CBS Sports: Contract prediction for Bills free agent RB Devin Singletary
Devin Singletary is set to hit the free-agent market in the coming weeks. How much could he fetch in his next contract?
CBS Sports took a guess in their rankings of free-agent running backs.
The outlet named Singletary as just the ninth-best pending free agent running back. In slotting him in there, CBS Sports predicts Singletary’s next deal will net him somewhere around $5.5 million per year.
With free agency starting on March 15, the Bills sit near $19M over the 2023 salary cap. In order to retain some of their top pending free agents like Singletary, Buffalo general manager Brandon Beane has a long ways to go to put the club in a position to do so.
While some in Buffalo might consider other pending free agents such as defenders Jordan Poyer and Tremaine Edmunds a high priority to re-sign, they’ll also cost Buffalo more to retain. There could be a world where others decide to leave the Bills and the team circles back to Singletary.
Regardless, at this time, it appears Singletary is likely to at least test the free-agent market.
CBS Sports‘ full breakdown on the Singletary projection can be found below:
The running back position is likely one the Bills will be looking to upgrade this offseason, and that means Singletary could be gone. The Florida Atlantic product crossed 1,000 scrimmage yards for the second straight season and added six total touchdowns in 2022. In 61 career games for the Bills, Singletary has recorded 3,151 rushing yards and 16 total touchdowns. Keep in mind the Bills drafted James Cook last offseason and traded for Nyheim Hines in November.
