Another former Jet is Buffalo-bound.

On Monday, the Bills announced they have signed defensive lineman Leger Douzable.

A source told Newsday it’s a one-year deal, though the terms are not yet known.

The announcement came just hours after the Bills hosted the former Jets backup at their Orchard Park facility.

Douzable, 30, played three of his eight NFL seasons with the Jets. The 6-4, 284-pound Central Florida product signed with the Vikings as an an undrafted free agent in 2008 before spending time with the Giants, Rams, Lion, Jaguars, Titans and Jets.

He’s appeared in 91 games, registering 116 tackles (67 solo) and five sacks.

Douzable is the latest in a string of players coached by Rex Ryan with the Jets who have made the switch to the Bills. Ryan coached the Jets for six seasons before he was fired and later hired by Buffalo in January 2015.
