Bills close to deal to retain pass-rusher Jerry Hughes

One of the biggest names on the free agent pass-rusher market may never get there.

According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, the Bills are close to finalizing a deal for defensive end Jerry Hughes.

That will be a huge deal for the Bills, who made an equivalent splash on the other side of the ball of running back LeSean McCoy.

Hughes looked like a bust in Indianapolis, but has posted back-to-back 10.0 sack seasons with the Bills. He’s still just 26, so the Bills clearly saw enough in him to warrant what will certainly be a huge investment.
