Sanders to visit Jets

Free agent safety Bob Sanders, who visited with the Bills last week, is reportedly visiting with the New York Jets today.

That according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Jets stand to lose a couple of their safeties. Veteran Brodney Pool and Eric Smith are set to become free agents. Sanders met with Bills defensive coordinator George Edwards last week in Buffalo. He’s also met with the Jaguars.

Buffalo’s interest sounded exploratory in nature concerning Sanders. Bills GM Buddy Nix addressed Sanders most recently on ‘Morning Bull’ on 103.3 the Edge Tuesday saying the following on both Sanders and possibly checking out O.J. Atogwe.

“What we did was we wanted to know physically what kind of shape they’re in. We’re looking to always upgrade our team. Both of those guys are good players. It’s a matter of whether they’re physically sound and fit what we’re trying to do. We bring a lot of people in and it doesn’t go any further, but I don’t want to be sitting here and a guy was available and goes somewhere else and plays three or four years and we didn’t know about him. We’re going to do our best to be prepared if there comes an opportunity to get one of those guys.”
