Hall, James Would Add Depth: The two free agents the Bills brought in for a visit yesterday are not huge names (they aren't any on the market anymore). They would fill depth needs on defense however as James (formerly Will Peterson) would add to a weak secondary corps. The problem is he's an outside guy and they need a nickel corner. James Hall would fill the spot used by Anthony Hargrove last year. He would be part of the 2nd wave of defensive ends and be used to try and get the team's sack numbers up. It was the first vist for both players and they both said they have other visits in the works. They both left town without a contract. Depth Chart.

James Visits: As we reported yesterday, Eagles free agent cornerback William James had a visit scheduled to Buffalo. The Bills confirmed he was the 2nd visitor today along with DE James Hall. James was excited for the opportunity to visit Buffalo. The Bills have a need for depth at the corner position after losing Jason Webster in free agency and releasing Kiwaukee Thomas and Dematrius Butler.
Hall In For Visit: The Bills have confirmed that free agent DE James Hall is in town today for a visit. The eight year veteran was released by the Rams earlier this month and would probably be used as a siutational pass rusher. He has had 7½ sacks the past two seasons which were marred by injuries.
Stamer Visits Tennessee: Free agent LB Josh Stamer took a visit to Tennessee yesterday. Stamer spoke to a newspaper earlier in the offseason and indicated it is time for him to move on after five years in Buffalo.

Bills Sign Anderson: The Bills made a move to bolster their tight end corps today. They signed free agent Courtney Anderson to an undisclosed deal. Anderson visited last week and had no other visits planned as he said he wanted to end up in Buffalo which he considered a great organization. He fills the need of a tall tight end receiving threat. The 6'6" 270 pounder is among the tallest tight ends in the league. He played wide receiver his first two years in college. He was a 7th round pick of the Raiders in 2004 and had his two best years in 2005 and 2006 as he combined for 49 catches in those two seasons. His career took a downturn after that as he played in two games with Detroit and two games with Atlanta last season. Depth Chart.
