All teams have free agents every year, but the Bills have almost 25 at the moment
This does not count the players on the practice squad that become Free Agents as well. 

Brandon Beane has a lot of work to do.  He better find a couple of safeties and Olinemen. 

  1. Tremaine Edmunds, LB/S
  2. Devin Singletary, RB
  3. Jordan Phillips, DT
  4. Shaq Lawson, DE
  5. Dane Jackson, CB
  6. Cam Lewis, CB
  7. Jordan Poyer, S
  8. Dean Marlowe, Safety
  9. Jacquan Johnson, Safety
  10. Case Keenum, QB
  11. Rodger Saffold, LG
  12. David Quessenberry, OL
  13. Greg Van Roten, OL
  14. Bobby Hart, OL
  15. Ike Boettger, OL
  16. Justin Murray, OL
  17. Sam Martin, Punter
  18. Jamison Crowder, WR
  19. Jake Kumerow, WR
  20. Taiwan Jones, RB

I don’t even know who to keep at this point. They maybe have 15 caliber starting players? Allen, Diggs, Morse, Dawkins, Knox, Oliver, Roseau, White, Hyde, Elam, Milano, Bass, Miller, Davis, Cook? The last two are big maybes. Bates? Edmunds if they can keep him. Poyer is old. Singletary would be a waste. Dane Jackson can’t get out of here soon enough.

He’s only got 5 draft picks I believe. We traded the 6th and 7th. Gonna be a long season in 2023

The 7th was traded for Dean Marlowe.  Who is now a free agent.

The 6th was for Nyheim Hines.

Poyer is gone. Accept it. I would think given the state of the offense they have to bring back Edmunds and just go heavy on offense in draft. Find a safety round 3-4.

I think about how Bill Belichek handled players like Jordan Poyer.  

He would trade a player one year before the end of the contract, especially if they were over 30 years old. 

We ran him to the end of his contract.  He will be 32 in April.  I don't think they will sign him.  I think he hits free agency.

I will miss him.   Jordan Poyer has been great while he has been in Buffalo. 

I think the Bills will be looking at drafting a safety.   Maybe they draft 2 of them if they don't sign a top free agent safety.  

Keep an eye on Jordan Battle, JL Skinner, Jammie Robinson,  and Sydney Brown in the draft.   Go Bills.

And more good news, the Bills are 5 million over the cap with only 39 players signed

 

https://overthecap.com/salary-cap-space

 

Even better, this one say 8 million over with 39 players signed

But wait, fans say the Cap doesn't matter.   LOL

The reality is that Beane is going to have to be cautious with his dollars.     And he will have to let some players go in Free Agency.

Devin Singletary, Tremaine Edmunds, and Jordan Poyer will be the biggest potential contracts.   I would not fault Brandon if he let all 3 walk.

Even guys like Case Keenum may not be back.   The Bills can't afford a lot for their 2nd string QB.

I think Edmunds has to be resigned with a contract that is team friendly for 2024, but then goes up in 2025.  I do not want to waste a 1st round pick on a LB again for several years.  Poyer is still good but paying a guy big money at 32 who was injured all year...let him test the market see what he can get.

Gotta resign the punter but that should be a low cost contract.

Personally the Bills died when they paid Von Miller all that money and he got hurt!  Should of had an injury clause...Now we have a huge amount of money sunk in to a guy who is not going to play at all next year.

Next year would be a good year for Josh to have surgery on his elbow.....Embrace the Tank and retool for two years like the Bengals did lol

You can't lose Bobby Hart.

You can put him in a trash can and bring him to the curb on trash day, they won't take him away.

Just like if you take a broken or otherwise unneeded garbage pail/container to the curb.  They will NOT take it away.

So next week you take that garbage can and you write a huge paper note on it with a thick red marker -- GARBAGE -- and they write back with their sharpie -- YEAH WE KNOW -- but they won't take it away.

That. is Bobby Hart.

He's a boomerang that you can't throw away.

He is a yoyo.

He is that garbage you can't throw away.

Yup.

I will miss Rachel Bush however her and the lucky guy who actually plays on the team when NOT "injured" due to sexual exhaustion.

Edmunds has been dead to me for a while now and he truly is NOT even a $10M/yr NFL LB will no doubt get the $15M+/yr he wants.  The poor team will regret it immediately.  All Tarzan plays like Jane.  No real instinct of where the play is going.  He simply guesses.  I bet he does not take his video prep seriously.

What about Oliver?

Did we extend his 5th year under his rookie contract?

The thing with Oliver is you need a big run stuffer to compliment him or he gets swallowed up bad. DQuan Jones was a huge loss on Sunday.

  • Round 3, Pick 91
  • Round 4, Pick 128
  • Round 5, Pick 135 (from Arizona)
  • Round 5, Pick 160

6 picks - you were right about no 6th or 7th round picks.

We knew that going into the 2022 Draft and simply refused to draft a DT1 in the first 3 rounds.

Huh?

We are NOT going to extend Oliver BEFORE the 2023 season starts?

Another wasted first round pick.
