The Buffalo Bills are hoping to put the 2022 season behind them after their disappointing loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. If they want to have more success this upcoming season, they will need to have a great offseason to improve their roster.
However, for that to occur general manager Brandon Beane and the Bills will need certain things to fall in place. These are four worst-case scenarios that they should hope to avoid or it could make their job much tougher this offseason.
4 worst-case scenarios for the Buffalo Bills 2023 offseason
Jordan Poyer leaves in free agency
This first scenario seems likely to happen as safety Jordan Poyer looks to be highly sought after in free agency and based on a recent interview by Poyer, it seems as if the Bills have not had an interest in discussing a future contract. He joined the Bills in 2017 and has been one half of an excellent safety duo alongside Micah Hyde.
Poyer over the past two years has been recognized for his play by being named to the first-team All-Pro team last season and being selected to his first Pro Bowl this year.
This past season, Poyer missed a number of games due to injuries and the Bills got to see exactly what their defense might look like without their starter. In the four games he missed, the Bills went 1-3 but in the games he played, including the playoffs, they were an impressive 13-1.
If the Buffalo Bills lose Jordan Poyer this offseason, it will be a challenge for Brandon Beane to find a player that can bring what Poyer has to this defense.
