Report: LB Andra Davis to visit Buffalo

WGR 550 is reporting this morning that the Buffalo Bills are hosting Denver Broncos free agent linebacker Andra Davis today (Monday) and tomorrow.

The 31-year-old Davis was released on Thursday, and the Bills are apparently moving quickly to sign the long-time 3-4 inside linebacker. He was drafted by Cleveland in the fifth round in 2002, playing seven seasons there. He only spent one season in Denver, starting 13 games in 2009.

Davis garnered 90 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 2009, but according to the Broncos SB Nation blog, Mile High Report, Davis "seemed to fade a bit" down the stretch, speculating his age is becoming a factor. In the Bills' system, Davis could add valuable experience to a front seven sorely lacking in that area with the transition to the 3-4 defense. Davis' role on the Bills would most likely be as the first reserve off the bench behind both Paul Posluszny and Kawika Mitchell in the middle of the Bills defense. As MHR put it in January:

Davis is a wonderful influence in the locker room and a talented backup, but it's my own feeling that we need to upgrade this position. He is a leader in the locker room. He helps the younger players to become the kind of NFL players that we need: professional, hardworking, always in the weight room or film room, and he helps them with technique as well. Andra Davis is like an additional coach, whether out on the field or in the locker room.

Davis is the fourth free agent through the doors at One Bills Drive. The latest visitor, defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy, re-signed with Minnesota, while guard Wade Smith came to town as well, but ultimately signed in Houston. The only person to sign on with the Bills is offensive tackle Cornell Green, who signed last week.
