The Bills have shored up the middle of their defensive line, now they’re adding some pass rush.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Washington outside linebacker Trent Murphy is heading to the Bills. Adam Schefter of ESPN adds that it’s a three-year, $21 million deal.

Murphy missed last season with a torn ACL (and also served a four-game suspension for a PED violation), but he’s been productive when well.

He had 8.0 sacks the last time he was on the field in 2016, so the Bills are taking a chance on him making a quick impact. Murphy had gotten interest from the Patriots and Buccaneers, but decided to head north to join Star Lotulelei and Kyle Williams.

  1. He chose the Bills because he knows they are on the way up. Even though the Patriots were in the running as well, clearly they have lost some of their shine. The end of an era is approaching in the AFC East.

    I don’t get the “patriots have lost some of there shine”
    They NEVER come out on the first day of free agency and over spend like all these teams are doing aside from Amendola it’s no surprise they didn’t sign Nutker or Lewis and they would never pay a 33 years old LT the money the Giants just paid

    I guarantee the AFC still goes through NE, not the AFC East the conference

  3. Redskins lost Breeland…a 3rd, K. Fuller, Paul, Cousins, Long, Murphy….*insert “this is fine” meme here*

  4. as a giants fan in western ny the bills seem to have a plan they’re willingly to go all in for. spend cap money towards a decent defense and package draft picks to roll the dice for a top 5 QB. the gmen don’t realize they should be trying similar gambits. pride cometh before a fall.
