Bills sign DT Vernon Butler. 2 years up to 18M total and 9.3M GTD

Recommended Posts

Top 100 free agents:  Number 29

29. EDGE DANTE FOWLER JR.

Fowler had the best season of his four-year career in 2019, producing a 73.4 pass-rush grade that ranks 31st among qualifying edge defenders. Fowler has gathered the sixth-most sacks (15) while ranking 38th in win rate and 20th in pressure rate. Not to mention, he had the second-most pressures that were cleanups or pursuits. His pressure rate this year was over three percentage points higher than we have seen from him in a single season. Fowler is likely going to get overpaid based on the 2019 sack numbers, but that’s not to say he isn’t a good player — he’ll be a good addition to a pass-rush unit if a team can get him for the right price.

2 missed tackles in 440 snaps for Carolina in 2019...I’m picking up on a theme here

Interesting. Missed tackles was probably my biggest beef with the D last year. All three units. All three new DL seem to be good tacklers. Klein decent, too.

Was this guy their Plan B after Reader signed with the Bengals?  Seemed to happen pretty close to each other.

Great signing! Nice to see them go off the Carolina Panthers connection for good players too!

I'm thinking he's Star lite.  Same kinda guy with same limitations.  Maybe a little better penetration, but it will be nice having them both playing alongside Ed.  They're built for that.

That's a bad signing. He was abysmal for 3 years then got 5 sacks in his contract year. Former first round pick. Maybe McD can get more effort from him.

I think that is why his contract is structured with only 9 mil guaranteed. He wants to get payed. Give him something to work for...

I hate players that wear #99, not sure why

Wow. Young and versatile. Had two sacks in the playoff game vs. Iggles. 3-tech or 5-tech.

Another great signing,  adds depth and gives Beane the option to let Murphy go.  Things are looking good

Before 2019 you could have got this guy for a late round pick. He couldn't break the rotation. 

  Panthers fans would have died laughing if you told them he would get close to 9 mill total contract never mind guarantees only.

Up the middle was an issue.  Depth at Dt has greatly improved.

Beane is nocturnal 

 

A far cry from a certain GM 10 years ago who would have been in bed by 8pm. :lol:

He's only 25, looks like the light came on for him last season, I'm sure new DL coach, Washington, had a lot to say about Butler

That’s a very good signing he can line up anywhere on D Line
