As the Buffalo Bills have worked through the final days of training camp at St. John Fisher, I figured it was time for our readers to weigh in on Brandon Beane and the job he has done as general manager of the team. There is no denying that Beane has been active on the trade market since taking over, including a number of moves since the end of last season.
Here are some of the highlights from Beane, and his staff, during the 2018 offseason:
- Signed Vontae Davis and Chris Ivory prior to the start of free agency
- Signed free agents Star Lotulelei, Trent Murphy, AJ McCarron, and Russell Bodine
- Traded Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns for a 3rd round pick
- Packaged Cordy Glenn and the 21st overall selection to the Cincinnati Bengals for the 11th overall pick
- Traded up to the 7th overall pick to select Josh Allen in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft
- Sent the 22nd and 65th picks in the draft to the Baltimore Ravens to select Tremaine Edmunds with the 16th pick
- Drafted Harrison Phillips, Taron Johnson, Siran Neal, Wyatt Teller, Ray-Ray McCloud and Austin Proehl
- Negotiated a pay cut then ultimately released Richie Incognito
- Traded a late round pick in 2020 to the Browns for wide receiver Corey Coleman.
