Earlier this week, Bills general manager Brandon Beane said the team was considering adding a defensive tackle.
Now, the team has officially announced the move.
Buffalo has signed veteran Linval Joseph, the team announced Thursday.
According to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, Joseph’s one-year contract is worth up to $3.72 million.
Joseph, 35, started eight games for the Eagles last year after signing with the Eagles in November. He was on the field for 38% of the snaps in the games he played. He totaled 20 tackles, including a half-sack, in the regular season, and one tackle and one fumble recovery in the postseason.
A second-round pick of the Giants in the 2010 draft, Joesph helped New York defeat New England to win Super Bowl XLVI in his second season. Joseph played in 88 games in six years with Minnesota before joining the Chargers for two seasons in 2020.
In a corresponding roster move, the Bills placed cornerback Kyle Elam on injured reserve with an ankle injury. He will likely miss at least the next four games.
