There are just a few teams around the NFL who can go into the 2023 season with the mindset, "Super Bowl or bust." The Buffalo Bills are one of those teams, thanks to what general manager Brandon Beane has done over the last few years.

Headlined by one of the best quarterbacks in football, Josh Allen, and a few of his running mates on both sides of the ball like Stefon Diggs, Matt Milano and Jordan Poyer, the Bills have talent all over this roster.

It truly is one of those years. This season, Buffalo is all-in on the Lombardi. But, before they get there, the roster has to be carved out.

Which players, on the current roster, might not even get much of a chance to prove themselves before seeing those cuts happen later in the summer?

Cameron Kline, DE

As it stands, the Bills' starters at defensive end are future Hall of Famer Von Miller and the younger Gregory Rousseau. Miller is still recovering from a torn ACL, which is why a more recently-signed Leonard Floyd will step into his place, for now. It'll be Floyd and Rousseau to begin the year.

Behind those guys are veterans Shaq Lawson, Boogie Basham and A.J. Epenesa. All three of them should be good to make this roster, with Epenesa being an intriguing highlight as he enters the final year of his rookie contract and is likely playing for a deal elsewhere in 2024.

At the tail end of the roster are Jonathan Kingsley, Cameron Kline and a former first-round pick, Shane Ray, looking to make his NFL combeback. Unfortunately for all three of these guys, they likely won't make the final roster. But, Kline is one who might not even get a shot to prove what he has, being so far behind on the depth chart.
