Bleacher Report's major storyline for Buffalo Bills following minicamp is over-hyped

It's the topic of the Bills offseason. After so much roster churn, can Buffalo maintain their division dominance, and finally get over the playoff hump?

I would much rather answer questions around the Bills roster turnover and changes at the wide receiver, than those about cryptic tweets from a disgruntled receiver. That said, the answers that Bills Mafia is looking for, won't be answered until the new season kicks off in September. But that won't stop media outlets like Bleacher Report from asking questions and posing the concerns.

"Gone are wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis, safety Jordan Poyer, cornerback Tre'Davious White, linebacker Tyrel Dodson and edge-rusher Leonard Floyd, all of whom served as core contributors on either side of the ball. Bills general manager Brandon Beane sent a clear message this offseason that making the divisional round isn't enough."

I get it, those are some big names that are gone. But let's be honest with ourselves, the team hasn't had White for the better part of two seasons anyway, Poyer and Hyde weren't the same players they were in previous seasons, Tyrel Dodson was a rotational, depth piece and only played primarily due to Matt Milano's injury. Floyd disappeared when needed, recording zero sacks over the last five games of the season, including the playoffs. Gabe Davis might be the most inconsistent receiver in the league, vanishing from existence for weeks at a time. The only real possible loss, was Stefon Diggs, but then again, what exactly did he do over the last half of the regular season and the playoffs?

Is the Bufalo Bills Super Bowl window closing?

On the offensive side of the ball, the Bills are returning eight of 11 starters. The players being replaced are Diggs, Davis, and center Mitch Morse. On defense, outside of Floyd, the entire defensive front is back, both starting linebackers, Terrel Bernard and Milano, are back, as are both starting outside corners, Christian Benford and Rasul Douglas, plus nickel Taron Johnson. If you want to count Floyd as a starter in a heavy defensive line rotation, the Bills are returning eight starters on that side of the ball. Buffalo's so-called "Super Bowl window" is still wide open, and as long as Josh Allen is behind center, this will be the case for years to come.
