Reports surfaced Monday evening indicating Floyd's departure to the San Francisco 49ers, while simultaneously announcing Epenesa's contract extension with the Bills.

According to NFL Network, Floyd's contract with the 49ers spans two years and could potentially amount to $20 million. On the other hand, Epenesa's new deal, officially announced by the Bills at 6:30 p.m., carries a value of up to $20 million, with a base worth of $7 million for the 2024 season.

The Bills' current edge-rusher depth chart includes Greg Rousseau, Von Miller, A.J. Epenesa, Kingsley Jonathan, and Kameron Cline.

Epenesa, age 25, has accumulated 15 1/2 sacks across 58 games, with four starts, since his second-round draft selection in 2020. His agent commenced negotiations with other teams regarding contract terms starting at noon on Monday. Notably, Epenesa has maintained consistent performance with 6 1/2 sacks in each of the past two seasons, despite limited playing time, amounting to 375 and 387 snaps, respectively. Additionally, he becomes the second member of the Bills' 2020 draft class to secure a second contract with the team, following kicker Tyler Bass.
