The Bills are expected to officially announce the re-signing of Hughes in a Monday morning press conference, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.

The Bills have plenty of cap room to re-sign Hughes, who's shined since the Bills got the better of a trade with the Colts and seen their defensive end put up 20 sacks over the past two seasons. New coach and defensive guy Rex Ryan has to be quite pleased with a core of Mario Williams, Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus, and a returning Hughes to work with as part of his front seven.

Coach Rex Ryan expressed a big interest in bringing back Hughes, who's about to become a free agent, reports. Ryan told FOX Sports, "I absolutely envision that. I think Jerry is an outstanding player. The last two years I've been against him and he's tremendous. I hope he's still a Buffalo Bill moving forward. Sometimes things happen where that might not be a possibility, but I believe he's a great player and I hope he's a Buffalo Bill for a long time."

Hughes has implied he won't be giving the Bills a discount, but he's revived his career and then some since being acquired by the team in a steal of a trade with the Colts. Ryan is a defensive guy, so you can bet he likes nothing more than the image of Mario Williams, Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus, and Jerry Hughes manning his defensive line next season. It's worth noting Ryan runs a different style of defense than the 4-3 style of Jim Schwartz - one the Bills had so much success with in 2014 - but it'd be tough to imagine Hughes not being a key source of sacks should he return to the Bills.

Hughes played just 12 of the Bills' final 36 defensive plays Sunday after taking a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, The Buffalo News reports.

Hughes has had four 15-yard penalties this season - three of them unsportsmanlike flags - and apparently the coaching staff had enough, though Doug Marrone seemed to struggle with an explanation as to why he was surprised Hughes sat so much. (It turns out line coach Pepper Johnson performed the discipline.) We expect Hughes to have a regular play count this week against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, though IDP owners have to be disappointed with his two-tackle, no-sack performance against Denver.

Through eight games, Hughes has 28 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, and a forced fumble.

People were excited when Hughes resurrected his career in 2013 following a trade from the Colts, but he's got a shot at outproducing that fine season in 2014. With Marcell Dareus, Mario Williams, and Kyle Williams all drawing plenty of attention, Hughes should continue to find himself in many 1-on-1 match-ups. He makes for a decent IDP play the rest of the way.

Hughes saw action on 45 of 62 defensive snaps in Sunday's upset win over the Lions, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak. Hughes had a big game production-wise, with 2.0 sacks, five total tackles, and a forced fumble.

Entering Sunday, Hughes had seen action on just 51 percent of the team's defensive snaps, so Sunday's work certainly gave the coaching staff cause to get him in there a little more. Part of the reason for Sunday's boost was likely due to injuries to Kyle Williams and Nigel Bradham, so if you own Hughes in IDP leagues it's worth paying attention to the health of his teammates. His snap counts have been more inconsistent than last season, when he put up 10.0 sacks and 46 total tackles.

Through three games, Hughes has put up nine total tackles and a sack.

The tackles are a little above last season's pace when Hughes put up 46, but he's getting a little behind the nice sack total he put up last season. With an incredible group of linemen next to him in Mario Williams, Marcell Dareus, and Kyle Williams, we feel pretty good Hughes will see enough 1-on-1 match-ups that soon the QB takedowns will start to accrue. On the season, Hughes is seeing action on 48 percent of the defensive plays, far behind his three aforementioned teammates but within the range of last season's 53 percent. Still, there's a new defensive coordinator this season in Jim Schwartz, so we'll keep an eye on Hughes' playing time.
