Sam Young working out for Bills

Tackle LaAdrian Waddle tore his quad during Sunday’s practice and the Bills have already lined up a visit with a player who could help restore their offensive line depth in the wake of Waddle’s injury.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that tackle Sam Young is working out for the team on Monday.

If Young lands a job, it will be his second tour of duty with the Bills. He was claimed off of waivers by Buffalo in September 2011 and played for the team until being waived in October 2013. He played in 20 games and made four starts during that stint.

Young went on to play for the Jaguars and Dolphins since leaving the Bills. Young also visited with the Jets late last month.

  1. Sorry to hear about Waddle. He did a really good job for the Pats in spot duty the previous two years, and I am sure he would have done fine with the Bills. Good swing tackle to have on hand in a pinch, hate to see him or anyone go down like that.

    He took way less in NE to win rings. He did that. Yes, he was the league’s best swing Tackle but wanted to play.

    He could have started at RT for 50% of the league the last 2 years.

  3. “He could have started at RT for 50% of the league the last 2 years.”

    ========================================

    Seriously?? He couldn’t even break the starting lineup with the Dolphins when he was there, and their O-line is hot garbage.

  4. And the offensive lineman keep dropping for the Bills, as many as they picked up in the offseason we might be getting thin there again. Hopefully the Bills preseason bleeding stops soon.

  5. Tough break—-he had injuries early in his stint with the Pats as well, but later became a very reliable and capable performer. Yo LaAdrian, get well soon.

  6. This is the first O line injury with any real time limit to it. The others are of the “nagging” variety, and they will all be back in a week. They get a closer look at guys who otherwise wouldn’t get the exposure they need to make a positive impression. I like Waddle, and he will go on IR and be around later. I figure about 2 months for a torn quad. That’s week 5 if he’s a player tagged for return. Kroft is the only other long term injury, and he’s over half way to return. Two weeks ahead of schedule. BTW, Morse didn’t have a concussion. He had Concussion like symptoms. It’s precautionary. I have some of those symptoms right now. I have a headache. That’s a concussion symptom.
