In the late stages of free agency, the Buffalo Bills are adding to their offensive line.

They are doing so with with the signing of right tackle Bobby Hart, who has plenty of starting experience in the last few years.

In three seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, Hart started 45 games.

Does that mean he's good?

Once upon a time, a center by the name of Russell Bodine signed with the Bills after starting 64-consecutive games for the Bengals.

Let's just say it did not go well in Buffalo for Bodine.

Hart has never received rave reviews for his play, but Pro Football Focus did give him his highest grade of his career in 2020 with a 66.3 out of 100.

In 13 starts in 2020, Hart took just three penalties, after getting 27 flags in his first 45 career starts.

Given that general manager Brandon Beane and the Bills signed Hart this late in free agency, and the fact that Daryl Williams was just re-signed, Hart is likely not going to be asked to be anything more than depth.

The Bills also have Ryan Bates, Ike Boettger, Jordan Devey, and Trey Adams for depth on the offensive line.
