On Tuesday night, the Buffalo Bills announced that free agent defensive end Mark Anderson would be touring One Bills Drive on Wednesday on an official free agent visit. The former Houston Texans teammate of Mario Williams also met with Bills officials on Tuesday night.
The Bills are the latest in a series of five teams to express interest in Anderson's services. Just yesterday, Anderson was on a free agent visit with the Baltimore Ravens. He spent some time with the Miami Dolphins last Friday, and the Jacksonville Jaguars have expressed interest. Anderson's team last season, the New England Patriots, would also like him back.
Anderson was also a target of the Tennessee Titans, but after signing Kamerion Wimbley to a five-year, $35 million deal, they're thought to be out of the market. Of course, we might have thought the same thing about the Bills after giving Williams $100 million - half of it guaranteed - but that is clearly not the case.
It'll be interesting to see whether the amount of interest in Anderson drives him out of Buffalo's price range, but there's no question that the idea of bookending Anderson with Williams is highly intriguing.
