Former Jags RB Montell Owens at Bills practice this morning

Looks like former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Montell Owens, a two-time special-teams Pro Bowler, might be on the verge of joining the Buffalo Bills.

Owens, wearing Bills team-issued shorts, spent this morning watching practice at One Bills Drive.

The Bills have not made an announcement about an Owens signing. He does not appear on the updated roster as of the time of this posting.

Owens played both halfback and fullback for the Jaguars. The eighth-year pro started his first four NFL games last season with Maurice Jones-Drew sidelined by a foot injury. Owens had 209 yards and a touchdown on 42 carries. He had only 18 touches in his first six seasons.

He was selected for the Pro Bowl in 2010 and 2011 and holds Jacksonville's club record with 118 special-teams tackles.
