Good but not explosive player.  Dareus is explosive (when he shows up).  Kwann Short is explosive.  Star is solid.  I was hoping they'd try to pry Wolfe out of Denver (he's Kyle 2.0) but this does fill a need.

Necessary position to address, but uninspired choice to address it with. Can't be surprised, but his play last season didn't indicate a guy worth signing for 5 years, more like 2 with a team option for a third.

Congrats to all of us who had Star in our free agent preview threads we wrote. Can mark that free space off the bingo board lol

I was worried that we wouldn’t have enough Carolina guys this year with Tolbert likely leaving.

Gotta say that the present Bills management is impressing the shite out of me. Can you guys remember a more exciting off-season?

Kyle's the rare player who won't chase a paycheck.    He'll retire if he cant be a Bill, IMO....

Just because it's a 5 year deal doesn't mean the deal won't essentially be structured as you describe. Lets wait for the details. Star alone will not make the D great but he is a piece of the puzzle that will help.

I always cringe when big money is given to the interior defensive line

I have mixed feelings of this pick.

 

On one hand he fills a big need and probably will be a good run plugger.

 

On the other hand he doesn't get many tackles or sacks and he hasn't graded out well with PFF.   Not to say that they are the be all and end all but it is a data point.

 

I have heard arguments that he has played well despite his lack of stats but I can't lie, I'm a little concerned.   

 

But I do trust the process.  I do trust their familiarity with him and if they are good with him than so will I.

 

Here's to hoping that he ends up being a good run stuffer for us.   Hopefully he doesn't break the bank either.

 

He fills a need for sure.  I find it interesting how many coaches/GM's go after players from their former teams.  On one hand you can say well they know them better than other players which is true but in a perfect world you would select the best players from the 31 other teams not favor players from a particular team because you know them.

Makes complete sense.  Biggest need.  One of the best players available.  Had the best years of his career while playing under Mcdermott.
