PFF says Bills should re-sign DaQuan Jones

The Buffalo Bills have plenty of free agents

Their salary cap situation ahead of 2024 isn’t looking good, either. Currently the team is more than $40 million over the cap.

General manager Brandon Beane has his work cut out for him. But if he finds the space, Pro Football Focus has picked one player Buffalo should re-sign among their pending free agents:  Defensive tackle DaQuan Jones.

Jones put up 2.5 sacks in 2023 but had a pectoral injury disrupt things. The start to his year was much better, but even so, PFF thinks bringing the 32-year-old back for another season would make sense.

Here is PFF’s breakdown on Jones re-signing in Buffalo:

The Bills got a lot out of rotational defensive linemen this year, with a handful of guys stepping up at critical points throughout the season, but the lack of interior defensive line depth alongside Ed Oliver makes Jones’ return all the more important

Edge defenders Leonard Floyd and A.J. Epenesa also stepped up in 2023 in the absence of Von Miller, and Floyd, in particular, performed well on his one-year flier. But the lack of interior defender depth led to late-season additions like Linval Joseph playing meaningful snaps for Buffalo. Before getting hurt, Jones had the highest pressure rate among all interior defenders through Week 4 (20.8%).
