The Buffalo Bills have re-signed offensive lineman Garret McGhin. The signing won’t alter their plans in the 2020 NFL Draft.
McGhin was originally signed as an undrafted free agent in 2019 before being placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury on August 20th during roster cutdown. He was released with an injury settlement a few days later.
McGhin then joined the Carolina Panthers practice squad on November 12th before being promoted to their active roster on November 25th. (Ironically, McGhin was originally injured in the Bills’ preseason game against Carolina.) He played two regular season games before being placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury. He was waived by Carolina in March after a regime change.
The biggest value for McGhin comes from his versatility. In college, he played right tackle and all the interior offensive linemen positions. He seems like a perfect practice squad candidate right now and could back up positions across the offensive line.
Behind the returning starting line of Dion Dawkins, Quinton Spain, Mitch Morse, Jon Feliciano, and the right tackle platoon of Cody Ford and Ty Nsekhe, Buffalo has great depth with returning depth interior linemen Spencer Long and Ike Boettger, newly signed tackle Darryl Williams, and McGhin.
