Bills' Milano signs $44m extension as Buffalo eye another run at Super Bowl

The Buffalo Bills have re-signed star linebacker Matt Milano as they eye another run at the Super Bowl, the NFL team announced on Thursday.

There were concerns the Bills could lose Milano in free agency due to cap pressure following Buffalo's AFC Championship Game appearance last season.

But Milano has signed a four-year contract extension reportedly worth $44million in Buffalo.

Milano missed six games in 2020 as the Bills eventually fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title decider.

Milano leads NFL in tackles

The 26-year-old has started 39 of 55 games with Buffalo and produced 265 tackles, 6.0 sacks and five interceptions in his career.

Milano – drafted by Buffalo in 2017 – tallied 100 tackles in the 2019 regular season, joining Tremaine Edmunds and Jordan Poyer as the only Bills with 100-plus tackles.

He finished the 2018 campaign as the only player in the NFL with 75-plus tackles, three-plus interceptions and three-plus fumble recoveries.
