The Buffalo Bills are one of the best teams in the NFL and certainly have a chance to reach the Super Bowl this season. However, there are a number of teams that could claim the same thing and the Bills are likely to have to beat some of them in the playoffs if they hope to reach that final game.

The AFC is easily the toughest conference in the NFL with teams like the Chiefs, Bengals, Jets, Dolphins, and Ravens. If the Buffalo Bills were to able to make any of these five trades, it would likely be enough to make them the clear favorite to win the AFC but some of these trades may not happen until the season.

5 trades to make the Buffalo Bills Super Bowl favorites in 2023

Budda Baker

This is a trade that not only could help the Buffalo Bills this season but also long-term as Budda Baker is one of the top safeties in the NFL and is only 27 years old. He has had four straight Pro Bowl appearances with the Arizona Cardinals with 98 or more tackles each season.

The Cardinals look like they are planning to be rebuilding this season, especially with Kyler Murray unlikely to be available to start the season due to his knee injury. They already released DeAndre Hopkins and Budda Baker reportedly requested a trade this offseason.

While the Bills have Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde under contract this season, Baker could be used on the field either in the nickel or at linebacker. However, he would then be able to step in full-time as a starter next season with Hyde set to be a free agent next offseason.
