  • Bills' Tyler Matakevich: Now can practice

    Matakevich (undisclosed) was activated from the active/PUP list Tuesday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

    Matakevich has been sidelined since camp opened, but now he'll get a chance to compete for a roster spot as Week 1 draws closer. The 30-year-old has been a special-teams ace for the Bills in each of the last three seasons, seeing limited spot duty on defense. He'll work to earn a similar role again this season after re-signing with Buffalo in March.

  • Bills' Tyler Matakevich: Placed on PUP list

    Matakevich (undisclosed) was placed on the active/PUP list Tuesday, Alec White of the Bills' official site reports.

    Matakevich will open training camp on the sidelines, but he'll be eligible to return to practice and play at any point this preseason, which starts Aug. 12 versus the Colts. The linebacker operated almost exclusively on special teams in 2022, recording six tackles while playing only two of his 324 snaps on defense.

  • Bills' Tyler Matakevich: New deal with Buffalo

    Matakevich and the Bills agreed to a two-year contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Matakevich will stay in Buffalo, returning to the team for a fourth straight year in 2023. The linebacker is a leader on the Bills' special teams units, playing only two defensive snaps last season in comparison to 322 on special teams. Matakevich recorded a career-low six tackles in 2022, something he'll look to improve next year.

  • Bills' Tyler Matakevich: First career interception Sunday

    Matakevich totaled four solo tackles, one pass deflection and one interception during Sunday's 40-0 win over the Texans.

    Matakevich recorded his first interception of his six-year career against the Texans on Sunday. The 28-year-old is a special-teams ace, but he isn't a viable fantasy option due to his lack of defensive snaps, as he only has 14 of them on the season, seven of which came in Sunday's blowout win.

  • Bills' Tyler Matakevich: Re-ups with Buffalo

    The Bills signed Matakevich to a one-year contract extension Monday. WGR 550 in Buffalo reports.

    Matakevich only played 72 defensive snaps last season -- his first with the Bills after four seasons with the Steelers -- but he's one of the best special teamers in the league and Buffalo is happy to have him back. Matakevich led the Bills in special teams tackles (10) and snaps (71 percent) in 2020.

  • Steelers' Tyler Matakevich: New special teamer for Buffalo

    The Bills have signed Matakevich to a two-year deal worth up to $7.15 million, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Plain and simple, this is a depth signing, but the Bills are on the lookout for high-motor guys with special teams skills and Matakevich fits that bill. He's averaged more than 300 special-teams snaps per season since joining the Steelers as a seventh-rounder out of Temple in 2016 while finishing in the top 10 in special-teams tackles three times. Matakevich hardly ever saw snaps on defense with Pittsburgh, but he's probably got enough ability to serve as the primary backup to one of Buffalo's starting linebackers.

  • Steelers' Tyler Matakevich: No tackles in loss

    Matakevich failed to record a tackle in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.

    Matakevich played almost exclusively on special teams and finishes the 2019 season with 18 tackles in 16 games played. An unrestricted free agent, his future with Pittsburgh is unclear.
