Contract talks stall between Bills & Dareus

The Buffalo Bills want to lock up Marcell Dareus long term, but contract talks have stalled according to John Wawrow of the AP.

Contract talks between the Buffalo Bills and Marcell Dareus are at a standstill according to John Wawrow of the Associated Press.

According to Wawrow’s sources, offers have not been exchanged in a few weeks. Buffalo has mentioned that they’d like to get a deal done before the start of the 2015 season.

General manager Doug Whaley has said that signing Dareus to an extension is the team’s number one priority.

"He will be priority No. 1 once the dust settles post-draft."

Wawrow noted that Whaley recently said that contracts like Dareus’ take time, and the GM is correct. The defensive tackle is in line for a big pay day and the Bills may have to get creative with their salary cap in the next few seasons to not only resign Dareus, but also resign other key contributors. Dareus is one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL and could be looking for a contract similar to Ndamukong Suh’s six year, $114 million deal.
