Buffalo Bills who could stay or go this offseason: Tremaine Edmunds, ILB
Tremaine Edmunds has quietly been one of the better linebackers in football for five years now, since entering the league back in 2018. He was one of the top names at the position along with Roquan Smith, who just got a record deal with the Baltimore Ravens.
While not yet getting the notoriety or cash that Smith has received, Edmunds continues to be a silent killer for the Bills defense. He has been as consistent as you could ask out of a young middle linebacker, especially considering the adversity this defense has faced in 2023.
With some key injuries this year, and an inconsistent pass rush, Edmunds continued to do his job and do it well. It was another season, and another 100-plus tackles for the former first rounder. Edmunds finished with 102 tackles, seven passes defensed and an interception in 2022. Like every year he’s been in the NFL, he did a little bit of everything.
His game is sound. And he is just 24 years old. It’s tough to imagine the Bills not bringing him back, but there are a few key decisions they need to make. Hopefully, for the Bills’ sake, Edmunds is a guy they opt to re-sign and they do it fairly quickly this offseason.
