Right tackle has not been a turnstile in Buffalo, but it's been pretty close. Since 2018, the Bills have trotted out different players at the position, hoping one might catch on. Heading into 2023, right tackle is a concern yet again.
Spencer Brown has struggled to stay on the field since the Bills drafted him 93rd overall in 2021. His stature perfectly fits the role, but he's often lost battles to speed rushers. Along with displaying visible inconsistencies, Brown has battled injuries.
After enduring back surgery following his rookie season, he was sidelined last season with an ankle injury suffered in Buffalo's Week 6 triumph over the Kansas City Chiefs. During the 2023 training camp, Brown was seen displaying 'visible stiffness' while leaving the field accompanied by trainers.
The Bills added depth to right Tackle by signing Germain Ifedi, an eight-year veteran on his fourth NFL Team. He has played primarily right tackle but also saw time at right guard during his short tenure in Chicago. Ifedi is listed as Brown's backup on Buffalo's depth chart but will almost surely see playing time with Brown's ongoing unavailability.
Buffalo currently has two additional linemen on its practice squad who can be called up to the active roster if needed. However, the question about the stability of the position still weighs.
