The Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with Kevin Kolb on a two-year, $13 million deal, according to report from Adam Caplan on Twitter.

Kolb was cut earlier this month by Arizona in order for the Cardinals to save $7.5 million against the 2013 cap.

Kolb passed for 1,166 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions in six games with the Cardinals last season. The Cardinals ranked 28th in passing offense last season, while the Bills ranked 25th.


Buccaneers sign ex-Eagle Derek Landri

The Buccaneers and former Eagles defensive tackle Derek Landri have agreed to terms on a two-year, $3.25 million contract, reports Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (via ProFootballTalk). 

The 29 year-old Landri recorded 39 total tackles in two seasons with the Eagles.

Tampa Bay’s signing of Landri comes after Bucs starting tackle Roy Miller signed with the Jaguars in free agency. The Buccaneers will be Landri’s fourth team, following stints in Jacksonville, Carolina, and Philadelphia.


Buffalo adds Matt Barkley to workout list
Matt Barkley is set to become the latest quarterback to work out for the Buffalo Bills, James Walker of ESPN reports (via ProFootballTalk). 

Barkley had a career completion percentage of 64.1 in his four years in Southern California and sits atop the Trojans' all-time completion list.

Barkley joins a long list of QBs from this year’s draft that the Bills have looked at, including West Virginia’s Geno Smith, Florida State’s E.J. Manuel, Oklahoma’s Landry Jones, Tennessee’s Tyler Bray, and Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib.

Bills staff will travel to L.A. Monday and will also work out one of Barkley's top college targets, USC wide receiver Robert Woods.


CB Brent Grimes signs with Miami Dolphins
MIAMI -- Cornerback Brent Grimes, who missed almost all of last season with an Achilles tendon injury, signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins on Saturday.

Grimes started 28 games for the Atlanta Falcons in 2010-11 but was hurt in their opener last year. He declined to predict whether he'll be able to take part in offseason practices beginning in May.

"I don't have any restrictions right now," he said. "I am running and everything. It's just building up your strength and everything. That's part of the process, but I have plenty of time. With the offseason workouts and getting everything in shape, I will be great."

Grimes is expected to start for the Dolphins, who lost Sean Smith via free agency to the Kansas City Chiefs (see full story).
