While five NFL teams used the franchise tag and one used the transition tag Monday, the Buffalo Bills decided to use neither, meaning that all of their impending free agents—including defensive end Jerry Hughes, safety Da’Norris Searcy and running back C.J. Spiller—will hit the open market on March 10 unless they are signed to contract extensions before then.

This article is a part of a series on potential free-agent targets for the Buffalo Bills this offseason.

With all of the talent in the 2015 NFL free agent class, the wide receiver position provides numerous options for a team looking to add depth and improve its offense. Pending Baltimore Ravens free agent Torrey Smith is one of those players.

Because the position is top-heavy, as the likes of Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas and Randall Cobb could all potentially hit the market (although Bryant and Thomas are both expected to receive franchise tags), receivers such as Smith, Kenny Britt and Michael Crabtree are flying under the radar.

Ever since his rookie campaign in 2011, Smith has produced for the Ravens. In his first four seasons, he has played in all 64 of their regular-season games and accumulated 30 receiving touchdowns.

Coming off his rookie contract having put up good statistics, Torrey Smith is in line for a pay raise this offseason. Regardless, the Buffalo Bills are in a position to spend and signing a productive player like Smith would add another speedy weapon to their offense.

The Buffalo Bills enter the 2015 season in need of improving their offensive attack, both on the ground and through the air. Since offensive coordinator Greg Roman has already been brought in to re-establish the running game, procuring help for the yet-to-be-named starting quarterback seems like the next logical move.

Kenny Britt, a pending free agent of the St. Louis Rams, is one receiver that may be on the Bills’ radar in the coming weeks.

While all eyes are on the 2015 NFL draft class this week at the NFL Scouting Combine, free agency is just around the corner, as the NFL league year opens up on March 10. As a result, Buffalo Bills free agents were the hot topic of discussion when Bills general manager Doug Whaley spoke with media members in Indianapolis.

I’m not in Indianapolis but as always, significant notes from Whaley’s time with the press spread quickly across the airwaves of Twitter. As such, we can react to some of the news that Whaley revealed today on a number of impending Buffalo Bills free agents, including strong safety Da’Norris Searcy, middle linebacker Brandon Spikes and running back C.J. Spiller.
