May 21 (UPI) -- The Buffalo Bills have agreed to a $23 million contract extension with defensive end Jerry Hughes.
Hughes, 30, posted 37 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, three forced fumbles and a pass defensed in 16 starts last season for Buffalo. The 6-foot-2, 254-pound pass-rusher ranked as the No. 7 edge rusher in the league in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
Hughes entered the league as the No. 31 overall pick by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2010 NFL Draft. Hughes played three seasons for the Colts before being traded to the Bills in 2013 in exchange for linebacker Kelvin Sheppard.
The TCU product had back-to-back seasons with 10 sacks for the bills in 2013 and 2014.
