3.) DaQuan Jones - Defensive Tackle

DaQuan Jones, not Ed Oliver, is on this list because of not it being a contract year for him but also Jones making an impact for the Bills defensive line in 2022.

Racking up 38 tackles and 2 sacks last season, Jones is expected to be a potential starter for the Bills alongside Ed Oliver who is now the premier defensive tackle for the Bills. Jones played in every game last season for the Bills which makes him a reliable player to help stop the run. 

As Jones goes into his second and potentially final year with the Bills, he will have the opportunity to make his impact to help create pressure and provide help to get the Bills’ offense on the field. While he will be part of a rotation on the defensive line, his presence last season should help him get starting status and make the best of his opportunity.
