Jim Leonhard Departs Buffalo, To Visit Denver Broncos

Free agent safety Jim Leonhard spent two days visiting with the Buffalo Bills - a stretch that included a physical and a workout. The trip did not, however, include a contract, and Leonhard has left Buffalo for another free agent visit with the Denver Broncos, per Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.

Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reported the following after Leonhard's departure: "... indications are that Leonhard's surgically repaired knee is not yet ready for a return to the field in a training camp practice setting... Bills GM Buddy Nix also told BuffaloBills.com that Leonhard wants to explore all his options."

The Bills are seeking a fourth reliable safety to stash on the roster behind their top trio of Jairus Byrd, George Wilson and Da'Norris Searcy. For now, Leonhard will remain on their radar, and if he doesn't sign elsewhere, the two sides may re-visit the situation when Leonhard is healthier. Until then, the Bills will apparently continue their search for a fourth safety via other avenues.
