With the Buffalo Bills re-signing Jordan Phillips to a one-year deal, the team is bringing back the same group of defensive tackles from last season. Phillips is joined by DaQuan Jones, Ed Oliver and Tim Settle and the Bills should certainly feel confident about these four going into the 2023 season based on what they did last season.
However, after this season there is plenty of questions as none of the four on the team is under contract past this season. The front office may want to start adding new players this offseason to avoid being forced to completely overhaul the position next offseason.
The Buffalo Bills could go in a number of different directions in terms of how they add to the position as they will need both one-technique defensive tackles, who are more run-stuffers, and three-technique defensive tackles, who are expected to generate more penetration.
This is a position where teams can find starters in the later rounds of the NFL Draft and it would make sense for the Buffalo Bills to do this to give that player a chance to develop before stepping into a starting role in 2024.
