‘Morse’ code: Bills need to find the answer at center to replace veteran


The Buffalo Bills have lost many players this offseason due to the salary cap. 

That includes one of the team’s most important pieces – and a vital cog to the team’s turnaround: Mitch Morse. 

Morse played for Buffalo from 2019 to 2023.  He started under center in 77 games and was named to a Pro Bowl in 2022.  One question for Buffalo is who will replace Morse.

One option may be on the roster.  Conner Mcgovern played in all 17 games a season ago at guard.  The Bills restructured his contract two weeks ago and he was not a part of the roster cuts which included Morse.  

Another option would be to look at the NFL draft.  Many analysts are assuming the Bills will look at wide receiver with the 28th pick. 

However a solid center to replace Morse will be vital to their plans to protect Josh Allen. 

Jackson Powers – Johnson of Oregon and Graham Barton of Duke are prospects that they could look at 28 or trade up for in the 2nd round.

Morse recently signed with the Jaguars.  

He started every playoff game in Josh Allen’s career. 

Now, he’ll be asked to do the same for another young signal caller – Trevor Lawrence.

If the Bills which to remain in the running for the playoffs next season they’ll need to find a solid replacement for Morse.
