New Bills Player Explains Why Buffalo is a Top NFL Destination
The Buffalo Bills have mostly the same team from 2021. They have the core in place, with Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Devin Singletary, Dawson Knox, Dion Dawkins, Mitch Morse, Matt Milano, Jordan Poyer, Micah Hyde, Tre'Davious White, Taron Johnson and Ed Oliver all returning.
But general manager Brandon Beane was busy in March and April, adding new pieces to the Bills, especially on the defensive line.
They made the biggest splash in free agency, signing edge rusher Von Miller to a 7-year deal. They also signed defensive tackles Tim Settle and Jordan Phillips and defensive end, Shaq Lawson. Phillips and Lawson return to Buffalo after leaving in 2020.
Another player the Bills added is defensive tackle, DaQuan Jones.
Jones broke into the league in 2014 with the Tennessee Titans and played there through 2020. He played last season with the Carolina Panthers.
Jones adds depth to a now pretty stacked defensive line. He was a guest on the Jim Rome radio show this week, and when Rome mentioned how Micah Hyde said Buffalo used to be a place players never wanted to go, now, they do want to come here.
Jones said that is absolutely true.
"I don't think you can talk about the Bills and not talk about winning," said Jones. That has a lot to do with people wanting to come here in free agency," added Jones.
Jones said he was on the number two defense last year, but Buffalo was number one and wanted to come here when free agency hit.
10 years ago, Buffalo was likely the last place free agents wanted to come to. Now, the Bills are great but the change in facilities should also be talked about.
The Field House became the Adpro Sports Training Center, with the best weight room in the league and tons of other upgrades. The Bills also have arguably the best locker room in the NFL. I've been in there and it's nicer in person than in videos.
Now, the Bills are getting a new, state-of-the-art stadium. Buffalo is finally a top destination in the NFL.
