Scott BairReport LB Zach Brown to visit Raiders facility

The free agent market for Buffalo Bills free agent linebacker Zach Brown had been awfully quiet since unrestricted players were open to sign with new teams last Thursday, but on Wednesday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that he was making a visit to the Oakland Raiders.

Brown spent just one year with the Bills, after playing with the Titans for four years.

He made a huge impact in Rex Ryan's hybrid defense at inside linebacker alongside Preston Brown, racking up 149 tackles, four sacks, two forced fumbles, one interception and four pass breakups.

At the end of the 2016 season, Brown would be named a second-team All-Pro.

It's looked the whole time like he wouldn't stay in Buffalo.

"Bro, I'm a miss playing next to you on Sundays, my brother".

Brown is one of the top available defensive free agents and should see a significant pay raise from the small "prove it" deal he signed a year ago.

The Raiders are looking for better play from that spot as they attempt to improve a defence that ranked in the bottom half of the league in most categories last season.

The linebacker would go on to have a career-year with the Bills. If that's the case, he'd probably enjoy playing for the Raiders.
