Troy Vincent chooses Buffalo

Postby DUKE » Mon Mar 15, 2004 4:15 pm

I heard Marvin Lewis say that Vincent decided on Buffalo on an interview this afternoon. I don't beleive there is an official press release yet, but I'm sure one of us can post one as soon as it comes. It sounds like it's pretty much a done deal. Kinda sucks for Cincy.

Comcast SportsNet has learned that cornerback Troy Vincent has agreed to terms with the Buffalo Bills. The deal, expected to be for six years and $20 million, including a $3.6 million bonus, should be announced shortly.

The 12-year veteran spent eight seasons with the Eagles after signing as a free agent in 1996. Last season, Vincent tied safety Michael Lewis for the team lead with three interceptions and earned his fifth career trip to the Pro Bowl.

Vincent, who turns 33 in June, joins Duce Staley and Carlos Emmons as the free agents to have signed elsewhere this season. Emmons, who signed with the Giants, was the first to go. Staley joined the Steelers last week.

Of the Eagles' four primary free agents, only Vincent's partner in the secondary, Bobby Taylor, remains unsigned. According to Taylor's agent Jason Medlock, the Seahawks remain Taylor's first choice, followed by the Bengals and most recently the Redskins. Medlock also indicated his client has not ruled out the Eagles, but the two sides have not spoken since the end of the season.

Wow, Buffalo was the last of the three I thought Vincent was gonna go to. I thought he was almost a lock for Cinci, and if not possibly KC, Buffalo surprises me, good signing for them though.

6 year deal for a 33 year old player. :-b

Good signing for Buffalo, they should be a good fantasy defense the first half of the year as usual.
