1. CBS Sports thinks this former Bill is the team's greatest free agent signing

Free agency has changed the way that teams around the NFL are built and changed how dynasties are made. The Bills have had some great free agent signings through the years but one might top the rest. CBS Sports NFL writer Bryan DeArdo released his list of every team’s greatest free agent signing and for the Bills, he chose wide receiver and special teams ace Steve Tasker.

The special teams star edges out former teammates Kent Hull and James Lofton for the Bills' top spot. A ninth-round pick in the 1985 draft, Tasker was claimed off of waivers by the Bills during the 1986 season. While he was seldom used on offense, Tasker was a force on special teams. He made seven Pro Bowls, including six straight from 1990-95. Tasker's play helped the Bills win an unprecedented four consecutive AFC titles. His blocked punt set up the first touchdown of Super Bowl XXVII.

2. Daryl Williams: "The Most Love I've Ever Felt"

On Friday, March 12, the Bills announced that they had agreed to terms on a contract extension with right tackle Daryl Williams. He told the media over the weekend that one of the biggest reasons he wanted to stay in Buffalo was the guys in the locker room and how selfless everyone on the team is. On Monday, he joined Steve Tasker and Chris Brown on One Bills Live and talked about his extension and what makes the Bills organization so special to be a part of.

"It starts from the top down," Williams told Chris and Steve. "The Pegulas, [Brandon] Beane, [Sean] McDermott, and then the guys that are in the locker room, everyone's good man. They take care of us; they treat us very well and this is the most I've ever felt loved at an organization. I've clicked with the guys in the locker room, so of course, it would be the number one spot I would want to come back to."

3. Jordan Poyer is trying recruit free agent to come to Buffalo

Today at 4 pm, the 2021 league year officially begins. Most of the teams around the league have already started making moves but there are still many quality free agent players out on the market. Throughout the early part of the offseason, while training down in Aventura, Florida, Poyer has been doing his part to trying and recruit free agents to come to Buffalo. The Bills safety was on The Pat McAfee Show last week and talked about some of the players he has been talking to.

"There is a bunch of guys that I train with down there," Poyer said. "Carlos Dunlap was down there, and I was actually trying to recruit him while there. Xavier Rhodes was also down there, and I've been trying to talk in his ear a little bit. Guys are just trying to enjoy the offseason and the business side will handle the business side when that time comes."
