The Buffalo Bills are signing defensive tackle Ed Oliver to a four-year, $68 million extension, per Adam Schefter. Oliver will play under the fifth-year option of his rookie contract this season. This deal keeps him in Buffalo under contract through 2027. The most notable part of this deal is that it includes $45 million guaranteed.
Oliver played in 13 games last year, marking the first time he didn’t play every game in a season since entering the NFL in 2019. He finished with 34 total tackles, including 20 solos and 14 assists. Oliver had 2.5 sacks with one forced fumble and three passes deflected. While it isn’t translated to the stat sheet, Oliver helps to shore up the interior of Buffalo’s defensive line. He is expected to be joined on the line next season by DaQuan Jones inside, with Greg Rousseau and Von Miller anchoring the edges.
