The Buffalo Bills are signing free-agent offensive guard Quinton Spain, according to his agency, SportsTrust Advisors. The 6’4” 330 lb Spain will become the sixth free-agent offensive lineman to sign with the team in 2019 (joining Mitch Morse, Ty Nsekhe, Jon Feliciano, LaAdrian Waddle, and Spencer Long).
Spain, originally signed as an undrafted free agent from West Virginia University, has played for the Tennessee Titans over the past four seasons. He first claimed a starting role in his rookie year, playing in seven games and starting six. From there, he spent the next three seasons as Tennessee’s left guard, starting 42 of a possible 48 games. The Titans placed a restricted-free-agent tender on Spain before the 2018 season, and this is his first time reaching unrestricted free agency.
With Spain on board, the Bills now have a legitimate starter competition at both left guard (Spain, Wyatt Teller) and right guard (Vladimir Ducasse, Spencer Long, Jon Feliciano). It’s also fair to speculate that Ducasse could be cut soon, which could save the team $2 million against the salary cap.
