Last offseason, during the Buffalo Bills complete overhaul of their offensive line they signed free agent LaAdrian Waddle from the New England Patriots. While he was never a full-time starter for the Patriots he did have some spot starts and ended up starting seven games over his final two years.
The addition of Waddle made sense to provide some veteran depth, along with Ty Nsekhe, behind Dion Dawkins and rookie Cody Ford. However, an injury during training camp ended his season and he never got a chance to suit up for the Buffalo Bills.
This offseason Waddle still hasn’t found a home but a return to Buffalo could make sense. While the team did bring back all starters last year, a shift for Cody Ford from tackle to guard seems inevitable, and if it isn’t this year it likely will be in the future. If the Bills could bring in another tackle with starting experience to potentially be another piece to the puzzle, it seems like the smart move.
