Bills waived LB Kirk Morrison.

Inactive for every game this season in Buffalo, Morrison can play middle and strong-side linebacker and could be of some use as a versatile reserve for a playoff-contender down the stretch. He has $223,000 left on his 2012 salary.

After losing the strong-side job to Arthur Moats, the Bills are now cross-training Kirk Morrison at middle linebacker.

Morrison will be a versatile reserve, backing up Moats and Kelvin Sheppard while likely playing on special teams. He will be the Bills' fourth linebacker.
Fri, Aug 24, 2012 01:27:00 PM

Kirk Morrison is expected to be the starting strong-side linebacker in Dave Wannstedt's 4-3 defense.

Morrison had started 95-of-96 games over six years before playing just 55 of 1,001 defensive snaps in 2011. The 30-year-old averaged 100 tackles per season as the middle linebacker in Oakland, but he does have experience in all three 4-3 linebacker spots. Arthur Moats will continue to be a reserve and special teamer behind Morrison.

Bills re-signed LB Kirk Morrison to a two-year contract.

The Bills are finally succeeding in keeping their own, locking up their fourth impending free agent in five days. Morrison played 14 games as a reserve last season, but he's viewed as the favorite over Arthur Moats to start at strong-side linebacker in Dave Wannstedt's 4-3 defense. The 30-year-old has started 95 of 110 career games.
Fri, Mar 9, 2012 12:10:00 PM

Coach Chan Gailey indicated the Bills have been negotiating with free agents LB Kirk Morrison and LT Demetrius Bell about returning to Buffalo.

Morrison would be the favorite over Arthur Moats to start on the strong side in Dave Wannstedt's 4-3 defense. Bell hasn't been able to stay healthy in four years with the Bills, but he finally turned his athletic gifts into solid production in seven games last season.
Thu, Feb 23, 2012 02:50:00 PM

Bills defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt has expressed a desire to re-sign free agent LB Kirk Morrison.

Morrison barely played after signing with the Bills just before the 2011 season opener, but the 30-year-old has experience at both middle and strong-side linebacker in a 4-3 defense. Buffalo, of course, is transitioning more toward a full-blown 4-3 this offseason. He could back up Kelvin Sheppard and potentially compete for the starting spot on the strong side.

Bills ILB Kirk Morrison (hamstring) is out for Week 3 against New England.

Morrison was active in Week 2 but failed to record a tackle. The veteran is a backup to Nick Barnett and Andra Davis on the inside, and the Bills won't miss his presence on the field.
Sun, Sep 25, 2011 11:27:00 AM

Bills signed ILB Kirk Morrison, formerly of the Jaguars.

The 29-year-old Morrison has registered at least 88 tackles in all six of his seasons, and never missed a game. Pro Football Focus graded Morrison as an impact run defender last season, although he's long been under-appreciated by the NFL. The Bills are stacked at inside linebacker, so it's unclear where Morrison will fit in. We'd expect him to begin his Buffalo career as a backup.

The Jaguars have removed the locker-room nameplates for all of their impending free agents except MLB Kirk Morrison and P Adam Podlesh.

The Jags clearly want both players back. Podlesh wasn't "tendered" as a restricted free agent before the lockout, but the sides are still interested in a long-term agreement. Jacksonville will likely re-sign Morrison to remain the starter at middle linebacker. They need an upgrade on the weak side.
Mon, Jul 25, 2011 06:18:00 PM

Jaguars GM Gene Smith has asked free agent MLB Kirk Morrison to stay in contact once he begins to shop his services around on the open market.

"What happens with this unique year we're in is there's a short window to go somewhere else and learn a new system and get evaluated and have a chance to compete and make a roster," Smith said. "To him, it might be in his best interest to stay here." Justin Durant won't be re-signed, but the Jags want Morrison back to pair with fellow veteran Darryl Smith as the linebacker nucleus.

The Jaguars are expected to attempt to re-sign free agent MLB Kirk Morrison after failing to use a single draft pick on the position.

Morrison also "wants to come back," per the Florida Times Union's Tania Ganguli. The 29-year-old ranked second on the Jags in tackles last year, behind SLB Daryl Smith. GM Gene Smith won't break the bank to retain Morrison, but it sounds like he'd be amenable to a reasonable contract to stay in Jacksonville.
Sun, May 1, 2011 08:42:00 PM

Free agent MLB Kirk Morrison thinks his chances of being re-signed by the Jaguars will come down to how they fare in the draft.

With fellow linebacker Justin Durant expected to walk in free agency, the Jags are likely to target the position this Thursday through Saturday. But if they miss out on an upgrade, Morrison will have a shot to return. He struggled badly against the pass last season and ended up with just 89 tackles.
Mon, Apr 25, 2011 10:46:00 AM

Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union believes there remains a slight chance the Jaguars could re-sign free agent MLB Kirk Morrison.

However, Frenette believes that "slight chance" will only come if the Jaguars fail to find an upgrade in free agency or the draft. After posting five straight 100-tackle campaigns with the Raiders to begin his NFL career, Morrison notched just 89 takedowns in 2010, and is no longer much of an IDP factor.
Sat, Apr 16, 2011 09:32:00 AM

Jaguars acquired MLB Kirk Morrison from the Raiders in exchange for the No. 108 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Jacksonville was seeking an inside linebacker, and was believed to be heavily interested in Rolando McClain before Oakland surprised the world with a sensible pick and drafted him eighth overall. Morrison, 28, isn't a true thumper, but is annually among the most productive linebackers in the league and has proven incredibly durable. He should remain a top-10 IDP LB behind Terrance Knighton and rookie Tyson Alualu in Jacksonville.
