TRADE: Bills Trade DE Eli Harold To Eagles For OT Ryan Bates


The Buffalo Bills announced Friday that they’ve traded DE Eli Harold to the Eagles for OL Ryan Bates.

Harold, 25, is a former third-round pick of the 49ers back in 2015. He was traded to the Lions last year for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2020.

Harold played out the final year of his four-year, $3.071 million contract before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Bills this offseason. 

In 2018, Harold appeared in 13 games for the Lions and recorded 10 tackles, four sacks and a pass defense.

Bates, 22, wound up going undrafted out of Penn State back in May. He agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Eagles soon after.

During his college career at PSU, Bates started 40 games, primarily at left tackle, and was a third-team All-Big Ten selection in 2018.
