Two people with direct knowledge the decision confirm to The Associated Press the Buffalo Bills have agreed to sign free agent defensive end Trent Murphy to a three-year contract.
The people spoke on the condition of anonymity on Wednesday because the deal was reached before the NFL's business year opened later in the day.
NFL first reported the agreement.
Murphy spent the past four seasons in Washington after being selected in the second round of the 2014 draft. Listed at 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds [url=http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/cordrea-tankersley-jersey-cheap]Cordrea Tankersley Jersey[/url] , he is best known for his pass-rushing ability. He had 15 sacks in 47 games, including nine in 2016.
Murphy missed all of last season after tearing two ligaments in his left knee in a preseason game against Baltimore. Had he not been injured, Murphy would have missed the first four games of the season serving an NFL suspension for violating the NFL's performance enhancers policy.
The Bills finished tied for 30th in the NFL with just 27 sacks last season.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari was taken off the field on a cart Saturday, dampening the spirits at Family Night at Lambeau Field.
Bakhtiari walked to the cart with his left shoe removed.
“I don’t have enough information to answer that [url=http://www.billscheapstore.com/jordan-poyer-jersey-cheap]Jordan Poyer Jersey[/url] ,” coach Mike McCarthy said about the severity of the injury. “I know it’s his ankle but that’s all I know.”
Bakhtiari was named a second-team All-Pro each of the last two seasons, the first Packers offensive tackle to earn back-to-back All-Pro accolades since Hall of Famer Forrest Gregg.
“I think he said he got his foot caught underneath him,” left guard Lane Taylor said. “Not 100 percent sure, but I’m sure he’ll be fine.”
The Packers have been getting through training camp without one of their starting offensive tackles. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga practiced on Friday for the first time since suffering a torn right ACL against Detroit on Nov. 6 but did not practice on Saturday as the team brings him along slowly.
Without Bakhtiari and Bulaga, Kyle Murphy played left tackle and Jason Spriggs played right tackle for the two-minute drill that ended the night.
“Just got to be ready to take reps whenever [url=http://www.giantscheapstore.com/kyle-lauletta-jersey-cheap]Kyle Lauletta Jersey[/url] ,” Murphy said. “Yeah, Dave got nicked up a little bit but probably not too bad, tough guy. It’s always next man up.”
Depending on the severity of Bakhtiari’s injury, it could further delay the creation of continuity up front. Last season, the Packers churned through 11 different starting offensive line combinations.
“The sooner we can get the five we think are going to be the first five kind of starting to get a chance to jell together [url=http://www.chargerscheapstore.com/tyrell-williams-jersey-cheap]Tyrell Williams Jersey[/url] , the better,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on Friday.
With 64,702 in attendance, 10 players did not practice for the Packers, including receiver Randall Cobb (ankle) and defensive tackle Mike Daniels (quad).
