AP source: Offensive tackle Cherilus visiting Buffalo Bills

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) A person familiar with the visit tells The Associated Press that free-agent offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus is meeting with the Buffalo Bills to determine their interest in signing him.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Wednesday because the Bills have not announced the visit. NFL.com first reported the meeting.

The visit takes place three days after the 31-year-old was released by the Indianapolis Colts, and as the Bills prepare to open training camp in suburban Rochester on Friday.

The Colts cut Cherilus because of concerns they had of him coming off knee surgery.

Cherilus started 29 games for Indianapolis over the past two seasons. He spent his first five seasons as a starter with the Detroit Lions, who selected Cherilus with the 17th pick in the 2008 draft.
