5. Re-sign DaQuan Jones

Entering the offseason, Ed Oliver is the only defensive tackle under contract for the Bills. Meanwhile, the five remaining members of the position group are set to become unrestricted free agents, including DaQuan Jones.

Before tearing his pectoral muscle against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, Jones was playing at an all-pro level. Eventually, the veteran defender returned to the starting lineup in Week 16, but he wasn't as effective.

As a result, Jones probably won't cash in this offseason, which allows the Bills to bring him back to Buffalo on an affordable one or two-year deal.

While the team could explore drafting a replacement at the 1-tech defensive tackle position by adding someone like T'Vondre Sweat from the University of Texas, it would still be valuable to have that player learn from a veteran player — or act as a rotational piece — for at least one season.

Assuming that Jones has made a full recovery, he could return to being a quality starter across from Oliver in 2024 — and that would answer plenty of questions for the interior of Buffalo's defensive line.
