These are the best ways for the Buffalo Bills to address each position need this offseason.

While the front office has been working since the end of the 2019 season, the Buffalo Bills plan will start to come into focus later this month with the start of free agency. This will be the first big step for Brandon Beane and the Bills and will be followed up by the NFL Draft.

For the good NFL teams, these two key phases of the offseason do not live in a vacuum but rather need to compliment each other. The Bills front office will be evaluating the talent both available in free agency and the NFL Draft to try to determine the best way to address all their needs.

The depth of talent certainly plays a factor but salaries have to be taken into account as well. The teams that are in the best salary cap situation are the ones that usually draft well and find impact players across all rounds of the NFL Draft but also find those players that produce above their contract.

A perfect example for the Buffalo Bills is safety Jordan Poyer, who is likely looking for a new deal this offseason. However, over the past three seasons the Bills have had a player that has well exceed his salary in terms of production.

This is the best way for the Buffalo Bills to improve each position of need this offseason, either through free agency or the NFL Draft, based on talent and cost.
