The Buffalo Bills don't have any major holes to fill in free agency, but even the top teams can never get complacent. With a 17-game regular season, depth is more important than ever in the NFL, and offensive line might be the biggest area in need of bodies on any roster.

That's why the Bills' latest free agent signing was better than it might seem.

Greg Mancz isn't exactly a household name, but he's quietly been a solid depth piece since being drafted by the Houston Texans in 2015. Typically listed as a center, Mancz has NFL experience starting at both center and right tackle, and he played all of guard, tackle and center in college.

The Bills were lucky to have all of Daryl Williams, Dion Dawkins and Mitch Morse healthy enough to play over 90% of the team's offensive snaps last year (Josh Allen was the only other player in the offense to do so), but it's great to see that they're not getting complacent. None of their guards played even 55% of the snaps, and you can never have too much depth on the offensive line.

This move isn't exactly going to move their odds to win the Super Bowl (which are already the best in the NFL at +650), but it's one that Bills fans should feel good about.
