The Bills had to make some changes this offseason to get under the league's salary cap, which resulted in the release of Mitch Morse, Jordan Poyer, and Tre'Davious White. Also gone are Gabe Davis, signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency, and Micah Hyde could potentially retire. In addition, the Bills traded Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans as if that wasn't enough. But, they also signed several new names, including wide receiver Curtis Samuel, Mack Hollins, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Chase Claypool, among others. However, according to CBSSports.com, none of these decisions move the needle as much as drafting Keon Coleman with the 33rd pick in the NFL Draft.

"Naturally, Buffalo used its first pick of the 2024 NFL Draft to select Keon Coleman, a dynamic 6-foot-4 wideout who weighs 215 pounds, to fill the void left by Diggs ' departure. Coleman led the ACC in both touchdown catches (11) and punt return yards (300) last season at Florida State. He provides a wide catch radius and some wiggle after the catch for Bills Pro Bowl quarterback Josh Allen, something they desperately needed. "

I'm not in agreement that this was the Bills best offseason move. I'd say the Diggs trade fits that bill. You can say he was the team's best receiver, and statistically, you would be right; however, the production was not there down the stretch, and the drama surrounding him was a distraction. That said, fans will quickly forget about Diggs if Coleman can be productive and he should provide the team with a viable endzone threat with his jump-ball abilities.

Coleman has already taken Bills Mafia by storm with his personality, and he's made some plays in OTAs and minicamp to excite the fanbase further. Will it translate to training camp when the pads come on, and into the regular season? Bills Mafia has their fingers crossed that it will happen. At 6'4", he's unlike most other receivers in recent years with the Bills and certainly in Josh Allen's tenure with the team. The new look Bills offense should be interesting this season.
