Linebacker Matt Milano‘s stay in Buffalo is set to run through at least the 2026 season.

The Bills announced that Milano has agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension. His contract was previously set to void after the 2024 season.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Milano’s new deal will result in $6 million in salary cap savings for the Bills this season.

Milano was a 2017 fifth-round pick and has spent his entire career with the Bills. He is coming off a season that saw him selected as a first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler for the first time in his career. Milano had 99 tackles, three interceptions, 1.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries on the way to receiving those honors.

  1. I’d love to see Milano play his whole career in Buffalo. I’ve never seen him give less than 100% effort.

    With this & a few other restructures, the Bills should be able to clear enough cap to address some needs in FA. They won’t make any big splashes like last year, but hopefully they can sign a good guard and maybe a WR or safety.

  2. Smart move from both sides. Matt deserves it. His stats from last year are impressive.
    More power to you, Matt!

  3. What’s the point of the salary cap if you’re never held accountable for it? It’s not fair to the other teams that are fiscally responsible.

  4. You will see a lot of this in Buffalo where they try to extend players currently on the roster for possibly less than market value in order to remain competitive in coming seasons, because they have cap problems (allegedly lol…the cap is so vague) for the next several years. They won’t be able to shop big free agents much, if at all. They will need to go forward with what they have, and draft picks. For that reason, I see them in the mix, but possibly unable to get over the hump before their window closes given how competitive the AFC will be and the cap straps they have. They will likely be “almost good enough” but not quite get there. KC and Cincy have much better Cap situations in 2024 and 2025, and there are other competitors in the AFC that can take a bite out of them. They may have missed their Super Bowl opportunity this past season.
