Buffalo Bills’ key additions and subtractions:

Additions:

The biggest move for the Buffalo Bills this offseason was trading for Stefon Diggs. Diggs gives the team a legitimate first target, which is going to help Allen tremendously in his third season under center. With Cole Beasley and John Brown as the second and third options, the Bills have a stout receiving corps.

The Bills also made some solid additions to the defensive side of the ball that is going to make a good defensive team even better. Defensive end Mario Addison, linebacker A.J. Klein, defensive tackle Vernon Butler and defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson are all solid additions that add depth and talent to the defense.

Josh Norman is also a big addition to the secondary as well. While he has not been the Josh Norman of old for several years, he could very well recapture some of that magic and create a devastating 1-2 cornerback combo alongside Tre’Davious White.

The most exciting draft prospect that the Bills selected was running back Zach Moss. Moss is a physical specimen and alongside Devin Singletary, should form a nice running back tandem.

Subtractions:

The biggest free-agent losses that the Bills had this offseason were defensive ends Shaq Lawson and Jordan Phillips, who both signed $30 million deals elsewhere. The Bills did soften the blow with their offseason additions and should be fine, but it does hurt the defense.

Cornerback Kevin Johnson signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, although the secondary should be just fine, and veteran running back Frank Gore is now a member of the New York Jets. But with Singletary and Moss, the Bills are just fine at running back.
