Although Buffalo Bills fans may not have a vested interest in the result of this year’s Super Bowl, the Chiefs and Eagles will showcase some of the top free agent talent available this offseason. Here are 4 players at potential positions of need whom the Bills might target in free agency.
The Bills do not have much cap space, sitting at $245 Million in obligations for next season. However, the salary cap increased from $208 Million in 2022 to $224.8 Million in 2023. Some restructuring and cuts can put the front office in a position to be aggressive buyers.
Adding impact players this offseason will be crucial to stay in contention for the 2023 season. These veterans provide playoff experience and immediate patches to last season’s shortcomings.
Free agency targets for the Buffalo Bills playing in the Super Bowl
Isaac Seumalo starts at Right Guard for the Philadelphia Eagles and has played three seasons at Left Guard. He would hopefully replace Roger Saffold, a disappointing addition from last season’s free agency. Seumalo played well this past season and is ranked as the 28th best Free Agent in the class by PFF. He won’t be cheap, projected to fetch $11 million per year this offseason. It will take some cap maneuvering, but such aggressive maneuvers are necessary to keep a championship window open.
Andre Dillard had limited playing time this past season, hidden in the Eagles’ depth chart. The Buffalo Bills could offer the 27 year old an expanded role. He brings great versatility, capable of playing both Tackle and Guard.
Dillard is a bargain find, as his limited play from this past season will make teams hesitant to make him a starter. The Bills could strike gold, betting on his draft pedigree (the 22nd overall selection) and solid play in preceding seasons.
