Outside of the question marks at cornerback, the biggest concern for the Buffalo Bills defense at this point could be the lack of depth at linebacker. The Bills did add A.J. Klein, who has spent time with McDermott in Carolina and played middle linebacker in place of the injured Luke Kuechly, but the team might want another option if Tremaine Edmunds were forced to miss extended time.
A player like Alec Ogletree would make plenty of sense for this defense, even though he doesn’t have the familiarity that some of the other players on this list have. Ogletree was the starting middle linebacker for the New York Giants the past two years but wasn’t able to produce like he did with the Rams, where he started his career.
However, at only 28 years of age, a spot on the Buffalo Bills backing up Tremaine Edmunds could be the perfect spot for the veteran linebacker. This could give him a chance to practice and refine some of the issues he had with the Giants.
As for the Bills they get a linebacker with starting experience, 93 career starts, that really could be a backup at all three linebacker spots. This would eliminate any concern about a lack by having a veteran like Alec Ogletree.
