The Bills continue to make their splash near the beginning of free agency. Not only did they solidify their linebacker core with A.J. Klein and trade for wide receiver Stefon Diggs, the team has also reached a deal with defensive end Mario Addison. The news first broke from Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.

Since 2013, Addison has been a member of the Carolina Panthers and has been productive over his career. Going back to 2016, Addison has recorded atleast nine sacks or more the last four seasons. Coming off the edge, the Bills were looking to fulfill their edge rushing problem from last season.
With Shaq Lawson departing to Miami, the Bills went out and signed a familiar name that Sean McDermott knows very well. Addison is 32 years old but has not shown any sign of slowing down. With him getting a three-year deal, the Bills believe he still has a high motor to bring to the team.
The Bills are now in the free agency mix as well as on the trade board heading into the new league season. They now have signed two players who have played under McDermott and traded for a big playmaker for the development of their young quarterback. Keep it going, Beane.
