The Buffalo Bills signed free agent tackle LaAdrian Waddle over the weekend and his contract numbers were made public Wednesday, solidifying him on the roster bubble. Mike Rodak tweeted the details.
“LaAdrian Waddle’s one-year deal with the Bills is worth $2 million. He gets a $1 million salary (non-guaranteed), $400,000 signing bonus, $31,250 roster bonus per game on 46-man roster and $100,000 workout bonus.”
What’s that mean? Buffalo can move on from Waddle very easily at any point. It’s a low-risk deal for Buffalo. To put it in context, guard Vlad Ducasse is set to make $2 million in 2019. It’s a deal for a veteran depth lineman.
Waddle will have the seventh-highest cap hit on the Bills’ offensive line, ahead of rookie deals for incumbent starters Dion Dawkins and Wyatt Teller.
