Free agency is in full swing, and the Buffalo Bills have stayed relatively quiet, at least in terms of blockbusters.

While the Bills moves haven’t been groundbreaking, they’ve been somewhat telling as to the direction, and future plans, of the team, at least from a logical standpoint...

The Buffalo Bills have a lot of questions going into free agency, which starts March 9th at 4 PM eastern time.
