NFL Free Agency Rumors: Buffalo Bills Target Tyson Clabo

While the Falcons have been fighting hard to keep OT Tyson Clabo in Atlanta, other teams have also shown heavy interest in him. Earlier today, Jason La Canfora reported that both the Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks have inquired about his services.

However, with Adam Schefter reporting that the Seahawks have agreed to a three-year deal with former Raiders tackle/guard Robert Gallery, it seems unlikely that they will continue their pursuit of Clabo. That essentially brings it down to the Falcons and Bills battling it out to sign Clabo.

Make no mistake, keeping Clabo is and has been the team's No. 1 task this offseason. The Falcons simply cannot afford to lose him, with a lack of proven depth at the offensive tackle position.

What it will ultimately come down to is how Clabo ranks his priorities: if money is most important, then he will likely sign with the Bills who had almost $38M worth of cap space under the new CBA. However, if Clabo wants to play for a winning team, inside a nice, warm dome, he'll sign with the Falcons.
