It has been a very interesting off-season in the NFL with some high profile trades and even higher profile signings in free agency.

We saw a second consecutive draft with two quarterbacks taken with the first two picks and the question of the quarterback situation in Denver be the biggest issue anywhere in the league.

Off-season winners

A lot of teams have strengthened this off-season and it could be argued that teams like the Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets and LA Rams have made the biggest moves, one other team believes that they have done better than anyone.

Rex Ryan, head coach of the Buffalo Bills has today been quoted as saying that he believes that his team have in fact won the off-season.

Buffalo certainly haven't made the splashes that New England Patriots did by trading for Martellus Bennett or the Arizona Cardinals when they traded for Chandler Jones.

But Buffalo have done some good work and Ryan is very happy with what he has seen during their mini camps.

"But I do [think we've won the offseason]. Again, I don't know about these other teams -- I'm sure they've had some great camps, too -- but I've been really impressed with this group."

Ryan is enthusiastic as they head towards training camp in which he will face all of the same questions that every head coach in the league will now face.

Ryan saw his team get a third place finish in the AFC East last year and with the Patriots and Jets having strengthened this off-season also, his team will have to step up.

2016 is set to be one of the biggest seasons in recent memory with several teams set to emerge from relative obscurity, but the Bills will have to play hard if they intend on being one of them.

Comeback years

The upcoming season is being hyped by many teams with the likes of the Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars and even the Tennessee Titans all set for better years.

The AFC should be more open this year than in recent years meaning that the 2016 play-offs could be the most unpredictable in recent memory.
