Free Agent S Bob Sanders Visiting Buffalo On Tuesday

New, comments

Free agent safety Bob Sanders, released by the Indianapolis Colts after three injury-plagued seasons last week, will reportedly make a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday. The seven-year veteran wrapped up his first free agent visit, with the Jacksonville Jaguars, on Monday.

Matt Bowen of the National Football Post first reported on Buffalo's interest in Sanders on Tuesday. Bowen lists Buffalo atop his list of five potential landing spots for Sanders; Jacksonville did not make the cut.

Clearly, durability is Sanders' biggest issue, as he has played in just nine games over the past three seasons. By comparison, oft-injured Bills outside linebacker Shawne Merriman has double that total in the same time frame. The 2007 AP Defensive Player of the Year, as well as a two-time first-team All Pro and two-time Pro Bowler, Sanders will turn 30 this Thursday.

It's unclear how interested the Bills are in bringing Sanders into the fold, but whether or not he can pass a physical at this point in time.
