Doug Whaley and the Buffalo Bills have agreed to a contract extension. Kim Pegula, co-owner of the Bills, announced the news on Twitter.
It was believed that Whaley's previous deal would end in 2016. Terms of the extension were not disclosed.
Whaley has been with the Bills since joining the team in 2010 as the Assistant General Manager/Director of Pro Personnel. He became Buffalo's GM on May 16, 2013. During his time with the Bills, Whaley has done a terrific job of adding depth and talent to Buffalo's roster.
Last offseason, he re-signed Jerry Hughes and extended the contracts of Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams. Whaley also traded for LeSean McCoy and signed players such as Tyrod Taylor, Charles Clay and Richie Incognito. In the 2015 draft, Whaley added instant contributors with Buffalo's first three picks: Ronald Darby, John Miller and Karlos Williams. He's also found quality players in-season on the waiver wire. In the last two seasons, players such as Bacarri Rambo, Mike Gillislee and Greg Salas have all come up big for the Bills at times.
UPDATE: Ty Dunne of the Buffalo News believes that Whaley's deal adds four years to Whaley's contract.
