2013 Buffalo Bills off-season: 33 new players added

Looking for a one-stop summary of the Buffalo Bills' roster moves this off-season? You've come to the right place.


If you're sensing that it's been a busy off-season for the Buffalo Bills, you're right: the team has added a whopping 33 new players this off-season as the transition to Doug Marrone and his new coaching staff continues. 19 players have made their exits, as well.

A reader going by "Drew R" (we're assuming it's not Rosenhaus) has asked for a post showing all of the transactions that the Bills have made over the past few months. We've been tracking each move in far more detail in this StoryStream, but if you're looking for the nuts and bolts - i.e. a list of the additions and subtractions this spring - this post is for you.
