The Bills took the expected step of extending Tre'Davious White's ties to the club beyond the 2020 season as they exercised the fifth-year option on his rookie contract.

The deadline to make use of the fifth-year option is May 4th.

"We'd like to get guys done or re-done if we can," Beane said back in March. "That's the ideal way. When it's time to sign a guy or re-sign a guy that you have on your roster, it always takes two to figure it out. The best deals are win-win."

"Any guy that's been in Tre's situation we want back and obviously Tre' is a guy we love and we want back."

By exercising the option the Bills guarantee White's contract for injury only in that fifth year. With the first-team All-Pro being the 27th pick in round one, his fifth-year salary will be the average of the third through 25th highest salaries at his position.

White was named to the Pro Bowl after the 2019 season in which he tied for the league lead in interceptions with six and had a team-high 17 pass breakups.

White's option year will become fully guaranteed on the first day of the league year in 2021.
