The Buffalo Bills lost a handful of free agents this year yet signed many free agents to help fill out their 2017 roster.
And it’s a good time for a refresher article with some convenient links to other Bills’ housekeeping pieces.
At this moment, per the NFLPA’s Public Salary Cap report, Buffalo has $12.5 million in cap space for 2017. Subtract approximately $6.4 million that’ll be needed for the incoming draft class, and the Bills have $6.1 million in available space. From 2016 to 2017, they carried over $2.8 million.
With that $6.1M, Buffalo could sign a few low-cost veterans and still have some money left to carry over to 2018. Or they very well may choose to carry all of their current cap space over.
