Matt Milano, Bills

The Buffalo Bills agreed on a two-year extension with LB Matt Milano. The deal included a contract restructure which freed up $6 million in the salary cap.

Leighton Vander Esch, Cowboys

Since he was drafted, in 2018, Vander Esch has been one of the best linebackers in the NFL when he is healthy. This is the major problem though, he is constantly injured. But, because of his talent and quality, the Cowboys are re-signing him with a two-year, $11 million contract.

Lavonte David, Buccaneers

Speaking of re-signing a linebacker, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are keeping Lavonte David for another year, with a $7 million deal.
