Buffalo Bills fans are hearing the usual positives from the front office this offseason. Yet this time, there are reasons for optimism.
Buffalo Bills season ticket holders recently received a nice letter from Brandon Beane.
The usual positives are included such as the fact the team is set up for success and that the team is out of the awful cap situation it was in last year.
Yet Beane is smart to avoid any wild promises. He also says how the team needs to be “calculated” in free agency, which protects him from building up major expectations. Buffalo is not the easiest place to land major free agents, but maybe Beane can change that narrative.
Keeping expectations low and then landing a top player would surprise fans in a good way and set up Beane as someone who will be here for the long-term.
If Beane is able to land some big players, the pressure will be on Sean McDermott to get the team back into contention in 2019. If the team regresses, that will be on him.
Let’s look at this and more in a Wednesday edition of The Morning Charge.
