The Buffalo Bills are in desperate need of a right tackle and now the Bills have an option available to them.

According to the New Orleans Times Picayune, via Pro Football Talk, the New Orleans Saints have released right tackle Jonathan Stinchcomb. Stinchcomb has started every game for the Saints at right tackle for the last five years.

If the Bills were smart they would claim Stinchcomb off waivers as he is slated to make a $2.25 million base salary this year. That is half of what they offered Atlanta Falcons tackle Tyson Clabo, and Stinchcomb is only two years older.

With the regular season yet to commence the Bills still are third in line in waiver claims.

In the end, their decision on Stinchcomb will be a telling sign if the Bills front office already threw the towel in or not.
