Buffalo Bills: 5 offseason moves to limit Josh Allen’s turnovers
By Ryan Heckman
One of the hottest topics right now, when it comes to the Buffalo Bills and their offseason, is general manager Brandon Beane’s comments the other day about Josh Allen.
The quarterback struggled with turnovers in 2022, and specifically in the red zone.
Beane is concerned, but needs to do everything he can this offseason to help Allen move on from these giveaways.
While some of it is on Allen himself, there are moves Beane can make to help his quarterback.
Buffalo Bills moves to help Josh Allen limit turnovers: Draft Jaxon Smith-Njigba at no. 26
Josh Allen needs another sure-handed wide receiver other than Stefon Diggs. Gabe Davis did not step up to the plate like many thought he would. The rest of the Bills’ receiving core is mediocre at best, and half of them are aging.
Buffalo could go all-in on offense and use their first-round pick in a wide receiver like Jaxon Smith-Njigba out of Ohio State.
He might be the most complete wide receiver in the draft, but will fall a little bit due to having missed the majority of last season with injury. Smith-Njigba gets open better than just about any other receiver in the draft. He knows how to use his body to make it easy on his quarterback to find him.
Smith-Njigba is also great after the catch. Allen would have to do minimal work when it came to getting him the football, and allow the young receiver to do his thing after the catch.
Using a first-round pick on a wideout would be risky, but this offense could absolutely take the next step if they did so.
