The Bills have made an addition to their defensive line after doing some overseas scouting.

Agent Jerrold Colton announced that his client Jake Metz has signed with Buffalo.

Metz spent a brief spell with the Eagles last summer, but has been playing arena football since going undrafted out of Shippensburg in 2014.┬áMetz likely caught the Eagles’ eye while playing for the Philadelphia Soul in the Arena Football League and helping them to a title last year while also being selected to the All-Arena first-team.

Metz then moved on to play for the Qingdao Clipper of the China Arena Football League. They lost to Beijing by one point in the China Bowl last November, robbing Metz of the chance to become a champion in two different countries.

    Apparently he can play on the D-line, linebacker, and even fullback. Interesting signing. Good luck, Jake Metz.

    And this is why this franchise remains muddled in the bottom of the AFC East cellar.

    Any team in the Arena League has to be better than the Billdo’s.

    I think with this transaction the Bills are now ahead of the Jets who signed a cornerback from the Edmonton Eskimos . The Folks in Foxboro better start doing something or they could be in trouble .
