With draft done, Bills face decision on Allen, Edmunds' contracts

Buffalo general manager Brandon Beane has until Monday to determine whether to commit some $35 million in combined salary for the two stars.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The NFL draft might be over, but Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane is facing two big decisions.

He has until Monday to determine whether to commit some $35 million in combined salary to pick up the fifth-year options for quarterback Josh Allen and middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds.

Beane says the challenge is being able to fit that much money under the team's salary cap.

Buffalo completed the draft by selecting five players over the final four rounds. They included Miami, Ohio, offensive tackle Tommy Doyle and Houston receiver Marquez Stevenson.

On Friday,  the Bills selected Wake Forest edge rusher Carlos Basham with the 61st pick in the NFL draft. Buffalo opened the draft Thursday by selecting University of Miami defensive end Greg Rousseau with the 30th pick.
