Quinton Spain was a free agent offensive guard who played 48 games over four seasons with the Tennessee Titans who will provide even more protection for second year quarterback, Josh Allen. Once he was named starter in 2016, he has been healthy in only missing six games. This signing provides two major additional things: NFL Draft flexibility as in they can go best player available, and the theory of iron sharpens iron; therefore the best five lineman will start week one.
Quinton Spain provides excellent protection, he didn’t allow a sack in well over 500 snaps for the Titans in 2017 at left guard with them also having a mobile quarterback in Marcus Mariota, he knows how to protect for that trait in a signal caller. He was an undrafted free agent in 2015 out of West Virginia. In 856 total snaps in 2018, Spain allowed just one sack and one QB hit, per ProFootballFocus.com. He’s also a mountain of a man standing 6-foot-4 and weighs 330 pounds,
He was an undrafted free agent in 2015 out of West Virginia and succeeded when Chance Warmack was taken two years prior with the 10th overall pick couldn’t. Quinton Spain is the sixth lineman free agent overall that the Bills have signed this off-season with Ty Nsekhe, LaAdrian Waddle, Mitch Morse, Spencer Long, and Jon Feliciano whom all were brought in as well.
All and all, the Bills knew that protecting Josh Allen was paramount in 2019 after how many hits he took as a rookie, the team didn’t want him to suffer what’s been dubbed David Carr Syndrome. As in the Houston Texans failed to protect their number one overall pick and as a result, he was sacked 249 times in five seasons and seemingly never recovered and was regulated to back up duty for the rest of his career.
