Free agency breakdown Why the Bills bet big on center Mitch Morse and who’s still on their radar

Former Kansas City Chiefs center Mitch Morse intends to sign what is expected to be a four-year, $44.5 million contract with the Buffalo Bills, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The for-year National Football League veteran has started 49 games in his career and figures to be the longterm solution at center for the Bills one year after longtime starter and former Pro Bowler Eric Wood was forced to retire.

Terms of the reported contract have not yet been announced, but Matthew Fairburn of the Athletic Buffalo believes the addition of Morse will be a strong one for the organization.

What signing WR Adam Humphries means for the Titans — NFL free agency
Josh Gordon is suspended indefinitely, and veterans Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson and Phillip Dorsett all are free agents. As of Monday evening, New England had not reached an agreement with any impending free agent.'s Matt Parrino spoke to Kansas City Chiefs beat reporter Tom Martin from KCTV5 in Kansas City today about Morse and what he brings to the Bills. Morse showed in his time with the Chiefs that he could protect their franchise passer Patrick Mahomes.

Morse ended up getting $11 million per year from the Bills so general manager Brandon Beane must not be concerned with the concussion history that caused Morse to spend a chunk of 2018 in the NFL's concussion protocol. He missed several games last season due to a concussion, once again, and the Bills will have to hope he's able to stay clean from any further head concerns or hits. The Bills have almost $80 million in cap space at their disposal this offseason.
