Whether the Bills make a dramatic move up for one of the top players in the draft or not, they already have a good defensive line.

They took a step Friday to keep it together.

According to Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports, the Bills have picked up the fifth-year option on defensive tackle Marcell Dareus.

The decision was a no-brainer, really, giving them another year of security, and time to work on a long-term deal to keep the group intact.

Dareus and Kyle Williams have become a top inside tandem, and with Mario Williams on one side, they’re the bedrock of one of the league’s best defensive lines in the game.
