STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL

  Inside Slant | Notes, Quotes | Strategy and Personnel | Player Wire

  FREE-AGENT UPDATE

Players scheduled to be unrestricted free agents: LB Larry Dean, WR Marcus Easley, OL Chris Hairston, DE Jerry Hughes, LB Brandon Spikes, G Erik Pears, SS Da'Norris Searcy, TE Lee Smith, LB Sylvester Stevenson, WR Deonte Thompson, DE Jarius Wynn.

TEAM NEEDS

1. Quarterback: EJ Manuel is the only viable one on the roster, and it's uncertain what the new coaching staff thinks of him. The Bills have to add at least two, and it seems the plan might be to sign a veteran free agent (Josh McCown has already been in for a visit) and then draft someone in the middle rounds. This is not a good quarterback draft, though, so it's possible the Bills, with only six draft picks in 2015, don't spend one on a player who likely would be of no use to the team, at least right away.

2. Offensive line: The Bills have addressed one guard spot by signing free agent Richie Incognito. If Rex Ryan isn't enamored with Chris Williams, who signed a four-year deal in 2014 and then played only three games due to a back injury, then the other guard spot is on the table. The Bills drafted three linemen last year, and while Seantrel Henderson played every snap at right tackle, he certainly didn't look like a star in the making. The Bills need to upgrade everywhere but center and left tackle.

3. Running back: C.J. Spiller is a free agent and is probably signing elsewhere. Fred Jackson is 34 years old. Bryce Brown hasn't proven he can be a full-time back, and Anthony Dixon certainly isn't that. The Bills may use their second-round pick, No. 50 overall, to address this need.
