What day one of Free Agency tells us

Free Agency has been open for 13 hours now and it is confirmed that the Bills will lose their best linebacker to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Aside from that, the Bills haven't done anything of note after day one of Free Agency. What should this be telling Bills fans?

The answer could be one of two possibilities in my opinion. The first is that Buddy Nix didn't really think Poz was worth what he was asking, or what the Bills were willing to pay him. If this is true, then congrats for sticking to his guns and not caving just because of what fan perception could be.

However, it tends to be telling me that the Bills are certainly not owned by Terry Pegula. After watching the Sabres spend freely during the NHL free agent period, and seeing that the salary floor in the NFL had been raised, it made me think the Bills might actually spend some cash. 

I could be proven wrong over the long run, but I am a little disappointed that the Bills were not able to go out and make any noteworthy signings on day one. I understand that Free Agency doesn't really begin until Friday, but it doesn't seem like the Bills are primed to make any big moves. 

Realistically, the Bills are not ready to compete for the playoffs with the roster they have now. They certainly have enough parts to be competitive and keep building toward a potential playoff run next year, but it would have been nice to see a Bills team active in free agency and actually trying to get players to play there. 

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
