Milano, who did not even make the Pro Bowl this season, will instead receive a much more significant honor. He is one of three off-ball linebackers to make the team, joining Fred Warner of the San Francisco 49ers and Roquan Smith of the Baltimore Ravens.
The 28-year-old linebacker finished the regular season with a new career high in solo tackles (72), 99 total stops, 12 tackles for a loss, seven quarterback hits, 1.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, three interceptions, and one defensive touchdown (an interception return against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2).
Diggs, who was a first team All-Pro in 2020, made it as a second team All-Pro this season. He tied the Bills’ single-season record for receiving touchdowns with 11, which was also a career high for him, and finished the regular season with 108 receptions, 1,429 receiving yards (the second-highest total of his career), and those 11 touchdowns.
Other Bills that received votes for the All-Pro teams, but ultimately did not make it, include quarterback Josh Allen, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, safety Jordan Poyer, kicker Tyler Bass, and return man Nyheim Hines.
