Buffalo Bills: Creating the blueprint for the perfect offseason
Free Agency (Offense)
Signing: WR Demarcus Robinson, RB DeAndre Washington, TE Greg Olsen
While the Buffalo Bills are going to have plenty of cap space this offseason, this team has not been one to spend big in free agency and that should not change this year. While they likely won’t be getting the Amari Coopers of this class, there are a number of ascending players that can grow with this franchise.
The focus, similar to last year, will be to add more weapons for Josh Allen and the team needs to find that top receiving option for him. Last year, the Bills added John Brown and Cole Beasley, and while they were good contributors, there needs to be that number one guy for this offense. That player would be Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson.
The stats won’t blow anyone away with 949 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in three seasons but he also was never the top target in an offense that had Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and Sammy Watkins this past year. However, he is a big wide receiver at 6’1″ and still has plenty of speed for his size. At only 25 years of age, Robinson is a player that a team has to trust will develop but with an opportunity with the Bills, he should.
In addition to wide receiver, the Buffalo Bills will be looking for another running back to pair with Devin Singletary and that back should be DeAndre Washington. The former Raiders running back was the primary back up to Josh Jacobs this past year but in two games when he was the starter he ran for 162 rushing yards and added 10 receptions for 76 receiving yards. The ability he has as a runner and pass catcher would be the perfect compliment to Singletary.
The last main piece to add to this offense, actually already visited with the Bills, and that is tight end Greg Olsen. The former Carolina Panther was cut earlier this month and is a nice veteran presence, not only for Dawson Knox and Tommy Sweeney, but would give Josh Allen a reliable target in the passing game.
