Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix says free agent safety Jim Leonhard is visiting with the team for a second day and has taken his physical.
Nix provided no other update Friday morning on the team's interest in signing Leonhard, who spent the past three seasons with the New York Jets. Leonhard arrived at Bills training camp Thursday and watched practice from the sideline.
Leonhard's playing status is uncertain after he had surgery in December to repair a torn tendon in his right knee.
The seven-year veteran broke into the NFL with Buffalo in 2005 after making the roster as an undrafted rookie free agent. He spent three seasons with the Bills before playing one season with Baltimore.
Nix has previously said that he's interested in adding an experienced safety.

The Buffalo Bills have two capable running backs in Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller, and yet only one ball to go around.
For coach Chan Gailey, that's not a bad problem to have.
With a desire to get the most out of the two, Gailey's already cautioned Jackson and Spiller to limit their expectations regarding playing time and production because he intends for them to share...

As the Bills training camp progresses, there have been heartening signs all over the field, especially as many of the walking wounded are returning to full health.
Oft-sidelined center Eric Wood, who has been limited to individual drills during his slow, careful road to recovery, was finally taking snaps with the first team. Yes, he only took two, but it’s still a sign things...
The 2011 Bills got off to a surprise 3-0 start and beat the Patriots for the first time in 16 meetings, before reverting to the usual Bills that we know and mock. Injuries played a part in that, as did Ryan Fitzpatrick parlaying early season success into a huge contract that he followed up with a seven-game losing streak during which he mostly played like ass.

Antonio Cromartie meant no disrespect, but he meant what he said.
The New York Jets cornerback started a mini-feud earlier this week when he told ''ESPN First Take'' that he'd rank himself as the No. 2 wide receiver on the team, behind only Santonio Holmes. Chaz Schilens called it ''a slight'' and coach Rex Ryan quickly quashed any tensions during...

Not sure if this guy is on his way home from NY Jets training camp, but I think it is safe to assume he has more of an allegiance to Tim Tebow than anyone else. Note the stick alongside the “TEBOWIN” license plate, just in case anyone was confused about what it said. H/T Deadspin

Add President Obama to the list of people who question the move made by the New York Jets to acquire quarterback Tim Tebow from the Denver Broncos this past offseason. Even he knows that adding a less than average quarterback to a team which already includes a less than stellar quarterback is going to add much unnecessary controversy to a team who is not lacking any as it is already...
What is it about Tim Tebow that entrances the sporting world? Was it his clutch performances last season in Denver? Does the idea of an avidly religious athlete bring a breath of fresh air? We may not have a straight answer, but let’s face the facts: sports journalists can’t get enough. Almost every day on SportsCenter, SportsNation or ESPN First Take, Tebow is a top story....
