As expected, the Buffalo Bills have exercised the fifth-year option on defensive tackle Ed Oliver’s rookie contract, the team announced on Tuesday.
This move was expected after general manager Brandon Beane told the media last month they would exercise the option.
Oliver is guaranteed to make $10.753 million in 2023, all of which will count against the salary cap. However, the Bills and Oliver could agree to a long-term extension before then, which could change that figure.
The 24-year-old has played in 49 career games and racked up 12 sacks, 28 quarterback hits, 21 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and 117 total tackles.
Oliver was drafted by the Bills with the ninth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
