Free agent safety Jim Leonhard may finally be close to finding a new team. Which was also his first team.
Leonhard attended practice at the Bills’ training camp today, and Bills G.M. Buddy Nix said Leonhard could be the right fit for a position where the team still needs to add depth.
“We’re still looking for a fourth safety,” Nix told Buffalobills.com.
Leonhard, who suffered a season-ending tear to his patellar tendon in Week 14 of last season, was wearing a compression sleeve on his right leg as he watched the Bills’ practice. But Leonhard says his knee is healthy and he’s ready to go.
The Bills signed Leonhard as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin in 2005, and he played three years in Buffalo before leaving for the Ravens as a free agent. After one season in Baltimore, he has played the last three years with the Jets.
