This will be the first snaps this preseason for the Buffalo Bills starting middle linebackers. This season is a pivotal one for Tremaine Edmunds as the team will be looking for him to take that next step in his career.
The Bills drafted Edmunds in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft and he has been the starter the past three seasons. He has had at least 100 total tackles each season and made the Pro Bowl the past two years.
However, Leslie Frazier talked at the beginning of training camp about the need for more “impact plays” from the starting middle linebacker. If Edmunds is able to do that, it will go a long way in helping this defense to return to being a Top 5 group in the NFL.
