Bills To Meet With Eli Ankou

The Bills are set to meet with defensive tackle Eli Ankou, according to Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 (Twitter link). Ankou, who stands at 6’3” and weighs 327 pounds, could provide depth and run-stuffing help in Buffalo.

Ankou, who won’t turn 27 until next month, has already spent time with five different NFL teams. His last stop was with the Cowboys, after the Texans shipped him mid-season in exchange for a seventh-round pick. In 2020 alone, Ankou spent time with three different teams, going from the Colts to the Texans to the Cowboys.

Ankou notched five tackles in seven games for Dallas last year. For the most part, the former undrafted free agent out of UCLA has served as a special teams player, though he did notch 1.5 sacks as a rookie in Jacksonville.

The Bills already boast a solid interior, headlined by Ed Oliver and Vernon Butler plus Harrison Phillips and Star Lotulelei.
