2. Why the Bills need to be active in free agency and the draft
Good Morning Football's Kyle Brandt believes the Bills need to take advantage of the free agency market this year.
"A team that also has a ton of money to spend but was in the playoffs last year – people might not remember there's a team called the Buffalo Bills," Brandt said. "They play in the state of New York. It's a city called Buffalo. It has been a long time, but I would love to see some splash from them because they were there. We're not talking about them in free agency because they're not looking for Brady or Dalton, they already have their good, young quarterback. They're not in the news cycle but I want them to be for other positions."
Brandt thinks it shouldn't stop after free agency either. He sees Buffalo being active during the draft, too. The goal, at the end of the day, is to make moves that help the team win multiple games in the playoffs and make a run at the Super Bowl.
"That is a team that's got power," Brandt explained. "I wish I could show it to you but they got power. They can be the ones to say, Brady's gone and this is our division now. I want to see some offensive juice. I would love to see Amari [Cooper] even A.J. [Green], anybody who's going to make that one more play that they needed to beat the Texans in the playoffs. I want to see Buffalo spend it because they have it, spend it."
3. Many around NFL excited for Devin Singletary's future
Former NFL running back and current Redskins radio network analyst Clinton Portis joined One Bills Live this week and discussed his thoughts on Devin Singletary's rookie season.
Portis is from Florida and went to the University of Miami, so he was familiar with Singletary when he played at FAU. The Miami grad also overlapped for one season, 2001, with Frank Gore. Portis is proud of the way Gore took Singletary under his wing.
"First off I look at the guy that is mentoring him, Frankie G is a hell of a ball player," Portis said. "He is a first ballot Hall of Famer and a former teammate of mine. I know the work that Frankie G puts in. I know he adores Singletary and takes him under his wing."
Portis jokingly said he wishes Singletary would have gone to Miami over FAU based on his production in college. After watching Singletary in his first season in the NFL, Portis is excited for his future.
"I got the opportunity to speak to him at FAU and I watched him in college," Portis said. "I talked to him after the draft and seeing him in Buffalo, it's really exciting to me because that's one of those names that no one was talking about in the draft. No one was on the Singletary bandwagon saying this guy is going to be great. All of a sudden you overlook so many guys. I think it's just having the right focus, having the right mindset. I think he has that focus, that determination to go out and take care of his family and feed his family. He loves football. Those are the kind of players you have to have within an organization, college or NFL."
