Torbor playing outside

Reggie Torbor, the newest addition to the Buffalo Bills' linebacking corps, was playing on the outside during the team's practice Tuesday on the grass field outside the fieldhouse.

Torbor spent the past two years as the backup inside linebacker for the Miami Dolphins. He was released by Miami on May 27 and agreed to terms with the Bills on Saturday.

"Right now I'm playing outside," Torbor said after the team's voluntary workout. "I understand that can change on a need basis. I take that as a positive thing. Right now that's where it's starting."

He gives the Bills another option at outside linebacker, and the Bills look like they could use as many options as they can get in the pass-rushing department. The Bills ranked 19th in the 32-team NFL last season in sacks per pass attempt by opponents. They finished with 32 sacks.

Torbor had 10.5 sacks as a senior at Auburn. But he has just 6.5 in six seasons in the NFL - the first four with the Giants and the last two with Miami. He didn't get many sack chances as a backup inside backer with the Dolphins. He didn't force his way onto the field much as a pass rusher on a star-studded defense with the Giants.

"I haven't played outside since I was with New York," he said. "So it's kind of a process getting back into it today and relearning out there. But it's fun."
