[BN] Blitz newsletter: Bills are 'staring at a virtual blank financial slate' entering 2019

The Buffalo Bills are in one of the NFL's most enviable salary cap situations entering 2019, Mark Gaughan wrote Monday.

The team has the third-most salary cap space entering this season and, right now, has the most space available in 2020.

Adding in the fact that the Bills' franchise quarterback is on a team-friendly rookie contract, the Bills appear to be set up nicely for the future.

But that doesn't mean the Bills will be able to fill their needs all at once.

“Bills fans should not get their hopes up of an immediate turnaround,” said Charley Casserly, the former NFL general manager and current NFL Network analyst. “I think it’s going to be a process."

Another one bites the dust: Following the release of Charles Clay, the Bills have only five players under contract that predate Sean McDermott, who is entering his third season as coach. They are Jerry Hughes, LeSean McCoy, Lorenzo Alexander, Shaq Lawson and Reid Ferguson. A handful of others are free agents.
