With the regular season over, the Buffalo Bills have turned their attention to the offseason. The team's first priority is re-signing its own players, and the Bills have several key contributors they need to bring back next season, but also a few they could elect to get rid of. Here are three players the Bills may cut this offseason:
QB Tyrod Taylor
Buffalo gave Tyrod Taylor a $100 million extension before the season started, but now want him to restructure that deal or they may go in a different direction at the position. Taylor is not willing to restructure that deal, meaning it's pretty much guaranteed the Bills will cut him to save over $30 million. General manager Doug Whaley has also said he is comfortable going into 2017 with Cardale Jones as Buffalo's starting quarterback.
K Dan Carpenter
This one is pretty simple. Carpenter is on the books for just under $3 million next season, but he has really struggled since the extra point was moved back. He has missed 11 extra points over the course of the last two seasons and only made 76 percent of his field goals in 2016. It's simply time for the Bills to move on.
SS Aaron Williams
Cutting Williams would be an extremely tough call for Buffalo. He is currently set to be the Bills' highest-paid defensive back in 2017 (Stephon Gilmore could change that) with $6.625 million owed to him, but had suffered serious neck injuries each of the last two seasons. Williams is a valued contributor on defense, yet his injury history may be too much for Buffalo.Back to the Buffalo Bills Newsfeed
