Buffalo Bills, Star Lotulelei agree to 5-year deal

13 March 2018

Just as valuable as Williams was on the field, it was his leadership in the locker room that helped first-time head coach Sean McDermott reinforce the culture change that had to take place for the Bills to grow into a successful franchise again. Williams slots in as one of the starting defensive tackles in the season, and he'll be lining up next to the player that the Bills reportedly agreed to terms with earlier on Tuesday, defensive tackle Star Lotulelei. "At 6'2" and 315 pounds, however, the Utah product is a prototypical run-stuffer and space-eater in the middle of the line. The team traded veteran Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, and impending free agent Kyle Williams' future with the team was up in the air-although now it seems as though his fate in Buffalo is set. Beane came to Buffalo from Carolina's front office.

The Buffalo Bills have made another splash in the 2018 offseason.

The Bills had created more than $15 million in salary-cap space in trading away QB Tyrod Taylor and left tackle Cordy Glenn in recent days.

Lotulelei, 28, has started 75 of 76 games in his career, with 141 tackles (83 solo), 11.5 sacks, five passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He has been a starter for all 12 of his previous seasons.
