Kyle Williams sticking with the Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills have brought in another former Panther when they agreed to sign defensive tackle Star Lotulelei to a 5-year deal once free agency opens, according to ESPN.

Lotulelei, the 14th overall selection in the 2013 draft, spent most of the past five seasons being overshadowed by Panthers teammate Kawann Short, who made the Pro Bowl in 2015. 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.

They now had only three players (Adolphus Washington, Marquavius Lewis and Rickey Hatley) under contract before Kyle Williams agreed to re-sign on a one-year deal to play another season at age 34. Of those yards, 1,105 were inside the tackles, and opponents' 4.8 yards per rush inside the tackles was tied for worst in the NFL.

Lotulelei will now provide an anchor for the next few years for a defense being remade in general manager Brandon Beane's image.

The Bills' depth at defensive tackle, among other positions, appeared to be severly lacking. He amassed 11.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and 82 tackles in five seasons in Carolina as a run-stuffing, blocker-occupying stalwart on the defensive line.

Lotulelei has been a reliable anchor along the trenches for the Panthers, starting all 16 games the last two seasons.
