These are the four position groups set up for the best long term success for the Buffalo Bills.
The Buffalo Bills roster has gone through a transformation under general manager Brandon Beane’s guidance. There is no question that this roster is better entering the 2020 season than when he took over the role during the 2017 offseason.
While things can change very quickly in the NFL and there is always going to be roster turnover, there are some positions that appear to be set up the best for long term success. These are positions that have starters, but also some key backups, locked in on deals for the next three seasons.
These are four positions that Brandon Beane and the Buffalo Bills shouldn’t have to worry about for the next few seasons.
The wide receiver position is one of the strongest on the Buffalo Bills this year and they should remain that way for a while. The team added Stefon Diggs this offseason by trading with the Minnesota Vikings and he now steps in as the team’s number one wide receiver.
One of the reasons the trade was smart for the Bills is that Diggs is under contract through the 2023 season as he is in the middle of a five-year deal he signed with the Vikings.
In addition to Diggs, the Bills have slot receiver Cole Beasley under contract through 2022 and drafted two wide receivers, Gabriel Davis and Isaiah Hodgins, who have looked great this training camp.
The moves made this offseason solidified the position that will allow Brandon Beane not to worry about adding another wide receiver for the next few years.
