As of late Thursday night free agent linebacker Zach Brown is still available. He took a trip to the West Coast (just like all them ’13 boys) to meet with the Oakland Raiders however reportedly left without signing a contract.
Many Buffalo Bills fans’ thought once that visit was announced he’d surely join up with UB Alum Khalil Mack in the silver and black. With no deal reached as of now, Bills linebacker Preston Brown is publicly reaching out to his former teammate to return to Buffalo. And it’s hilarious:

It’s not the first time Preston Brown has used Twitter to get some sort of messages across to Zach Brown about coming back to Western New York but it’s probably his best work. Even though this won’t make any difference in the long run, it’s entertaining and refreshing to see that side of a professional athletes’ world.
In regards to a reunion, per what we’ve come to expect from the Bills (mostly) new regime there’s not much chatter about whether or not they’d like to retain ZB’s services. After a Pro Bowl 2016 performance that saw the sixth-year linebacker among the league leaders in tackles for a majority of the season, he could be out of Buffalo’s price range.
Or Head Coach Sean McDermott just doesn’t think Brown would be a good fit for his defense. Lack of speed is definitely an issue at linebacker right now for the Bills which is actually one of #53’s strengths. No matter what happens, Preston Brown courting Zach Brown with a meme/GIF at 10pm at night will always be awesome!
