Buffalo Bills: Prioritizing the unrestricted free agents this offseason
The Buffalo Bills are coming off their best season in a long time and the focus for the front office this offseason needs to be how to improve the roster to reach the ultimate goal of a Super Bowl win.
However, general manager Brandon Beane faces a tough challenge over the next few months of balancing what players to bring back, who do they let walk and what is the best way to address the needs, either in free agency or through the draft. They also will have to do all this with limited cap space, although there is growing optimism that the cap may be above the $175 million total agreed upon as the floor.
The first step in the process for the Buffalo Bills will be to determine which players to re-sign and which ones to let walk. The good news is they can begin negotiating with all these players before free agency kicks off next month. This should give them a good idea of their needs once the new league year starts.
The Bills have 15 unrestricted free agents this offseason and they have been grouped into three categories in the following slides: Let Walk, Try to Re-sign, Must Re-sign.
