The Buffalo Bills made an addition to the offensive line this week, getting the free agency signings underway early in 2019.
The Bills are at it once again as the team signed Spencer Long, one week after the offensive lineman had been let go by the New York Jets. This is why he was able to be signed, as he did not enter the offseason as a free agent.
Long joins the team as someone who could contribute in 2019, but he is not assured a spot in any sense.
That salary does not include the potential guaranteed money he is owed, so if that figure is low then Long is not automatically a starter. I’m assuming most of that is not guaranteed.
We shall see.

Anyway, here is the latest Bills news in today’s Morning Charge.
