The Bills addressed their defensive depth on Monday’s visit

Anquan Boldin wasn’t the only outsider to visit One Bills Drive on Monday. Per a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bills also invited a trio of defensive linemen to their facilities: Devon Still, Leger Douzable, and Roy Miller.

Douzable is the most familiar name to Bills fans. He spent the 2016 season with the team, playing 44.9 percent of snaps on the defense. The 6’4” 284 pound DE/DT tweener had 1.5 sacks and a career-high 43 tackles, starting five games during that season.

The 6’5” 305 pound Still is known for the heart-wrenching story of his daughter Leah, who has been battling cancer since he entered the league. In three years with the Cincinnati Bengals and one year with the Houston Texans, he has yet to start a game, and he’s averaged about ten tackles per year during the spot time he’s played.

Miller, who stands six-foot-two and is listed at 318 pounds, is entering his ninth season in the league. Unlike the other two names, Miller has been a consistent starter for most of his career, with 84 games listed on his sheet. A torn Achilles tendon in October 2016 ended his season, and ultimately led to his release from the Jaguars.

The Bills already have two clear-cut starters in Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus. Last year’s third round pick, Adolphus Washington, is also in the mix, though he has a misdemeanor concealed weapons charge hanging over his head at the moment. Jerel Worthy, who looked good in spot duty last year, nose tackle Deandre Coleman, and undrafted rookie Nigel Williams round out the current group.
