Devin Singletary

The final player is one who wasn't with Buffalo last season but did play four years in Western New York from 2019 to 2022. Devin Singletary was a third round pick by the Bills in 2019 and typically finished the season as the leading rusher but during his time in Buffalo he never broke 1,000 rushing yards.

This past season was a similar story for Singletary with the Houston Texans as he had 898 rushing yards on 216 carries with four rushing touchdowns. He certainly was productive but has never really been that game-changing lead running back that can carry that part of an offense.

However, he is now heading to the New York Giants on a three-year deal worth $16.5 million and the average salary per year of the contract ranks 14th among running backs. He will also be replacing one of the best running backs in the league in Saquon Barkley, who would sign with the Philadelphia Eagles.

When considering the contract and who he is replacing, expectations are going to be very high and likely unattainable.
