Bills sign former Patriots defensive end/linebacker Michael Buchanan
Michael Buchanan is a 6-foot-6, 255 pound defensive end/linebacker was a seventh round pick (226th overall) of the New England Patriots with two seasons with 18 NFL games under his belt.
During his time in college at Illinois, Buchanan had 14 sacks and 26 tackles. This looks like a move to add depth at linebacker and defensive end. During his junior year, Buchanan was seen as a potential first-round prospect, but he underwhelmed as a senior and fell to the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Buchanan played in only three games during the 2014 season before landing on injured reserve.
