Bills, O.J. Atogwe Could Meet After 2011 NFL Combine

On Monday, reports emerged that the Buffalo Bills were interested in two recently-released free agent safeties: Bob Sanders (Indianapolis) and O.J. Atogwe (St. Louis). Sanders visited Buffalo on Tuesday, has also visited with Jacksonville, and may make more visits next week. We hadn't heard anything about Atogwe since the initial report, but ESPN's Tim Graham addressed that issue this morning.

According to Graham, league sources confirm that the Bills are still interested in Atogwe, and that the two parties could get together for a visit next week.

Which, of course, makes sense. Bills head coach Chan Gailey said Thursday that he was not present for Sanders' Tuesday evening visit with defensive coordinator George Edwards, likely because he was busy preparing for the 2011 NFL Combine. That event is all-consuming for all 32 NFL teams through this weekend, and Gailey - along with GM Buddy Nix - won't be back in Buffalo until next Tuesday at the earliest.

In any case, the Bills - with Donte Whitner and George Wilson looking at free agency - aren't done kicking the tires of free agent safeties just yet.
