The Bills signed former Redskin Trent Murphy on Wednesday. On Friday, Murphy said in an interview on the John Murphy Show that he might have a former teammate coming to Buffalo as his roommate.
Compton, who is listed at 6-foot-1, 235 pounds, played in nine games last season for Washington with three starts, 19 tackles and an interception. His season ended in mid-November with a Lisfranc foot sprain. In 2016, he had a career-high 106 tackles and started 15 games.
He signed with Washington as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska in 2013 and became a regular starter in 2015.
The Bills lost linebacker Preston Brown to the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday and are in need of depth at the position.
