The Buffalo Bills have already made a big splash this offseason by signing Richie Incognito and trading for LeSean McCoy and Matt Cassel, but the move that always should have been at the top of their list was re-signing unrestricted free agent pass-rusher Jerry Hughes. The Bills reportedly made that move happen Monday morning, according to Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News.

Hughes and the Bills have agreed to terms on a five-year contract, per Carucci, who first reported the news of the signing. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Hughes’ deal is worth at least $45 million, while ESPN’s Josina Anderson has reported that the guaranteed portion of Hughes’ deal is more than $22 million.

While five NFL teams used the franchise tag and one used the transition tag Monday, the Buffalo Bills decided to use neither, meaning that all of their impending free agents—including defensive end Jerry Hughes, safety Da’Norris Searcy and running back C.J.

While all eyes are on the 2015 NFL draft class this week at the NFL Scouting Combine, free agency is just around the corner, as the NFL league year opens up on March 10. As a result, Buffalo Bills free agents were the hot topic of discussion when Bills general manager Doug Whaley spoke with media members in Indianapolis.

I’m not in Indianapolis but as always, significant notes from Whaley’s time with the press spread quickly across the airwaves of Twitter.

Sunday begins the quadrant of the Buffalo Bills’ season in that, if the games were played on paper, we should already know who the winner of each of the final four games will be. The Bills should have one easy win in front of them when they play the Oakland Raiders in Week 15, but the other three games—all against teams who have 9-3 records so far this season—look to be likely losses.

The first of those three games comes against the Denver Broncos, at 4:25 p.m. Sunday at Denver’s Sports Authority Field. If the Bills are going to come up with a victory—one they need to keep themselves in position to make the playoffs—they’re going to have to do so against a team that has won all six of its home games this year.
