Bills Free Agent Target Kevin Burnett Signs With Dolphins

After WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia confirmed (with a source) the Buffalo Bills' interest in free agent inside linebacker Kevin Burnett earlier today, it appears that Burnett has already found a new home. Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald reports that Burnett has agreed to a four-year contract with the Miami Dolphins.

Buffalo had been one of four teams linked to Burnett over the past couple of days. The former San Diego Chargers player was viewed as a potential three-down replacement for the departed Paul Posluszny in Buffalo's 3-4 defense, but instead, Burnett will replace the just-released Channing Crowder inside for the Dolphins.

Buffalo's had bad luck, to put it lightly, this free agent signing period. They've now not only lost out on Posluszny, their top priority entering free agency, but also missed the boat on players such as Burnett, Tyson Clabo and Willie Colon. The team is so thin at inside linebacker that they appear set to move Arthur Moats to the position - and Moats is arguably the team's best pass rusher.
