Buffalo Bills’ General Manager, Brandon Beane, announced yesterday that the team has signed outside linebacker, Leonard Floyd, to a one-year deal worth $10 million. The signing comes as the team looks to fill the defensive void left by the departure of linebacker, Matt Milano, who recently signed with the Miami Dolphins.
Floyd, who was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 2016, spent the last two seasons with the Los Angeles Rams. He recorded 10.5 sacks and 55 tackles during his time with the Rams, proving to be a valuable asset to their defense.
Beane praised Floyd’s versatility and ability to rush the passer, saying, “He’s a guy that can come off the edge, get after the quarterback, but also play defense against tight ends, running backs, and in some cases, wide receivers.”
Fans of the Bills are excited to see Floyd in action, and believe that his addition to the team will only strengthen their already impressive defense. “This is a great signing for the Bills. Floyd is a proven player in this league and I have no doubt that he will thrive in our system,” said one fan.
As for Floyd, he expressed his excitement to join the Bills and help the team achieve their goals. “I’m thrilled to be a part of this organization and I can’t wait to get to work with my new teammates. I’m ready to do whatever it takes to help us win,” said Floyd.
The Bills finished last season with a 13-3 record and made it to the AFC Championship game, ultimately losing to the Kansas City Chiefs. With the addition of Floyd, the team hopes to take their game to the next level and compete for a Super Bowl title.
