Bills free agent center Duke Preston is now a Green Bay Packer. After making free agent visits with the Raiders and Packers, Preston decided to play in the NFC North. That according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The Packers were looking to bulk up a bit in the pivot and add some athleticism according to Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy.
“He’s got a nice frame,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said earlier this week. “He’s more of an athlete. We see him as an athletic frame. Once again, he’s young, too. He has a lot of football in front of him.”
Buffalo is not expected to re-sign Melvin Fowler or Jason Whittle so the Bills in addition to Geoff Hangartner will presumably have a new backup center as well. Drafting an interior linemen is quickly becoming a must even if it is for depth purposes.
