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.
