Bills bring back two O-Linemen in free agency deals

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — Two key offensive linemen will be re-joining the Buffalo Bills in two separate deals made on Monday.

OL Ike Boettger will return on a one-year deal.

Boettger went undrafted out of Iowa in 2018 but has turned into a key starter on the Bills offense. Last season, Boettger started 10 of the 15 games he played in. His season was cut short when he tore his achilles against the New England Patriots in week 15.

Exact numbers of Boettger’s deal were not disclosed.

Buffalo also matched a four-year offer sheet the Chicago Bears gave to OL Ryan Bates. Bates hasn’t missed a start in each of the past two seasons, a consistent piece in the lineup.
