The Buffalo Bills created some cap space on Thursday with the restructuring the contract of tight end Tyler Kroft.

On Monday, the team was able to use that cap space to re-sign veteran guard Quinton Spain to a three-year deal with an average salary of $5 million per-year.

Spain started all 16 games for the Bills last season and graded as one of the better blocking guards in football. Spain did not allow a single sack of quarterback Josh Allen this season while he took to the left guard position.

The 28-year-old had previously played four seasons with the Tennessee Titans, where he appeared in 50 games.

Signing Spain didn't cost the Bills a fortune, and it locks up another starting position headed into free agency and the NFL Draft, where the Bills can focus their resources elsewhere.

The Bills reportedly also picked up the option on depth interior lineman Spencer Long earlier in the week, so there may not be much left for the Bills to do on the offensive line.
