Josh Bynes, weak-side linebacker( DOUG KAPUSTIN, MCT / November 28, 2013 )
GS: 6 | GP: 15 | Snaps: 749
Season in review: Bynes was the somewhat surprise starter at weak-side linebacker in the regular-season opener and he held that job up until Jameel McClain¿s Oct. 20th return. Ultimately, he settled into a role where he was mostly on the field on passing downs, which probably best suits his skill set. Bynes, who made the final tackle in Super Bowl XLVII, also was a constant on special teams.
Stat that stands out: 45 ¿ Number of total tackles for Bynes, which ranked 11th on the team.
Outlook for 2014 and beyond: The former undrafted free agent out of Auburn has improved each season and carved out a niche for himself as a valuable reserve linebacker and a solid performer on special teams. That might be his ceiling, but there is nothing wrong with that. He¿s an exclusive rights free agent so he¿s expected back at a modest salary.
