Bills host LB Zach Brown, CB Corey White

Posted Apr 4, 2016

Buffalo hosted a pair of free agents at positions in need of reinforcements Monday.

The steady diet of free agent visits at One Bills Drive continued on Monday as Buffalo welcomed a pair of defensive players to the team facility.

The Bills hosted free agent LB Zach Brown and free agent CB Corey White as the two defensive players met with members of the team’s coaching staff.

Brown, 26, has spent his entire career with the Tennessee Titans, who made him a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft. An inside linebacker by trade, Brown was productive in each of his first two seasons as a starter posting 90-plus tackles.

A torn pectoral muscle cost him almost all of the 2014 season. Brown returned in 2015 and was a spot starter for the Titans contributing 77 tackles, three pass breakups and a pair of interceptions.

Brown still has quality range as an inside linebacker possessing the athleticism to drop and cover. Buffalo is in the market for linebacker help after the free agent departure of Nigel Bradham.

White, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2012. The cornerback split last season between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals appearing in a combined 10 games with limited time on defense.

His most successful season came in 2014 when he started nine games and put up 53 tackles, six pass breakups and a pair of interceptions. 

The Bills are in need of reinforcements at cornerback after both Ron Brooks and Leodis McKelvin signed with Philadelphia this offseason.

At 6-1 and 205 pounds, White is the long-limbed type of corner that Bills GM Doug Whaley covets for his defensive roster.
