The more you think about Buffalo's linebacker position the more apparent it becomes that it IS an issue and a serious position of need.Keith Ellison is a decent starter and won't hold the defense back, but after him the only depth to speak of is a rookie whom is recovering from a blown knee. So, even if you feel fine with Ellison in there, the Bills still need solid depth at the position. Enter Angelo Crowell. His re-addition to this team could shore up a huge question mark for the Bills and automatically allocate Ellison to back-up the outside spots.
However, if Crowell demands too much money (could go either way) he may not be rehired. So that leaves Buffalo the draft and free agency to possibly add a starter AND quality depth. I think it's clear that the best option is to re-sign Crowell for two reasons: it gives Buffalo instant stability at the position and more flexability in acquiring personnel. I know that's the best way to go, but a considerable part of me wants to pick up one of the impact linebackers in the draft... if Crowell is signed you can all but take those guys off the table.
