Buffalo Bills sign free agent Von Miller

The other big turning point this offseason for the Buffalo Bills was their signing of free agent Von Miller, who agreed to a six-year deal to join Buffalo. Over the years, the Bills have added a number of good free agents that have been big contributors to this team’s success like Micah Hyde, Jordan Poyer, and Cole Beasley.

However, up until this point they have not signed a top-tier free agent like Von Miller. This is where that changing the perspective of the Bills within the league comes into play. The Bills are viewed as a well-run organization now that has won back-to-back division titles and made the playoffs in four of the past five seasons.

The former All-Pro defensive end had plenty of teams trying to sign him, including the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys. Prior to Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane, it would have been unheard of for a top free agent to choose the Bills over a team that just won the Super Bowl and a team like the Cowboys.

During the NFL Combine, NFL Network’s Mike Giardi tweeted that two premier defensive free agents actually reached out to the Bills about joining. While Buffalo may not sign big name free agents every year, it will likely be at the top of the list for players who are going to be free agents of teams they want to play for as long as they have Brandon Beane, Sean McDermott, and Josh Allen.
