Buffalo Bills Sign Former Super Bowl Champ Edge Rusher

The Buffalo Bills have bolstered their roster by signing edge rusher Leonard Floyd to a one-year contract.

Formerly with the Los Angeles Rams, Floyd brings his impressive track record and pass-rushing skills to Buffalo.

The Rams released him as a cap casualty last March, but his consistent performance and ability to record nine or more sacks in each of his last three seasons make him a valuable asset.

Floyd's addition aims to strengthen the Bills' pass rush, which ranked 14th in sacks last season. With 54 quarterback pressures last year, the second-highest total of his career, Floyd has showcased his abilities and proven himself as a formidable force.

The Bills hope that his signing, along with his reunion with former Rams teammate Von Miller, will create a potent and familiar combination on the field.

Despite the Bills' mixed performance in their pass rush last season, making it to the divisional round of the playoffs, they struggled to make a significant impact. Under former defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, they relied on blitzing on a relatively low percentage of plays.

The team made strategic moves in the offseason, signing Von Miller with high expectations, but his season was plagued by injuries, limiting his playing time and overall impact.

With Floyd's arrival, the Bills aim to address their pass-rushing issues and generate explosive plays off the edge. The team has also made other additions along the defensive line, but the primary focus remains on Floyd and his potential partnership with a healthy Miller.
