Kawika and Poz could have competition

If free agent visitor Andra Davis ends up getting something done with the Bills, inside linebackers Paul Posluszny and Kawika Mitchell could have some veteran competition.

Davis has been an inside LB for all of his time in a 3-4 scheme, mostly on the strong side. He would be some of the stiffest competition those two incumbent backers would face since they’ve been in Buffalo. Of course Davis knows competing with those two linebackers would not be an easy task either.

“If it worked out I’d just come here and compete,” he said. “They’ve got some good backers here already. I bring experience and leadership and I would just come here and compete.”

The coaching staff has intimate working knowledge of Davis’ game, since defensive coordinator George Edwards was his linebackers coach in Cleveland in 2004.

If he in fact comes to an agreement with the Bills it would be one of the more interesting training camp competitions, but this is what GM Buddy Nix wanted to develop on the roster right away. His motto of competition makes everyone better is evident with this free agent visit. And what they also create is dependable depth, something the LB position has lacked the past few years.
