Bills interested in Taylor

Buffalo and New England in battle for ex-Jaguar....

Fred Taylor is expected to visit both Buffalo and New England this week.

The long-time Jacksonville Jaguars running back was released in a salary cap move last week and now it appears the Bills are interested. Of course, this comes in lieu of Marshawn Lynch's arrest in California.

Taylor, 33, has 11,271 career yards and has averaged 4.6 yards in his career. Head coach Dick Jauron was on the Jaguars staff when they drafted Taylor in the 1998 first round. Ironically, Jacksonville took Taylor with the pick acquired in the infamous Rob Johnson trade.

Lynch was charged with three misdemeanors for gun possession Thursday and is expected to be punished by the NFL. His backup Fred Jackson is also a free agent looking for a multi-year contract --- thus Buffalo's interest in Taylor.

Last year for Jacksonville, Taylor rushed for 556 yards and a touchdown while missing the team's final three games.
