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.
