Bills sign pass rusher Leonard Floyd to one-year contract

Floyd recorded nine sacks with the Rams in 2022

Orchard Park, N.Y. (WGR 550) - The Buffalo Bills have bolstered their defensive line, adding veteran pass rusher Leonard Floyd on a one-year contact, the team announced Tuesday. The signing was first reported by NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport and later confirmed by WGR Bills beat reporter Sal Capaccio on Monday.

To make room for Floyd on the 90-man roster, the Bills have released undrafted free agent running back Isaiah Bowser.

The seven-year pro spent his last three seasons with the Los Angeles Rams, recording, at least, nine sacks in all three years.

Floyd has totaled 47.5 sacks in his seven years in the NFL.


Floyd was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the first round (9th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. During his four years in Chicago, Floyd only recorded 18.5 sacks before singing with the Rams in 2020 as a free agent.

Floyd will now reunite with Von Miller, Taylor Rapp, and David Edwards, who all played together on the Rams team that won Super Bowl LVI in 2021.

Tuesday's signing comes after the Bills re-signed defensive tackle Ed Oliver to a four-year contract extension on Monday.
