Defensive Tackle

One of the key free agents the Buffalo Bills should try to re-sign is defensive tackle Harrison Phillips. He had a great second half of the season and showed he can be the starting defensive tackle alongside Ed Oliver that helps solidify the middle of the defensive line.

If the Bills are not able to re-sign Phillip, this is going to become a really pressing need for this team. In addition to Phillips, the Bills also have Vernon Butler, Justin Zimmer, and Eli Ankou set to be free agents. This means that Oliver and Star Lotulelei are the only defensive tackles under contract with Brandin Bryant joining that group after signing a futures contract.

The Buffalo Bills like to have depth along their defensive line with how frequently they are rotating players so this is one position that they almost certainly will be adding three (or four if they don’t re-sign Harrison Phillips) players this offseason.
