Joking Rex Ryan: Bills DE Jerry Hughes is 'ruining practice'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rex Ryan has declared that new Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes is wrecking practice. Fortunately for the team, it was a tongue-in-cheek remark.

Ryan made the joke because Hughes, who signed a five-year, $45 million contract extension this offseason, has been so dominant in the current sessions. Ryan estimated that Hughes registered five or six sacks before he had to pull him off the field and allow the offense to get its work in uninterrupted.

"This just in: I am really happy we signed Jerry Hughes back," Ryan told Syracuse.com. "It's rare that you have to pull a guy from practice because he's ruining your practice. I had to pull him (Wednesday)."

Hughes is coming off successive 10-plus sack seasons. Ryan expressed certainty that he will continue to thrive despite a shift in defensive philosophy.

"If he keeps rushing the pass like he did (Wednesday), yeah I'd say so," Ryan said. "You can put him anywhere, too. He plays much bigger than his frame. He's like 255 or something, but he plays much bigger. He can play as an end, play as an outside backer. He's definitely a physical player, he's a great athlete."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Bills announced they've re-signed defensive end Jerry Hughes, who broke out last season with 54 tackles, 13 for loss, 18 quarterback hits, 10.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.

While the Bills did not disclose terms of the deal, the Buffalo News said Hughes, 26, got a five-year deal worth $45 million, including $22 million guaranteed. Hughes was hotly coveted on the open market and his signing is another significant move for a team that's already traded for running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Matt Cassel.
