Buffalo Bills sign pass rusher Kroy Biermann

The Bills aren't finished adding much-needed depth to their banged-up defense.

Buffalo added veteran pass rusher Kroy Biermann to the mix Monday, the team announced. NFL Media's Conor Orr adds it's a one-year deal.

Biermann, 30, spent his first eight seasons in Atlanta, piling up seven sacks over the past two campaigns before the Falcons chose not to re-sign him this offseason. Bills coach Rex Ryan had Biermann in for a visit in March, setting the table for Monday's signing.

In Buffalo, Bierman has a chance to see meaningful snaps right away at outside linebacker, where Manny Lawson, IK Enemkpali and rookie Shaq Lawson have all been lost to injuries.

The Bills waived/injured Enemkpali on Monday to make room for Biermann. The Bills are expected to put Enemkpali on injured reserve if he clears waivers.

No team in the league has been harder hit by bumps, bruises and broken bones than Buffalo, leaving Ryan behind the eight ball long before Week 1. Anything the team gets from Bierman will help.
