Bills Among Five Teams On Kevin Burnett's List

Yesterday, reports surfaced that San Diego Chargers free agent linebacker Kevin Burnett was receiving interest from not only the Buffalo Bills, but four other teams, as well. Kevin Acee (San Diego Union-Tribunehas an update this morning on exactly which teams are pursuing Burnett.

In addition to the Chargers and Bills, the Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins and Tennessee Titans have inquired about the 28-year-old inside linebacker.

However, Acee also believes that the Chargers likely won't be serious contenders for Burnett, given that they've doled out big contracts to safety Eric Weddle and inside linebacker Takeo Spikes over the past two days. Acee does not believe San Diego can bring Burnett back unless he's willing to take significantly less than he'll be offered elsewhere.

Finally, Acee cites sources that are telling him that Burnett is looking for a contract that exceeds $5 million annually. In Buffalo, Burnett would be a replacement for the now-departed Paul Posluszny, who signed a six-year contract worth $7 million annually with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday night.
