NFL Free Agency: Day One

by Rich

Two pieces of Bills free-agent news from the guys over at Buffalo Rumblings:

Giants linebacker Kawika Mitchell is expected to sign with the Bills later today. The linebacker started all 16 games for the Giants last year, and would likely play the strong side in Buffalo, freeing up Angelo Crowell to return to his natural position at weak-side linebacker.

Also, there are reports that former Jags defensive tackle Marcus Stroud will be in town today to meet with the team. The thought of a guy like Stroud in the middle of Buffalo’s defensive line makes me happy.

UPDATE: The Bills have announced the release of DT Larry Tripplett (or so my text updates tell me).
