Baylon Spector

Another position the Buffalo Bills have added more depth than in past seasons is at linebacker as the team elected to keep six linebackers. That extra spot went to seventh round draft pick Baylon Spector, who beat out Joe Giles-Harris for a spot on the 53-man roster.

Spector has had an impressive preseason, and certainly that factored into the Bills’ decision to keep him on the 53-man roster. If they were to cut him in the initial round of cuts, there could have been a good chance he would have been claimed by another team.

The former Clemson linebacker showed he can compete in the NFL, both from his play on defense and also on special teams.

The Buffalo Bills don’t want to lose a player as talented as Spector but if they need to create a roster spot, it may be the former draft pick who loses his spot. The only hope then becomes he clears waivers and can return as a member of the practice squad.
