Buffalo Bills: Adding another piece to the D


After the Buffalo Bills, which you can follow on FanSided’s Buffalo Low Down, brought in Mario Williams the franchise had said that they were not going to stop there. Well, from an article on ESPN the Bills are proving they were not kidding, as they have now signed Mark Anderson, a defensive end that had ten sacks with divisional foe New England Patriots, which you can follow by reading FanSided’s Musket Fire.

Anderson’s agent told ESPNBoston.com’s Mike Reiss the deal is for four years and a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press it is potentially worth $27 million and includes $8 million guaranteed.

Along with the two new acquisitions the Bills have re signed Derek Hagan, fifth year wide out, and safety Bryan Scott, a nine year veteran. Hagan, drafted in the third round by the Miami Dolphins in 2006 from Arizona State, is a good solid route runner with above average hands. While Scott, a second round pick by the Atlanta Falcons from Penn State, is better as a run stopper with just below average quickness.

There is no doubt that the Bills are looking to upgrade their defense this season. Will it be enough to close the gap between them and the rest of the teams in the AFC East? I am not sure, but if what is shown on paper then comes on to the field Buffalo might be giving their fans something they have not done in the new millenium, a playoff team. And if all can click this franchise could even win a game in the post season, something that has not happened since 1995.
