Buffalo Bills, Star Lotulelei agree to 5-year deal

Carolina Panthers Star Lotulelei takes the field during defensive introductions before an NFL football game against the Atlanta Falcons in Charlotte N.C. Saturday Dec. 24 2016. The Falcons won 33-16

ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news that Lotulelei is headed to the AFC East squad on a five-year deal, rejoining former defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.

The Bills' depth at defensive tackle, among other positions, appeared to be severly lacking.

Williams, 34, will enter his 13th season in Buffalo after being selected in the fifth round of the 2006 draft.

Kyle Williams is expected to move on and the Bills traded Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2017.


The longest-tenured player on Buffalo's roster will continue to hold that title for one more season.

This past season, the Buffalo Bills ended the league's longest active playoff drought by reaching the postseason for the first time since 1999. Bills general manager Brandon Beane is also familiar with Lotulelei and played a role in drafting him after previously serving as the Panthers assistant GM.

Just call them the Carolina Panthers North. In his career, he has started 75 of 76 games, with 88 tackles, 11.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

A first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Lotulelei has been with the Carolina Panthers for the first five years of his career. Lotulelei is considered a good run stopper but has been overshadowed by Kawann Short in terms of playmaking ability.
