There is no question that the Buffalo Bills roster has gotten better over the years with general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott. However, over that time they have had to make some tough decisions.

This has meant having to let good players go or not re-sign them when they were free agents. While there are a number of former Buffalo Bills looking for new jobs, I highlight five players who are still looking for new teams, starting with one player who was one of the best at his position this past season.

Corey Bojorquez

While players like Matt Milano, Jon Feliciano, and Daryl Williams were the most discussed free agents the Bills had this offseason, one interesting storyline was what they do with punter Corey Bojorquez.

This past season, Bojorquez had a career year and finished first in the league in yards per punt at 50.8 yards per punt. When he was asked to come into the game, he did an excellent job but the dilemma for the organization was that they didn’t punt often. Among starting punters, he was near the bottom in total punts with only 41.

He was set to be a restricted free agent this offseason but instead of tendering Bojorquez, the team elected to sign Matt Haack to a three-year deal and made their starting punter last year an unrestricted free agent.

The available starting jobs at this point appear limited as five punters have signed free agent deals this offseason. At this point, Corey Bojorquez may once again find himself in a competition for the starting job. However, that likely will not be in Buffalo considering the contract the Bills gave Haack.
