I don't see it with what we already have on the DL and him coming off an Achilles. But there is pepper johnson

Wow.

I'm not a big fan of signing free agents over 30...but I'd sign him in a heartbeat.

Best run stopper alive.  Pats are toast if he leaves.

He'd be great on 1st and second down ... not as much a need , but certainly a luxury

If his achilles is ok...I'd say yes.  He is a machine at eating up blockers.  Pun intended.

Probably solves the run defense issues.

Can't see any mutual interest though with the respective stages the bills and him are at.

He's a one man wrecking crew......pre injury.   I don't think we have seen post injury wilfork yet.  

Wonder if they asked him to take paycut.

And Branch!  Wow, talk about a hell of a rotation.  I can't see them being able to afford everyone, but it's a nice thought!

Always wanted him here, would have been great here last year with Pettine but don't think he fits the smaller DL that Schwartz uses.

Yeah, I know when healthy he's pretty damned great in the middle. I just wonder how having (potentially) one bum wheel will effect things at that position. I know explosion is necessary to collapse a line, or take on blockers, but maybe he can get around it (heh) with his size and weight.

Interesting prospect to say the least. :)
