The Buffalo Bills are working to keep a running back
The Buffalo Bills are working to keep a running back with the team next season. The Bills are trying to clear some cap space ahead of free agency this week. The team has a franchise quarterback in Josh Allen and a talented roster from last season that had a chance to make the AFC Championship Game. Those rosters come at a heavy price and are hard to keep from year to year.
According to Mike Garafolo with the NFL Network, the Bills are working to adjust running back Nyhiem Hines’ contract. He must convert some of his base salary into a signing bonus. The move will give the Bills some wiggle room in the cap hit. Hines will then take a pay cut on the front end. However, he will have the chance to earn more than his previous contract if he completes the incentives the Bills added.
#Bills RB Nyhiem Hines is in the process of reworking his deal to stay in Buffalo, sources say. He’ll convert part of his base salary to signing bonus to provide some cap relief. Incentives added give him the chance to earn more than his previously scheduled $4.79 million in ’23.

The Bills need to be under the cap limit by the start of free agency to sign unrestricted free agents. According to Over The Cap, the Bills are over $19 million in the red as of Monday morning.
