1.) Buffalo Bills not signing Bobby Wagner for the defense

One of the big names and impactful players that the Bills lost was Tremaine Edmunds. He played at a high level which earned him a big contract from the Chicago Bears, leaving the Bills with a hole in the middle of the defense. Edmunds was almost guaranteed to not be back with the team, so the Bills were going to have to find a new player maker at the linebacker position. 

Bobby Wagner was released by the Los Angeles Rams after only one season with them, in which he returned to the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year, $7 million dollar deal. The future hall of famer has been in the league for 11 seasons and has been one of the top players in the league every year. Earning All-Pro status 9 times in 11 seasons, Wagner has been a top three linebacker year in and year out. Even in a down year with the Rams, Wagner posted a stat line of 140 tackles, 6 sacks and 10 quarterback hits. 

Say what you want, Wagner deserves to be paid more than $7 million a year. If the Bills were able to sign Wagner, not only would they fill the biggest hole in their defense, but they would have the presence of a worthy veteran who can mentor the young guys for development. 

With the linebacker position uncertain in Buffalo, they will rely on guys like A.J. Klein, Tyrel Dodson and rookie Dorian Williams to replace Tremaine Edmunds. Having Wagner at $7 million would have been a phenomenal addition for a Sean McDermott-led defense.
