The upcoming NFL free agency period will be the Buffalo Bills’ first under new ownership. As of now, Buffalo will begin the March 10th signing period with a war chest of around $27 million, according to Mike Rodak of ESPN.

There are a few Bills who could be in line for new contracts this offseason, including unrestricted Jerry Hughes and defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who would otherwise play on a fifth-year option on his rookie contract. But looking beyond current players on Buffalo’s roster, some have regarded this 2015 free agency class as “the best ever.” The Bills have some voids to fill and knowing general manager Doug Whaley, he’s already busy scheming on how to improve the roster for 2015.

One position Buffalo should upgrade at is tight end. Current starter Scott Chandler stands tall at 6’7″, but has just average speed, which allows opposing teams to cover him with just one defender. Enter Cleveland Browns unrestricted free agent tight end Jordan Cameron, who broke out during the 2013 season and has already expressed his desire to leave Cleveland, according to a report by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports (h/t Jason Marcum of cincyjungle.com).

The start of free agency is more than a month away, but the Buffalo Bills have already made a move to address one of their biggest needs. The Buffalo Bills have reached an agreement in principle to sign veteran guard Richie Incognito, who is best known for his role in the Miami Dolphins’ 2013 bullying scandal.

The news of Incognito visiting the Bills for a physical was first reported by James Walker of ESPN.com on Friday. Tim Graham of The Buffalo News was the first to report that Incognito would sign with Buffalo.

The Buffalo Bills finished the 2013 season second in the NFL in total rushing yards, just behind the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2014, that strength became a weakness and Buffalo plummeted to 25th in rushing, averaging just under 93 yards a game. Having a banged-up group of running backs was only half the problem, as the offensive line up front—especially the guards—also struggled for most of the season.

At left guard, Chris Williams appeared in just three games before being assigned to injured reserve with a nagging back ailment. Rookie fifth-round pick Cyril Richardson started four games, but was clearly overwhelmed and eventually replaced by Kraig Urbik. At right guard, Erik Pears graded out as one of the worst players at his position in the entire league.

New head coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman will surely evaluate this offseason which offensive linemen they can work with that are currently on the roster, but even with a new coaching staff on board, Doug Whaley would be wise to try and find an experienced and reliable guard in free agency to help Buffalo re-establish its run game.

The connotation of the word “linebacker” has changed within the past few years. As more and more teams are using linebackers as pass-rushers and putting them on the line of scrimmage with their hand in the dirt, it has created a need for distinction between edge linebackers and off-the-ball linebackers.

TCU’s Paul Dawson fits the latter category as a traditional, stand-up linebacker. He has the potential to be one of the first off-ball linebackers selected in the 2015 NFL draft.

Listed at 6’2″ and 230 pounds by TCU’s official athletics website, Dawson is a former high school wide receiver and junior college transfer who has made a significant impact on TCU’s defense. He was the only player in the Football Bowl Subdivision with 100 tackles, five sacks, and four interceptions in 2014.
