4. Cut Tre'Davious White and extend Rasul Douglas

This won't be easy, but it's time.

Since being drafted in 2017, Tre'Davious White has not only flourished into an all-pro cornerback, but he's also become one of the most well-liked people at One Bills Drive.

But White will be coming off his second season-ending leg injury in the past three years, and he's missed 34 of the Bills past 57 games, including the playoffs. While the team is hopeful that White can return to form in 2024, the Bills can save more than 18 million dollars over the next two seasons by releasing the 29-year-old cornerback before June 1st.

Subsequently, the Bills can save nearly 7 million dollars by extending Rasul Douglas — and for a team that's strapped against the cap, every penny will count.

It was previously hard to imagine this version of Bills football without White, but the Bills have fared well in his absence. With the emergence of Christian Benford and the addition of Douglas at last year's trade deadline, the Bills have an opportunity to make White a cap casualty this offseason.

When it's considered that Douglas has a cleaner injury history and six takeaways in his first nine starts for the Bills, it could be safer for the team to swap their investments at cornerback this offseason.
