The Buffalo Bills have to improve the offensive line before anything will change on offense. That remains the top priority this offseason.

It is not a great offseason to be a current Buffalo Bills offensive lineman.

The team will surely seek upgrades both in free agency and through the NFL Draft. Things are so bad that even LeSean McCoy weighed in saying he wouldn’t mind playing behind one of those dominant Alabama linemen. The Twitter outrage ensued.

But McCoy is not wrong. The entire offense would benefit from the addition of one or more linemen who could be fixtures along the line for years to come.

Finding those individuals is easier said than done which is why this is a crucial offseason for Brandon Beane. If he whiffs with all this cap space and draft capital, the fans won’t be happy.

Moves won’t be made until free agency begins in March, but this is going to be a hot topic until then. Luckily, we have tweets like the one McCoy sent out on Monday to keep us all in a football mindset until then.

We look at this and more in today’s Wednesday edition of The Morning Charge.

Biggest offseason need at the start of 2019 (BuffaLowDown, Steven Kubitza)

The Bills are only going to improve on offense if the offensive line can hold its own and not make Josh Allen run around for his life every play. No point in getting a top receiver if the line isn’t good enough.

LeSean McCoy feels the same way most Bills fans do. But apparently that upset some who needed some outrage on Monday and Tuesday.

The Bills didn’t make a major splash in free agency last year.

That meant there wasn’t too much to be excited about from the 2018 class.
