Bills sign LB Reggie Torbor to two-year deal

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Saturday that the Buffalo Bills had agreed to terms with free agent inside linebacker Reggie Torbor. The Bills have since confirmed the deal, which Schefter reports is for two years.

Torbor, 29, spent the last two seasons as a backup inside linebacker for the Miami Dolphins, where he accumulated 54 tackles and 1.5 sacks largely in a special teams role. Torbor's position coach during those two seasons was none other than George Edwards, now Buffalo's defensive coordinator. The 6'2", 250-pound veteran also has experience playing outside linebacker, which he did in the New York Giants' 4-3 alignment in 2007 opposite Kawika Mitchell. Torbor's signing, alongside Mitchell, gives the Bills two linebackers with Super Bowl rings.

The Bills now run four deep in veteran depth at inside linebacker; Torbor will compete with Mitchell and rookie Arthur Moats for top depth honors behind projected starters Paul Posluszny and Andra Davis. Both Torbor and Mitchell may be asked to learn an outside linebacker position, as well, as the Bills are hurting for depth at that position as well.

Upon his release from Miami, The Phinsider cited Torbor's four-year, $14 million deal, as well as their overhaul of the ILB position, as reasons Torbor was released. Torbor's best shot at making the final roster will be either proving more valuable to the team than Mitchell, or providing depth at outside linebacker.
