Joking Rex Ryan: Bills DE Jerry Hughes is 'ruining practice'
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Rex Ryan has declared that new Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes is wrecking practice. Fortunately for the team, it was a tongue-in-cheek remark.
Ryan made the joke because Hughes, who signed a five-year, $45 million contract extension this offseason, has been so dominant in the current sessions. Ryan estimated that Hughes registered five or six sacks before he had to pull him off the field and allow the offense to get its work in uninterrupted.
"This just in: I am really happy we signed Jerry Hughes back," Ryan told Syracuse.com. "It's rare that you have to pull a guy from practice because he's ruining your practice. I had to pull him (Wednesday)."
Hughes is coming off successive 10-plus sack seasons. Ryan expressed certainty that he will continue to thrive despite a shift in defensive philosophy.
"If he keeps rushing the pass like he did (Wednesday), yeah I'd say so," Ryan said. "You can put him anywhere, too. He plays much bigger than his frame. He's like 255 or something, but he plays much bigger. He can play as an end, play as an outside backer. He's definitely a physical player, he's a great athlete."
Bills re-sign breakout DE Jerry Hughes to five-year deal
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(3/9/15) The Bills announced they've re-signed defensive end Jerry Hughes, who broke out last season with 54 tackles, 13 for loss, 18 quarterback hits, 10.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.
While the Bills did not disclose terms of the deal, the Buffalo News said Hughes, 26, got a five-year deal worth $45 million, including $22 million guaranteed. Hughes was hotly coveted on the open market and his signing is another significant move for a team that's already traded for running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Matt Cassel.

The Bills have an offer on the table worth more than $8.5 million per year, which could be enough to keep him in Buffalo.
Report: Bills expect to keep defensive end Jerry Hughes
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Despite multiple suitors, the Bills are expecting to keep Jerry Hughes, reports Yahoo Sports.
Hughes has been coveted by the Jaguars and Giants, but the Bills are hoping to retain his services. In 2014, Hughes generated 54 tackles and 10 sacks.
Giants interested in Jerry Hughes, focusing on defensive line
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) The Giants have expressed interest in impending free-agent defensive end Jerry Hughes and appear to be very interested in beeing up their pass rush, ESPN.com reports.
The Giants franchised defensive end Jasson Pierre-Paul but appear ready to add more talent to the defensive line once free agency opens Tuesday. The team has also been connected to Pernell McPhee and Brandon Graham, per the report.
The Giants have also expressed interest in safety Devin McCourty but expect him to be tough to sign.
|The Bills paid Jerry Hughes to be one of the top pass rushers in the NFL with a five-year, $45 million extension ($22 million guaranteed), and he should benefit playing in Rex Ryan's defense this year. Hughes is coming off consecutive seasons with double digits in sacks with 20 over that span, and he did well with 53 total tackles in 2014 (36 solo) and three forced fumbles. Hughes rarely sees double teams because of Mario Williams on the other side, and he should be considered a sleeper DL in IDP leagues. Plan on drafting Hughes with a late-round pick.
