Packers eyeing Preston

Posted by Chris Brown on March 24, 2009 – 1:35 pm

The Green Bay Packers met with Bills FA center Duke Preston last week. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy gave his thoughts on the offensive lineman while at the league meetings in California.

“I had a chance to meet him,” McCarthy told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “I was very impressed with Duke . . . very bright. I like the way he presented himself. I found it to be a very positive visit. As far as where we’re at with the negotiation, I don’t have anything for you.”

Preston has also visited Oakland and Buffalo remains in the mix, but at this point the Bills seem to have just a backup role for him with Hangartner now on board. If he has a chance to start elsewhere he’d likely that that offer first.
