What a coincidence .... he's an ex-Dolphin.

Bills add another ex-Dolphins linebacker
By Tim Graham

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills are loading up on Miami Dolphins castoffs before their game Sunday in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The Bills on Friday announced they've placed inside linebacker Kawika Mitchell on season-ending injured reserve and signed Akin Ayodele, who spent the past two years as a starter for the Miami Dolphins.

The signing will allow Ayodele to continue his remarkable streak of games played for an inside linebacker. He hasn't missed a game since he entered the NFL as a third-round pick out of Purdue in 2002. He has started all but 11 games over the past seven years.

Ayodele will be reunited with former Dolphins teammate Reggie Torbor. They were handpicked by former Dolphins football operations boss Bill Parcells to help rebuild from a 1-15 season. Both were released after this offseason.

Pacells coached Ayodele with the Dallas Cowboys and swung a trade to acquire him and tight end Anthony Fasano at the 2008 draft.

Miami tired of Ayodele because he was a huge liability against the pass. The coaching staff got sick of giving up mortifying plays in the middle of the field and whacked Ayodele and safety Gibril Wilson.

The Denver Broncos signed Ayodele in April, but he didn't survive training camp.

Mitchell was a starter last season until a knee injury ended his season after five games. In the Bills' conversion to a 3-4 defense, Mitchell took a back seat to Paul Posluszny and Andra Davis.

This should be good then, if the coaches were sick of his deficiencies they should certainly know how to expose them...

I hope he starts. Fasano should be open all day if he does.

Iowa beat me to it. I really hope he starts. He'll be getting knocked around pretty good, and yeah, the TE's will be open down the seem all day.

This actually makes me feel better about our chances against them! hahaha

I think Ayodele is a nice guy but he has really fallen off as a LB. I remember he missing on so many tackles last year and apparently he did the same thing in his short time in Denver before getting cut.
