2021 Worst Buffalo Bills values: No. 9—LB Tyler Matakevich

Recommended Posts

He provided value, sure, but not that much

The Buffalo Bills value special teams, but the highest-paid player on special teams for them in 2021 wasn’t a kicker, holder, returner, or even a punter. Tyler Matakevich was a special teams captain but still comes in ninth on our list of worst values.

In the past when we’ve done our listing, we used cap hit to reflect value, but with the cap shenanigans employed by general manager Brandon Beane recently and the improvement of the databases, we’ve switched to yearly cash payments as our metric.

Matakevich collected $3.35 million in cash in 2021, good for 54th among all linebackers in the NFL. On the Bills, he was the 20th-highest paid player and the third-highest paid linebacker.

That’s starter’s money even though he played just 4% of the team’s defensive snaps. He did play nearly 80% of the special teams snaps—the most on the team by a wide margin.

His cash number drops a bit in 2022, as he signed an extension in 2021 and received some signing bonus money. His $2.5 million in cash will be the lowest of his three years in Buffalo if he doesn’t sign another deal.

“There he goes. One of God's own prototypes.

A high-powered mutant of some kind, never even considered for mass production.

Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”
