Buffalo Bills o-line shuffle: Jordan Devey signs, Jonotthan Harrison departs

The game of musical chairs along the offensive line has begun...

The Buffalo Bills face plenty of questions this offseason along the offensive line, as seven members there are free agents, including three who started the AFC Championship game: left guard Ike Boettger (restricted free agent), right guard Jon Feliciano (unrestricted free agent) and right tackle Daryl Williams (unrestricted free agent).

In the early days of the offseason, the Bills have brought back one offensive lineman while saying goodbye to another.

Buffalo signed guard Jordan Devey to a one-year contract on Monday, while lineman Jonotthan Harrison agreed to a one-year, $2 million futures deal with the New York Giants on Sunday.

Listed at 6’6” and 320 lbs, Devey appeared in one game with the Bills in 2020, seeing the field for two snaps in the Week 7 win against the New York Jets. That playing time came on the heels of his being promoted from the practice squad on an emergency basis because of COVID-19.

Devey, 33, was frequently listed as one of Buffalo’s protected practice squad players, and he was eventually promoted to Buffalo’s active 53-man roster leading up to the AFC Divisional round game against the Baltimore Ravens following a season-ending ankle injury to running back Zack Moss.

In eight seasons in the NFL, Devey has made 44 career appearances (21 starts) during stints with the Bills, Las Vegas Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, and New England Patriots.

Harrison, 29, was a member of Buffalo’s practice squad in 2020. He was elevated to the game roster for Buffalo’s Week 15 win over the Denver Broncos but did not earn any playing time.

Entering his eighth year in the league, Harrison has played in 84 career games (42 starts) with the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Jets.

With Devey returning and Harrison departing, Buffalo’s remaining free agents on the offensive line, besides Boettger, Feliciano and Williams, are tackle Ty Nsekhe and guard Brian Winters.
