Former Jets could find home with Bills

By James Walker

Last week, the AFC East blog examined the possibility of the Buffalo Bills going after projected New York Jets castoffs. We mentioned Calvin Pace and Bart Scott as two Jets likely to be released.

On Tuesday, that projection became a reality as New York cut five players: Pace, Scott, safety Eric Smith, offensive tackle Jason Smith and tight end Josh Baker. These now former Jets are all free game for Buffalo to recruit.

With former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine now running Buffalo’s defense, expect the Bills to be on the short list for Pace, Scott and Eric Smith.

Let's take a look at each player and how they would fit with the Bills:
Buffalo has the cap room to make some veteran additions. Free agency doesn't start until March, but the Bills can get a head start due to these recently released former Jets.
