The Bills attempted to sign a 7-time All-Pro linebacker but were defeated by an NFC contender.

The Buffalo Bills were hoping to make a huge move before the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday, but they were beaten out by an NFC Super Bowl contender.

The Denver Broncos traded seven-time All-Pro linebacker Von Miller to the Los Angeles Rams for a second-round choice and a third-round pick in next year’s NFL draft a day before the deadline, making it one of the biggest moves of the season. The Rams will almost certainly be contenders in a competitive conference as a result of the transfer, but the Bills’ already league-best defense might be strengthened even further.

Miller has been targeted by the Bills.

The Bills, along with the Dallas Cowboys, were one of at least three clubs attempting to sign Miller before the deadline, according to NFL Network’s Peter Schrager on Good Morning Football. Miller may have offered a boost to a pass rush that has been erratic at times. It’s unclear how far the conversations have moved or whether the Bills have made an offer. The Bills’ defensive line has been a strength, but they have battled to get to the quarterback at times, as evidenced by their failure to sack Ryan Tannehill or generate consistent pressure against the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football.

The Broncos were also contacted by the Bills and Cowboys about Von Miller, according to @PSchrags.

With a slew of rivals banging on the door, now is the moment to get it done.

Despite whispers that the Bills were interested in adding another pass-catcher for Josh Allen and deadline-day speculation that backup quarterback Mitch Trubisky could be traded, the Bills remained steadfast and made no changes at the deadline. That means keeping their defensive line’s deep rotation intact. Some insiders suggested that the Bills may be willing to sell one of its lineman, and other clubs were said to be interested, but no deals were finalized.
