On Thursday afternoon, it was announced that the Buffalo Bills have re-signed stud linebacker Matt Milano to a four-year, $44 million deal with $24 million guaranteed.
This signing comes after the release of John Brown & Quinton Jefferson and the re-structures of Mitch Morse & Vernon Butler, creating enough cap space to be able to bring back one of their best players and defense
Re-signing Matt Milano was viewed, at first, to be nothing more than a dream, as General Manager Brandon Beane publicly said he has “the right” to test the market, especially with the lack of cap space the Bills originally had come into the offseason.
Milano, who was a fifth-round pick in 2017 out of Boston College, has been a key member of the Bills’ defense since he won the starting job midway through his rookie season. Since then, he has amassed over 270 tackles, six sacks, and five interceptions.
Having Milano back next season will be huge for the Bills as they hope for another shot at a trip to the Super Bowl, as Milano will continue to lead the defense and improve upon his already stellar play.
