Addison, 34, played the past two seasons with the Bills. He will be reunited in Houston with Jacques Cesaire, the Texans' defensive line coach who spent the 2020-21 seasons as the Bills' assistant defensive line coach. Addison, 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds, led the Bills with seven sacks in 2021.
Jay Skurski looks at Miller's deal as the cost of doing business for an elite pass rusher in today’s NFL. Miller also brings with him the experience that comes with winning a pair of Super Bowl championships. That’s valuable for a roster in Buffalo looking to get over that hump.

Lotulelei, 32, spent the past four years with the Bills, playing three seasons. He opted out of the 2020 season over concerns related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Even in just 28 games, something about Buffalo seeped into Jordan Phillips. He left, but he felt caught in what he realized he'd left behind.

The journey to the postseason – which begins Saturday when the New England Patriots visit Highmark Stadium for an AFC wild-card playoff game – has been full of adversity. Some of that is the same type as every NFL team goes through, and some of it has been self-inflicted and unique to the Bills.
