The injuries along the offensive line during training camp gave other players opportunities to play with the starters. One player who appears to have seized that opportunity was David Quessenberry, who the Bills signed as a free agent this offseason to a one-year deal.

The Bills were missing Spencer Brown for most of training camp during team activities and it was Quessenberry who got the start in his place. He played well enough to be listed as the starter on the team’s first depth chart.

For some, the emergence of David Quessenberry may not be overly surprising and recently Pro Football Focus picked one surprise superstar for each team and they selected Quessenberry for the Buffalo Bills. He was originally a sixth round pick by the Houston Texans in 2013 but had to step away from football due to being diagnosed with lymphoma.

He returned to football in 2017 with the Texans but it wasn’t until last year that he got a chance to be a starter and would start every game with the Titans in 2021.

While he is unlikely to be the starter once the season begins, as long as Spencer Brown is healthy, he does solidify the tackle position and gives the Buffalo Bills a quality backup tackle if the need were to arise during the season.
