A valuable asset is now up for grabs in the market with the Buffalo Bills recently releasing sixth-year guard Quinton Spain. He previously served as a full-time starter for four straight seasons dating back to his stint with the Tennessee Titans and recently with the Bills, as per ESPN’s Field Yates.
The Bills released veteran G Quinton Spain. A 29-year old who has been basically a full-time starter for four straight seasons is now available for teams looking for interior OL help.

Despite being abruptly dropped by the team, it is expected that the 29-year-old will eventually be snagged by other teams who are in dire need of an extra body for their depleted offensive line. The Chicago Bears currently have a subpar offensive linemen unit with right guard James Daniels suffering a season-ending pectoral muscle tear in a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The struggling Philadelphia Eagles could also be a suitor for Spain who are looking to add more protection for quarterback Carson Wentz. Sophomore offensive tackle Andre Dillard is out for the year while veteran guard Brandon Brooks is on the physically unable to play list for a long-term basis.
Offensive tackle Jason Peters and guard Isaac Seumalo are both on the team’s injured reserve list while offensive tackle Lane Johnson has been dealing with a nagging ankle injury since August.
Rookie guard Jack Driscoll left in the fourth quarter of their matchup against the Baltimore Ravens with a sustained ankle injury while guard Matt Pryor also missed the encounter due to being named on the NFL’s COVID list.
The Kansas City Chiefs could also benefit by adding him on their roster while the Dallas Cowboys could also show interest especially with All-Pro guard Zach Martin recently sustaining an apparent neck or shoulder injury in the tilt against the Arizona Cardinals.
With a number of teams needing the services of a reliable offensive lineman for the remainder of the season, it is almost certain that Quinton Spain will be able to find a new home in the near future.
