A closer look at Bills free agent bargains

Posted by Chris Brown on July 12, 2016 – 11:08 am

This offseason some NFL clubs threw a ton of money around. Philadelphia and Jacksonville were the most egregious examples ($543M & $357M). There were some interesting figures though concerning the Bills, who made a concerted effort to add free agent bargains who have a respectable amount of playing experience in the league.

Spotrac put together a look at the offseason spending of NFL clubs in 2016 and the Bills ranked 21st in total offseason spending. The contract extensions for Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito were largely responsible for Buffalo’s total spending figure as more than $75M of their $152M spending total went to in-house extensions (49%).

The Bills, despite signing the 11th highest number of free agents this offseason (12), they spent the least amount of money ponying up just over $10.5M.

Buffalo signed a handful of free agents to one-year deals with several agreeing to veteran exemption deals that provides additional cap relief to a team. Among some of the notables in that category were CB Corey White, S Robert Blanton, WR Leonard Hankerson and TE Jim Dray.

The front office did spend a good amount of money on players signed off waivers where they ranked fourth in total spending, committing more than $25M.
