Former Bills Veteran’s Wife Sends Message After Sudden Release

Bills Veteran’s, One of the most difficult farewells for the Buffalo Bills was to have to say goodbye to their guard Ike Boettger.

Boettger, who has played with the Bills since 2018, did not make the cut for the active roster this season. However, it was widely anticipated that he would be re-signed to the practice squad. Zach Vaughn, editor-in-chief of Buffalo Fanatics, commented on the website that “Boettger is gonna be on the PS or I’ll be an animal’s Uncle,” while Joe Buscaglia, writing for The Athletic, stated that “it would not be a surprise” to see the veteran back on the practice squad, particularly considering that he is not susceptible to waivers. Boettger is not subject to waivers.

Boettger was not one of the 16 players that the Bills signed to their practice squad, despite the fact that the Bills did sign 16 players. According to a post made on Instagram by the guard’s wife, Katie Boettger, it seems that the guard’s time spent in Orchard Park has come to an end. This comes despite the fact that Buffalo will continue to make changes to their roster during the course of the season.

On September 4, Katie posted a series of images on her Instagram account with her husband and their two daughters dressed in Buffalo Bills clothing. She captioned the photos with the following: “We closed this chapter the last week, and as I sit here and reflect on our time there, all I truly think about is how lucky we’ve been! For us, Buffalo has become a home away from home, and the residents of the city are genuinely remarkable people. Friendships, the community, the team, the women’s organization, and so on are all absolutely exceptional aspects of this group.

“Our first home together as a married couple, first OB/appointments, a pandemic, injuries, recoveries, healing, witnessing incredible miracles, growing our faith, strengthening our marriage, concerts, holiday parties, GNOs, Bible studies, crazy snow storms, and more crazy snowstorms are just some of the things that we got to experience during our time in Buffalo!” We would want to extend our gratitude to the coaches, the other spouses, and the community for making this a memorable part of our life.

The comments section was full with people wishing one other well. Amanda Hyde, who is married to Micah Hyde, sent a message that said, “we love you guys so much,” and Alex Seefeldt, who is dating Dawson Knox, added, “love y’all.” The reply made by Brandon Beane’s wife, Hayley, who is the general manager of the Bills, was “Love you so very much. To having you in our lives was beyond a blessing! You and Ike are the very finest in the world.”

Despite the fact that re-signing Boettger was one of Buffalo’s initial offseason moves, it seemed as if the 6-foot-6 Iowa graduate would be on the outside looking in as the Bills moved on to sign former Dallas Cowboys guard Connor McGovern to a three-year contract for $23 million and former Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl champion David Edwards.

The Bills also selected the Florida guard O’Cyrus Torrence in the second round of the draft. In the end, Torrence beat off the veteran Ryan Bates to win the starting right guard position for the Bills.

In light of such acquisitions, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News anticipated that it would be “one of the toughest cuts” for the Bills to make regarding Boettger. After sustaining a ruptured Achilles tendon in December 2021 – an injury that essentially kept him out of action for the whole of the previous season – he is a fan favorite in the changing room and should be back to 100 percent soon.
