Report: Bills to host troubled Raiders OT Monday

Posted on March 8, 2010 by Patrick Moran

According to a report from WIVB, Oakland Raiders free agent offensive tackle Cornell Green will visit with the Buffalo Bills today (Monday).

The 10-year veteran has been with the Raiders the past three years, starting 38 games, mostly at right tackle.

During his career he’s also played for the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos. He was signed an undrafted free agent in 1999 after playing for Central Florida in college.

Green has had trouble with the law over the past year.  In March of 2009 he was arrested and charged with domestic violence in Florida.

According to a USA Today report, the Tampa police said Green became violent during an argument at his home there with the mother of his two children. Police said Green slammed 30-year-old Teriyonal Ebony Flowers into a wall, then struck her right arm with an aluminum mop handle.

The police said he then fled the house and was later arrested at Tampa International Airport before a flight he had planned to take to Oakland.

The Bills have an obvious need to fill at right tackle following the unexpected retirement of Brad Butler last month.

Early indication upon researching  his on-field performance is not promising. Given that and the obvious assault case from less than a year ago, I’m frankly stunned the Bills are even considering this guy.

    Marshawn Lynch should be happy about this guy since, next to him, Lynch’s rap sheet looks pretty good!
