This past season, the Buffalo Bills ended the league's longest active playoff drought by reaching the postseason for the first time since 1999.
Lotulelei's value isn't seen entirely in stats, considering he's tallied between 22 and 26 tackles in each of the last four years.
The signing will help the Bills along the defensive front which suffered greatly after they traded Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars last season. Lotulelei will immediately fill that void for Buffalo. Williams is unsigned and has also contemplated the possibility of retiring.
Star Lotulelei has found himself a new home on the free agent market, and the Buffalo Bills have won the chance to sign him despite several other interested parties, per reports. Bills General Manager Brandon Beane was in the Carolina front office when Lotulelei was drafted in the first round in 2013.
Lotulelei has recorded 141 tackles and 11.5 sacks in his career.
Former general manager Dave Gettleman, who was sacked in July, picked defensive tackle Vernon Butler in the first round of the 2016 draft, knowing it would be tough to give big contracts to both Short and Lotulelei.
Lotulelei has been a reliable anchor along the trenches for the Panthers, starting all 16 games the last two seasons.
