According to Adam Schefter, free agent running back TJ Yeldon visited the Buffalo Bills today. Yeldon has played the first four years of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars after being drafted back in 2015.
Over the last two seasons, Yeldon’s playing time was inconsistent due to injury in 2017 and because of the addition of Leonard Fournette. Despite the fluctuation of snaps, Yeldon has shown to be a solid three-down running back for he has a career average of four yards per carry and 171 receptions.
Although the Bills have already had pro bowl running back LeSean McCoy and have recently signed veteran Frank Gore, it is still probably in the teams best interest to invest in a third option. Gore is about to enter his 15th season and McCoy is coming off of the worst rushing season of his career.
Even if Yeldon is signed as the third back, he could still have a large role with the offense.
