Buffalo Bills fan opinions of Brandon Beane’s first season as general manager

New, comments

What do Bills fans think of Brandon Beane?

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane didn’t take over until after the 2017 NFL Draft. He was officially hired in May, replacing Doug Whaley, and was seemingly handpicked by head coach Sean McDermott, who worked with him in Carolina.

What Beane has done to re-shape the roster in the time he has been in town is downright remarkable, and he’s shown a propensity to make big moves he thought were in the best interest of the team.

Here is a list of what Beane has done in his time in Buffalo. Leave your approval in the poll at the end of the post and your thoughts on Beane in the comments section. As we enter the 2018 offseason, are you comfortable with Beane as the Bills general manager?
