EJ Gaines is now hurt.
In the last few years it cannot be claimed that the Bills were particularly bad at drafting. They built an impressive roster of talent.
The team has had such a round robin of personnel in the FO and at coaching, that they've never been able to establish that talent in a coherent sense. So, the Bills invested a 2nd for Reggie Ragland in 2016, (probably an excellent value as he was projected as a 1st rounder). However, the new coach comes in with a complete change in defensive scheme, and Reggie looked lost. So, the Bills trade him to KC for a 4th; they recover some value vs. and outright release. But turning 2nds into 4ths makes the team poorer. They saw a similar diminished return for Sammy Watkins.
The reason that the Bills have been spinning their wheels at +/-1 .500 football for the last few seasons is because they don't know how to build a team in a consistent fashion. They're lurching around and they suck for it. This year they may get out of their rut and really break out - no, not another 7-9 or 8-8 season! This year the Bills may finish 3-13.
Almost had it.
