The Buffalo Bills have completed a trade that will send Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars. According to the Bills, they will be receiving a 2018 sixth round draft pick in exchange for the services of the former Pro Bowl defensive lineman.

After being selected at pick No. 3 in the 2011 NFL Draft, Dareus has played his entire seven-year career in Buffalo. The former Alabama standout has only appeared in five games for the Bills this season - three of which were starts. The trade comes just before next week’s trade deadline.

The Bills made waves earlier this season by executing a series of trades that were headlined by wide receiver Sammy Watkins’ relocation to the Los Angeles Rams. Even after cutting ties with productive veteran players, Buffalo has still managed to record four wins in six games.
