The Buffalo Bills finished the 2020 NFL Season within one win of making the Super Bowl, coming up short when they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 38-24 in the AFC Championship Game. Projected to be one of the top teams in the AFC again this season, the Bills are looking to make their team better this offseason to get over the hump in 2021.

After roughly three weeks of free agency, here are the top three moves that the Bills have made so far during this offseason.

3. Signing Jacob Hollister

Signing Jacob Hollister isn't going to be a move that makes or breaks the Bills' season, but he is a necessary addition on offense. Before Hollister signed with Buffalo, Dawson Knox was the team's main tight end. Bringing in Hollister gives Josh Allen another option to work with at the position. In two seasons with the Seahawks, Hollister caught 66 passes for 558 yards and 6 touchdowns. He also had a 66.7 catch percentage, proving he can be an additional safety blanket for Allen.

2. Signing Emmanuel Sanders

It was hard for some Bills fans when the team released WR John Brown, but his production was not worth the $8 million price tag it came with. Buffalo opted to replace Brown with Emmanuel Sanders on a one-year, $6 million contract. Sanders played decently with the Saints last season, recording 61 catches for 726 yards and 5 touchdowns. While his best days are behind him, he doesn't have to be the main man while playing alongside Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis. If it works out, Buffalo could have a deadly trio of wideouts on their hands.

1. Re-signing Daryl Williams

Sometimes the best offseason moves involve re-signing your own players. On March 12, the Bills re-signed OT Daryl Williams to a three-year, $28.2 million contract. Williams played in 96% of snaps for the Bills in 2020, allowing only three tackles all season. While offensive linemen can go unnoticed, Williams' role on the Bills can't be understated as he plays a big part in protecting Allen.
