Free agent linebacker Jamari Lattimore visited the Buffalo Bills back on May 19th but left without a deal. Today, the Bills agreed to terms with the linebacker. According to BuffaloBills.com, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Most recently, Lattimore played with the New York Jets in 2015 and appeared in 15 games. The linebacker recorded 13 total tackles last season in New York and played mostly on special teams. Before joining the Jets in 2015, Lattimore spent four seasons with the Green Bay Packers. Between 2013-2014, Lattimore registered nine starts with the Packers and had 74 total tackles, two sacks, two passes defensed, one interception, and one forced fumble.
Lattimore gives the Bills depth at the linebacker position, but he was most likely signed for his strong play on special teams. To win a spot on Buffalo's 53-man roster, Lattimore will have to be outstanding on special teams at training camp and throughout the preseason.null
