Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley wants to keep the offensive line together

Doug Whaley said keeping the OL together is "imperative"

Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley appeared on The John Murphy Show and discussed a variety of topics on Wednesday night. Perhaps the most talked about topic was Buffalo's offensive line. 

During the interview, Whaley stated that re-signing the likes of Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito is "imperative" this offseason. He elaborated on this during the interview.

“The longer they’re together the better they’re going to be and for us to have them in year one, have us leading the league in rushing, that’s a pretty high mark and a good standard and we want to keep that," said Whaley.  "And those two guys, I think, is a key to us taking the next step forward for next year.”

Glenn is coming off of the best season of his career at left tackle. He was solid in run blocking but really stood out as a pass blocker this season. He'll be the team's No. 1 priority this offseason based upon something else Whaley said during his interview.

As for Incognito, few guards were better in the NFL this season. He was the best run blocking linemen on the Bills in 2015 and the team wouldn't have had the same success without him. Although Incognito will turn 33 in July, Buffalo would be foolish to let him leave in free agency. Both parties need to come together on a reasonable extension for the veteran so he can finish his career with the Bills.

Whaley stated at the end of the season press conference that Buffalo's top priority in free agency would be re-signing their own players. There's no doubt which two Bills free agents are Whaley's top priorities.
