Bills Sign First Free Agent

Kennedy Stays In Minnesota: Jimmy Kennedy's visit with the Bills ended with him leaving town without a contract. A day later he has signed a two year deal to stay with the Vikings. He said he liked what he heard in Buffalo but returning to Minnesota and other free agent visits remained in option. The Bills have now signed just one free agent and had just three visits overall.


Friday March 12, 2010

Kennedy Visits Today: Free agent Jimmy Kennedy actually visited One Bills Drive today. He likely arrived last night but toured the facility today.


Thursday March 11, 2010

Bills Re-Sign Klopfenstein: The Bills agreed to a terms with free agent TE Joe Klopfenstein. He was on and off the Bills roster during the second half of the season last year and received minimal playing time. He was a restricted free agent who was not tendered a contract so he was free to sign with any team. Front Office Page.

Kennedy Reportedly Visiting: NFL Network reports that Vikings free agent DT Jimmy Kennedy is scheduled to visit with the Bills today. Kennedy has not lived up to his expectations as a first round draft pick by the Rams in 2003. Kennedy has played exclusively in 4-3 defensive schemes so it is unclear if he is big enough to play nose tackle in the Bills 3-4 defense.


Wednesday March 10, 2010

Hamdan Finds A Home: Former Bills third string QB Gibran Hamdan has found a job north of the border. He has signed with the Toronto Argonauts. He was courted by the Argos before the 2008 season as well. In other Bills free agent news, Terrell Owens apparently will not end up in Cincinnati. He visited there but left without being offered a contract. The Bengals have since signed Antonio Bryant. Front Office Page.

No Word On Schobel's Future Yet: Today was the day the Bills were suppose to pay Aaron Schobel a $2 Million roster bonus but it has not been paid yet and that is fine with Schobel. He told AP that he has yet to decide whether he will play this year or retire. He needs to pass a physical in order to collect the bonus and he is in no rush to do either. He recently had surgery on an elbow injury suffered last year. He said if he doesn't retire he will only play in Buffalo ruling out a possible trade. He is expected to play defensive end or outside linebacker in the new 3-4 defense.

Green To Play Right Tackle: The newest Bill addressed the media in a conference call last night after agreeing to a deal. Cornell Green says he can play both tackle positions but he is more of a right tackle and that is where he'll play for Buffalo. He will be the replacement for retiring Brad Butler. He said he is looking forward to coming to Buffalo because of the tradition of the organization. He says he loves to run block and will bring leadership and experience. He said he had a couple of other visits planned but canceled them to sign with the Bills.

Owens To Cincy? There is some news regarding some of the Bills own free agents. Terrell Owens is scheduled to visit Cincinnati today where he could be lined up opposite Chad Ochocinco. Jonathan Scott reportedly has signed with the Steelers.


Monday March 8, 2010

Bills Sign Green: The Bills have filled one of their holes at offensive tackle by signing their first free agent. They announced this evening that they have signed Cornell Green to a multi year deal. Reports say it is a three year deal worth reportedly $9 Million. Green visited with the Bills today and has 11 years experience playing tackle in the NFL with extensive starts on the right side in Oakland but he also has experience at left tackle.

Kelsay Set To Return: Adam Kaplan reports for Fox Sports that Chris Kelsay has received a $500,000 roster bonus from the Bills. That would virtually ensure that he will be on the team this year. Kelsay would move to outside linebacker in the Bills new 3-4 defense.

Green In Town: The Bills have confirmed that 12 year veteran offensive tackle Cornell Green will is at One Bills Drive today for a free agent visit. He played the last three years in Oakland and started 38 games mostly at right tackle. He had five career starts total in Tampa Bay, Denver, and with the Jets before going to Oakland.

Porter Visit? Adam Schefter reports for ESPN that the Bills are indeed interested in free agent LB Joey Porter. He is a perfect fit at outside linebacker for a 3-4 defense and defensive coordinator George Edwards knows him from their time in Miami when Edwards coached the inside backers. Porter would cost a lot of money and he prefers to play on the West Coast to be closer to his family. It is unclear if Porter will even schedule a visit to Buffalo.

Tebow Workout: The Bills are apparently interested to see if Tim Tebow can perform as a quarterback on the NFL level. The Bills and Seahawks have lined up private workouts with Tebow. He will have a pro day workout for all scouts on March 17th but the Bills will meet with him privately some time after that.
