The Buffalo Bills got off to a hot start in free agency. That initial surge is over and everyone can go back to focusing on the NFL Draft.
One week ago today marked the unofficial start to free agency. By the time the official start rolled around on Wednesday the madness was nearly over.
The Buffalo Bills were busy and bolstered the offense by adding several new receivers, offensive linemen and even a future Hall of Fame running back. The Bills also added a former first-round pick on defense, all without shelling out a massive contract to one player in particular.
So many moves are made during those first few days that it is hard for that momentum to carry over throughout the month. There are still unsigned players out there, but the Bills’ focus appears to be fully on the NFL Draft after adding so much talent in free agency.
Beane got upgrades at key positions on offense and should do the same in April’s draft. The key in a rebuild is to add as much talent as possible and let the better players prevail. As opposed to sinking a ton of money into a player and not having him compete for a starting job.
We look at this and more in today’s Morning Charge.
