Bills work out free agent FB and CB

The Bills had two players visit today as the team looks for a replacement for Antoine Winfield and possibly Sam Gash.

Free agent fullback Terrelle Smith and cornerback David Macklin visited the Bills today.

Smith, was originally a fourth round pick of the 2000 draft by the New Orleans Saints. He's been the team's primary blocking back to help spring Deuce McCallister for over 1300 yards the past two seasons. Prior to that he also helped Ricky Williams gain back to back seasons of at least 1000 yards. At 6-0 246 he has plenty of size to serve as the Bills blocking full back to replace an aging Sam Gash who is also a free agent.

Macklin, collected 36 tackles and one interception for the Colts in 2003. Indianapolis selected Macklin in the third round of the 2000 draft and he was a full time starter for the team in 2001 and 2002. In 2003 he lost his starting job to Nick Harper. The 5-9 196 lber is similiar sized but not near as skilled as Antoine Winfield who the Bills lost in free agency when he signed with the Minnesota Vikings last week. Athough Macklin does have one more career interception then Winfield does despite playing in only four seasosn whereas Winfield has played in five NFL seasons.
