Javon Hargrave said Bills showed interest before he signed with Eagles

The Bills were among the teams that showed interest in former Steelers lineman Javon Hargrave, he told Philadelphia area reporters after agreeing to a five-year, $65 million deal with the Eagles.

“A few teams (wanted me) but for me I think the Eagles were the most interested team,” Hargrave said.  “I won’t get into all that, but the Eagles were the biggest team. I feel welcome. I feel they really wanted me and I’m going to a team that’s used to winning, so leaving the Steelers to go to the Eagles isn’t a hard job for me.

"It’s still a winning environment, I’m still around some great talent, so it was really an easy decision.”

He had 10.5 sacks over the last two seasons  in Pittsburgh.

The Bills lost Shaq Lawson and Jordan Phillips in free agency, with Lawson signed with Miami for three years and $30 million and Phillips with Arizona for four years and $40 million.

Buffalo then added defensive end Mario Addison from Carolina, defensive tackle Vernon Butler from Carolina and defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson from Seattle.
