The Buffalo Bills valued Ryan Groy enough to make him a contract offer as a restricted free agent.
The question now is whether another team will place an even higher value on him – enough to potentially steal him away. According to a report Friday from ESPN's Adam Caplan, "at least four teams" have expressed interest in Groy.
#Bills RFA G Ryan Groy has drawn interest from at least 4 teams, sources said. A few of them said they think he could come in and start.

Groy received the lowest restricted free agent tender from the Bills, which would pay him $1.797 million on a one-year contract. Another team can offer Groy a contract, which the Bills would have the right to match. Because he was undrafted, the Bills wouldn't be entitled to any compensation if they elected not to do so.
Groy, 26, started seven games at center in 2016 in place of the injured Eric Wood. He figures to be Buffalo's top reserve interior offensive lineman behind Wood and guards Richie Incognito and John Miller – if the Bills are able to retain him.
