More interest in ex-Titans

If the Bills sign Titans free agent defensive tackle Jason Fisk, that would be a good sign that Buffalo is intent on fixing a defensive middle that had its share of problems stuffing the up-the-gut run last season. Fans only have to review tape of the season finale to see how cruddy Buffalo was at taking away Lamar Smith's middle runs. [Incidentally, Smith ran for 158 yards.]

Now it's obvious that Leif Larsen's not the answer at strongside tackle. Tyrone Robertson may not be the answer either, though he shows more promise than Larsen.

At this juncture, Fisk may be the best solution.

The 6'3" 295-pounder is a seven-year veteran whose game revolves around shutting down the run. He's in better shape than Ted Washington, but much like Washington, he's there to maintain and occupy space and wrap up and tackle when things come near. Interestingly, Fisk played right tackle for the Titans, which is Pat Williams' position.

The Bills still think 6'2", 310-pound Williams can be the up-the-field pass rushing tackle that he's shown to be in the past. He just needs more help in the middle.

If Buffalo is looking for another pass-rushing defensive tackle, they could look at Tennessee's Josh Evans. An unrestricted free agent also, the 6'2", 275-pound Evans can move. He served a one-year drug suspension in 2000 in which he used the time to coach high school football in Florida.
