It’s being rumored that the Buffalo Bills are talking to San Diego Chargers‘ left guard Louis Vasquez which would further show a change in offensive mindset; from pass first with the spread offense to more of a pro-style offense focused on the run. If Vasquez is brought in as well, this offensive line would be excellent when the weather turns bad, and it does fast in Western New York due to his immense size.
If the Bills bring in Vasquez and let Andy Levitre walk, here is what the offensive line could potentially look like week one of the 2013 NFL Season:
LT Cordy Glenn – 6’6″, 345 lbs.
LG Louis Vasquez – 6’5″, 335 lbs.
C Eric Wood – 6’4″, 311 lbs.
RG Kraig Urbik – 6’5″, 324 lbs.
RT Chris Hairston – 6’6″, 332 lbs.
The new look Bills offensive line average size would be a gigantic 6’5″, 329 lbs, and it would be all guys general manager Buddy Nix had a say in adding except for Wood. However, he is scheduled to hit free agency after this upcoming season and we will see if he is brought back to the team.
The almighty question is now how much money does Vasquez want? One can only hope it’s a reasonably affordable long-term (maybe four or five years and 16-20 million dollars) deal so the Bills can sign more than just him in the off-season as there are more team needs to fill before the draft starts on April 25th.
