DE Jarius Wynn reaches agreement on deal with Bills

ADVERTISEMENT

The Bills added some depth at the defensive end position today by agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with free-agent Jarius Wynn.

Wynn, 27, is a five-year NFL veteran who has played 20 to 28 snaps a game throughout his career. He gives the Bills a needed option at end. Jerry Hughes is the Bills' top rush end opposite Mario Williams, but Hughes is most effective when he stays fresh. He played about 52 percent of the snaps last year and had a good year for the Bills.

Wynn played the first five games of last season with San Diego, then played 15 games with Dallas, which was riddled with defensive injuries. Wynn played 24 snaps a game between the two teams. In 2012, Wynn played 20 snaps a game in a seven-game stint with Tennessee. Wynn started his career as a sixth-round pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2009. He saw 28 snaps a game with the Packers in 2011.

    Ok I may not be a math major here, but how did he play the first 5 games of last season with S.D. then another 15 with Dallas? 5 +15 = 20. The season only has 17 weeks, how did he play 20 games?

        "Wynn played the first five games of last season with San Diego, then played 15 games with Dallas, which was riddled with defensive injuries." Doesn't read that way.... Top Notch writing from TBN as always.

      He's a pretty big dude, probably around 6' 4" and 300 lbs. Saw him play at UGA and he's solid, but not spectacular. Provides depth and rotation for the line.
