Buffalo Bills

The connections between the Buffalo Bills and any former Carolina Panthers players have been there for all to see. Head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane know personnel incredibly well from their time with the organization and Efe Obada has a lot of the same outstanding physical attributes they’ve coveted heavily.

It’s safe to say Obada is a little more than a feel-good story at this juncture.

He is an outstanding NFL player.

Buffalo doesn’t have much in the way of spare money to be throwing around. So they might identify Obada as someone that can bring a tremendous amount to their rotation at a fraction of the cost compared to other big names on the free-agent market.

This would be an enticing prospect for Obada if the Panthers don’t come up with the necessary financial package in return. He would be familiar with the scheme fit implemented so successfully within the Bills and there are plenty of former teammates that could make his transition to a new environment a smooth one.

There appears to be plenty connecting Obada to the Bills, at least from the outside looking in. However, it will take a lot to tempt the player away from an organization that gave him his NFL opportunity.
