Source: OT Jake Matthews to visit Bills Tuesday



(WGR 550) -- Since the start of April the Buffalo Bills have kept themselves busy with pre-draft visits for prospects available in the 2014 NFL Draft. Having been connected with the Bills through many mock drafts over the months, Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews will visit Buffalo.

According to a league source, the Bills are scheduled to host Matthews on his official pre-draft visit Tuesday. Of the prospects that have visited Orchard Park, Matthews is far and away the one with the highest profile for not only his ability, but for his family ties as well.

Matthews is the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews, and turned a successful career at Texas A&M into a likely top-10 selection in the draft. The offensive lineman checked in at the NFL Combine at 6-foot-5 and 308-pounds.

He started 46 games throughout his collegiate career, starting at left tackle during his senior season. As a sophomore and junior, Matthews played right tackle while 2013 first-round pick Luke Joeckel played on the left side.

If report of Toronto bid being maxed out at $1.2 billion is true, what would you think?
  Toronto is dead. The Buffalo Bills are here to stay!!!!
  I'd still be guarded. What if a bidder comes out of nowhere?
