Kevin Burnett's Agent Reports Bills Have Interest In Client

The agent for free agent linebacker Kevin Burnett tells Bills Digest associate editor Mark Ludwiczak that the Buffalo Bills have expressed interest in signing his client.

Ludwiczak is quick to caution that the interest, for the moment, appears to be nascent, and that the two sides are not expected to talk salary figures until later today, or perhaps even tomorrow. Four other teams are reportedly interested in Burnett, a 28-year-old veteran who has spent the last two seasons with the San Diego Chargers. (No, he did not cross paths with Buddy Nix while there.)

The Bills, of course, are probably in the market for an inside linebacker now that their top-priority free agent, Paul Posluszny, has agreed to a massive six-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 6'3", 240-pound Burnett would instantly be Buffalo's best athlete inside, and had a very good 2010 season, finishing with 95 tackles, six sacks and two interceptions.

Burnett is the fourth free agent to be linked to the Bills today, joining offensive tackles Willie Colon and Tyson Clabo, as well as pass rusher Jason Babin.
