After an expectation shattering 2020-2021 season for the Buffalo Bills, the coaching staff and the front office gear up to build off of that success in this offseason. With the departure of Tom Brady from the AFC East, many predicted a successful season from the Bills. However, the level of success the Bills achieved this past season was certainly unexpected and slightly ahead of schedule.
With free agency just around the corner, the Bills have the opportunity to remain Super Bowl contenders heading into next season. Much of next season’s success will be riding on the decisions Bills General Manager Brandon Beane makes in the next few months. Beane’s job won’t be easy this offseason with the major decrease on the salary cap for the upcoming season.
Having key contributors like Matt Milano, Daryl Williams, and Jon Felciano set to hit free agency coupled with the decreased salary cap creates the concern that the Bills could actually get worse this offseason rather than improve. With that being said, Beane and the rest of the player personnel department have done an excellent job constructing this roster for years now and Bills fans should have the utmost confidence in them this offseason regardless of the financial constraints.
Below I will be looking into three potential outcomes for the Bills this coming season. Most of these outcomes will be closely linked to decisions made within the next few months.
