The Buffalo Bills are now moving towards the point of clearing of roster spots of veterans so that they can replace them with free agents or through the draft. The positions which I think they need to really target are quarterback, linebacker, offensive line, safety, defensive line, and cornerback.
The management of the team still has some tough decisions that need to be made soon. The team’s hiring of Rex Ryan was not thought out based on the make up of the team compared to what this coach’s philosophy. This is the results of having superior talent that does not mesh with the scheme employed by the coach. The hiring of Sean McDermott to replace Rex Ryan makes the decision of two years ago even worse.
O. J. Howard Tight End Alabama
Fabian Moreau Cornerback UCLA
Marcus Maye Safety Florida
Mack Hollins wide receiver North Carolina
Deveon Smith Running back Michigan
Corn Elder Cornerback Miami
The hometown team has put themselves in such a precarious position by rolling the dice on Rex Ryan two years ago that they have handicapped themselves against the salary cap. That being said they still have enough talent on this team to be competitive in 2017.
