As eight teams remain in contention for the Lombardi Trophy, the other 24 teams have the task of assessing their rosters and preparing for the 2014-15 season. Although they showed marked improvement over the 2012 campaign, the 2013 version of the Buffalo Bills finished with an identical 6-10 record.
To change that, head coach Doug Marrone and general manager Doug Whaley have a lot of personnel decisions to make.
Key players such as Jairus Byrd and Scott Chandler are impending free agents. The two players were leaders on their respective sides of the ball and would leave a significant void if they skipped town.
Meanwhile, the Bills have to consider offering contract extensions to the likes of C.J. Spiller, Fred Jackson, Marcell Dareus and Aaron Williams. Each of these players represents not only the present, but also the future of the organization.
On top of that, the Bills have to evaluate the lower ranks of their roster, including their practice squad and backups, to determine who deserves another chance in 2014.
Let's take a look at some of the players who may or may not be around for the upcoming 2014 season.
