Saints FB Kyle Eckel Worked Out For Buffalo Bills


Saint free agent fullback Kyle Eckel worked out for the Buffalo Bills yesterday according to several reports.

Buffalo apparently is looking upgrade the full back position and replace starter Corey McIntyre who was involved in a bizarre incident in Florida last year when a woman claimed he exposed himself to her.

He was subsequently arrested but there is no indication the Bills organization is looking to replace him solely because of that incident.

Eckel has bounced around the league since joining the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2005 also spending time with the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles.

He was signed by the Saints in October of 2009 after starter Heath Evans went down with an ACL tear during a game against the Miami Dolphins, he appeared in seven games rushing twice for six yards.

Evans will return as the starter for the 2010-2011 season and the Saints signed 49ers full back Zak Keasey this off-season making Eckel expendable.
