David Quessenberry returns on a one-year deal for much needed depth

The other move that the Buffalo Bills made on the offensive line was to reportedly bring back David Quessenberry, who signed as a free agent last offseason. Quessenberry is a veteran offensive tackle that can play both left and right tackle and showed that last season with at least one start in both spots.

The addition of Quessenberry gives the Buffalo Bills flexibility heading into the NFL Draft to the point if a good tackle falls to them, it wouldn’t stop them from adding that player. However, if that is not the case he is a player that could push Spencer Brown heading into a pivotal year.

Damien Harris gives Buffalo Bills their power back

The Buffalo Bills signed veteran running back Damien Harris to a one-year deal and he looks to be the replacement for Devin Singletary. The skillset that Harris brings should be a better fit in this backfield alongside James Cook as he runs with more power and can pick up those tough yards in between the tackles.

The fact that is primarily just a runner and not much of a threat as a receiver may be viewed as a negative but I think it just solidifies that James Cook is going to be a bigger part of this offense in 2023. The addition of Harris on a short-term deal that addresses a need was another great move by general manager Brandon Beane and was one of my favorites this offseason.
