Assessing Buffalo’s running backs

Devin Singletary took another step forward with his productivity out of the backfield in 2021, but that didn’t stop general manager Brandon Beane from addressing the position this offseason. Besides drafting Cook, the Bills signed Duke Johnson in free agency to compete for reps with Singletary and Zack Moss. Read on below for a break down on Buffalo’s backfield, including discussing whether Moss is on the roster bubble heading into training camp.

Do the Bills have enough depth on the o-line?

The Buffalo Bills re-signed Ryan Bates, added veterans Rodger Saffold, Greg Van Roten, David Quessenberry and Greg Mancz, and drafted Luke Tenuta as additions to their offensive line this offseason. The thought is the Bills’ starters on the line will be: Dion Dawkins (left tackle), Saffold (left guard), Mitch Morse (center), Bates (right guard) and Spencer Brown (right tackle). While the starting five is solid on paper, injuries could force backups like Quessenberry, Mancz, Van Roten and even Cody Ford into the starting lineup. Leading up to training camp, read whether the Bills have enough depth on their offensive line.
