The Buffalo Bills announced on Tuesday that they have re-signed veteran linebacker Ramon Humber.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported the details of the deal.

Those dollar figures mean Humber will, once again, play for the veteran minimum, which means he will only count $690,000 against the team's 2018 salary cap. The nine-year veteran had played for the one-year veteran minimum for each of the last two years, as well. Humber won the starting weakside linebacker position last year in training camp after primarily being only a special teams player in 2016. But he lost that starting role to rookie Matt Milano about midway through the season. After that, he only played about one-third of the snaps on defense and took on a bigger special teams role once again.

The 30-year-old recorded 83 total tackles and a sack last year for the Bills.
