DT Kennedy re-ups with Vikings

New, comments

To date, the Buffalo Bills have brought three free agents through the doors of One Bills Drive on official visits with the team. Of those three players, just one has signed with Buffalo. The other two have found greener pastures elsewhere.

The latest to find employment elsewhere is defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy, who visited with the Bills on Thursday and Friday of this week. He left Orchard Park on Friday afternoon without a deal, and roughly 24 hours later, he's re-signed with the Minnesota Vikings, the team for which he has played the past two seasons. Kennedy gets a two-year, $6 million deal to remain the chief understudy to Pat Williams and Kevin Williams.

Former Chiefs guard Wade Smith is the other free agent to take a deal elsewhere, signing a four-year, $12 million deal with the Houston Texans after visiting the Bills on the opening day of free agency.

Over a full week into free agency, Buffalo's lone signing remains new starting right tackle Cornell Green. The Bills signed Green to a three-year, $9 million deal on Monday.
