Buffalo Bills should not stay content with the roster due to limited cap space

Last season due to a very odd cap situation because of the pandemic, we saw the Buffalo Bills make very little noise in free agency. Instead, Buffalo opted to re-sign some of their own pending free agents. Those deals worked out for Buffalo, but their highest-paid acquisition was punter Matt Haack outside of the six million dollars they shelled out to Emmanuel Sanders.

Buffalo basically just added a couple of rookies and Sanders to their 2020 roster and called it a day. The outcome of that was once again falling just short of the Super Bowl. This season, Brandon Beane cannot sit and be content with the roster Buffalo has because it has shown to not be enough in back-to-back years.

This does not mean Brandon Beane needs to go out and just spend willingly. Buffalo is still limited against the salary cap and will need to be smart with their moves. Additionally, the Buffalo Bills still should try and some of their own players back who can have a strong impact next season.

However, Beane also needs to find impact players who can help Buffalo and bring new skillsets to the team for the coaches to utilize. Another season of sitting back and being content with the roster will likely lead to the same outcome of the past two years. It is time for Brandon Beane to bring back the same swagger that landed him players like Stefon Diggs, Jordan Poyer, Micah Hyde, and Cole Beasley in the offseason.

Every year we see teams hurdle through pretty difficult cap situations, and there is no reason Buffalo should not do the same. Now that Buffalo has Josh Allen locked in for the foreseeable future, every year without a trip to the Super Bowl will be a wasted year. Now that Beane has drafted one of the best quarterbacks in the league, it is his job to give him the team to lead to a championship.
