One of the big storylines for the Buffalo Bills this offseason is whether or not they will be able to bring back Matt Milano. The team’s starting linebacker is expected to test free agency and most certainly will have plenty of suitors.
The former fifth round pick has developed into a key part of this defense next to Tremaine Edmunds. He has become one of the better linebackers in the league, especially when it comes to pass coverage.
However, the Bills are up against the salary cap and may not be able to afford to pay Milano what some other teams may be willing to offer. There is also the concern of Milano being an injury risk as he has not played a full 16 game regular season in the past three seasons and whether it makes sense to offer such a big contract.
If the Buffalo Bills believe Matt Milano is a crucial part of this defense and make a push to bring him back, these are the five teams that they are likely going to face the toughest competition from in free agency.
