Buffalo Bills Linebackers (6)

Tremaine Edmunds, Matt Milano, Tyrel Dodson, Tyler Matakevich, Terrel Bernard, Baylon Spector

Similar to other positions, the top of the depth chart should not look different this season with Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano as the starters. The team also will have Tyler Matakevich back, who is one of the best special teams players in the league.

The depth at this position has the potential to look very different though. The Buffalo Bills released A.J. Klein and Tyrel Dodson should be the favorite to replace him as that primary backup at either linebacker spot.

The Bills also drafted two linebackers this year with Terrel Bernard in the third round and Baylon Spector in the seventh. These two linebackers will be joining Andre Smith, Marquel Lee, and Joe Giles-Harris in competing for probably two roster spots. At this point, the rookies should have the edge but there will be plenty decided during the offseason.
