Bills To Sign LB Tyler Matakevich

The Bills have agreed to sign linebacker Tyler Matakevich, as Mike Garafolo of tweets. The former Steelers special teams ace is set to earn $9MM over the course of the two-year deal.

Matakevich isn’t a household name, but he was a key component of the Steelers’ third facet. The bigger blow, of course, came earlier this week when the Eagles agreed to sign defensive tackle Javon Hargrave to a three-year, $39MM deal with $29MM guaranteed. On the plus side, they’ve cuffed outside linebacker Bud Dupree via the tag.

Matakevich, a seventh-round pick in 2016, has spent his entire pro career to date with the Steelers.

        Btw, his nickname is Dirty Red because he will do whatever it takes to get the job done. I will miss him.

    They have loads of cap space, and the owner is worth over $4 Billion. If he helps their lousy special teams it’s worth it. This is why the rank and file approved the
    CBA, so the lesser players can make some money too.
