After hosting two free agents on a visit last week, the Buffalo Bills hosted two more on Monday afternoon. The team officially announced that linebacker Zach Brown and cornerback Corey White were at team facilities in Orchard Park.
Brown is the second inside linebacker to make a visit in as many weeks, after Bruce Carter made an official visit late last week. Carter is reportedly expected to sign with the New York Jets.
Brown, 26, spent all four of his NFL seasons as a member of the Tennessee Titans, having started for them in the first two years of his career. In 2014, Brown suffered a pectoral injury that ended his season after just the first game. Last season, Brown lost his job after the first four weeks of the season and shifted into a reserve role.
Through his career, Brown has accrued 261 tackles, 10 sacks, and six interceptions, and has started a total of 33 games.
White, 25, has spent time with the New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys, and most recently, the Arizona Cardinals. He was with the Saints for the first three years of his career, having started 19 games for them. He started 2015 with the Cowboys, was released, and then picked up the Cardinals. White has a total of four interceptions.
Joe B.'s Take
The most intriguing name between the two most recent free agent visitors is Zach Brown, mostly because he could push to start if signed by the team. Brown has always been known as an incredibly athletic linebacker, and would slot in -- at the very least -- as competition to be the weakside inside linebacker next to Preston Brown.
Brown's experience in the 3-4 helps his cause as a depth signing, and he'll also have to try to make the team as an asset on special teams as well. Signing Brown would not stop the Bills from drafting a linebacker, but it might make the need for one early in the 2016 NFL Draft a little bit lesser.
As for White, he would be a depth player at cornerback, and someone that can fill in if one of Stephon Gilmore or Ronald Darby gets injured. He'd be battling with Javier Arenas and Mario Butler to be the main backup outside cornerback, but would likely have to make the team based on his abilities on special teams as well.
