Anthony is a former first-round pick by the Saints, while Bynes spent 2018 with the Cardinals. Both would help bolster the Bills’ depth at linebacker
Anthony, 26, is a former first-round pick out of Clemson by the Saints in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Dolphins acquired him from the Saints in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2017.
The Dolphins declined to pick up Anthony’s fifth-year option last year and he played out the final year of his four-year, $7.731 million rookie contract.
In 2018, Anthony appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and recorded four tackles.
Bynes, 29, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn back in 2011. He spent just over three years in Baltimore before he was waived and later signed to the Lions’ practice squad at the start of the 2014 season.
Detroit signed Bynes to a two-year, $1.81 million contract in 2015. The Cardinals signed him to a one-year contract in 2017 and brought him back for the 2018 season.
In 2018, Bynes appeared in 11 games for the Cardinals and recorded 75 tackles, two sacks, a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown and five pass defenses.
