The Buffalo Bills roster is set to be settled, except for rookies that will be drafted and undrafted free agents filling out the roster this summer.
Bills general manager Brandon Beane has been extremely busy the past two or three weeks, signing a host of new players.
The biggest name is edge rusher Von Miller, who signed a 6-year, $120 million deal a week and a half ago. Other additions include guard Rodger Saffold, wide receiver Jamison Crowder, tight end OJ Howard, defensive tackle Tim Settle, defensive tackle Daquan Jones and defensive end Jordan Phillips.
The Bills have officially retained another player, who should play an important role on the offensive line in the coming seasons.
The Bills have officially tied the Chicago Bears’ offer sheet for guard Ryan Bates.
The deal was for four years at $17 million; $8.8 million guaranteed.
The money is worthy of someone who is considered a very good young guard in the NFL. This will force the Bills to commit to Bates throughout the 2025 season.
Bears general manager Ryan Poles was disappointed the Bills matched the offer sheet.
Bates was a restricted free agent and because he received the lowest offer from the Bills, he was allowed to get an offer sheet and purchase his services.
The Bears’ contract offer, while not an incredible amount of money, is a sign that the league values Bates and that the Bills now have their starting offensive line set for 2022.
- Dion Dawkins
- Rodger Saffold
- Mitch Morse
- ryan bates
- Spencer Brown
The odds of the Bills taking a 25-pick cornerback or wide receiver in the draft are very high now. A running back like Iowa State’s Breece Hall is also a possibility.
