1. Re-sign A.J. Epenesa

Despite only starting in three games over the past two seasons, Bills defensive end A.J. Epenesa has recorded 13 sacks, which ties him for a team-high with Gregory Rousseau over that same span.

Epenesa, a former second-round draft pick, recorded 6.5 sacks while breaking up 8 passes and intercepting two more in 2023. With Von Miller on a steep decline and Leonard Floyd expected to test the free agent market in hopes of chasing some extra money, the Bills should do everything in their power to bring Epenesa back to Buffalo.

If Epenesa is allowed to start alongside Rousseau in 2023, he could be a major breakout candidate for the Bills. Not to mention, the 25-year-old pass rusher would give the Bills some insurance on Miller, assuming that he's unable to find his game after returning from the second ACL surgery of his career.

Before the Bills make any decisions, however, they'll need to find creative ways to get themselves under the salary cap. Other than cutting a handful of players, they can restructure the contracts of players like quarterback Josh Allen to free up millions of dollars.

Luckily for the Bills, general manager Brandon Beane is amongst the league's best at creating space to add players on the free agent market — and in recent years, the team has done a pretty good job of drafting starters, as well.

While this isn't a foolproof blueprint to the Bills offseason, at least some of these moves could go a long way towards helping the team reach its first Super Bowl of the Allen-era in 2024.
