Another promising season ended in disappointment for the Buffalo Bills, who reached the playoffs but fell short of the Super Bowl for the fourth year in a row.
While the Bills have featured one of the NFL's best offenses and defenses in recent years, it's clear they still have some work to do if they want to win their first Super Bowl in franchise history. With a couple of key moves in free agency this offseason, they could finally put themselves over the top and win it all next year.
Accordingly, here are three free agents that Buffalo needs to sign to win the Super Bowl in 2023.
Bills Free Agency
1. Tony Pollard, RB
One of Buffalo's biggest weaknesses in recent years has been the lack of a consistent running game. Accordingly, the Bills would be wise to sign a big-name free agent to lead the backfield this offseason. While Saquon Barkley, Josh Jacobs and Miles Sanders are all intriguing options, Tony Pollard may be the best fit. He's emerged as one of the best dual-threat running backs in the NFL over the past couple of seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, exceeding 1,000 scrimmage yards on both 2021 and 2022. He also split carries with Ezekiel Elliott, which means he doesn't have as much wear and tear on his body as some of the other workhorse RBs in this year's free-agent class. After suffering a broken leg during the postseason, his price may come down as well.
2. JuJu Smith-Schuster
Buffalo would benefit from a true No. 2 receiver to complement Stefon Diggs in the passing game (assuming Diggs sticks around), as Gabriel Davis has been too hit-or-miss to consistently rely on and is better suited as a deep threat. Enter JuJu Smith-Schuster, who would be a perfect fit out of the slot. Smith-Schuster is coming off a strong bounce-back year with the Kansas City Chiefs and has proven he can be a 1,000-yard receiver when healthy, making him a worthwhile addition to this Bills offense.
3. Mike McGlinchey, OT
The Bills could use some help on the offensive line, which was incredibly banged up by the time the playoffs rolled around. Mike McGlinchey would be a good fit as one of the best offensive linemen on the market this year. He was rock-solid with the San Francisco 49ers in 2022, allowing just 23 pressures and 5 sacks in 17 games while playing 94% of the offensive snaps. Upgrading the offensive line would naturally improve the running game as well, killing two birds with one stone.
