Bills sign free agent DE Owa Odighizuwa

Posted Mar 8, 2018

Buffalo signed their third free agent of the offseason in DE Owa Odighizuwa Thursday.

Buffalo made their third free agent signing in two weeks, inking DE Owa Odighizuwa on Thursday.

The club signed the free agent after working Odighizuwa out Thursday morning. The defensive end is a former third-round pick of the New York Giants in 2015.

After appearing in four games as a rookie, injuries ultimately landed the defensive end on injured reserve. Odighizuwa appeared in 14 games in 2016, but was released by the Giants last August and did not play in the league in 2017.

Odighizuwa (6-3, 267) played his college ball at UCLA where he earned second-team All-Pac 12 honors as a senior.

There's no doubt that the 25-year old pass rusher is a physical specimen. Blessed with 11-inch hands, Odighizuwa ran a 4.62 40-time in pre-draft testing and had a 39-inch vertical leap.

The Bills are hoping the 25-year old can recapture his pass rushing form and become a find similar to that of Eddie Yarbrough, who proved to be a productive find last offseason.
