Levi Jones still looking

Posted by Chris Brown on July 20, 2009 – 3:03 pm

This offseason there’s been a lot of Bills’ fan interest in Bengals cast off Levi Jones. But an NFC team still appears to be his most consistent pursuer.

The Arizona Cardinals have maintained a dialogue with Jones, according to ESPN’s Len Pasquarelli. The Cardinals have been mildly “interested” since April, when Jones stated he would like to play for Arizona.

The interest on Jones’ part makes sense. He played his college ball at Arizona State. But you have to believe if he was willing to play for the veteran minimum, or was willing to accept a reserve role if he was unable to win a starting job he would have signed by now.

All indications are his asking price is still too high and that he wants a starting gig. What teams are worried about are his knee problems the past three seasons which has made his availability on Sundays anything but consistent.

Don’t expect the Bills to consider him as an option unless there’s a major injury at the tackle position at camp, or if their original plans at tackle are not panning out the way they hope.
