This offseason, the Buffalo Bills have a few areas to address. The key thing to remember when looking at the offseason ahead is that Buffalo is a team ready to win now, therefore the moves they make are with one thing in mind: a Super Bowl.
One of the Bills’ key free agents this year is running back Devin Singletary, who hasn’t done much to solidify a contract to stay in Buffalo. He’s had his moments, but for the most part is very replaceable.
Buffalo drafted James Cook last year to come in and ideally be “the guy,” but he may not be able to handle that full-time type of role. It’s another offseason where we’re thinking Buffalo could use an upgrade at running back.
A possibility would be landing a proven commodity via trade, and the Green Bay Packers could have the perfect option.
The Buffalo Bills could trade for Packers running back Aaron Jones
It actually isn’t as crazy as it might sound, because Green Bay could save $10.4 million by moving on from Aaron Jones this offseason. The Packers also drafted AJ Dillon to eventually be their lead back, or so it may seem.
Pairing Jones with Cook and Nyheim Hines could drastically change the Bills’ back field and offense in general. He’s one of the better dual-threat backs in football; a guy who can do severe damage both on the ground and through the air.
Over his last four seasons, Jones has rushed for 1,000 yards three times but has ended up with over 1,000 yards from scrimmage in every one of those years. Jones is 28 years old, so he’s at the age where the Packers could consider moving on from him before he hits a wall.
On the flip side, Jones doesn’t look to be slowing down, at least not for another year or so. And again, the Bills are ready to win right now. Adding pieces with that mindset makes sense for a team like Buffalo.
