NFL Free Agency is set to begin in a little more than a month from now, on March 13. The Buffalo Bills will be looking to add a few pieces and re-sign some of their own. With 21 pending free agents, it's highly unlikely the Bills retain everyone. I wrote a couple of weeks ago about which players the team should try to keep and which ones most likely won't be on the roster in 2024. I also provided other thoughts on the Bills this offseason that will help keep them in contention for a Super Bowl in 2024.

The Bills pending free agents include two wide receivers in Gabe Davis and Trent Sherfield. They currently have Deonte Harty under contract for the 2024 season, but I wouldn't be surprised if he is released to save a few dollars on this year's salary cap. Buffalo recently signed K.J. Hamler to a futures deal, meaning he has a shot to make the Bills roster in 2024. The team also has Andy Isabella, someone many fans want to see more of next season. But Buffalo needs to upgrade their wide receiver two positions, or at least an upgrade in terms of consistency every week.

The Bills could potentially re-sign Gabe Davis but it's going to depend on whether other teams think they can get more out of Davis than what he's put on the field. Spotrac.com has Davis's projected market value set at $13.6 million per year. That is a little high for my taste, but Davis isn't a bad receiver, and his end-of-season numbers are typically solid and he's always one of the top yards per reception guys in the league. The problem is his disappearing acts from one game to the next. I recently wrote about him as a free agent, providing more detail on his situation.

Regardless of whether the Bills re-sign Davis, I hope the team signs one or two new receivers via free agency and add at least two more to the mix through the draft. You could say adding Hamler is essentially a free agent deal and I'm good with that but one more through free agency at a minimum. Who could that be, well I'm glad you asked because I've got a list of six receivers here and all of them carry a smaller projected market value than Davis, according to Spotrac.com. Let's get into it now.
