Morgan Engel-USA TODAY SportsLinebacker may not be an immediate position of need for the Buffalo Bills, given the strength of the team’s three presumed starters heading into the 2019 season, but it is definitely a grouping where depth is needed. With one of the team’s starting linebackers saying openly that 2019 will be his final season in the NFL, it’s imperative that the team finds quality, young depth to develop for the future.In today’s edition of “90 players in 90 days,” we profile one of those players the team hoped could be that type of project. Given his tumultuous offseason, it’s possible that may never come to fruition.Name: Tyrel DodsonNumber: 53Position: LBHeight/Weight: 6’ 237 lbs. Age: 20 (21 on 6/25/19)Experience/Draft: R; undrafted after 2019 NFL DraftCollege: Texas A&MAcquired: Signed as UDFA with Buffalo on 5/9/19Financial situation (per Spotrac): Dodson’s contract is a standard three-year pact for undrafted rookies. It totals $1,755,000 in value, none of which is guaranteed. Dodson stands to count $495,000 against Buffalo’s cap if he makes the final roster.2018 Recap: As a junior at A&M Thomas Sweeney NFL Draft , Dodson saw his overall numbers decline from what was a fairly solid sophomore campaign. After notching 104 tackles (ten for a loss), with 5.5 sacks and three interceptions in 2017, he only managed 70 tackles (seven for a loss) half a sack, and one interception in 2018. He did return that one interception 78 yards for a touchdown. He also had three pass breakups and a fumble recovery in 2018.Positional outlook: Dodson joins a crowded linebacker group that has some pretty distinct tiers. Lorenzo Alexander, Tremaine Edmunds, and Matt Milano are the clear starters for 2019, with Julian Stanford, Deon Lacey, and Maurice Alexander set as solid veteran depth with excellent ability on special teams. Corey Thompson, Vosean Joseph, and Juwan Foggie join Dodson as the young players fighting for a spot on the roster.2019 Offseason: It has not been a good one. Dodson was arrested after a May 25 incident where his girlfriend called police Thomas Sweeney Buffalo Bills Jersey , saying that Dodson had assaulted her. He stands accused of disorderly conduct, assault/domestic violence, and damage to property of less than $2,000. Dodson has denied the allegations.2019 Season outlook: The Bills have said that they are gathering information on Dodson’s arrest, which very well may have more of a bearing on his ability to make the football team than his actual level of play. If the domestic violence charges levied against him are proven, the Bills will almost certainly release him—as they should. Even if charges are dropped, or it’s found that he is innocent, his chances of making the roster are slim. It’s more likely that he’s a practice-squad candidate, with his arrest making even that a long shot at this point. Doctors have yet to fully clear Bills quarterback Josh Allen, but all signs point to his return Sunday against the Jaguars. The rookie was expected to have a full practice Monday. Our medical staff Infant Devin Singletary Jersey , Josh, our strength and conditioning staff have done a wonderful job.”Allen injured his elbow in an Oct. 14 loss to the Texans. He missed the four games since but is “comfortable” with the elbow again after limited work before the team’s open date.
