The Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with free agent linebacker Trent Murphy. He previously played for the Washington Redskins.
Murphy, a defensive end and outside linebacker, has received a three-year deal from the Bills. He’ll be paid $21 million.
The Bills are definitely taking a gamble with this move, as they are giving him a huge amount of money. He missed four-games due to a PED suspension and also tore his ACL/MCL.
The 27-year-old, who has only played three seasons in the league, had 9.0 sacks in 2016. He also had 27 tackles, one pass deflections, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
In 47 career games, including 23 starts, he’s had 61 tackles, 15.0 sacks, two pass deflections, six forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.
The Bills presently have Shaq Lawson and Jerry Hughes, as defensive end rushers, who are expected to start. They also are slated to start Matt Milano, Preston Brown — if they could re-sign him — and Lorenzo Alexander.
It may be tough for Buffalo to re-sign Brown with the salary gamble they took on Murphy.
The Bills, who finished 9-7 and made the playoffs for the first-time since 1999, had Hughes lead the team with 4.0 sacks last season. They also had three players, who registered 3.0 sacks on the season in Ryan Davis, Kyle Williams, and Alexander.
