When you take all of the Buffalo Bills' pending free agents off of the team's depth chart, the thing starts to look really messy. Here's to a productive off-season, Buddy Nix.
With the 2013 NFL Combine set to kick off tomorrow and free agency beginning within the month, we wanted to take another quick look at where the Buffalo Bills stand as the heavy off-season lifting begins. There's no better way to do that, in my opinion, than with a depth chart.
There are 59 names on the below depth chart. A further 16 - all of them free agents (that list is after the depth chart) - are not slotted; the idea here is to line the Bills up with players under contract, then fill the chart out as more players are signed to deals (or, as the case may be, more players are cut).
The thing looks pretty thin, no? Good luck over these next few months, Buddy Nix and company.
