Buffalo Bills Officially Lose a Player on Offense
The Buffalo Bills roster already looks a bit different than it did a week ago.
For instance, the Bills have stayed busy signing free agents. Those signing include offensive lineman Connor McGovern, quarterback Kyle Allen and wide receivers Deonte Harty and Trent Sherfield.
The Bills have lost a few players, including linebacker Tremaine Edmunds (Chicago Bears), quarterback Case Keenum (Houston Texans) and safety Jaquan Johnson (Las Vegas Raiders).
The Bills lost another longtime player on Monday evening, which happens to be on offense.
Running back Devin Singletary officially signed a one-year contract worth up to $3.75 million with the Houston Texans.
Singletary was drafted in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Florida Atlantic. Despite Singletary's lack of breakaway speed, he found a home in the Bills pass-heavy offense as a shifty back who could use power when asked and improved as a pass-catcher out of the backfield.
Singletary led all running backs for the Bills over the last three seasons in touches, both rushing and receiving.
The four-year pro averaged around 170 rushing attempts per season with the Bills and will likely be asked to split duties with Dameon Pierce in the Texans offense.
This means the Bills likely focus on giving James Cook and Nyheim Hines a majority of the workload at running back in 2023. General manager Brandon Beane said last week they wouldn't hesitate to look for another running back, whether that's free agency or the draft.
Considering what kind of running backs Cook and Hines are, it stands to reason the Bills look for a power-like back to put in the backfield.
