Anthony Walker Jr.

Anthony Walker Jr. is one of the more underrated linebackers in the NFL and has been a productive player during his time with the Indianapolis Colts and last year with the Cleveland Browns.

Walker was a fifth round draft pick by the Colts in 2017 and started 48 games over four seasons with a majority of those games next to All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard. He would record 343 total tackles, three interceptions, 3.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries.

In his first season with the Browns, he started 12 games and had 113 total tackles, one sack, and two passes defended.

Anthony Walker Jr. is similar to Devin Bush in that he is a smaller linebacker at 6’1″ and 235 pounds but makes up for that with speed and quickness. Among the linebackers on the list, he could be the best bargain in free agency as he has signed only one-year deals the past two seasons for $3 million and $4.25 million according to Spotrac.

If the Buffalo Bills are limited by the salary cap next year, Anthony Walker Jr. makes the most sense as he fits the best for what they look for at linebacker and is someone that they could add with the limited cap space.
