As the 2023 version of NFL free agency rages on, Buffalo Bills fans are likely more focused on the draft coming up.
The Bills entered free agency without a whole lot of breathing room, financially speaking, and ended up making a few in-house moves to get themselves under the salary cap. While they did ink a few outside free agents, none were necessarily big, household names.
Connor McGovern was probably their best outside signing, who will come in and take Rodger Saffold’s place along the offensive line. Otherwise, the moves have been fairly minor.
With that in mind, there are certainly some free agent signings that could end up losing their current job or roles, if not find themselves cut altogether before the season begins.
Buffalo Bills free agent signings who could lose their job: Cam Lewis, CB
One of the Bills’ own that they chose to bring back is 25-year-old cornerback Cam Lewis, the former Buffalo University product who didn’t have to travel far to join his first pro team back in 2020.
Lewis hasn’t been a large part of this defense since joining Buffalo three years ago, but he’s been more of a depth piece. He’s hardly played on defense, but last year played over 50 percent of special teams snaps in what was his biggest role to date.
Sitting pretty low on the depth chart, Lewis is definitely in danger of losing a job altogether, especially considering the Bills still need to add more depth at cornerback. Last year got a little scary at times, with Tre’Davious White recovering from injury and Kaiir Elam enduring an inconsistent rookie year.
If the Bills drafted another cornerback within the first three or four rounds, there’s a good chance Lewis might find himself pushed out of the picture.
