One of the keys to a successful season is having good depth as every NFL team has to deal with injuries over the course of the year. The Buffalo Bills were no different this season as they saw players like Matt Milano, DaQuan Jones, Tre'Davious White, and Damien Harris all miss significant time.
When looking ahead to the offseason, these players may not be big names or parts of that initial wave of free agency. However, they played key roles for the Buffalo Bills this past season and the front office should prioritize bringing them back for 2024.
5 backups the Buffalo Bills must re-sign in the 2024 offseason
Ty Johnson was a mid-season signing for the Buffalo Bills but was a big part of the offense down the stretch. He would appear in 12 games and in the final seven games he had five or more touches in six of them.
The production won't jump out but he was very efficient with the work he did get as he had an average of four or more yards per touch in four of the final five games. At only 26 years old, Johnson could be a great value signing for the Bills that complements James Cook well in the backfield. This is a deal that should be easy to get done and probably done quickly.
