The NFL trade deadline officially passed on Tuesday and the Buffalo Bills were able to make one deal by acquiring cornerback Rasul Douglas. While it was a good move and will help the defense, the front office should be looking at the free agent market to complete the roster for the stretch run that hopefully ends with a spot in the playoffs.

Even at this point of the season, there are several veterans out there that would provide good depth. The Bills have already made a number of these moves recently by signing cornerback Josh Norman and running back Leonard Fournette.

These are three free agents that the Buffalo Bills should consider signing after the trade deadline.

Adam Shaheen

The first player is Adam Shaheen, who actually had a workout with the Buffalo Bills on Monday. He was originally a second round pick by the Chicago Bears in 2017 and the tight end played three seasons with the Bears.

The Bears would trade Shaheen to the Miami Dolphins in 2020 and he played two seasons there. However, last season he was on injured reserve due to a knee injury. He is a tight end that hasn't really been productive as a receiver as the season-high in receptions for him is 12.

However, the Buffalo Bills are missing Dawson Knox for at least three more games after he had wrist surgery. The addition of Shaheen gives this offense another tight end that would allow them to run the two-tight end sets they were earlier in the season with Dalton Kincaid as the number one tight end.
