Bills visit with Justin Durant

The first waves of free agency have come to an end and teams have generally turned their focus to the draft, but there are still some veterans looking for jobs.

One is linebacker Justin Durant and his search for a team in 2017 has led him to Buffalo. Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that Durant visited with the Bills on Thursday.

Durant returned to the Cowboys in 2016 for his third season with the team in the last four years. He played for the Falcons during the 2015 season. Durant had 37 tackles and a sack in 13 appearances with Dallas last year and has played in 121 games overall over the last 10 years.

The Bills retained Lorenzo Alexander, but lost Zach Brown as a free agent this offseason. Durant could help fill that void, although he probably wouldn’t be guaranteed much more than a chance at competing for a role in any deal with the Bills.

    This would be a solid pickup by the Bills. Durant would be an above average reserve.

    Slow reacting LB. Soon to be 32 YO.
    Never seems to get TFLs.
    Career 4.5 sacks over 10 years is also telling.
    Surprised that he has made it a 10 YR career.
    My Bills are really hurting if they are looking to give this guy any significant amount of playing time.

    Love Lorenzo, but should have kept Brown and let Alexander go.

    Finding career special teamer Lorenzo Alexander and turning him into a pro bowl LB at 33 years old seems to have gotten to the bills’ heads a bit with guys like this coming in. Lightning won’t strike twice buffalo,

    So with all this LB talk with Buffalo, where does last year’s #2 pick, Reggie Ragland fit in? I keep reading about how the Bills need LB help but have heard very little about Ragland filling a void.
