(photo: Josh Templon, Flickr)Here's a list of this offseason's free agents, and as you can see, the group of former Bills makes up a large chunk of it.Last year's starter in Ryan Fitzpatrick was on the list after getting cut by the team earlier this year and before signing with the Tennessee Titans.

Manuel for a starting gig, from free agency.Follow Nick @NickStDenisFollow AFC East Daily @AFCEastDaily
