25. Buffalo Bills
Losing a talented cornerback like Stephon Gilmore to the New England Patriots hurts even more since it’s a division rival, but his decision to leave the Buffalo Bills shouldn’t have come as a surprise since it was expected all along. After seeing all of the teams in need of help at cornerback, Gilmore was considered one of the top cornerbacks from this year’s free agency class, and bringing him back for a sixth season would have ended up being quite expensive for the Bills.
The good news for Buffalo is the team was able to make a few key moves of their own, including the restructured contract of quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Despite being the starter over the last two seasons, nobody truly knew what was going to happen this offseason between Taylor and the Bills due to his hefty contract, but at least the two sides were able to work out an agreement.
His numbers may not standout like some of the other big-name quarterbacks in the league, but Taylor deserves credit for the way he’s run the offense over the last two seasons when looking at the lack of weapons he’s had to work with in the passing game. Taylor still has a long way to go when it comes to proving he’s Buffalo’s answer at quarterback, but at least the team doesn’t have to worry about that ridiculous contract moving forward.
