Bills could cause off-season sensation to ease taxpayers’ minds
The Buffalo Bills are preparing for the start of unrestricted free agency, which begins the afternoon of March 16.
General manager Brandon Beane has 15 players who should be unrestricted free agents, but the Bills should have little room for 2022, so the team should make some moves (restructures, trades, releases) in order to create enough cap. space to sign his own and/or sign free agents elsewhere.
The Bills could also make a big trade, like potentially tackling Danielle Hunter, the Minnesota Vikings’ disgruntled rush forward.
The other big news for the Bills is the potential new stadium, which by many accounts is close to being accepted by the team, the NFL, Erie County and New York State.

A recent report by Jason Wolf of The Buffalo News, said the NFL could provide $150 million and the Pegulas $200 million, towards the $1.4 billion stadium.
This would mean that a large part of the funding, more than half, would come from taxpayers.
In a recent story by ESPN’s Dan Graziano, given that the Bills and the NFL are about to announce a new stadium that taxpayers would have to pay a significant amount for, the word around the league is that the Bills could make a big splash in free agency this offseason.
To help keep enthusiasm for the team “as high as possible”.
It looks like the new Bills Stadium at Orchard Park, opposite Highmark Stadium, will be a done deal in the coming weeks.
I understand the thought. Take a big step or two to help fan morale and cushion the blow of paying taxpayers’ money for a billionaire’s stadium, but the Bills should still try to improve the team.
