It appears the Buffalo Bills are still looking to add some running back depth before the 2019 season begins.

ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday that free agent running back T.J. Yeldon has paid a visit with the Bills.

Yeldon spent the last four seasons in Jacksonville after being selected by the Jaguars in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. The 25-year-old University of Alabama product finished with just 414 rushing yards and one touchdown in 14 games last season. Yeldon is a bit more of a third down, pass-catching running back. He averaged 3.4 receptions per-game in his four seasons with the Jaguars and tallied 30 or more catches in each season. He set a new career-high with 55 receptions in 2018. 

The Bills brought in veteran running back Frank Gore earlier this offseason and released Chris Ivory. Along with Gore, there are currently five other running backs on Buffalo's roster, which includes LeSean McCoy, Marcus Murphy, Keith Ford, Senorise Perry and Christian Wade.
