The Buffalo Bills feel like they're just a piece or two away from being true, no-doubt Super Bowl contenders. But Buffalo doesn't exactly have much cap space to make those improvements, as the Bills are only working with about $5 million this offseason.

Here are three cheap free agents Buffalo could target in 2021.

Buffalo Bills Free Agent Rumors

3. Nelson Agholor, WR, Las Vegas Raiders

Nelson Agholor could be a great low-risk, high-reward gamble for the Bills. He quietly shook off some of the "bust" label he earned with the Philadelphia Eagles last year, turning in a top-10 catch rate on deep (20-plus yard) targets in his lone season with the Las Vegas Raiders. The Buffalo Bills clearly want to throw the ball as much as possible, and you can never have too much depth at wide receiver.

2. Josh Bynes, LB, Cincinnati Bengals

Matt Milano is an impending free agent, and if Buffalo loses him, Josh Bynes could be a nice low-cost replacement. He's not likely to completely offset the potential loss of Milano, but Bynes has done some solid work in coverage in the past. He received a 73.5 grade in that regard from ProFootballFocus in 2019, but a down year in 2020 should means he comes at a discount.

1. Justin Houston, EDGE, Indianapolis Colts

Justin Houston is coming off an 8-sack season. In fact, he's averaging 9.4 sacks per year since 2017. But at 32 years old, he's likely not going to command a big contract. Instead, it's fair to assume Houston will take a cheap one-year deal to compete for a Super Bowl. If that's the case, Buffalo is as good a fit as any. The Bills generated pressure at a bottom-10 rate in 2020, but adding an edge rusher like Houston could take this defense over the top.
