Buffalo, N.Y. (WGR 550) - A year ago, the Buffalo Bills re-signed offensive lineman Ike Boettger to a one-year deal. That came even though he was still recovering from Achilles surgery stemming from an injury suffered just three months prior to that, and knowing he wouldn’t be ready to play for most of 2022.
That was a clear indication they wanted to keep him around even beyond 2022 and bring him back again in 2023.
That happened on Friday when the team announced it has re-signed Boettger - again - to another one-year deal.
Boettger entered the NFL with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa in 2018. He was originally waived and briefly joined the Kansas City Chiefs before being waived again and re-joining the Bills.
Since then, in five seasons with the Bills, he’s played 34 games, starting 17 of them.
Boettger is very versatile, as he can play both guard and center. That's something the organization highly values in offensive linemen.
