With Saturday’s deadline to cut down the roster to the regular-season limit of 53 players, the Buffalo Bills had a busy day Friday.

He became not only a fixture, but an asset, next to Eric Wood (or whomever was playing center during Wood’s injuries). Now that Levitre has taken his talents to Nashville by signing with the Tennessee Titans as an unrestricted free agent, the Bills are searching for his replacement at left guard Doug Marrone’s new, up-tempo offensive scheme.

Despite most of the the football world assuming the Bills would find help in free agency or the draft, the Bills seem content with the options they have on the roster.

With a rookie quarterback potentially taking snaps under center, the protection from the offensive line will be of the utmost importance. Let’s take a look at the options the Bills have on their roster to start at left guard.
