Drew Stafford has one year remaining on his contract, but there's speculation that he'll probably stay in Buffalo.

Stafford also regained the alternate captaincy he lost earlier in the year and should serve as a leader in 2014-15. Buffalo needs forwards who can score and although Stafford is streaky, he is capable of producing. He is also playing for a new contract, which could motivate him further.
