cornerback Will James visited with the Bills
Last season, James lost his nickelback role in Philadelphia
, but he could compete for playing time in the Bills secondary. The Bills secondary last season ranked 29th overall. So the addition of James could boost the Bills poor secondary.
James was drafted in 2001 in the third Round and was the 16th pick in that round. He played his college ball at Western Illinois. James played with Giants
from 2001 to 2005, and played with the Eagles from 2006 until last season.
Another free agent the Bills are going to meet with is Titans
outstanding special teamer and backup strong safety Donnie Nickey. Nickey was drafted in 2003 by the Titans in the fifth round and he was the 154th pick overall. Nickey played his college ball at Ohio State.
During Nickey's days at high school he was selected as an All-Ohio running back and safety. He also was selected as an co-captain with Mike Doss on the 2002 NCAA National Championship team. Nickey is known as an outstanding special teamer for the Titans, and as mentioned he can play the safety position as well.
Another player that the Bills have drawn interest in is wide receiver Rashied Davis. Davis formerly played for the AFL San Jose Sabercats from 2002-2005 and the Chicago Bears
from 2005 until last season. Davis is an undrafted wide receiver out of San Jose State.
Any of these players would bring some sort of an improvement to their positions for the Bills. James could fill the void at nickelback that was formerly held by recently released Kiwaki Thomas. Nickey would bring experience to the safety position for the Bills, and can excell on an already great special teams.
And last but not least, Davis could help improve the wide reciever positon for the Bills, with the Bills looking for an experienced player at the wide reciever spot.
Look for the Bills to continue to be active in the free agent market, and to help improve and team that looks to do good things in the upcoming season.
