The Seahawks attempted to shop Rubin prior to cutting him over the weekend, and the 31-year-old defender is attempting to secure a job with a third NFL team. This was the would-be 10th-year veteran’s first known visit since the Seahawks released him.
Rubin played for the Browns for seven seasons prior to signing two Seahawks contacts — the second of which a three-year, $12MM pact in 2016.
The Bills are pivoting back to a 4-3 scheme under Sean McDermott, and Rubin proved solid in that set in Seattle after working as a 3-4 base defender in Cleveland. Buffalo has mercurial superstar Marcell Dareus and longtime cog Kyle Williams entrenched inside but may be on the hunt for a rotational option.
Garafolo NFL.com colleague Ian Rapoport reported the Broncos as a top contender to land Rubin, but nothing’s developed on that front since.
