Over the course of the offseason, the Buffalo Bills have done a good job reloading their roster with free agency signings. With a Super Bowl appearance slipping away from their grips at the hands of the Kansas City Cheifs, management knew going this period that pieces were to be lost and gained.

John Brown was, unfortunately, one of the offseason casualties for the Bills as his age, injury history, and more importantly, diminishing salary cap, made it impractical to stay. Along with Brown, the Bills lost Ty Nsheke, Tyler Kroft Brian Winters, and Quenton Jefferson who all signed with other franchises due to the very limited space in Buffalo.

In replacement, the Bills were able to bring back many of their key pieces-ones Beane wants to build around. Matt Milano headlines the 2021 free agency class for the Bills as he was not expected to return to Buffalo. With his team-friendly deal coming to an end after the end of the season, fans were expecting the former fifth-round choice to walk, testing the waters in free agency. Complementing the Milano signing, Beane was able to work out deals that kept the entire offensive line intact going into ’21. signing fan-favorite guard, Jon Feliciano, to a three-year deal, alongside Mitch Morse and Daryl Williams, it is clear that keeping continuity along the offensive line was an important offseason goal.

With all the moves the Buffalo Bills have made during the offseason, these are the top five free agency signings of 2021.
