Tyson Clabo Confirms He's Talking With The Bills

On Wednesday, our panda watch of the day pertained to free agent cornerback Drayton Florence, for whom the Buffalo Bills were in a bidding war for on Tuesday night. Buffalo won that war, re-signing Florence to a three-year, $15 million deal on Wednesday.

Wednesday night, the Bills were reportedly in another bidding war - this time for free agent offensive tackle Tyson Clabo. The Bills are duking it out with the Atlanta Falcons for Clabo's services, and the Pro Bowl right tackle confirmed last night that he's been talking to the Bills.

"It's a possibility," Clabo told D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "But nobody has agreed to terms or anything."

Buffalo's interest in Clabo was first reported Wednesday afternoon by NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, who also listed the Seattle Seahawks as suitors. Seattle, however, has since signed Robert Gallery, and may be out of the running.

Clabo is arguably the best free agent offensive lineman available this season, and will command a very pretty penny. It's very possible that he's merely using the Bills as leverage to milk as much money out of the Falcons as possible, as they'd like him back quite badly. Florence used the Jets to get a great deal from Buffalo in much the same manner. Still, there are worse places for the Bills to be than in the running for an excellent starting right tackle.
