The Buffalo Bills continue in their drive to build a playoff team.  And one of the best ways to do it is to hold on to the players already on the team that can help them get there.  The Bills made it official on Monday that they’ve resigned defensive end/linebacker Jerry Hughes to a 5-year contract.

Hughes told the media that staying with the Bills was a priority for him and he instructed his agent to make it happen even if it meant making less money with the Bills.

General manager Doug Whaley admitted keeping Hughes with the Bills was a priority.

With the start of the new NFL year at 4:00 on Tuesday the Bills are expected to make the acquisition of RB DeSean McCoy from Philadelphia official.
