Bills | Extension coming for Marcell Dareus

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 11:45:35 -0700

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus is due to receive a contract extension "in the near future," according to general manager Doug Whaley. "He will be priority No. 1 once the dust settles post draft, maybe even before then, just to get the ball rolling," Whaley said. Dareus has a year left on his rookie contract from 2011, and the Bills already picked up his fifth-year option for $8.06 million. Dareus finished 2014 with a career-high 10 sacks and has gone to the Pro Bowl each of the last two years. An extension for Dareus will likely include plenty of guaranteed money.

Bills | Marcell Dareus could thrive

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 08:16:12 -0700

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus looks like a good fit in defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's scheme and could have a big year if his off-field issues can be remedied.

Fantasy Tip: Dareus is an IDP consideration on draft day -- Schwartz knows how to get production out of a defensive line -- but beware potential league discipline for Dareus. Buffalo's D remains on the fringe of being starter-worthy.

Bills | Marcell Dareus entering treatment

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 07:53:13 -0700

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus has agreed to enter an NFL substance abuse program as he works to have felony drug charges dismissed, according to Rod Giddens, Dareus' attorney. Dareus was given permission to enter the program at a hearing in Calhoun County Court in Alabama Monday, July 21. Charges levied on May 5 of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia will be dismissed and perhaps expunged should he complete the required activities. The NFL could still discipline Dareus, however.

Fantasy Tip: The last sentence puts a damper on this news, which could negatively affect the Bills' defensive line, considered its strength on defense. In fantasy, they're a fringe starting DT with even more risk during any potential Dareus absence.
