La Canfora: Bills Showing Interest In Falcons OT Tyson Clabo

New, comments

Piling onto a blurb from Adam Caplan that the Buffalo Bills could be interested in free agent offensive tackle Willie Colon comes this: NFL.com's Jason La Canfora reports that the Bills are now also showing interest in Tyson Clabo.

Clabo, who will turn 30 in October, has been the Atlanta Falcons' starting right tackle for the last four seasons, and has made 69 starts for the Falcons in that time frame. The former undrafted free agent has long been considered one of the hotter commodities on the open market along the offensive line, and that's evident in the fact that Clabo is getting interest not just from the Falcons and Bills, but also from the Seattle Seahawks.

However, the long-held assumption that Clabo's days in Atlanta are numbered could be faulty. In fact, Yahoo!'s Jason Cole reported just this morning that Clabo is close to re-signing in Atlanta.

Still, we've now heard of the Bills sniffing around two starting-caliber right tackles within the past hour. Perhaps Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey aren't as sold on Erik Pears and Mansfield Wrotto as they say they are.
