James Walker of ESPN.com reports that the team has agreed to a contract extension with starting right guard Kraig Urbik. According to Walker, the deal is for four years and $15 million although there’s no mention of how much of that money may be guaranteed.
Urbik took over the starting job in 2011 and has started all 11 games that he’s played for the Bills this season. He was originally a third-round pick of the Steelers in the 2009 draft, but was waived before the start of his second season.
The Bills offensive line has helped C.J. Spiller cross the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career this season. Urbik isn’t the last piece of housekeeping they’ll need to do if they want to return that line intact next season. Left guard Andy Levitre is also playing out the final year of his contract and it will almost certainly take longer to get a new deal done for him as he comes off a very strong season up front in Buffalo.
