The Buffalo Bills began the offseason by getting older at running back. A recent roster move could lead to the team getting younger at the position.

The Buffalo Bills were expected to make a move at running back this offseason.

The moves began with the signing of Frank Gore, giving the team quite the veteran group in the backfield.

While that may have alarmed some fans, the Bills followed up by letting go of Chris Ivory this week. This move seems to signal a desire to add a younger back to the group later on this offseason.

It is important not to make rash judgments during any offseason. While signing Gore first gave the Bills a historically old backfield, it was not the only move that was going to be made. This is a similar discipline needed when teams decide to let go of several players early on, only to sign and draft replacements a few months later.

Instant reaction is the name of the game now and that can sometimes take the fun out of certain things. Hopefully no one lost hope in the team’s ability to add talent in the backfield already, as it appears the team will add a running back in April’s draft.

We look at this news and more in today’s Morning Charge.
