The Buffalo Bills’ defense took a massive hit when defensive tackle DaQuan Jones suffered a pectoral muscle injury in the loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and many Bills fans were disappointed when Buffalo didn't trade for a big body to take Jones’ place in the middle of the defense.

On Thursday, general manager Brandon Beane addressed the issue, signing defensive tackle Linval Joseph, a 13-year veteran, and today’s issue of the Buffalo Rumblinks discusses the signing and how Joseph will help improve Buffalo’s run defense.
