Tim Settle, a defensive tackle with the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills, was born on July 11, 1997. In the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected him from Virginia Tech, where he played college football.
In Manassas, Virginia, Settle attended Stonewall Jackson High School. He was a member of the Raiders’ high school football team. As a senior, he recorded 10 pass deflections, two fumble recoveries, and three sacks in addition to 72 tackles.
Settle, a five-star recruit chose the Virginia Tech Hokies over Louisville and USC in January 2015 to play football for the team.
The Washington Redskins selected Settle in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 163rd overall. He played in the Redskins’ 24-6 season-opening victory over the Arizona Cardinals, marking his NFL debut.
He made his first three tackles in his professional career in Week 12 against the Dallas Cowboys. Settle and the Buffalo Bills agreed to a two-year contract on March 17, 2022.
Settle has experience playing on the edge and, as seen in the picture above, isn’t hesitant to contribute on special teams.
When playing for Washington in the past, Settle had to get used to a 3-4 defense. He did, however, state on the Commanders’ website in 2018 that he is used to a 4-3 offense as the Bills do.
