Bills Showing Interest In Bob Sanders, O.J. Atogwe

Poised to lose starting strong safety Donte Whitner once free agency begins, the Buffalo Bills are already looking at available options. Per two separate reports, the Bills have shown interest in former Colts safety Bob Sanders, as well as recent Rams cut O.J. Atogwe.

We'll start with Sanders: Matt Bowen of the National Football Post reports that the Bills have interest in the seven-year veteran, then promptly puts them atop his short list of possible landing spots for Sanders. Once considered one of the game's elite safeties, Sanders has appeared in just nine games over the past three years, which makes Shawne Merriman (18 games in three years) look positively healthy. In Buffalo, Sanders would join outside linebackers coach Bob Sanders, which has absolutely no bearing on the actual situation other than being awesome. Sanders will visit first with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As for Atogwe, it's Howard Balzer reporting that the Bills have shown interest (via PFT). Though his skill set is starkly different from Sanders', Atogwe has developed into one of the more underrated defensive backs in the game, snaring 22 interceptions through six seasons. Atogwe has already scheduled a free agent's obligatory visit with the Washington Redskins (which will happen Monday), and is also open to returning to the Rams.
