Bills Ex Tim Settle Signs With Texans In Free Agency

Another Buffalo Bills defender is on the move in free agency.

With losses left and right, the Buffalo Bills' defense will look drastically different next season.

The Bills suffered another loss on that side of the ball on Thursday, as defensive tackle Tim Settle signed a two-year deal worth up to $7 million with the Houston Texans, per Dianna Russini of The Athletic.

Settle, 26, was a situational player on the Bills' defense during his two years in Buffalo, but an important part of the unit nonetheless. He appeared in 32 games over the past two seasons, starting four of them and recording 33 total tackles, five tackles for loss and two sacks.

Before coming to Buffalo, Settle spent the first four years of his career with the Washington Commanders. The 2018 third-round pick out of Virginia Tech appeared in 63 games with two starts during his time in the nation's capital.

Settle should have a noticeable role in Houston as the Texans just traded away Maliek Collins and lost Sheldon Rankins in free agency, leaving a noticeable hole at defensive tackle.

For the Bills, though, it's another loss in an offseason that has been full of them.
