Biermann played eight seasons with the Atlanta Falcons; one of those (2013) ending after only two games due to a torn Achilles tendon. In those eight seasons Biermann played in 114 games, recorded 333 tackles, 23.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, two interceptions, and two touchdowns. Kroy will turn 31 the day after the Bills’ season opener versus the Baltimore Ravens.
Biermann was listed by Jeff Hunter as a possible free agent target back in February. Jeff noted that Biermann would be a great back up to whoever the Bills found to replace Mario Williams. Matt Warren reiterated the possibility of the Bills bringing Biermann in again yesterday, noting that they had him in for a visit in March. Instead of backing up one of the Lawsons, it now looks like Biermann may be in line for a starting role given the string of injuries to the Bills’ outside linebackers.
