The Bills added another defensive lineman.
The Buffalo Bills have signed defensive tackle Treyvon Hester to a one-year deal, the team announced on Thursday. Hester is entering his fifth year in the NFL, after joining the league as a seventh-round pick in 2017.
Listed at 6’2” and 304 lbs, Hester played for three different teams in his first three years as a pro. He appeared in 41 games, starting two of them, and playing a handful of snaps per game on defense and special teams. For his career, he recorded 40 tackles and two sacks, with a forced fumble and four tackles for loss.
Hester landed on the COVID-19 reserve list in the summer of 2020, and ultimately didn’t make any game appearances that year. He spent the later part of the year on the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice squad.
The Buffalo Bills continued adding to their defensive line in the 2021 NFL Draft, but defensive tackle depth remains an open competition on this roster. Ed Oliver and Star Lotulelei are locks, and Vernon Butler is likely to stay after taking a pay cut, but Harrison Phillips, Justin Zimmer, Brandon Bryant, and Hester will be battling for a spot against the numerous defensive ends in the room.
