Buffalo Bills: 4 under-the-radar players to target in free agency
Another player who could be a good fit for this defense is outside linebacker Tyus Bowser. He was a second round pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2017 but has never really become a full-time starter.
The outside linebacker has started only two career games in four years but the past two seasons he has played around 45% of the defensive snaps. During that stretch, he had seven sacks, three interceptions, seven tackles for a loss, and seven passes defended.
If the Buffalo Bills were to add a player like Bowser, they could move him around similar to how they used Lorenzo Alexander in 2019. Both players are bigger outside linebackers and can line up outside or put their hand on the ground for a speed rush.
One of the areas that Bowser is a little better than Alexander is dropping back into coverage and for a bigger linebacker he does a good job. He likely wouldn’t command a big contract and the Buffalo Bills could improve significantly with a player like Bowser on the field.
