The Buffalo Bills continue to line up visits with free agents.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Cato June and Chicago Bears running back Kevin Jones will be dropping by One Bills Drive.

June is an intriguing possibility for the Bills. He's an undersized linebacker (6-foot, 227 pounds) at a time when the NFL is trending toward 3-4 schemes.

But the Bills still run a 4-3 defense and could use a weakside linebacker. June, who turned 29 in November, finished third in tackles for the Buccaneers with 104. He recorded five tackles for losses and intercepted a pass.

I wonder if Cato will have trouble playing in a stadium that has O.J. Simpson on its Wall of Fame. Sorry. I couldn't help myself. 

If you play fantasy football, then you may have had your heart broken by Jones.

The injury-prone, former Detroit Lions starter rushed for 1,133 yards as a rookie and developed into one of the league's top receiving backs -- 61 catches in 12 games three years ago -- before tearing a knee ligament toward the end of 2007.

The Lions cut him. The Chicago Bears picked him up, but used him sparingly. In 11 games, he had only 34 carries for 109 yards.
