After a six-win season in 2013, the Buffalo Bills’ brain trust of general manager Doug Whaley, head coach Doug Marrone and team president Russ Brandon will look to lead the team to improvement in 2014. A major part of that process will play out this offseason as the Bills look to add talent to their roster through the NFL draft, free agency and possibly trades.

The Bills especially need to improve the talent of their offense, which ranked 19th in the NFL in total yards (338.1 per game) and 22nd in points scored (21.2 per game). Still, from quarterback EJ Manuel to left tackle Cordy Glenn and others in between, the Bills have some core pieces to continue building around this offseason.

It’s far too early into Doug Marrone’s coaching tenure to know if the Buffalo Bills picked the right man for the job, but I like that Marrone is not afraid to make roster moves.

On Tuesday, Marrone decided he had seen enough from Colin Brown, and the Buffalo Bills officially announced the release of their left guard who started their first five games of the season.

Contrary to coach Doug Marrone’s claim Friday that the Buffalo Bills would look to add a quarterback from “outside the organization,” they are elevating Thad Lewis from their practice squad to start their next game Sunday versus the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced Monday.

With Saturday’s deadline to cut down the roster to the regular-season limit of 53 players, the Buffalo Bills had a busy day Friday. The Bills released 18 players from their roster, while also placing three injured players on the season-ending injured reserve, in order to cut their roster down to 55 players (the roster was at the 75-player limit prior to the 21 moves, but free safety Jairus Byrd’s roster exemption expires Saturday).

The Bills have not made any stunning releases yet, but they have released a few names who both Ryan Talbot and I had on our final roster projections. Conversely, the Bills have a few players still remaining on their roster who neither Ryan nor I expected to make the team.

The Buffalo Bills head into their preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts with more at stake than most would expect for an early August scrimmage.

With a new coaching staff and organizational philosophy intact, there are many players who are looking to prove that they belong on the new-look Bills. The first game will be an opportunity for some players brought in by the new regime to warm themselves to the Buffalo faithful, while many returning players will need to prove that they can change with the times and fit into the new schemes.

With the starters set to only play a few possessions, Bills fans will need to turn their eyes to the reserves in order to find the most intriguing story lines. For the following players, the pressure on Sunday might be the most palpable.
