Shaq Lawson won't be on the Buffalo Bills roster in 2024

After being a first-round pick by the Bills back in 2016, Shaq Lawson spent four years in Buffalo. From there, he took a two-year hiatus from the Bills when he played for the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets the following two seasons.

Last year, he returned to Buffalo on a minimal deal and finished the season with a modest 3.5 sacks, six tackles for loss and nine quarterback hits. He still hasn't quite lived up to that first-round billing, but Lawson is a decent depth player to have on the roster.

Still, that won't be good enough to earn yet another contract in 2024. The Bills will look to reshape their edge position around Von Miller and Gregory Rousseau next year, adding different names behind those two, and Lawson won't be one of them.

Latavius Murray won't be on the Buffalo Bills roster in 2024

Talk about the ultimate 1-year rental, here. Veteran Latavius Murray has been efficient no matter where he has played over his 9-year career. It is rare that a guy like Murray can keep his career going this long, at the running back position, and having played for several teams. The Bills are now Murray's sixth team since entering the league back in 2014.

Murray is a fantastic second or third option in the back field and will be serviceable when called upon, but he's not a long-term option.

Running back will probably be another position the Bills reshape next year, with Murray spending just one season in Buffalo and James Cook being maybe the only name remaining from the 2023 group. Speaking of which, let's get to the next guy who fits this conversation.
