With the move, Buffalo adds depth behind starters Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano
ORCHARD PARK – The Buffalo Bills added depth to the linebacker position with the hires of Tyrell Adams and Marquel Lee to one-season contracts on Wednesday.
Adams owns five seasons of NFL experience, after spending the past three years with the Houston Texans. He set a career high of 12 games started in 16 appearances, where he scored two sacks and was credited with 122 tackles.

Adams had a brief stint in Buffalo when the Bills claimed him via waivers in October 2017, before releasing him five days later.

Lee has three seasons of NFL experience with the Raiders, from 2017 to 2019. He was cut by the Raiders last summer after failing his fitness test, and he did not play in the league last year. Selected by the Raiders in the fifth round of the 2017 draft, Lee had 19 starts over 36 games.
Both are expected to compete for depth spots behind starters Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, and veteran backup AJ Klein.
