Bills match Rams’ offer sheet for Ryan Groy

The only┬árestricted free agent to sign an offer sheet with a new team so far this year is center Ryan Groy and he won’t be leaving the Bills.

The Rams signed Groy to a two-year, $5 million offer sheet on Tuesday, which left the Bills with five days to decide whether they would match the deal or not. They didn’t need that long, though, as Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that they have already matched the deal.

Groy was tendered at the lowest level, so he’ll see a bump in pay from the $1.797 million he would have received under the tender. He started seven games after Eric Wood broke his leg in the middle of last season and Wood will be a free agent after the 2017 season, so Groy could be groomed as his successor while providing interior depth in the meantime.

    Next to signing Tyrod Taylor, this is perhaps the best move made by the Bills this offseason.

    Very good move to re-sign him. He’s a good player.

    I love Eric Wood but honestly never even noticed he was out with Groy in there

    How about a few WRs? Or are they going to call me and sign me up?

    This was the best offseason move by Buffalo.

    Nice signing. Can replace wood or either guard if needed.

    I didn’t think Chris Hogan was worth $12 million when the Bills didn’t match last year. I would have been pissed if they let Groy go. We did not miss a beat at center and lead the league in rushing for the season when Groy started the last 7 games. He can play guard too. He is young. He can even swing out to tackle in a pinch. The Rams made him an offer to be their starter at center. Now that I think about it – we have Groy for 2 years now – we should make Eric Wood restructure

    ====================

    If you put a turn style in either one of their places I doubt you would see a diffence also.
