2021 NFL Free Agency: Buffalo Bills hosting former Colts tackle Le’Raven Clark

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills are hosting former Indianapolis Colts offensive tackle Le’Raven Clark on a free-agent visit, per ESPN’s Field Yates. General manager Brandon Beane loves adding bodies to the offensive line room during this time in the offseason and Clark would fit as a reserve offensive tackle.

Clark is a former third-round draft choice of the Colts. He’s played in 47 games, starting just 15, in five years with Indy. He was inactive or did not play in every game during the 2019 season, but the Colts still re-signed him to a one-year deal for 2020.

In 2020, Clark started three games for the injured Anthony Castonzo before tearing his Achilles in Week 13. With an injury like that on December 6, it’s unlikely Clark is ready to go right now. That’s typically an 11 or 12-month injury recovery time.

While the Bills have Dion Dawkins and Daryl Williams locked in at left tackle and right tackle, respectively, they have a need for backup tackles following the departure of Ty Nsekhe. They signed Bobby Hart in March and Ryan Bates can play some tackle. Cody Ford is also an option, though the team seems settled in placing him at guard. They also have 2020 UDFA Trey Adams on the roster.
