Ranking five best moves by the Buffalo Bills made before 2022 NFL Draft
2. Buffalo Bills sign former All-Pro pass rusher Von Miller
One of the biggest needs entering free agency for the Buffalo Bills was improving their pass rush. The past few seasons the team has used high draft picks at the position with the selections of Greg Rousseau, Boogie Basham, and A.J. Epenesa, and while they have shown promise at times there was still that need for that game-changing pass rusher.
The challenge was always that those types of players are few and far between and usually command major contracts. The reputation the Buffalo Bills have been able to build over the years played a major role as the team was able to bring in Von Miller.
The former first round pick spent his entire career with the Denver Broncos before he was traded during the season to the Los Angeles Rams. He was a big reason for the Rams success in the playoffs, and ultimately winning the Super Bowl, and the hope is that he can have that same kind of impact in Buffalo.
Even at 33 years old, Miller is still a force off the edge and rushing the passer. In addition to the sacks and pressures Miller will have, he also will help create more winnable matchups down the line for players like Rousseau and Ed Oliver.
The addition of Von Miller makes one of the best defenses even better and may be that one move fans will point to at the end of the season if the Buffalo Bills were to win the Super Bowl.
