Insider Reveals Potential Bills GM Brandon Beane Trade Plans Before Deadline and explains why it’s necessary…

The Buffalo Bills (4-3) are facing challenges as they prepare for a Thursday Night Football matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-3). They have been dealing with injuries and some inconsistencies, prompting discussions about whether they’ll make a trade before the October 31 trade deadline.

ESPN Insider Jeremy Fowler believes that Bills general manager Brandon Beane might make a significant move. The Bills have been dealing with injuries at defensive tackle and linebacker, leaving them somewhat depleted in the middle of their defense. Fowler suggests that finding some reinforcements in those positions would make sense, although he acknowledges that there aren’t many available options that fit well. He points out that Minnesota linebacker Jordan Hicks could provide experience and leadership to the Bills, but Buffalo is also interested in developing their young linebackers. When Ed Oliver returns, the defensive tackle spot will have a four-man rotation. Overall, Fowler leans toward the idea that Buffalo might not make a move, but he highlights Beane’s history of bold decisions late in the trade window.

The Bills have lost key defensive starters, and their defense has raised concerns after allowing the New England Patriots to score 29 points in their recent loss. Randy Mueller of The Athletic believes that the Bills may have no choice but to make a trade to address their defensive issues. Mueller suggests that Beane could contact the Denver Broncos for a trade involving defensive tackle Mike Purcell or inside linebacker Josey Jewell. He believes that both players would benefit from joining the Bills and should fit within the team’s salary cap.

Additionally, the Bills are exploring options to improve their offense. They recently restructured Dion Dawkins’ contract to create more cap space, leading to discussions about adding another receiver before the trade deadline. With quarterback Josh Allen and the offense struggling in the first halves of recent games, the Bills are looking for more consistency in their passing game, especially with tight end Dawson Knox injured. Potential targets include wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, Panthers’ Terrace Marshall, or Vikings’ Adam Thielen. However, the Bills may stick with their current offensive weapons if Gabe Davis and Dalton Kincaid perform well against Tampa Bay.
