Bills Meet With LB Gerald Hodges

Before the month is out, Gerald Hodges just might visit every team in the AFC. Today, the linebacker is meeting with the Bills, as Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. Gerald Hodges (Vertical)

Earlier this month, the 26-year-old visited the Jets, Colts, Patriots, and Jaguars. He also met with the Chiefs and Seahawks back in March. For one reason or another, the free agent is still without a deal for 2017.

The Bills’ linebacker group has already gone through some changes this year after the departures of Zach Brown and Lerentee McCray in free agency. The Bills project to start Reggie Ragland and Lorenzo Alexander at the OLB spots with Preston Brown in the middle, but the group behind them is looking a little thin. Ramon Humber and rookies Matt Milano and Tanner Vallejo figure to primarily pitch in as reserve OLBs, leaving them without a proven depth option for MLB. Hodges offers experience on the inside, so that’s presumably where he would factor in.

Hodges recorded 80 total tackles, three sacks, and two picks in 15 games (12 starts) with San Francisco last year.
