The Bills will go out of their way to make sure G David Edwards remains with the Bills
This one might surprise you, and if you read my other free agency articles about who should be re-signed and who the Bills might lose, you'll be even more surprised. I didn't include David Edwards on the must-sign list initially, but he definitely would have made number six. However, the more I think about it, the more I think he might be more valuable to re-sign than Ty Johnson, whom I did include on the must-sign list.
There are a few reasons I am backtracking on my initial thought regarding Johnson. One is the return of Nyheim Hines, who I thought might be a cap casualty but Beane recently said they do have plans for Hines in the Bills offense in 2024. Also, to save a few dollars, Buffalo could potentially draft a running back late in the draft, instead of re-signing Johnson. The third reason is David Edwards. Edwards was huge this season as a rotational guard and provides some very important depth along the offensive line. Edwards only played on 148 snaps but earned an overall PFF grade of 82.7. He didn't allow a single sack, QB hit, or pressure and committed only one penalty.
