When the Bills released defensive end Mark Anderson earlier this week, there was much speculation about who would take his place as Mario Williams’ bookend on the defensive line.

Chris Kelsay and Shawne Merriman had already retired, so there seemed to be no obvious replacement on the roster, although as Buffalo Bills Draft’s own Dan Hope pointed out on Wednesday, there might be a number of possibilities already on the roster. However, in order to truly understand how the Bills plan to fill Mark Anderson’s spot on the roster, it’s important to look at how the defensive end position is used in Mike Pettine’s scheme.
