RT Ryan Clady
If it weren’t for the right tackle position, the Buffalo Bills‘ offensive line would be solid across the board. Unfortunately, Jordan Mills hasn’t panned out as well as expected and after re-signing him for two years this offseason, he will likely be the team’s starter next season.
That’s only if the Bills don’t sign or draft someone better. At the very least, the team could add some competition for Mills — which sometimes gives a player that extra motivation.

Ryan Clady could be a veteran pickup for the Buffalo Bills at right tackle. He is entering his tenth season in the league and could find a late-career push with the No. 1 rushing attack in the NFL. Plus, he has earned four Pro Bowl appearances and was named to 2 All-Pro teams in his career.
With the Bills re-signing Mills, he would be a great backup tackle to have in case injuries arise. For that reason, signing Clady could be a smart move for the Bills. Over the past 4 seasons, Clady has missed 37 games due to injuries and played in 27 games. When on the field, he’s still a reliable tackle that doesn’t allow a lot of sacks.
With the way Mills performed the past two years, I can’t see him starting next season unless he shows massive improvement this offseason. In my opinion, the Buffalo Bills are better off grabbing another lineman — either through free agency or the draft — that could add competition at the position.
Clady would fit that bill perfectly, but Buffalo would have to ensure he’s healthy enough.
Next, we have an option if the Buffalo Bills decide to move on from Zach Brown.
