The Buffalo Bills can officially sign players to new deals starting today, although there may not be too many more surprises after a busy start to the week.

The new league year begins today at 4 p.m. but the Buffalo Bills have already been busy in getting deals done.

The big news from Tuesday in the NFL was the trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, followed by Le’Veon Bell ending up in New York.

The Bills were not involved in any of the crazy news, except for a brief mention in the Bell rumors, but still got work done.

The team added two wide receivers in Cole Beasley and John Brown, former first-round corner Kevin Johnson, and several more offensive linemen. That is now four this offseason, which already begins the transformation in the protection of Josh Allen.

This has all come before free agency has even officially started. Brandon Beane is already spending money and getting work done in what isn’t an amazing free agent class. The key was improving the line and he has added nearly a full offensive line before the draft. Adding several more to the group in April will only increase the talent pool and the competition during training camp.

The team should continue to make moves as the new league year begins and fans will surely keep refreshing Twitter nonstop to check the news.

We look at this and more in today’s Morning Charge. Happy new (league) year!
