The Buffalo News reports that recently released linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa is scheduled to visit with the Buffalo Bills.
Tinoisamoa was cut by the Rams last week in a surprise move to free up salary cap space. He was scheduled to make $3.25 million in base salary and count $4.25 million against the Rams’ salary cap in 2009. Releasing him freed up $2.25 million in cap space, according to the paper.
- Tinoisamoa started at weakside linebacker for the Rams, but he has played on the strong side as well. Keith Ellison was the Bills’ strongside starter last season and is currently backed up by second-year pro Alvin Bowen and rookie Nic Harris. Bowen missed all of last season with a knee injury. Kawika Mitchell is the Bills’ starter on the weak side.
Tinoisamoa led the Rams in tackles four times since being drafted in the second round in 2003, including last season when he recorded a career-high 104 to go along with three sacks and two forced fumbles.
