Report: Buffalo Bills sign center Greg Mancz

The Buffalo Bills reportedly signed Greg Mancz center to a one-year deal today. The deal was first reported by ESPN’s Dan Graziano

Mancz, 29, spent the 2021 season as a member of the Miami Dolphins. He started four games at the center of the club and appeared in one other before an ankle injury sent him to injured reserve in November. In the five games he played, Mancz appeared on 58% of Miami’s offensive snaps. He has not been called up for a penalty since the 2018 season.

Mancz originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent, signing with the Houston Texans after the 2015 NFL Draft. He played in three games as a rookie, but he started all sixteen of Houston’s games in 2016. He played every offensive snap that year. Mancz remained with the Texans throughout the 2020 season, making a total of 58 games for the club, making 28 starts.

Houston released him in January 2020, but he signed with the Baltimore Ravens practice squad shortly after. After signing a reserve/futures contract with Baltimore, he remained a Raven until August 2021. The Ravens traded him to Miami along with a seventh-round draft pick, receiving a sixth-round selection in return.

The terms of the contract Mancz signed with Buffalo have not been disclosed, although we assume it is for the veteran minimum. Mancz is an experienced option to serve as a backup for Mitch Morse.
