I question an article a little when it says he holds a record of 118 special teams tackles in a season.  Slightly overstated.  LOL.

Im thinking its a typo and meant to say "in a career" not season.

According to wikipedia: it's a franchise record for Jacksonville. As is his 30 in one season (2009). So...

The former talk show host?

I would think that this would be bad news for Chris Brown.

Seriously, for a special teams ace, he's averaged over 5 yards per carry in his career.

Small sample size I know, but still:

In his career he has 56 rushes for 292 yards and three touchdowns. He also has 12 career receptions for 132 yards.

Sign him; give him #81 and breathe new life into the plethora of T.O. jerseys people still wear at the Ralph.

Wouldn't mind MO at all.
5'10 225 ran a 4.48 40. Did a good job filling in for MJD last year. One of the best ST players in the league and a pro through and through.

If they do sign him, he's a special teamer first and foremost.  However, let's think out of the box a little here.  Freddy hasn't been able to complete a season in very recent times.  They may perceive that Spiller can't carry the load, nor Choice share it with him if he had to step in for 6 games of the season.  He might represent a good multi-purpose player.  Definitely can help on special teams thought none the less.

low center of gravity and fast could be interesting, those bowling ball types can be hard to tackle.

Maybe more than a visit (unless he packed really, really light)...

RB/FB M. Owens can run the football.  He's a heck of a lot more than just a ST player or a blocking FB.

I paid a lot of attention to him last year because I had picked him up in my FFL.  He would be a very nice addition to the team and might be the short yardage running back that the Bills really need.

If you recall, the one NE game last year when Spiller tried to score from the one yd line and got absolutely crushed by Wilfork then you understand what I mean when I say that the Bills could really use a big back for short yardage/goal line situations.

If he is signed and sticks Choice is probably out of a job, tho MO is a fullback and Choice has been pretty decent as a reserve running back.
