The Rams are back on the prowl and continue to make moves in bunches. Now, the Rams have extended a two-year offer sheet to Bills standout center Ryan Groy according to Adam Caplan. The Bills will have exactly five days to match the offer otherwise he will become a Los Angeles Ram.
Groy has some history with members on the Rams. For starters he seems to go back with the offensive line coach Aaron Kromer pretty far. Since the moment Groy broke into the league for the Chicago Bears, Kromer was there coaching the offensive line. Shortly after that Groy bounced around the league a little bit and ended up on the Buffalo Bills with yes, Aaron Kromer. So it only makes sense for Groy to follow Kromer to L.A. right? Well, that’s exactly what it seems Groy wants to do.
Even going further back with Groy though is his relationship with starting right tackle Rob Havenstein. They both played at Wisconsin and are friends from their time there. Besides the obvious connections though, Groy makes a world of sense for a Rams team that has been looking for a center since the Marc Bulger era. Now, the Rams are in for a painful game of waiting and that all falls on if the Bills want to bring back their center.
Groy filled in for the injured center Eric Wood last year and played very well for the Bills. He finished the season giving up zero sacks on 539 snaps. It would not be wise for the Bills to give up on a player like this in this writer’s opinion but if you are a Rams fan you will find yourself hoping they do.
If the Bills do not sign him and he goes to the Rams they will be rewarded with no compensation because they tendered him at an original tender which is where the player was originally drafted. Groy is a former undrafted free agent. So the Bills would get no pick and have to rely on Wood not getting hurt again.
