Leading up to the 2023 NFL season, the Buffalo Bills are going to have to cut their current roster almost in half from 90 players currently to 53 shortly before their first game against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. During this time, the coaching staff is going to be evaluating players and will have to make some tough decisions and likely have to cut some good players.
However, this is the case for every NFL team and the Buffalo Bills should pay close attention to which players could be cut prior to the 2023 NFL season as they may be good fits for this team.

One of the big trades during the season last year was when the Chicago Bears sent a second round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for Chase Claypool. The thought process was sound in the fact that Justin Fields looked to be the franchise quarterback they have desperately needed but the offense could use a number one wide receiver that Fields could lean on.
Chase Claypool had a promising start to his career with over 1,600 receiving yards and 11 receiving touchdowns in his first two seasons in the NFL. This past season though he did not make the same impact as he had only 14 receptions and 140 yards in seven games before the Steelers traded him.
The change of scenery really didn't help as he had only 32 receptions, 311 receiving yards, and one touchdown in eight games. There have now been reports, like this one from the local ESPN radio station, that the Bears aren't happy with Claypool.
If he is actually cut, the Buffalo Bills could be an intriguing landing spot as he has incredible size for wide receivers. He would add some depth at the position and be utilized in the red zone where the team could take advantage of that size.
