Bryan Scott Re-Signed By Buffalo Bills - Again

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

A 32-year-old nickel linebacker, Scott has carved himself a niche - and produced in it - in the last three seasons with Buddy Nix at GM, regardless of the team's defensive scheme.

For the third time in four years, the Buffalo Bills have re-signed linebacker Bryan Scott, who posted the news to his Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Scott, who will turn 32 in April, has spent the last several seasons as a nickel linebacker in Buffalo's various defensive fronts. In three seasons under the Buddy Nix regime, he has been a consistent producer, combining for 172 tackles, four sacks, six interceptions, two forced fumbles and an improbable three defensive touchdowns playing roughly 50 percent of the team's snaps as a sub-package defender.

It's not precisely clear what kind of role Scott will have as the team transitions to a hybrid, multiple-front look under new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Conceivably, he'll still be asked to do a lot of the same things as a coverage player on obvious passing downs, but we'll know more when the team gets to camp this summer (or maybe even this spring).

For now, however, Scott's on the team's depth chart, and is now the only Bills defender over the age of 30.
