Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Mark Nzeocha had a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, per Field Yates of ESPN.com.

Nzeocha has spent the last two seasons with the 49ers as mostly a key special teams player. He played in all 16 games last season and made three starts. He recorded 22 tackles with a sack and a forced fumble, all career-highs.

Nzeocha played more special teams snaps than any player on the 49ers in 2018. He was on the field for 354 of 463 special teams snaps, which is 76.5 percent of all snaps. He would pair with Deon Lacey, Lafayette Pitts and Siran Neal as the most utilized special teams pieces for the Bills should he sign with the team.

Neocha came to the 49ers in 2017 after spending his first two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. He’s appeared in 31 career games.

  1. This is where the Bills can excel in FA. They can have an elite ST unit and promise perennial ST players a chance at regular snap opportunities. Good value with possible great upside, instead of having to overpay the likes of AB, Mr. Big Chest to ruin their team and salary cap.

  2. BTW, every over paid free agent that went to Buffalo seemed to have a great experience. Maybe these hotshots should rethink where they play. The money appears to be the same, just not the glitz. Maybe the glitz is the problem.

  3. The jills are experts at ruining their own salary cap. In case you didn’t notice the jills just got out of salary cap hell this season. I predict it will be another 2 years before they find themselves in the same salary cap situation.

    As of today, Buffalo has an estimated 86 million in 2020 cap space and 116 in 2021…buffalo would have to sign a large load of dumb contracts to blow all that space…. But if you look at the contracts Beane has handed out… A lot of them have quick outs and minimal dead money. Morse is the only large dead money contract.
