NFL Rumors: Buffalo Bills Looking To Add ''Power Running Back''

The Buffalo Bills are on the hunt for a power running back to bolster their roster. In a statement made by

General Manager Brandon Beane, he indicated that the team is looking for a back with a "heavier, power style" of play.

The Bills' current running backs, James Cook and Nyheim Hines, are considered to be on the lighter side, with Cook weighing in at 190 pounds and Hines at 196 pounds.

It seems that Devin Singletary, who is a free agent, is unlikely to return to the team, at least as the sole addition, as he only weighs 203 pounds at a height of 5-foot-7.

Cook, a second-round pick out of Georgia, had an impressive rookie season in 2022 with 507 rushing yards and two touchdowns in 16 regular season games, while also hauling in 21 passes for 180 yards and another TD.

Hines, on the other hand, is expected to continue in his role as a pass-catching back. However, with the Bills seeking a power back for short-yardage and goal-line duties, it's possible that Cook could see a larger role in the backfield in his second NFL season.

In terms of potential options, the Bills may consider free agent Damien Harris, who played for the New England Patriots in 2021 and has a physical style of play that could fit what the team is looking for.

Alternatively, the Bills may decide to wait until the April draft to target a running back that meets their criteria.
