Buffalo Bills Sign Kirk Morrison To One-Year Deal

Multiple outlets are reporting that the Buffalo Bills have signed free agent inside linebacker Kirk Morrison to a one-year deal. Jeremy White of WGR 550 had the report first, from what we've seen.

Morrison, 29, is a six-year veteran that spent his first five seasons with the Oakland Raiders before playing last year for the Jacksonville Jaguars. (Ironically, he was replaced as a Jaguar by one Paul Posluszny.) A consistently good run defender, Morrison is not a stat machine, but is a steady player; in his six seasons, he's accumulated 723 tackles, five sacks and seven interceptions.

It's unclear precisely what the 6'2", 240-pound Morrison's role will be in George Edwards' defensive scheme. Nick Barnett is entrenched as the team's every-down inside linebacker, but it's possible that Morrison could quickly leap ahead of veterans Andra Davis and Reggie Torbor (who is currently injured) on the depth chart. This also doesn't sound good for sixth-round rookie Chris White, who is also dealing with an injury. We'll know more about Morrison's role soon, but in our view, this is a more significant signing than the Davis and Torbor signings were a year ago.
