The NFL's highest-paid center is back in action.
Mitch Morse, who signed a four-year, $44.5 million deal with the Buffalo Bills in free agency, took the field for the first time Tuesday during minicamp. He missed earlier team activity this offseason while recovering from surgery to fix a core muscle injury (also known as a sports hernia).
“It’s all structurally good down there, which I know is kind of crass to say,” Morse joked, referring to his repaired groin muscle. “Now it’s just getting back into the tempo of things, getting the proper footwork down and technique stuff.”
Morse's contract averages $11.125 million per season, which is the most ever for a center. His cap hit for 2019 ranks third at his position, but including his signing bonus, Morse will earn more than $19 million this season – per Spotrac, only 19 players in the entire league will be paid more.
Bills wide receiver Robert Foster suffers foot injury, and other updates: Foster apparently suffered a foot injury last week and the team still doesn't know the severity. That sounds bad, but Foster was seen jogging along the sideline Tuesday while the rest of the team practiced, so maybe the Bills are just being careful with him. Foster is expected to make the team.
