3. Let Gabe Davis walk and draft a wide receiver

After Gabe Davis posted an emotional video to his social media platforms on Monday, at least part of this equation seems like a foregone conclusion.

While Davis was an incredible story for the Bills, he was limited in his ability as an every-down route-runner. The former fourth-round draft choice will always be remembered as "Big-Game Gabe", but unfortunately, he didn't have enough of those games to warrant a second contract in Buffalo.

In fact, Davis was held catchless in four of the Bills regular season games in 2023.

For Buffalo's sake, there couldn't be a better time for Davis to become a free agent. While the team is likely to miss out on top-end talents like Marvin Harrison Jr. or Mike Evans, there is depth in both the free agent and NFL draft classes at wide receiver.

Assuming the Bills part ways with Davis, Trent Sherfield, and Deonte Harty (another possible cap casualty), then perhaps the Bills can use their first-round pick on a pass catcher. After the Bills struggled to push the ball downfield in the team's season-ending loss against the Kansas City Chiefs, the team could consider adding an elite deep threat with top-end speed, like Oregon's Troy Franklin or LSU's Brian Thomas Jr.

And not only are there numerous rookie wide receivers that can instantly become starters at the NFL level, but one of these players could also serve as the eventual replacement to an aging Stefon Diggs who struggled to find consistency down the stretch in 2023.
