shocking.

Looks like one former offensive lineman decided to vote in the poll.

I find this voting interesting, but not surprising. The retirement of Eric Wood leaves a void on the offensive line, while the quarterback and wide receiver positions still have some talent to work with. At least for now.

But we all know how important a good quarterback is and I can’t tell if the Bills are set to move on from Tyrod Taylor or if that is just a result of seeing so much of that talk on social media. The concept is helped along by the way the team has failed to commit to him during his time in Buffalo, but it could mirror the Kirk Cousins situation where the team kept going on a year-by-year basis.

The wide receiver position may not be in need of a major upgrade if a better quarterback is in town, but there’s also the possibility that some better receivers could make Taylor look much better.

Zay Jones and Kelvin Benjamin figure to be the main threats, and could potentially see career years if someone like Baker Mayfield comes to Buffalo and sets the world on fire. One can still dream, it’s only February.
