Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes saw his nearly decade stay in western New York come to an official end this week.

Hughes, 34, had been a free agent following the 2021 season but had yet to sign with a team. That happened and the club was not the Bills, rather, his hometown Houston Texans.

Hughes’ stay in Buffalo ends the stay of the longest-tenured member of the roster. He first joined the Bills back in April 2013 via trade with the Indianapolis Colts.

Since then, Hughes never missed a single game due to injury (only one season finale with playoffs locked up) and picked up lots of memories along the way. Reflecting back on Buffalo via a goodbye Instagram post, Hughes was grateful for the experience.

“It’s been an amazing 9 years. My family and I enjoyed it all. Forever grateful and unbelievably blessed,” Hughes wrote.
