Projecting the future of the Buffalo Bills 2025 free agents

The list of Buffalo Bills players slated to hit free agency in 2025 is long, but it's largely guys that were just signed to one-year deals, but let's look at a handful of the key upcoming free agents.

Clearly, I'm not going to be 100 percent accurate on these predictions. I could see a few of these guys possibly getting a second one-year contract; however, Brandon Beane has a lot of picks in next year's draft, plus the team will have considerably more cap space to upgrade some positions. That said, I can see a world where Marquez Valdez-Scantling comes back for a second year, depending on how this coming season goes for him. If he proves a valuable asset to the team's passing game, the Bills may try to keep the receiver corps largely intake. he could return for a second year, depending on how this coming season goes

To follow up on the receivers, I don't think Isabella or KJ Hamler make the roster. Perhaps one or both find a spot on the practice squad, but that is unlikely. La'el Collins is another 2024 cut candidate, and I don't think he survives cut-down day either. I could go through the entire list but I'm only going to name a few more starting with linebacker Deion Jones. He will make the team to add depth to the linebackers but will be a one-and-done with the Bills. Same with the defensive linemen on this list. The additions of DeWayne Carter and Javon Solomon will add the depth the team needs, making the other players obsolete.
