Bills Match Rams’ Offer Sheet For Ryan Groy

The Bills are matching the offer sheet for offensive lineman Ryan Groy, a source tells ESPN.com’s Adam Caplan (on Twitter). The Rams signed him to an offer sheet earlier this week, but they’ll have to look elsewhere for a center.

Groy will now remain in Buffalo on a two-year deal worth $5MM with $3.5MM guaranteed. The Bills rolled the dice a little by giving Groy an original-round tender – which called for zero draft compensation if the former undrafted free agent was signed away – but everything worked out alright for the Bills. They have retained their the interior lineman at a reasonable price.

The Rams cut former starting center Tim Barnes earlier this month and they were hoping to make Groy his replacement.

    I was really hoping the Bills would let him go. I wonder if the Rams can still trade for him if their interest was high enough to warrant it.
