National Football League free agency: Star Lotulelei will sign with Buffalo Bills

National Football League free agency: Star Lotulelei will sign with Buffalo Bills

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Buffalo Bills and the interior defensive line beast have agreed to a five-year deal that will be signed once free agency opens up on Wednesday.

Soon after the Bills traded Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, the run defense suffered.

A former first-round pick, Lotulelei has been a starter right at the start of his career through his fifth-year in Carolina.

Lotulelei was drafted 14th overall in 2013 by the Panthers and has ties to Bills coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane from Carolina.




Lotulelei's addition is the latest bold move made by Beane in reshaping Buffalo's roster since being hired in May to replace Doug Whaley.

In this case, Lotulelei played in McDermott's system for five seasons in Carolina and the learning curve should be non-existent.

Former general manager Dave Gettleman, who was sacked in July, picked defensive tackle Vernon Butler in the first round of the 2016 draft, knowing it would be tough to give big contracts to both Short and Lotulelei.

O'Leary caught a career-high 22 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns last season in 15 games, including five starts. Yarbrough appeared in all 16 games, making six starts and recording 34 tackles and one sack. And that's very good news for a Buffalo Bills' defensive unit that could use all the help it can get in that regard.
