Bills Sign Forrest Lamp

The Bills have signed guard Forrest Lamp to a one-year deal, per a club announcement. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it’s likely for something near the veteran’s minimum.

The Chargers selected Lamp in the second round of the 2017 draft to solidify their offensive line. Considered one of the safest offensive line prospects in the draft, the Western Kentucky product has yet to live up to that billing. Lamp’s first season was spiked by a torn ACL. After a knee procedure in 2018 and a broken ankle in 2019, Lamp suited up for just nine total games in his first three years under contract.

Injuries have kept him on the sidelines for much of his career, but he bounced back last year to play on 100% of his snaps last year. With the Bills, he has a chance to prove that the injury bug is behind him.

    Great pickup for a team searching for guard depth.

    Brandon Beane is really entrenching himself as a formidable force and a perennial candidate for Excutive of the Year.

    Please tell me I’m not the only one here who glanced at the title and though Forrest Gump was running to Orchard Park this coming season!

    Hopefully the light will come on for the young guard.

    I’ll see myself out now.

    Lamp is just what the Bills need to brighten their offensive prospects. He could really shine for them and his power is especially underrated.
