Bills vs. Patriots: Stevie Johnson Not Buffalo's Only Key Impending Free Agent

Much is being made about the Buffalo Bills' regular season finale against the New England Patriots potentially being wide receiver Stevie Johnson's final game in a Bills uniform. This is happening for a good reason: Johnson is a talented young player eyeing a big pay day, and he's poised to do something no other Bills receiver has ever done by recording back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons.

Johnson isn't the only key player potentially playing in his last game, though - he's just the best and most important. Sunday may be the Buffalo swan song for two key impending unrestricted free agents, as well.

Scott Chandler has made the tight end position relevant in Buffalo again. Though he's hardly been a world-beater, he's been highly reliable and dangerous in the red zone in recording 35 receptions, 360 yards and six touchdowns this season.

Bryan Scott, operating out of his hybrid linebacker/strong safety role, is currently fifth on the team with 59 tackles, and he's added a sack, two interceptions and two defensive touchdowns this season. A highly important sub-package player in George Edwards' defense, Scott is also playing the final game of his current contract after spending the last five years in Buffalo.

We know Johnson is the hot topic, but between Chandler and Scott, who - if either - should the Bills prioritize bringing back?
