Quinton Spain sends cryptic tweet after Bills suspiciously cut $15 million lineman

It sounds like there’s a lot more to the Bills-Quinton Spain story.

The former Buffalo starting left guard — who was benched after Week 2 — took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that he would be moving on from Buffalo and suggested there was underlying drama between him and the organization.

“I want to say thank you to the Bills and #BillsMafia Just time for a change, but I appreciate y’all,” Spain tweeted with a photo of a diamond-studded rose gold Audemars Piguet watch.

Ten minutes later, the Bills’ official twitter account tweeted, “We’ve released OL Quinton Spain. #BillsMafia.”

The shocking about-face comes just seven months after the Bills extended the sixth-year lineman for a three-year, $15 million deal in March.

“Only if they knew the real reason but i’m going to leave it at that,” Spain fired back 20 minutes after the Bills’ announcement on Twitter in a cryptic, since-deleted tweet.

The 29-year-old former undrafted free agent signed with the Bills in 2019 after spending four seasons with the Titans. He played every offensive snap last season and did not allow a single sack to quarterback Josh Allen, according to CBS.

The Bills’ offensive line has struggled this season and Spain was benched early in favor of second-year reserve Cody Ford. He sat out Week 5 with a foot injury which — in light of Wednesday’s news — may have been a smokescreen for ballooning tensions between him and the coaching staff.

Spain would be a solid addition to any number of teams in need of offensive line help and should attract multiple suitors.
