Veteran free agents the Buffalo Bills can sign to fill Von Miller’s void: Leonard Floyd

After beginning his career with the Chicago Bears, Leonard Floyd was looked at as somewhat of a bust. He was a former first-round pick who didn’t quite pan out to become the high-tier pass rusher he was drafted to be. However, the last three seasons with the Los Angeles Rams were his best yet as a pro.

Unfortunately, the Rams had to make a decision to cut Floyd in order to rework their payroll. Now, the 30-year-old Floyd enters free agency as a prime free agent. The Bills would likely have to pay more for Floyd than most of the guys on this list, but he could be a difference-maker if Buffalo could find a way to get him even for a year or two.

Over his three seasons in Los Angeles, Floyd tallied 10.5, 9.5 and 9.0 sacks respectively. He was productive year-in and year-out for the Rams, and even won a Super Bowl with the club. Now, he looks for his third team as a pro and Buffalo would be a great fit.

Again, the question becomes whether or not the Bills could afford him. Would Beane fork out the money in order to bring Floyd to Buffalo?
