Bills Bring in LB Help in Signing former Falcons LB Kroy Biermann

Kroy Biermann

The Bills have had issues staying healthy this camp, and because of it today they went out and got some help at the linebacker spot, inking former Falcons LB Kroy Biermann.

Here’s the story on Biermann, who had been with the Falcons the last nine seasons.

With their linebacking unit ravaged by injuries, the Bills have sought help from outside the organization for the second week in a row.

Kroy Biermann, a nine-year veteran who had spent his entire career with the Falcons through 2015, signed a one-year deal with Buffalo Monday.

Last week, after rookie linebacker Reggie Ragland went down with a season-ending knee injury, the Bills signed NFL veteran free agent linebackers Brandon Spikes and David Hawthorne.

Biermann actually visited the Bills back in March at the start of free agency, but he was not signed by Buffalo, or any other team. The 30-year-old is a former fifth-round draft pick of the Falcons who made 37 starts among his 104 NFL games. He has 23.5 sacks and has been in on 331 tackles, primarily as an outside linebacker.

This is just the latest move to shore up an area of the team that has been stricken by injury.

First-round draft choice Shaq Lawson

was supposed to fill the departed Mario Williams’ shoes, but he underwent shoulder surgery in May and is out until perhaps midseason.
