Bills don’t need linebackers


Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey for the spoke to the media for the first time in a while.

One thing that came out of the press conference is that the Bills don’t need outside linebackers.

When commenting on Aaron Schobel in regards to what he would play if he returns Gailey stated he sees him more as a outside linebacker.

That pretty much means the defensive ends. From last year’s 4-3 will play outside linebacker.

The transition should be easy as the only difference is that an outside linebacker covers more and uses a two point stance.

As for the defensive ends they will most likely be Kyle Williams at the left defensive with Chris Kelsay at the right defensive end, and Marcus Stroud at the nose tackle.

Obviously this could change if Schobel retires or the Bills acquire a nose tackle.

In the end the Bills don’t need a nose tackle as there is no difference from being double teamed in a 4-3 versus a 3-4.
