Bills expected to sign DT Star Lotulelei

Soon after Sean McDermott shuffled off to Buffalo a year ago, he looked to a few familiar friends for some help.

Star Lotulelei has earned a raise, but the defensive tackle be receiving it from the Buffalo Bills instead of his former team, the Carolina Panthers.

Williams showed no signs of slowing down last season making 16 starts while contributing 41 tackles and finishing second on the team in sacks. "He meant a lot to me this past season in the way of connecting my message to the locker room at different points throughout the year so the leadership part of that was big for us". According to Schefter, Lotulelei's deal will be for five years.

Another former Panther will pack his bags and migrate to western NY as defensive tackle Star Lotulelei is expected to sign a five-year deal with the Bills when the new NFL league year begins Wednesday, ESPN.com reported. The 315-pounder would serve as a reliable anchor, primarily against the run game, over his five-year stay in the middle of what was a consistently stingy defense.
