The free agent signing period has not started yet, but the Bills are making headlines and getting Bills fans excited 6 months before the season even begins. It all began with the signing of Rex Ryan as the Bills next head coach. The next big event was when news broke that the Bills were going to trade Kiko Alonso for running back LeSean McCoy. LeSean fucking McCoy. This is an All-Pro running back coming to Buffalo. Bye bye CJ Spiller. Of course it sucks losing Kiko and #TheLegendOfKikoAlonso, but he is coming off an ACL injury and you never know what you are going to get with that. Also, the fact that the Bills and McCoy agreed to restructure his contract and save some more under the cap is definitely a huge plus.
The next HUGE move the Bills made was the resigning of pass rusher Jerry Hughes. Many had to believe that with the trade of Alonso that the Bills had something in play for Hughes. The former Horn Frog has recorded 10 sacks in his two seasons in Buffalo. The mean could have gotten paid, but he decided to stay with the Bills because the defense is already a top 3 defense in the league, and the offense is coming. The other big news broke today when the Bills made it clear that they would not be releasing Buffalo favorite Fred Jackson. Bilal Powell who? Freddie is the face of the Bills and is the leader not only on the field, but also in the locker room and in the community. He may be the oldest running back in the league, but he does not have the wear and tear like Maurice Jones-Drew who has retired, and Frank Gore.
Oh ya, forgot to mention they brought in quarterback Matt Cassell from the Vikings.
The Bills still have work to do. They need help on the offensive line, could use an athletic tight end, and Darrelle Revis is out there now that the Patriots declined his option. Pretty sure him and Rex are right.
A quarterback wouldn’t hurt as well.
