Best Free Agents Signed By The Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills are gearing up for a run to the Super Bowl next season and they might get some outside help from free agents who are knocking out the door to be in Western New York.
According to reports, the team is already getting calls and emails from agents of players who will be free agents about coming to Buffalo to help win a Super Bowl.
Of course, nothing official can happen until noon on Monday, March 14th. That is when the official legal tampering period begins and teams can talk with NFL free agents. The NFL season officially starts on March 16th and that is when free agents can be signed by new teams.
The Buffalo Bills have a great core of people but are close to the salary cap which means they might not be as active as some people hope this off-season in the free-agent market.
The modern-day free agency began in 1993 when players had the option to not resign from a team and choose to move to a new team. Prior to 1993, players like James Lofton could only switch teams when they were released by their old team.
In the past, the Buffalo Bills have made some pretty good and pretty bad moves in the free-agent market. Some of the best free agents signed by the Bills have gone on to win NFL Defensive Player of the year and All-Pro awards.
Hoping to provide some good mojo heading into this season, let's take a look back at some of the best free-agent signings in Bills' history.
