Those years of the Buffalo Bills needing to shell out massive dollars to even get free agents on the phone are a thing of the past.

In Albert Breer’s MMQB column this week, he shined light on that. Things are a complete 180 now.

Per Breer, Buffalo is now a place free agents want to go.  Evidently there’s an example of this potentially unfolding in the coming days.

He wrote this week that the Bills are being contacted by players first and Breer notes how things used to be. According to his report:

The Bills—of Buffalo—are becoming a bit of a destination for veteran free agents. I’m told at least one big-name veteran reached out to the Bills (it’s usually the other way around) to show his interest in them and set up a meeting for his agent at the combine last week. So if the finances work out, it wouldn’t surprise me to see someone like that signed by the Bills.

The years of comments about Buffalo weather and the area in general seem to be a thing of the past.

That has all been quelled by one thing: Winning.

And a big part of wins is the quarterback. Josh Allen alone will attract free agents for years to come.

This offseason’s free agency period begins very soon. Next Monday on March 14 pending free agents can start talking to other teams. They officially cannot be signed until later on in the week but reports usually surface before then that deals have been agreed to.

Stay tuned to see if Breer’s mention of a “big-name veteran” being interest in coming to the Bills holds true.
