The Bills didn’t just meet with Anquan Boldin on Monday. The Bills also spent the day looking at defensive linemen Roy Miller, Leger Douzable, and Devon Still, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter).
Still, 28, only played 25 defensive snaps for the Texans in 2016 before going down with a Lisfranc injury which required surgery. A former second-round pick, the defensive tackle has never lived up to his draft billing, as he’s never started a game during his career due to health issues and lack of effectiveness. Of course, Still has dealt with plenty in his off-field life, as his daughter Leah battled cancer until announcing in 2015 she was cancer-free.
Miller recently worked out for the rival Dolphins, but left Miami without a deal. Like Still, he also was slowed by injuries in 2016 and he’s also looking to prove to teams that he’s back to 100% health. In 2015, he had 4.0 sacks and 40 total tackles for the Jaguars. From 2013 through 2016, he appeared in 50 games at defensive tackle for Jacksonville. He started in all but one of those games.
Douzable’s biggest champion, Rex Ryan, is no longer in Buffalo, but the new regime still wants to see what he has to offer. The 31-year-old defensive lineman appeared in every game for the Bills last season and made five starts. He had 43 total tackles and 1.5 sacks.
