The Buffalo Bills fought their way to a 10-6 record last season, continuing to improve their team. This season, they look in position not only to contend for the AFC East title, but also for a Super Bowl ring. With a stout defense and a strong group of offensive weapons, Bills Mafia is excited for what is to come.

Bills GM Brandon Beane has done a terrific job leaving his mark on this roster and shaping it to contend. Here are the three best contracts on the Bills' current roster.

1. Josh Allen, QB

The Bills have found themselves in a position to contend with their franchise quarterback still on his rookie contract. This is the best way to contend, if you nail your quarterback selection, since the team is able to spend elsewhere. Josh Allen is being paid just $21,183,038 over four years, making his deal worth less than three percent of the team's salary cap. Buffalo will eventually need to fork over some money for their big passer, but they will enjoy his rookie deal for now.

2. Micah Hyde, FS

Since coming over from the Green Bay Packers, Micah Hyde has been among the best safeties in the NFL, even forcing his way into the Defensive Player of the Year conversations at times. The defensive back signed to the Bills for $30.5 million over five years, making him a free agent in 2022. Hyde extremely versatile in the secondary for Buffalo, thriving in his natural safety position, but capable of covering both wide receivers and tight ends in man coverage as well as playing in the box on rushing downs. This makes him a bargain at his current contract.

3. Dion Dawkins, LT

Heading into the final season of his rookie contract, Dion Dawkins has been strong up front for the Bills. Protecting Allen's blindside, he has done an admiral job of keeping the scramble-happy Allen upright. Last season, Dawkins allowed just 4 sacks and committed just 11 penalties on the season (tied for the eighth fewest among left tackles). His full contract was worth $4,183,239 over four seasons, and he's owed just $1.3 million this season. That's an absolute bargain at another position that typically commands big money.
