Buffalo Bills, DT Star Lotulelei agree to five-year deal

Buffalo Bills, DT Star Lotulelei agree to five-year deal Report: Buffalo Bills, Star Lotulelei agree to 5-year deal

Joining Williams in the defensive front's rotation will be former Carolina Panther DT Star Lotulelei, who according to ESPN, will sign with the Bills when the free agency period officially begins.

After playing in his first playoff game last season, veteran Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams will return for another season.

Lotulelei was drafted by the Panthers in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft when both Bills coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane were employed by the Panthers.

Lotulelei's value isn't seen entirely in stats, considering he's tallied between 22 and 26 tackles in each of the last four years.

The Patriots now have offensive tackles Marcus Cannon , Cole Croston , Andrew Jelks and Antonio Garcia under contract for 2018. Bradham was then part of a defensive unit that helped lead Philadelphia to its first ever Super Bowl title this past year.

Lotulelei, in addition to helping propel the Panthers to Super Bowl 50 in 2016, finishes his stint in Carolina with 141 combined tackles, 11.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

It turns out, that somewhere else is Buffalo, where Lotulelei will play for his old defensive coordinator and anchor a defensive line that was in desperate need of talent. "I think the fit is important and the fit is there, obviously".

"You know how I feel about Kyle and what he's meant to our community in Buffalo over the years and what he's meant to our football team", said McDermott.
