After getting overwhelmed in the trenches during their playoff loss to the Bengals, the Bills are addressing their offensive line to begin free agency.

Guard Connor McGovern has agreed to sign with Buffalo on a three-year deal worth $23 million, according to multiple reports.

McGovern was a Cowboys third-round pick in 2019. He missed his rookie season due to injury and started 14 games over the next two seasons.

But he started 15 contests in 2022, setting him up to cash in during free agency.

  1. My entire wish-list for the Bills in FA was “sign a starting-caliber guard.”

    Nice to have it out of the way in the first few hours.

    I’d expect them to sign mainly depth players now, and address starter-level needs in the draft. But a trade wouldn’t surprise me either.

  2. He’s as average as whoever he is replacing. This won’t make Diggs any happier.

  3. The guy he’s replacing must have been horrible if McGovern is any sort of an upgrade. Not sure the Bills get any better with that signing.

  4. Wow!! I saw him get consistently manhandled by average defensive linemen all last season. Good luck with that.

  5. He was the weakest link on the Cowboy’s line last year and left guard is a position that the Cowboys identified as a position of need before the season was over. Cowboys absolutely could not run up the middle for 2 when they needed and he was the biggest reason. Zeke was also another reason and rb was also a position identified as need to draft before the season ended.

  6. He’s an above average guard with youth and versatility. This is a great signing and Dallas will miss him.

  7. Holding number 66 offense. Get used to hearing that Buffalo. At least once or twice a game.
