2 more new Bills

Marcus Stroud Spencer Johnson

Well the Bills continued their Free Agent addings, by adding 2 guys to the Defensive Line. Probably the most in need position on the team. They added a depth guy in Johnson, and a line stuffer in Stroud.

First on Spencer Johnson

He's a 6-3 286 lb DT going into his 6th year in the league out of Auburn. He's mainly been a depth guy for the two big Williams in Minnesota Kevin and Pat. He seems to have 4 sacks in his career and 62 tackles. He's here not to start but to spell Stroud and McCargo, plus getting time with Kyle Williams. But looks like a good pickup.

The big move, emphasis on big was Marcus Stroud. Acquiring him from Jacksonville for a 3rd and 5th round pick. Hes coming off a bad year of injuries and a "steroid" suspension. Which sounds worse then it was. He is definitely a big man going 6'6 and 310 lbs. So he'll enjoy the food around here. Hes going to turn 30 in may, so hes in the prime of his career, maybe near the downside. But hes under contract for only 3 more years, so if he declines rapidly, it won't be that much of a problem. Has been a 3 year pro bowler and has 22 career sacks and 457 tackles. Could the be the linchpin in a new and improved buffalo defense. Otherwise not much to pay for a quality DT like Stroud. The Bills are going out and signing and trading the right way again.

Its seems like the people at 1 Bills Drive know what they are doing, and I don't expect they are done.
