The Buffalo Bills finally landed the veteran wide receiver help they were looking for when they traded a sixth-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Mike Williams on Friday.

The trade seems like a win-win move for both teams. The Buccaneers were ready to move on from Williams, who comes in with a history of off-field trouble and was recently stabbed in the thigh, and likely would have released him if unable to secure a trade partner. If he can keep himself on the right path, however, the Bills acquired a starting-caliber wideout at a low cost.

Stevie Johnson has been the Buffalo Bills’ leading wide receiver for each of the past four seasons, and is under contract with the Bills for three more seasons, but a disappointing 2013 season has led some Bills supporters to sour on Johnson heading into the 2014 season.

Some even believe the Bills should move on from Johnson through a trade or release.

Despite his past production, Johnson has consistently been somewhat of an enigma, a player known as well for his antics and costly drops as he has been for his key role in Buffalo’s passing offense. By catching just 52 passes for 597 yards and three touchdowns last season, Johnson no longer had the production to overshadow his perceived flaws.

Additionally, the Bills could consider Johnson a potential cap casualty, a decision that would likely be made by March because as ESPN’s Mike Rodak explained, he is set to receive a $1.75 million roster bonus in March.

Should this offseason be the time for the Bills move on from Johnson and escalating contract? Ryan Glaze thinks it is. Dan Hope, however, thinks the Bills should remain fully committed to Johnson for at least the 2014 season.

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.

On the NFL’s “Black Monday” for coaching changes, the Buffalo Bills made a change of their own when they announced during their end-of-year press conference Monday that wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard was “no longer with” the organization as wide receivers coach.

While it is uncertain whether the decision for Hilliard to depart was made in a firing by the team or by Hilliard himself, Bills head coach Doug Marrone said he and Hilliard had a “difference in philosophy,” according to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News.

The Buffalo Bills were attempting to make a playoff push going into their Week 13 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. Getting help from other AFC teams to keep them within reach of the conference’s sixth playoff speed, they had a chance to keep a playoff run alive with a win Sunday, but they did not.
