Buffalo brought in several new players to replace the likes of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. Additionally, they are relying on several players from the previous roster to perform well, with some taking on entirely new positions. Despite the losses, Buffalo returns the majority of last season's starters, including the entire defensive front, and both linebackers. Leonard Floyd is out, but Buffalo still returns Von Miller, Ed Oliver, DaQuan Jones, and Gregory Rousseau. A.J. Epenesa pencils into that rotation as well.

Buffalo lost Tre White too, but he's been absent for the better part of the last two seasons anyway, and Christian Benford and Rasul Douglas have become one of the best corner tandems in the league. Gone from the offensive side of the ball are Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis. Is the Bills wide receiver room better off now? I think the top-end talent was better with Diggs; however, the WR depth chart is better overall, giving Josh Allen several viable weapons to spread the ball around.

The offensive line is in a bit of flux, with two current players in new positions. This will be interesting to watch throughout the offseason programs too. How well the offensive line performs will be vital to how well the offense rolls in 2024. Protecting Allen is paramount to the success of the Bills this coming season, and Buffalo brought in some new blood here too, with additions like La'el Collins and draft prospect Cedric Van Pran-Granger.
