Over the course of this offseason, through free agency and the 2023 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have their work cut out for them.
First and foremost, they have to figure out a way to manipulate the salary cap in their favor. Being over the cap by a good chunk isn’t an ideal way to start out the offseason, but many teams are in the same boat, and getting under is very doable.
General manager Brandon Beane will use restructures, releases, among other strategies to ensure he can make the moves he needs to make in order to get the Bills in shape for a Super Bowl run this next season.
One of the areas the Bills might need some help is at running back. With Devin Singletary entering free agency, it is very likely the Bills move on and search for a replacement.

Monday morning, it was reported that the Bills very well could have an option via the trade block. The Tennessee Titans have begun shopping running back Derrick Henry, according to NFL Network’s Mike Silver.
If Beane can figure out a way to get this team under the cap and make it realistically possible to acquire Henry from the Titans, the Bills are one of the few teams who should take the risk and make a move like this.
Henry is entering the final year of his contract, and his cap number is just over $16 million. The Titans can save $6 million by cutting him, but a trade is also an option.
Buffalo is a couple of pieces away from making a Super Bowl run, and if they can find a way to land Henry, then Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs and company would look a whole lot more lethal in the coming year. Adding arguably the best running back in football over the past five years or so would be one heck of a way to start the offseason.
