LB Peterson visits with Bills

There would be nothing wrong with adding a proven veteran to Buffalo's linebacking corps, and the Bills had another one in for a visit Friday as free agent Mike Peterson was touring the facilities and meeting the coaches at One Bills Drive.

Peterson (6'1" 238) is a 10-year veteran who played his last six seasons in Jacksonville where he played middle linebacker and served as defensive captain. He did have a falling out with Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio, who removed him from the starting lineup for six games last season.

The Jaguars' leading tackler in three of his six seasons in Jacksonville, Peterson also led the Colts in tackles one season during his first four years in Indianapolis.

While with the Colts Peterson played outside linebacker, so it will be interesting to see were the Bills view the veteran as a possible fit.

Bills defensive coordinator Perry Fewell did admit at the NFL Combine that moving middle linebacker Paul Posluszny outside is a possible option.

Peterson turns 33 in June.  

Buffalo also hosted Tampa free agent Cato June for a visit on Wednesday this week.
