The Bills remain in the mix for free agent defensive end J.J. Watt, but according to reports the former Houston Texan is not going to come cheap.
Thursday a report surfaced that Watt has an offer on the table from a team believed to be worth between $15 million and $16 million.
John Clayton of ESPN in Seattle reports that the Bills, along with the Green Bay Packers, and Tennessee Titans are the three teams that have given the most attention to Watt and they are the frontrunners for his services.
The Bills and Watt have shown mutual interest and Buffalo would be an ideal fit for the three-time Defensive Player of the Year.
Buffalo plays four down linemen, which plays toward Watt’s strengths on the defensive line. Buffalo is another team that reached its conference championship game last season, tying a franchise record with 13 regular-season victories.
The Bills finished with just 38 sacks last season, tied for 15th in the NFL, so adding Watt would be a major boost to the pass rush.
To say adding Watt to the mix of the Bills defense would be an understatement, as he right away could not only add to the pass rush, but also give a lift to the Bills locker room in terms of leadership.
