Bills AFC East Free Agent Preview

Pro Football Weekly has a free agent preview on the AFC East, and here’s what they have on the Bills heading into free agency.

Unsigned players: LB Akin Ayodele (9), QB Brian Brohm (3), TE Scott Chandler (3), OLB Keith Ellison (5), CB Drayton Florence (8), RB Quinton Ganther (3), WR Felton Huggins (1), DT John McCargo (5), ILB Paul Posluszny (4), OL Garrison Sanborn (2), TE Jonathan Stupar (2), S Donte Whitner (5), S George Wilson (5), OL Mansfield Wrotto (4), CB Ashton Youboty (5).

Analysis: With the exception of Florence, Posluszny and Whitner, the Bills don’t have any impact free agents. Florence and Posluszny are going to be GM Buddy Nix’s top targets to re-sign, and Whitner could be brought back based on his cost on the open market. Depending on what their focus is in the draft — they have the third overall pick — a variety of positions could be targets for Nix in free agency: quarterback, offensive tackle, tight end, defensive end and outside linebacker are all considered needs. The Bills are generally not big spenders in free agency, so don’t expect any flashy signings, although the team will scour the market looking for players who fit its scheme on both sides of the ball. Acquiring more depth at nearly every position on the depth chart, however, is going to be vital for the team to improve on its 4-12 record last season.
