The Buffalo Bills have decided to exercise defensive tackle Ed Oliver's fifth-year option.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane said Oliver's production last season made the decision simple.

"I think it definitely made the decision much easier," Beane told One Bills Live. "You always take these decisions seriously, but Ed has made strides every year and that's what you want to see when you're picking this up."

Oliver started in all 17 games last season and totaled four sacks, 14 quarterback hits, 10 tackles for loss, 41 total tackles and one forced fumble.

During his three years with Buffalo, Oliver has played in 49 career games and racked up 12 sacks, 28 quarterback hits, 21 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and 117 total tackles.

The defensive tackle was drafted by the Bills with the ninth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
