On this episode of Talking Buffalo, the first of a two-part series, Patrick Moran examines the state of the Buffalo Bills with this one being the “sad version”, a list of concerning things about the team as they move onwards towards the 2024 season.
Among the topics Patrick jumps into is the Bills extremely undesirable salary cap situation, a huge factor in 2024 that’s going to leak into several facets of the team. Among them is a handful of potential veteran cuts that would be mostly if not entirely salary cap related—a list Patrick thinks could potentially include Tre White, Mitch Mors and Jordan Poyer among others. Beyond players currently under contract it’s also expected to several prohibit Brandon Beane from going out to get solid veteran depth for the roster like he has over the past four seasons. There’s a slew of pending Bills free agents, including DaQuan Jones, Gabe Davis and AJ Epenesa not to mention quality role players like Taylor Rapp, David Edwards and Tyrel Dodson.
Also, there’s additional worrisome things Patrick talks about—such as Von Miller potentially being washed up, questioning if Matt Milano will be the same player after his severe leg injury, the possibility of more Stefon Diggs drama (and declining production) as well as wondering if this team has gotten as far as it’s going to under Sean McDermott and if these Bills are destined to end up like the a quality NBA team from years ago.
That and more in this intentionally gloomy look at the state of the Bills. Don’t fret though–tomorrow’s show will be significantly more upbeat, it’s the “happy version.”
