Former Indianapolis Colts offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus is meeting with the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday to determine their interest in signing him, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports.
Cherilus’ visit takes place three days after the 31-year-old was released by the Colts, and as the Bills prepare to open training camp in suburban Rochester on Friday.
The Colts cut Cherilus because of concerns they had of him coming off knee surgery. Chronic knee problems and poor performance limited him to 13 starts and left him ranked as the No. 70th blocker out of 84 qualifying tackles, per Pro Football Focus.
Cherilus started 29 games for Indianapolis over the past two seasons. He spent his first five seasons as a starter with the Detroit Lions, who selected Cherilus with the 17th pick in the 2008 draft.
The Bills could definitely use the O-Line help. Cherilus would arguably serve as a better option than Seantrel Henderson or Cyrus Kouandjio for Buffalo, but only if healthy.
