Buffalo Bills Linebackers

Starters: Tremaine Edmunds, Matt Milano

Bench: A.J. Klein, Tyrel Dodson, Tyrell Adams, Marquel Lee, Tyler Matakevich, Andre Smith

The Buffalo Bills won’t look much different on the top of the depth chart after re-signing Matt Milano to a new deal this offseason. He will continue to play alongside Tremaine Edmunds when the team is in their typical nickel defense.

When they line up in their traditional 4-3 defense then A.J. Klein is likely the player that will step onto the field.

However, it will be an interesting training camp battle for the remaining spots at the position. Even though he doesn’t play much on defense, Tyler Matakevich is likely a favorite to earn a spot due to his play on special teams. This will leave one, maybe two, more spots for Tyrel Dodson, Tyrell Adams, Marquel Lee, and Andre Smith.
