Bills have exercised their fifth-year contract option on CB Stephon Gilmore.
The Bills are obviously hoping that they exercised the option on the second-half Gilmore and not the first-half guy. Over the early part of the season, Gilmore was toasted by receivers every which way, allowing 22 completions on 27 passes thrown in his direction. In the second half though, he massively improved his coverage skills and allowed just 21 completions on 42 passes thrown his way as quarterbacks made a major attempt to expose his flaws. If he can maintain where he was in the latter half of the season he should prove to be a strong defensive asset. Analysis: Howard Bender
Branden Oliver has spent the offseason working on his power and strength.
Oliver appears to be the guy the Chargers will lean on again in the backfield now that Ryan Mathews is completely gone. Last season, the 23-year old rushed for 582 yards and three touchdowns while also racking up 271 receiving yards and another score. His improved physicality will be a welcomed sight coming off a frail Mathews, but keep in mind that Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown will also see some time as change-of-pace backs Analysis: Howard Bender
