Fede visited the Bills on March 29, leaving the team facility without a contract. He played for the Miami Dolphins over the last four seasons, amassing 55 tackles and 1 sack over his four-year career. Miami drafted Fede in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft; in doing so, Fede became the first (and to date, only) player drafted out of Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York.
As a football signing, this does very little for the Bills other than add bodies to the defensive line. Head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane have overhauled the position this offseason, parting ways with veteran defensive end Ryan Davis and signing Fede, Trent Murphy, and Owa Odighizuwa.
As a fellow Marist College alumnus (or “Harvard on the Hudson,” as we like to say), this signing makes me quite happy. Go Red Foxes, go!
