The Buffalo Bills have strengthened their roster by adding a player to their roster through free agency. They made the announcement on Monday morning that offensive guard Jordan Simmons had agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the team.
Simmons is a former undrafted free agent who graduated from the University of Southern California. He has a height of 6 feet 4 inches and a weight of 339 pounds. When Simmons was playing for the Trojans, persistent knee issues made it difficult for him to break into the starting lineup.
Before playing in 13 games as a redshirt senior on the offensive line and starting two of those games, he even considered switching positions and becoming a defensive tackle at one point.
The Raiders signed a contract with Simmons in 2017. However, the Raiders released him, and the Seattle Seahawks signed him up a year later before he had played a single game for the Raiders.
As a member of the Seahawks, he would appear in a total of 20 games between the 2018 and 2020 seasons, starting the left guard position in nine of those games. He was unable to participate in any games in 2019 due to a knee injury.
After being released from the Seahawks’ practice squad in 2021 and being re-signed to the Las Vegas Raiders, Simmons participated in five further games during the previous season.
