These are four defensive ends that the Buffalo Bills should call about to see if they are available through a trade.
The defensive end position for the Buffalo Bills is one that could go through drastic changes this offseason. The group of Jerry Hughes, Shaq Lawson and Trent Murphy didn’t have a stellar 2019 season, combining for only 16 sacks this past year.
This down year plus the combination of Lawson entering the offseason as a free agent and significant salaries dedicated to Hughes and Murphy creates a potential for a much different group entering the 2020 season.
The Bills will have three ways to address this position in the coming months, either sign a free agent, select a defensive end in April’s NFL Draft, or the third option being to acquire one through a trade.
Each path has their pros and cons and if the Bills elect to trade for a defensive end it will likely result in the loss of draft capital or players. In addition, they will likely acquire a player with a significant salary that will cut into their available cap.
However, the positive is they could get a proven asset that should be able to produce right away for this defense.
These are three defensive ends that the Buffalo Bills should call their current teams to find out what it might cost in facilitating a trade.
