Jasper Brinkley visiting with Bills

The Bills hosted Jameel McClain for a visit on Wednesday and he’s not the only recently released linebacker they have their eye on ahead of the start of free agency.

Jasper Brinkley is going to visit with the team on Thursday, his first known visit since getting released by the Cardinals at the end of last week. Brinkley spent one year in Arizona, playing mostly as a backup once Daryl Washington returned from suspension.

He was a starter in the middle of the Vikings defense in 2012, albeit one who mostly played on the first two downs because he’s better against the run than the pass.  Brinkley entered the NFL as a fifth-round pick in Minnesota in 2009.

Kiko Alonso had an outstanding rookie season as an inside linebacker for the Bills in 2013, but Arthur Moats is a free agent and Brinkley would give them another option to mix in alongside him.

    He is solid on special teams and will definitely stop the run… just don’t let him cover a rb… ever

    Has not much to do with Moats.

    They wanna move Kiko outside where his skill would be better used…and they need a run stuffer in the middle.

    I remember when he was a Viking. Those were dark times indeed.
