The Bills’ salary-cap constraints will prompt starting linebacker Matt Milano to explore free agency next month, John Wawrow of The Associated Press reports.

Milano, 26, will hit the market as one of the top linebackers available. It likely means his time in Buffalo has ended, something General Manager Brandon Beane recently sounded resigned to.

The Bills aren’t alone in being salary-cap strapped, with the cap falling from last season’s $198 million. The Bills are estimated to have about $3 million available if the cap falls to the minimum $180 million and will create space by cutting players and/or restructuring contracts.

Still, they aren’t expected to have room to make a competitive offer to Milano, who has started 38 games in his four seasons.

The Bills made him a fifth-round choice in 2017.

Injuries limited him to 10 games and five starts last season, but Milano still posted career highs with 3.5 sacks and nine quarterback pressures. He also had an interception.

We knew this.

Beane gave us all kinds of hints during his press conference.

Plus anyone with a calculator could tell there was no room to make him a competitive offer.

I love him but you don't pay top dollar for a guy who can not play a full season

If the Bills do Pre-Draft Visits with college prospects who play Mike LB, you may be getting your wish...

I think his fate was sealed when our defense underperformed in AFC championship game. Defense was better against KC without him.

It’ll be a loss for both him and Buffalo. He’ll get paid but he likely won’t be playing for as good of an organization. Money trumps winning for many athletes, which is disheartening for the most loyal of fans.

I got over it a long time ago.  Players like Matt, who've made very little money so far due to being a 5th round pick, need to get it while they can.  Plus, he's 27 so this is his big chance to cash in.

I'm not so sure he'd be better out there.  What makes you think so?
