Bills sign Sean McDermott, Brandon Beane to extensions

Bills’ head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane have been given contract extensions through 2027, the team announced Friday.

No reports suggest the details of the contracts. Some estimate McDermott’s contract to be just under $10 million per season.

The Context

The Bills hired McDermott and Beane in 2017 and have since experienced great success. Over the last six seasons, they have third best overall record in the NFL (62-35). They find themselves only behind the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints during that time span. McDermott has been a finalist for AP Coach of the Year three times. Beane was voted as Executive of the Year by Pro Football Focus, Sporting News, and the Pro Football Writers’ Association in 2020.

While their regular season success has been tremendous, they’ve come up short of reaching the AFC Championship all but one season. They’ve won the AFC East each of the last three seasons, but may face more trouble this year. Aaron Rodgers enters the division for the Jets, while the Patriots and Dolphins added to their rosters.

Expect a more challenging year for the Bills this season. They lost linebacker Tremaine Edmunds via free agency this offseason. They have some major contracts that will kick in in 2024, but their cap situation is fine for now. Beane will have a tricky offseason next year, so the pressure is on to win now. Bills’ ownership are relying on these guys to improve on their recent success.
